Review by Tenzys Tech
CPU of Dimensity 1100 is clocked up to 2.6 GHz while Snapdragon 845 is clocked up to 2.8 GHz but still, Dimensity 1100 has better performance just because of latest Cortex A-78 Cores.
GPU of chipset Dimensity 1100 is equipped with Mali-G77 MC9 while the snapdragon 845 is equipped with Adreno 630. Frankly, Mali-G77 MC9 is much better than Adreno 630. Also, the frequency of GPU of Dimensity 1100 is higher than the GPU of Snapdragon 845.
The maximum memory (RAM) supported by Dimensity 1100 is 16 GB while on another hand Snapdragon 845 supports only 8 GB of RAM. In fact, the memory frequency of Dimensity 1100 is 4266 MHz while in SD 845 it is 1866 MHz. So in this section Dimensity 1100 would be a good option.
Display and Camera
In-display section, Dimensity 1100 supports display up to 144Hz refresh rate while display resolution in Snapdragon 845 supports only up to 60 Hz.
Energy efficiency and battery life
As the facts are seen by the specifications in which Dimensity 1100 built on 6nm process technology while on another hand SD 845 built on 10nm technology. This concludes that Dimensity 1100 is better than SD 845 as the small size semiconductor indicates the more no. of transistors embedded in SOC (System On Chip) which is not only energy efficient but also significantly enhances the performance of the chipset.
MediaTek Dimensity 1100
Decent Chipset but not recommended for overclock processing.
Qualcomm Snapdragon 845
Best performer in Flagship Series of 2018 or better performer in 2019.
Q n A
Q1. Which is better Dimensity 1100 or Snapdragon 845?
Ans. Dimensity 1100 is better than Snapdragon 845 as Dimensity 1100 is 5G compatible while Snapdragon 845 is non-5G SOC. In several segments like connectivity, memory, GPU Dimensity 1100 performs better as compared to Snapdragon 845.
Q2. Which is the best Snapdragon processor in 2021?

Q3. Which is the fastest phone in the world?
Ans. Apple iPhone 12 Pro is the Fastest phone in the world as it is equipped with an Apple A14 Bionic chip which is not only faster than flagship android phones but also faster than some of the low-end laptops.
Q4. Does SD 845 support 5G?
Ans. Well said No, as Snapdragon 845 consists of X20 LTE modem which supports LTE (4G) Band but its successor X55 modem is compatible with 5G which are available in the successors of SD 865+ SOCs.
Q5. What is the most powerful phone 2021?
Ans. Asus ROG Phone 5 is the most powerful phone in 2021 as it consists of a flagship Snapdragon 888 processor as it is released on 10th March 2021. Even it is faster than ROG Phone 3, the predecessor of ROG Phone 5 which is known to be the most powerful phone of 2020.
Q6. Is SD 845 still good?
Ans. Yes, Sd 845 is still an advanced processor as compared to many processors that exist in the market. It is clocked over 2.8 GHz with an octa-core CPU. It can be considered for value for money as well. Although it can outperform in connectivity and other specs other than the processor as compared to the recently launched SOCs but its processor is still the best competitor for most of the SOCs recently available in the market.
