During this period, Apple, which uses the year as the update frequency, will launch a new iPhone to maintain sales next year; mobile phone manufacturers in the Android camp are also gearing up to deal with a new round of market competition.
With the launch of the Snapdragon 888 Plus, the Android camp began to focus on updating, which can be roughly divided into two categories: one is iterative upgrades, such as Xiaomi MIX 4, Honor Magic 3, iQOO 8 Pro and other models, and the other is small Under the premise of version update and core change, only some details have been changed.
So what will their performance be like? Mobile Update’s August Android phone performance list was announced.
The time for data statistics is from August 1st to August 31st, 2021. The results in the list are the average scores instead of the highest scores, and the data statistics of a single model are > 1000. If a single model has multiple The storage capacity version is on the list, and the version with the highest score is the main one.
Let’s take a look at the flagship model first. I really didn’t expect the first place. It is still the Black Shark 4 Pro, which has dominated the list for many times. The average score is 864614, which is higher than the running score of the Snapdragon 888 Plus model. The reason is also said Many times, the Black Shark has benefited a lot from overtaking in a corner, so that its storage score has a considerable advantage, and it even has the highest statistical effective score.
And what is more rare is that the SSD+UFS 3.1 flash memory combination equipped with the Black Shark 4 Pro is really useful, and the speed of game loading and App installation has been significantly improved, so other manufacturers have not followed up? Weighing the 220g body, it should be out of the regular flagship at present.
However, in terms of absolute performance (referring to CPU/GPU full load), the Black Shark 4 Pro must be behind the Snapdragon 888 Plus models with full frequency, such as the second-place iQOO 8 Pro.
The iQOO 8 Pro is a recently released new phone with an average score of 846351. It is currently the model with the highest running score of the new Snapdragon 888 Plus. After comparing the sub-scores, it is found that the storage score of the phone is outstanding, and then the GPU score, the former It can be attributed to the large storage advantage of 12+512GB, the latter benefiting from high frequency.
In fact, in the Review of iQOO 8 Pro, the author found that the machine has a large power consumption. By checking and comparing, it is found that the GPU frequency of iQOO 8 Pro is relatively high, so it can be concluded that the performance of the machine is unrestrained, but also It may be due to the new machine, which is a little aggressive in the early stage, and may choose to reduce the frequency after considering the power consumption.
The third place is the Tencent Red Magic gaming phone 6 Pro, which has been in the top three ranks in the first few issues. Thanks to the internal stacked heat dissipation materials and the unique small fan to dissipate heat, the SoC maintains a high level for a long time. Frequency, in exchange for high performance, also made the average score reach 829331. Of course, this machine also belongs to the category of overtaking in corners. After all, it has built-in fans and exclusive air ducts. Conventional flagships can’t do it for the beauty of the body.
Others on the list are basically Snapdragon 888 models, and there is nothing to say at present. It is worth mentioning that Xiaomi MIX 4 and Honor Magic 3 series, although MIX 4 is equipped with Snapdragon 888 Plus, but the running score is not as good as some Snapdragon 888 models, because of the system mechanism of the machine, MIX 4 provides power saving, There are three modes of balance and performance. The default mode is the balance mode, which is to limit the frequency of the SoC in exchange for stable power consumption. Therefore, it can be inferred that most MIX 4 runs in the balance mode, not the highest performance.
The model with the highest running score in the Honor Magic 3 series is the Magic 3 Pro Premium Edition, which has more conservative performance scheduling. It is basically the same as the MIX 4, which is at the expense of frequency limiting in order to control power consumption and limit heat generation.
Next is the performance ranking of Android mid-range mobile phones. There are few new mid-range phones released in August, so the ranking has not changed much compared to the previous issue.
The first-ranked model is still the Xiaomi Mi 11 Youth Edition, which is equipped with the Snapdragon 780G built with the 5nm process, with an average score of 530657. With such performance, the power consumption is also very stable. After all, 5nm belongs to the flagship process.
It is a pity that the Snapdragon 780G may not be seen in the future. Due to the lack of cores, the 5nm production line is tight, and the flagship still needs to be filled, let alone the mid-range Snapdragon 780G, which is only available to the Xiaomi Mi 11 Youth Edition.
The second and third place is the Honor 50 series, both equipped with the Snapdragon 778G, with an average score of 511155 and 506774. Both the Snapdragon 778G and the Snapdragon 780G have the A78 core blessing. There is not much performance gap, but the former is a 6nm process. In terms of theoretical power consumption, it is definitely not as good as the 5nm process, but now there is no choice, and the Snapdragon 778G is not bad.
The rest of the list are old models, such as OPPO Reno6 5G and Redmi 10X 5G, which have been said many times in the previous issues, and you are all familiar with them, so there is no waste of space.
The above is all the content of Mobile Update’s Android mobile phone performance list in August. With the addition of the Snapdragon 888 Plus model in the flagship, the ranking began to change. However, the Black Shark 4 Pro “doesn’t talk about martial arts” and maintains its lead with storage advantages. At the top of the list, and the Snapdragon 888 Plus has a small performance improvement, so it is difficult to win the first place.
But you must know that the Snapdragon 888 Plus has absolute performance advantages after all, and many corresponding terminals will be launched in the future. For example, the officially announced Red Devils gaming phone 6S Pro is said to use a new heat dissipation material, and it is expected to improve again with its excellent heat dissipation. Android phone performance limit.
In the mid-range, there may be very few new phones released in the near future. The global core shortage problem cannot be solved for a while. The new mid-range SoC is difficult to mass-produce despite planning, so it can only be released first.
It is foreseeable that a wave of new Snapdragon 888 Plus phones will be launched in the next September, so who will replace the long-standing Black Shark 4 Pro? See you next time.
