Hi everyone, I hope you are always in good condition and stay healthy… and this is not just a question about ‘what a good device for IF’, however, as per the title, im about to get new devices next year and its time to get the kinda mid-range / malignant or maybe fierce ones.
So, my question is:
Does Infinite Flight already compatible / ‘Be acquainted’ with Snapdragon 720G ? Im Planned to buy Realme 6 pro that have the Snapdragon 720G as the processor Link to the specified devices specification
after I watch review after review on YouTube, if there is a problem why especially in high graphics settings the device with this processor is still like or some kind of lag (maybe) with this good processor there are still problems like that. Especially for Infinite Flight, are you acquainted, unlocked, compatible & optimized if run on this processor?
As I have never used or owned a device with this particular SOC, it’s impossible for me to give a 100% accurate answer.
However, what I can say, based on the raw spec sheet, the device should have no issues running Infinite Flight with a balance of Medium/ High settings. The 6-8GB ram and lower screen resolution will also work in favour of the device. I can’t say how well it would perform on long hauls, nor could I say how it would perform at a busy airport. Nobody on the Device Compatibility Thread has reviewed the device yet.
The rest would be down to the device software and how well optimised it is.
A combination of Infinite Flight optimisation and also Android optimisation. A device vendor can do it’s own work behind the scenes on android to allow it to perform better on its hardware, like Google does with its Pixel devices.
The Snapdragon 820 is built on the older 14nm process and was plagued by overheating and throttling issues. My Xperia Z5 uses the SD821 and that gets brutally hot to the point where I won’t run IF on the device.
Whilst the 820 might beat the 720G just out of pure raw performance, overall the 720G is much more power efficient and has a newer, more powerful graphics processor which is going to boost its longevity. The S7 Edge is over 4 years old, it’s not surprising it will pay a bit.
However the Note 9S you mentioned does use almost identical hardware to the aforementioned Realme 6Pro so that would do well for comparisons sake
Compatibility issues are actually pretty unlikely with IF, because IF uses the older openGL library. Performance-wise you can’t really know without the actual phone.
Honestly I think the bigger risk is buying a cell phone from a Chinese manufacturer given what happened to Huawei.
