Stoon, 03 Jul 2023isn’t SD 888 suffering from battery drain in deepsleep and overheating issue ??? (accordi… moreSnapdragon inside s23 series is worse than the one in S22 series – much worse actually ( I own an s22 and an s23 – the smallest the s lineup dimensionally wise just to remind you. So, both of the 6.1 display models I have should be best in battery life because they have less space to power) in terms of battery longevity, regardless of whether in standby on a desk, via heavy gaming, web surfing or any type of mixture their of. So, if what you say is true, than I hope that Qualcomm starts making their 7 series their true best jack of all trades SoC lineup. 8 series isn’t really known for good battery life, except those using 10 nm node fin fit process. Silly to make the sammy one overclocked, let alone hype / promote this power hungry, extra depleting battery life as a wanna be bragging rights better than other snap 8 gen 2 chipsets.
Someone copy the Google pixel 1 snapdragon 820 exclusive with its downclocked exclusive version, and immediately.
SD 888 isn’t particularly efficient and has a tendency to heat up (not as much as Exynos). Would have preferred a Dimensity 8200 or at least a Dimensity 8100 instead!
I had to choose between S20 FE 5G (SD865) and S21 FE (SD888) or S22 (Exynos 2200) after my phone’s display broke. I bought the S20 FE 5G 256GB/8GB RAM + 1TB SanDisk Extreme Pro SD card. No overheating, great battery life, plenty of space.
I really miss the 3.5mm jack and WQHD display.

In some countries still available for that kind of price.
SD888 won’t suffer that faith if it wasn’t from Samsung foundries. They’re so bad they even effed up their own
Anonymous, 03 Jul 2023No, it wouldn’t be a better choice over S22 Plus. Software support is not everything.Their cameras are the same.
Their display types are the same.
And S21 FE has longer support, for a plastic back and no adaptive refresh rate with VERY SLIGHTLY worse battery life.
Isn’t it a fair trade?
I’ll tell everyone exactly what has happened.
Samsung was awarded SD888 and SD 8 Gen 1 production, both are made in Samsung Foundry. Problem is that both these chips have overheating and consequently performance throttling issues. Now that 888 is an older chip with no buyers, samsung has to somehow sell a big 888 inventory. Note that 888+ prod was awarded to TSMC because of sammy foundry issues. Some manager genius came up with the idea that “let’s package this in the FE tag” but S23FE already is in production while S22 FE doesn’t exist. So they defaulted to “S21 FE 5G 2023”.
Hope they have resolved the issues with proper thermal cooling solution and software, most likely not but let’s give them a chance.
who’s fan of snapdragon 888??????
Anonymous, 23 hours agowhy samsung why??? why such a bad thermal chipset in 2023?best chipet better rhsn exynos
Heating issue was serious in sd888, they could use better chipset from mediatek like d8200 or d9000.
I’ve tested 11t pro and s21 fe and 11 ultra.
Most of the people that bought devices with sd888 in my shop they switched to newer devices with better thermal.

Why would anyone buyS21 FE with SD 888. This processor had a very bad reputation regarding heating issues and battery drain. You can buy any other phone with higher battery capacity, better cameras and better processor at 40k INR. Samsung is pushing the SD 888 in S21FE because they have so many unsold phones with same processor. That’s why they are relaunching the phone with a very bad processor. I would rather wait for Nothing Phone 2 which will cost around same with SD 8+Gen1 processor and better camera and battery. Samsung is making and very wrong move here.
why samsung why??? why such a bad thermal chipset in 2023?
It’s because of Google a series
