It uses the Adreno 660 GPU and there are a lot of flagship smartphones that already use the Snapdragon 888 as the chipset. But I’m going to review 5 different manufacturers.
1. OnePlus 9
OnePlus will always be the Flagship Killer. This phone has a minimalistic design, with premium camera capabilities, and also high-end software. OnePlus has its own user interface called OxygenOS with cool icon apps, and smooth transitions.
OnePlus worked together with Hasselblad to design their advanced photo processing. With 65W charging technology, this phone charges really fast. It just gives you around 30 minutes from 0% battery to 100% battery.
2. Xiaomi Mi 11
Xiaomi will never let you down, the beauty of this phone continues with its screen display and stereo speakers. Using an AMOLED panel it can emit 1.07 billion colors with a maximum brightness of 1500nit, and support 120 Hz screen refresh, with a 55W charger adaptor.
3. ASUS ROG Phone 5
ASUS might be tired of facing the mid-range and entry phone competition. So now they decided to come back and create phones as good as possible for consumers. ROG Phone 5 was designed with Snapdragon 888 as a chipset and flanked by 2 batteries, each with 3000 mAh capacity. And it has a 120Hz screen refresh with good quality stereo speakers. It is just perfect for gaming.
4. Oppo Find X 3 Pro
This phone gives you an amazing ultrawide lens camera, the resolution is both 50 Mega Pixels and both autofocus. It has a 3 MP microscopic lens camera which allows you to photograph tiny creatures like ants, bugs, etc.
Another amazing thing about this phone is that the back of the phone is made from glass and it is bent in such a way that it produces a soft contour as a rim for the rear camera.
It has 65W charging technology and 4500 mAh battery capacity, you need to wait just 10 minutes from 0% to 40%.
5. Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3
The main screen uses an advanced foldable dynamic AMOLED panel which is claimed to be safe for thousands of folds. When in open conditions, the screen measures 6.7 inches, and there’s a small screen in the back with 1.9 inches which can be used for simple navigation when the phone is folded.
It has ultrawide and wide lens camera both has 12 Mega Pixels resolution, on the screen its uses 10 MP with Infinity-O Samsung’s characteristic.
Unfortunately, the battery capacity is only 3000 mAh, the small capacity of this battery seems to adjust to the limited body because it has to be folded.
