2020 Tenaa Annual Flagship Phone Review (basic Performance Chapter): Mobile Phone Experience From Here

[Bestbuy618 Mobile Channel]In this section, we focus on testing the phone’s basic hardware experience, such as performance, network, battery life, and charging. These aspects are critical to the phone’s experience, and we try to restore the actual performance of each phone as much as possible through actual scenario testing. As the foundation of user experience, let’s look at the main hardware parameters of the seven cell phones involved in the test. It can be seen that, regardless of whether you’re an Android or an Apple fan, Qualcomm is the upstream supplier that cell phone manufacturers cannot ignore.

Four of the seven cell phones use the full Qualcomm Snapdragon solution, i.e. Snapdragon 865 SoC Snapdragon X55 baseband configuration Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 SoC Snapdragon X55 baseband configuration Although Apple has the ability to develop its own SoC, if Intel’s baseband fails to pick up the slack, Apple can only reluctantly pay Qualcomm to purchase the X55 baseband.

According to foreign media reports, Qualcomm X55 to Apple’s shipping price is twice the cost of the 5nm A14 Bionic. What is special is Vivo’s X60 Pro, whose first Samsung Exynos 1080 uses the same 5nm process as Apple’s A14 Bionic, but the baseband model is not officially announced, given that Samsung Exynos also has a 5G baseband output, so the Vivo X60 Pro may use the full Samsung solution.

One plus 8 Pro and OPPO Find X2 Pro used the same 2K resolution 120Hz high brush screen, another said that one plus and OPPO share a screen, so the two are not only similar parameters, but also the actual look and feel is the same top. High power fast charging has a huge impact on the user’s habits, but in order to achieve it, the phone’s internal structure also has to pay a price, the representative models are iQOO 5 Pro and OPPO Find X2 Pro, in order to control the heat and to ensure a longer peak power, these two models are using a double cell, so the battery capacity is in On the other hand, the charging power for the OnePlus 8 Pro, which has a capacity of 4510mAh with a single-cell configuration, is only 30W, but there are exceptions: the Huawei Mate40 Pro also uses a single-cell, but the power is 66W, which is theoretically slightly inferior to the dual-cell OPPO in terms of heat control and charging speed. Furthermore, the same dual-cell OPPO Reno5 Pro has achieved a battery capacity of 4500mAh, which is commendable. Let’s take a look at how these phones perform in daily use.

It’s difficult to imagine them lagging because they all use 2020’s top flagship chips. With a super high refresh rate of 120Hz, the OnePlus 8 Pro, OPPO Find X2 Pro, Vivo X60 Pro, and iQOO 5 Pro all exhibit excellent visual appeal. Huawei Mate40 Pro and OPPO Reno5 Pro with 90Hz refresh rate screen are also not bad, but there is still a gap compared to 120Hz screen.

It is unfortunate that the Apple iPhone 12 Pro, iOS system animation to all Android manufacturers set an example to learn, but The game I chose to test is “Peace Elite,” because the performance requirements are relatively high, but the game is also hot enough that the test results will be more reference value for most users.

For the image quality, we chose “Ultra HD” and “Ultra High Frame Rate” (40Fps), which is the highest image quality that most flagships can have at the moment. Unfortunately, the Vivo X60 Pro is not available in “Ultra HD” mode and cannot be adapted to the test platform we are using, possibly due to adaptation, so it cannot be presented in this test. In this regard, the performance of OnePlus and iQOO is impressive; both achieved the fewest lags and no significant lags.

The iPhone, Huawei, and OPPO Reno5 Pro all performed admirably. In contrast, the OPPO Find X2 Pro showed a relatively high number of lagging, although 2.5 is not much, but compared to other flagships, it is slightly inferior in terms of data; additionally, I noticed a difference in the use of resources between the Android camp and the iPhone.

Several Android flagship phones have a peak memory footprint of more than 1GB, whereas the iPhone has a memory footprint of less than 900MB. As a result, the iPhone 12 series dares to start with 4GB, with a maximum configuration of only 6GB.

Shenzhen will be the first city in China to have full 5G independent group network coverage in August 2020, marking the city’s transition to the 5G era. Similarly, phones released in 2020 are essentially 5G phones, especially in the flagship market, where 5G is already standard; several of the flagships tested had excellent network performance in the city center, and comparing them doesn’t really show the gap between them. As a result, we went to Dapeng New District, Shenzhen’s “edge.” We chose two test sites in Dapeng: one indoors around the Dapeng Shoucheng attraction, where the 5G network should be relatively stable due to the attraction’s proximity. The other test location is on the beach, which is an extreme scenario to test the phone’s ability to receive signals in the signal edge area.

