Just entering 2022, I didn’t expect the digital circle to be lively. After Motorola and Xiaomi, two second-tier mobile phone brands also released mobile phones equipped with a new generation of Snapdragon 8 processors. I thought they could seize the opportunity, but I didn’t expect it. But staged the first “rollover” drama in the digital circle in 2022. Apple watched the movie across the bank, after all, there was nothing to do with the iPhone.
Although iQOO and realme are second-tier mobile phone brands, they are “faster” than traditional major manufacturers. After Xiaomi, new phones were quickly released, namely the iQOO 9 series and the realme GT2 series. Both series are equipped with the Snapdragon 8 processor. There are only 4 new models equipped with the Snapdragon 8 processor on the market, but sometimes “fast” is not a good thing, and it will “turn over” if you are not careful.
After the release of the iQOO 9 series, Xiaobai evaluated the iQOO 9 Pro, but the results were not satisfactory. It can be described as “rollover”. Although Xiaobai also explained at the time, An important software tuning team is trapped in Xi’an, but it seems that netizens don’t pay the bill, and it seems reasonable to say “why do you want to release it if you haven’t debugged it”.
iQOO 9 is less than half a year away from the release of the previous iQOO 8 series, so the update speed is indeed a bit too fast. Judging from the data evaluated by Xiaobai, iQOO 9 Pro is obviously unable to control the “Snapdragon 8” fire dragon. “The Original God” dropped frames crazily in the first 5 minutes of the game, and the extreme performance was conservatively released. Obviously, it has not been optimized. Although the performance of the fever test is pretty good, is this scheduling strategy of giving up frame rate in exchange for fever, worthy of the game genes of the iQOO digital series?
Moreover, the main improvement of the Snapdragon 8 processor is the extreme performance. If the scheduling strategy of iQOO 9 Pro is adopted, it seems that the cart is turning the cart before the horse. In addition, the design of the iQOO 9 Pro is too similar to that of the Xiaomi 11 Ultra, so when this phone was just released, its reputation was not very good. Even if it is equipped with 120W fast charging, customized large-size dual speakers and dual X-axis linear motors, consumers do not pay the bill.
Compared with iQOO 9 Pro, the performance of realme GT2 Pro does not seem to be that bad. In terms of appearance design, realme GT2 Pro has already won the starting line. The design by Naoto Fukasawa will naturally not be so bad. In terms of configuration, realme GT2 Pro is also full of sincerity. In addition to being equipped with a 2K screen and adaptive refresh rate, the image performance is also quite good, and realme’s scheduling is more radical. But the only pity is that for the “4700mAh+120W flash charge” configuration of iQOO 9, the “5000mAh+65W fast charge” of realme GT2 Pro is slightly inferior.
So from the current point of view, the Snapdragon 8 processor is still a difficult guy to deal with, it is not wise to grab “fast”, maybe you can wait a little longer. After all, there are still new phones released, such as the Redmi K50 to be released next month, at least there will be an advantage in price, what do you think?
