Qualcomm has two processors that will power the flagship phones of this year. There is the Snapdragon 888 which we have seen in premium phones such as the Galaxy S21 series and Xiaomi Mi 11. The second is the Snapdragon 870 which will power more affordable flagships or the phones that fall under the ”flagship killer” category.
Both chipsets pack a punch but we know the Snapdragon 888 is the more powerful chipset. It not only has a better CPU and GPU but it is more efficient thanks to its smaller node size, 5nm against the Snapdragon 870’s 7nm. However, reviews have revealed that the Snapdragon 888 has heating issues.
The Snapdragon 870, on the other hand, takes the already great Snapdragon 865 Plus to another level with its higher clock speed. We haven’t seen reviews yet as the first commercially available phone to be powered by the chipset is yet to launch.
For this week’s poll, we want to know which of these processors you want in your next smartphone. Will you choose a phone powered by the Snapdragon 888 5G or will you choose a phone powered by the Snapdragon 870 5G?
