Even if the iPhone 14 is the most powerful phone ever, that’s not enough

I must confess, I didn’t quite ‘get’ the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 as soon as I heard about it. It’s a new, super-powerful chipset from Qualcomm that’ll come to Android phones toward the end of 2022, and a small step up over the 8 Gen 1 already seen in the OnePlus 10 Pro, Xiaomi 12, and members of the Samsung Galaxy S22 family that launched in the US.

The flagship features include 10% faster CPU performance, 10% faster GPU clock speeds and 20% better AI power efficiency – and if your eyes glazed over when you started reading that, we don’t blame you. It’s not exactly a sexy new smartphone component, and it’s very much the definition of ‘an incremental upgrade’.
