Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 and 810, what are the differences?


The official launch of LG G4 on 28 carries giving a lot of talk in recent days about all for its decision to have ignored the Snapdragon 810, the jewel in the crown of Qualcomm, and have equipped their latest flagship with a slightly lower model such as the Snapdragon 808.

But is it really so abysmal difference between the two processors made by Qualcomm hace year? And if not, What exactly are these differences? Today we will try to clear these doubts, and for this we will break down the characteristics of each of these two very powerful processors.

Are so many differences?

As we see, in essence both processors are practically identical. Large differences the addition of the two cores found in more than top model in the Snapdragon 810 has a better GPU and as many APIs for advanced graphics, which is especially noticeable on the playtime.

But if you are not of those few euros per month spent on buy the latest and most demanding games landing in the catalog of Android, and therefore does not need as much muscle, both devices are virtually identical. This means that mobile phone use in our daily should not notice much difference.

In this way, when the truth factors tilt the balance to mobile using one or the other processor have little to do with the Snapdragon, and would be the ability of your battery, camera or even the furnishing panel or the final price, something I recently talked to when nos wondered if a high range can compete on equal terms with others without having the best SoC
