Ted’s Take:

Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 may have the power to make your Android phone smoke its competition, but it seems like it’s also burning a hole in your battery. I mean, come on Qualcomm, can’t you give us the best of both worlds? We want our phones to perform like superheroes, not like them eating too many donuts! Efficiency is like the sidekick to performance—always working in the shadows but still vital. Looks like Qualcomm needs to send its efficiency department a strong email. But hey, don’t worry, folks! There’s hope on the horizon! Qualcomm is already cooking something up for Snapdragon 8 Gen 4, and it promises laptop-class chips with great performance and efficiency. So, while we wait for Qualcomm to get its act together, let’s keep our superhero fantasies alive and hope for a better, more balanced chipset next time around.
