  • Cat. 7 or X8 LTE is similar to the SD650

Which is better?

Both chipsets are graphically capable of dishing out the best experience in gaming and multimedia. Though, the SD652 can be easily seen as a more powerful chip, thanks to its extra two cores of ARM Cortex A72 on top of the other 2x A72 and 4x ARM Cortex A53.

  1. Mi Max launched yesterday in India with two versions.
    One is 3Gb/32Gb Snap 650 version priced at 225$
    Another is 4Gb/128Gb Snap 652 version priced at 300$

    My requirement is to squeeze out maximum battery life. Which one should i buy? Does those 2 extra A72 cores reduce battery life?
    Thank you!

    • Go for the 652 version, I think the speed and power is worth it. No, the extra A72 cores wont reduce battery life in light use/apps. Yes, the extra A72 cores will help you get more efficient battery life in heavy usage (will not require faster clock speed). It really depends on your usage.

      • Im happy with my rn3 pro and the 650 it gives me 75000 in antutu and runs everything perfecto like an s6

  2. I mostly play games, looking at this phone (handing in note 7) – Is the 650 better at gaming than the 652 like the article says?

    Aussie prices are slightly higher –
    One is 3Gb/32Gb Snap 650 version priced at au$240
    Another is 4Gb/128Gb Snap 652 version priced at au$420