In the actual test, seven flagships were connected to the 5G network without pressure indoors near the scenic spot. In terms of download rate, Huawei and OnePlus performed admirably and were far ahead of the other flagships. The iPhone 12 Pro and the OPPO Find X2 Pro, on the other hand, performed slightly worse, with download rates of less than 100Mbps.

Except for the OnePlus 8 Pro and the OPPO Reno5 Pro, all of them had comparable upload speeds.iPhone12 ProHuawei Mate40 ProOnePlus 8 Pro

According to the test results, the performance of these flagships is subpar. Three of them, the iPhone 12 Pro, Vivo X60 Pro, and iQOO 5 Pro, lost their 5G networks, but the “blessing in disguise” is that these three phones ran with 4G networks faster than most of the phones connected to 5G, particularly iQOO and Vivo.

Huawei performed the best among the models connected to 5G, with a download rate of 27.8Mbps, followed by the OPPO Find X2 Pro with a download rate of 22.4Mbps.

Surprisingly, the OnePlus 8 Pro, which performs well in areas with strong signal, is the worst performer in extreme scenarios, with a download rate of less than 10Mbps and an upload rate of less than 2Mbps.iPhone12 ProHuawei Mate40 ProOnePlus 8 ProOPPO Find X2 ProOPPO Reno5 Pro

vivo X60 ProiQOO 5 Pro When the two scenarios are combined, Huawei’s performance is the most stable of any phone, and it has excellent speed performance whether in suburban areas with better signal or in extreme edge scenarios. This is not unrelated to Huawei’s long history of technological accumulation in the communications field, and the Baron 5000 really showed its strength in both scenarios. The signal performance of the iPhone 12 Pro is not exactly bright, but it is very close compared to other Android phones and does not present the signal dilemma on the iPhone 11 series.

Continuity and charging have always been important indicators in cell phone purchases, and with the arrival of the 5G era, the weight of these two points has become increasingly high. Continuity, I did a test on these seven phones in unison, the test conditions and content include. One hour of Peace Elite game with “Ultra HD” “Ultra High Frame Rate” (because the Vivo X60 Pro couldn’t open “Ultra HD,” the test was “HDR HD” “Ultra High Frame Rate”), and the phone screen and sound were kept at a close level. After one hour of online 1080P video playback, the phone screen’s brightness and sound remain close to normal.

3 30 minutes of 1080P 60fps video recording with anti-shake turned on and HDR video option turned off. All tests were carried out in a WiFi environment.

After the endurance test, the best endurance performer is Huawei Mate40 Pro, with 68 percent remaining, followed by OPPO Reno5 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro, both with 66 percent and 65 percent remaining, respectively. Despite the fact that it has a 4510mAh battery, only 46 percent of it was left after the test, and the split is even more pronounced when it comes to charging. The charging speed of the iQOO 5 Pro was reduced to an exaggerated 16 minutes with the 120W fast charging power, which is almost as long as it takes to get up in the morning, dress, and brush your teeth.

The 65W-supported OPPO system and the 66W Huawei Mate40 Pro also performed well, with the dual-cell OPPO system taking close to 30 minutes to charge. The Huawei Mate40 Pro uses a single-cell solution, and its peak power cannot be maintained for an extended period of time, so it took 47 minutes; the 33W Vivo X60 Pro and the 30W OnePlus 8 Pro also performed as expected; and the iPhone 12 Pro is a major disappointment in terms of charging performance.

Although the power is only 20W, the battery capacity is only 2,815mAh, and the final elapsed time is only up to 100 minutes, which is a significant difference between other Android flagships.

We discovered that the Huawei Mate40 Pro has a very good overall performance in all tests by testing performance, network, battery life, and charging. A lot of these performances are due to the contribution of the Kirin 9000 SoC, but unfortunately, Kirin chip has now been forced to end production, selling one less than the other. On the other hand, we discovered that the latest OPPO Reno5 Pro has basically surpassed the old flagship OPPO Find X2 Pro in these aspects, so it is clear that the theory of buying new electronic products not for long still applies.

The 120W fast charging speed of the iQOO 5 Pro is astounding; in the next year of the cell phone market, such high-power fast charging is likely to become the flagship standard, influencing user habits.
