The best smartphones with the Snapdragon 865 processor: faster, cooler, more powerful

If you are demanding of gadgets and select only high-performance devices with the highest technical characteristics, pay attention to smartphones with the Snapdragon 865 processor on board. This state-of-the-art chipset from Qualcomm can easily handle almost any task you put in front of it. It comes with a large amount of RAM and an excellent GPU, so you will not have problems with the most complex games and multitasking.

Currently, the range of phones with Snapdragon 865 is not so large, but there are a number of interesting models that have already been released.

Samsung Galaxy S20

The US-made Galaxy S20, S20 Plus and S20 Ultra models run on Snapdragon 865, but in Europe and other regions you will find the Exynos 990 chipset under the hood.

All three phones are equipped with 120 Hz displays, they support wireless charging and have a dust and moisture protection class of IP68. With all of the above in the kit, you get a sub-screen fingerprint scanner and expandable built-in memory. Unfortunately, there is no 3.5 mm headphone jack.

The S20 Ultra is the most powerful phone in the series, offering not only the largest diagonal display, but also the best cameras, and the most capacious battery. Next on the list is the S20 Plus, followed by the standard S20 model. Although there are differences between them, they are all flagship devices that will meet the demands of hardcore users.

LG V60 ThinQ

This is the best smartphone manufactured by LG at the moment. In addition to the Snapdragon 865 chipset, the LG V60 offers users an IP68 protection class and a design that meets the MIL-STD 810G military standard for durability and impact resistance. In addition, fans of high-quality sound will be pleased with the presence of an audio jack, a four-channel DAC and stereo speakers.The LG flagship features an 8K video recording option, wireless charging, a large battery, and an OLED screen with a built-in fingerprint scanner. This device supports 5G networks, is equipped with expandable internal memory and a large battery with a capacity of 5000 mAh.The only drawback of the model is that it does not have a telephoto lens or a periscope camera, instead of which a 64-megapixel main camera is used to enlarge the image. But this, you will agree, is excusable with the general high-end parameters of the smartphone.

< /p>Oppo Find X2 Pro does not have a unique slider format like its predecessor, but it is able to impress. It offers a great design and most of the flagship features of 2020, including a Snapdragon 865 processor, a bright 6.7-inch QHD + 120 Hz OLED screen, as much as 12 GB of RAM, and a 4260 mAh battery with an incredibly fast 65W charging.The Find X2 Pro camera kit is also on top: a new 48-megapixel sensor that technically outperforms the competition, an ultra-wide-angle 48-megapixel camera, and a 13-megapixel zoom lens with 5x magnification. What you shouldn't expect is 8K video recording, which is provided in most flagships-2020.

This phone is powered by a Snapdragon 865 processor, it is resistant to moisture and dust thanks to the IP68 protection class and is able to work with two SIM cards.

The Xiaomi Mi 10 series

Mi 10 and Mi 10 Pro are two of Xiaomi's best phones that are similar in many ways. Both feature a 6.67-inch curved-edge screen, a Snapdragon 865 chipset, and 12GB of RAM.

The biggest difference between them concerns the cameras - the Pro model naturally offers great opportunities in this area. In addition, this model also supports faster charging (50W instead of 30W), but unfortunately comes with a slightly smaller battery.

In both devices, you'll find a fingerprint scanner, but don't look for a headphone jack - it's missing. The smartphones run Android 10 with a Xiaomi MIUI shell and support reverse wireless charging. In general, these are great gadgets, but keep in mind that they are much more expensive than their predecessors - with them, Xiaomi began to lose its reputation as a manufacturer of affordable flagships.

Sony Xperia 1 II

The flagship from Sony offers users a Snapdragon 865 chipset and 8 GB of RAM, as well as a triple main camera with 12 MP sensors each and a ToF sensor designed to determine the depth of field in the frame. Like most Xperia phones, this model features an elongated screen and a fingerprint scanner located on the side. The advantages include wireless charging, IP68 dust and moisture protection rating, and a 3.5 mm headphone jack. Overall, this is one of the best smartphones running the Snapdragon 865.

The latest flagship series of OnePlus is represented by two models - OnePlus 8 and 8 Pro. The Pro model offers more features, including a higher-resolution screen, an additional camera, a larger battery, and wireless charging.

Otherwise, the two devices have a lot in common. In addition to working on the Snapdragon 865 chipset, both devices also support the ability to connect a second SIM card, offer up to 12 GB of RAM and are equipped with a sub-screen fingerprint scanner. These smartphones are more expensive than previous OnePlus devices, but they are still cheaper than phones from competing manufacturers.

Motorola Edge Plus

This year, Motorola returned to the leadership group with the launch of the flagship Edge Plus. All in all, this is a fine phone that runs on the latest Qualcomm chipset and is equipped with 12GB of RAM.

It features a large screen with curved edges and a diagonal of 6.7 inches, with a refresh rate of 90 Hz. Other features and functions that are worth mentioning: four main cameras, a capacious 5000 mAh battery and wireless charging. The device turned out to be not cheap, but now, alas, it is becoming the standard for flagship phones.

Poco F2 Pro

Poco F2 Pro is also known as Redmi K30 Pro. This is a high-end smartphone, although it lacks some of the premium features that you can get in other flagships-this applies to wireless charging and IP rating. At the same time, a slightly lower price will be a plus.

This phone is based on the Snapdragon 865 and features a 6.67-inch Full HD + display, up to 8 GB of RAM and a 4700mAh battery with 30W charging. The developers claim that you can charge the battery from zero to 100 percent in just 63 minutes.The F2 Pro also features a retractable selfie camera, four main cameras, and a headphone jack. All this together makes it one of the best phones with Snapdragon 865 on board.

< /p>Realme X50 Pro

< / p>The Realme X50 Pro can be called a true "flagship killer" because it offers excellent value for money. With it, you get the latest, most powerful Snapdragon chipset, up to 12 GB of RAM, and a large Super AMOLED display with a 90 Hz refresh rate.Its 4,200 mAh battery supports 65W fast charging, allowing it to charge from zero to 100 percent in about 45 minutes. The disadvantage of this phone can be considered not too successful set of cameras.

Red Magic 5G

In general, this is a great device, although it is not suitable for everyone. This is a gaming smartphone, which means that its design corresponds exactly to the tasks of gaming. But it also means that the performance is top-notch. In addition to the Snapdragon 865 chipset, you also get a 144Hz display, an active cooling system, and trigger buttons.

The phone also features stereo speakers, a headphone jack, and up to 16 GB of RAM. What's more, it's relatively affordable, at least compared to similar devices.

However, Red Magic has a few downsides. The software is far from perfect, and the launcher can not be replaced with another one. The phone does not support memory expansion and offers a not particularly successful set of cameras.
