Nah, you still don't get my point. The Webster screenshot I sent earlier you didn't get past the first part of the definition.

Seems things get lost in translation with all the back and forth debate. Take a look at your Paddy's screenshot and what I stated earlier?

These are all marketing terms to justify the various segments of customer needs. It's not cast on stone that a flagship must be a single device.

Stay safe man, over and out.

This argument is mad sha lol

Personally, from what I've read. There's a Flagship range or grade of the best phones that an OEM produces, but there can only be one Flagship at a time or one flagship for a product range or line depending on the OEM

Several phones may belong to this grade but not all of them are flagships even if they carry a flagship grade processor.

It depends on how badly you need the item and how much time you're willing to wait. I wouldn't say you shouldn't order but you should know there is a chance that the item wouldn't arrive cos of the lockdown everywhere.

Although I ordered items before the lockdown tho and all of don land for Nigeria but since Post Office no dey work, the items never reach my local post.

In summary, it all depends on you if you wanna risk it.


Thanks a lot. I'll wait.

That u use a Xiaomi or not is not the issue here...stop bringing irrelevant stuffs to an argument...I for one don't really believe in benchmarks since the days of Samsung being caught cheating on S4... Bring both phones and lets watch their live performance.... Snapdragon 865 beat the a13 bionic is some benchmarks ,,I have watched speed test videos of the iPhone 11 pro max vs the mi 10 pro and that was not the same story... iPhone 11 pro max beat d mi 10 on c4E tech's video....[b]If Samsung Exynos's chipsets were so good like u claim ,,why do they have to keep making Snapdragon variants for their devices??[/b]their devices record more sales on the Snapdragon variants even in regions where there are not supplied to,,there are demands for it...Huawei 's Kirin 810 didn't lead mid-range benchmarks to be disrespected like this....

when you say flagship processor, what do you have in mind?

'Processor in a flagship phone'?

Just like phone OEMs, makers of SoCs also have their 'best'. The SD 865 is currently the Snapdragon flagship processor. Its presence in a phone isn't what makes the phone flagship. It's more of that device's rank amongst other devices by the same OEM.

Yes, Mi 10 pro is currently Xiaomi's flagship. It has the highest overall quality/value in any Xiaomi phone.
That's what I am driving at, if we are to say that all the S20s are flagships, we may have a problem. The reason is that, though all the phones have the same sd865 processor similarities start coming in, camera, display resolution, and such variations. I think the problem isn't with how we use English but the manufacturers of phones, and their attempts to make as much sales as possible from as many offerings as possible

Great way to put it bro. This was a discussion I had with several of my friends when the Pocophone F1 launched. After MKBHD's review, he said that it has a flagship processor, but it was a midrange device. Device with such designation were first made by OnePlus and they called them "Flagship Killers".

These days however, OEMs make slight variations to justify a $200 price hike from the vanilla models. Usually, a better camera system, a beefier battery, slightly larger and higher screen resolution, and maybe a few lifestyle features like a wood frame or ceramic.

Despite these changes been subtle sometimes, it doesn't make the vanilla device a better or "on par" with the flagship.

With the recent smartphone classes, GSMA...made the new categories below
Thank you, you understand what I am saying. And I agree with you, the problem emanates from OEMs, now in Xiaomi for instance we have flagship, MI 10 pro then we have gaming phone Black Shark 3 or so... In gaming tests due to some technical improvements, the black shark will definitely triumph over the Mi 10pro but these black sharks have notorious poor cameras compared to the Mi 10 pro, also the Mi 10pro will have better design and form factor than the black shark though they may have flagship processor or flagship refresh rate and such. So for me, for a phone to be flagship using that work stricto sensu, the phone has to be the best for that period of time. And from what OEMs are showing they only make on "best phone" per time. If Mi Mix 4 is launched it becomes the new flagship for Xiaomi and when Note 10 is launched, the note 10 with the best features becomes the new flagship.

Profit maximisation bro. They usually offer different chipset based flagships of same model to different markets.

SD versions usually go to America and EU markets while Exynos mostly gets released in... You guessed it right Asia, MEA markets i.e. Middle East and Africa

SD is for US and China, Exynos are for the rest of the world

Who said exonos is nothing to write home about cheesy
Nawah for Una oh.

In d chipset world.
A bionic.
Snapdragon.
Exonos.
Kyrin
Mtk.

D fact that Samsung reduces system performance when the phone heats up no mean say small note 8 pro will beat it.

Can note 8 pro support 4k recording. Chipset go just burn.
S20 supports 4k. Nd 8k. All s20's.
Benchmark it's still in top 10.
So what's d case.
Bros u getting it wrong, in games, note 8pro did better than the Exynos S20, they didn't say overall
