In terms of specs, Snapdragon 835 processor uses 10nm process, compared with Kirin 960 with 16nm process, 10nm is more advanced. Its advanced craftsmanship will bring lower power consumption and smaller heat issue. Therefore, in theory about power consumption, Kirin 960 may fall behind a little.
As for CPU and GPU, let’s see Oneplus 5 and Huawei P10 Antutu test.
In terms of Antutu test scores, Oneplus 5 has got over 180,000 points, but Huawei P10 only has got over 140,000 points, the higher performance means higher antutu score in theory.
In addition, Oneplus 5 has RAM 6GB/8GB, UFS 2.1 flash storage, but Huawei P10 only has RAM 4GB, using EMMC5.1 and USF2.1, therefore, Oneplus 5 has higher specs and faster speed.
In general, Huawei P10 has no big gap away from Oneplus 5, when we play popular games, we can not feel much gap, only different in large games. For example, Oneplus 5 has higher frame rate than Huawei P10.
