A recent test by Ookla Speedtest Intelligence found that the latest Qualcomm processor Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 mobile processor has the lowest power consumption of any Android flagship chip when using 5G and 4G-LTE networks. The test compared the power consumption of the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 to four other leading chips: Samsung’s Exynos 2200, MediaTek’s Dimensity 9200, Google’s Tensor G2, and the previous generation Snapdragon 8 Gen 1.
The results showed that the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 consumed 31% when using 5G, and consumed 25% when using 4G-LTE. The Exynos 2200, Dimensity 9200, and Tensor G2 also consumed less power than the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1, but not as much as the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2.
The test also found that using 5G networks generally results in higher power consumption than using 4G-LTE networks. However, the difference in power consumption between the two networks was relatively small, with 5G networks only consuming 6-11% more power than 4G-LTE networks.
The results of this test suggest that the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 is the most power-efficient Android flagship chip currently available. This could lead to longer battery life for phones that use the chip, as well as improved performance and thermals.
In addition to power efficiency, the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 also offers a number of other improvements over the previous generation chip. These include a faster CPU and GPU, as well as support for the latest 5G standards. The chip is expected to be used in a number of high-end Android phones that will be released later this year.
Overall, the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 is a significant improvement over the previous generation chip in terms of power efficiency and performance. It is the clear leader in the Android flagship chip market, and it is likely to remain so for some time.
