Most high-end smartphones are fast enough for the majority of users; But in terms of performance statistics, Apple’s A series chips that are used in this company’s iPhones; Compared to flagship Android chips, they have higher processing capabilities. iPhone phones traditionally have better processing and graphics performance than Android handsets; But the Qualcomm company will probably change the equations of the game soon with its chips.
Xiaomi 12S Ultra surpassed all other smartphones in the gaming test
Golden Reviewer Institute, which conducts detailed reviews and tests on smartphones; Recently, it has been noticed that the latest flagship of Xiaomi company called Xiaomi 12S Ultra has better graphics in the field of gaming compared to other smartphones in the market, including Apple iPhones.

Thanks to TSMC’s 4nm manufacturing process, this chip has significant improvements over the Snapdragon 8 generation 1 chip. According to Qualcomm, the performance of CPU and GPU in the new chip has been improved by 10% compared to the previous generation model and the energy efficiency has been improved by 30%.
When running a heavy game titled Genshin Impact, Xiaomi 12S Ultra managed to offer the highest frame rate among smartphones released during 2022. To be more precise, the average frame rate processed by this handset was equal to 57.7 frames per second. The more interesting issue is that such an achievement was realized without a significant increase in the temperature of the device; A problem that was quite evident in the Snapdragon 8 generation 1 chip.
Actually The Xiaomi 12S Ultra ran at lower temperatures compared to other smartphones on the list, including the iPhone SE 2022. As a reminder, it should be noted that the iPhone SE 2022, like the iPhone 13 family, uses the A15 Bionic chip. iPhone 13 Pro Max and Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra (Snapdragon 8th Generation 1) are the other handsets on this list.

Therefore, although Apple is still leading in the benchmark test; But Qualcomm is closing its gap with the Cupertino giant. According to rumors, the 2nd generation Snapdragon 8 chip will have even better performance and better energy efficiency.
The Xiaomi 12S Ultra is equipped with a 1-inch camera sensor that allows it to capture more details than smartphones with smaller sensors.
