Top High End Phones Running Snapdragon 800 SoC in India

    After having pushed its Snapdragon S4 into a plethora of devices in 2012, Qualcomm launched the Snapdragon 600 and 800 SoCs at CES this year. While the Snapdragon 600 found a place in several mid-range devices, the 800 has been reserved for the cream of the crop.

    How good is the 800? Well, compare it to the last year's Snapdragon S4, the Snapdragon 800 offers a 75 percent performance lift, thereby making it extremely powerful. So if you're looking for the most powerful mobile experience on an Android phone, you're going to need a hand set that uses this wonderful little processor. For this reason, we've rounded up all the best phones running Quallcom's Snapdragon 800 and compared them to give you an idea of what's the best option out there.


    First up on our list comes the Xperia Z Ultra phablet. Sporting a 6.44-inch display, the device is more than a handful. It packs a beautiful screen with a 16 : 9 aspect ratio and has 2GB of RAM for some powerful multi tasking. One of the best performers this year, the Xperia Z Ultra is a good example of a Snapdragon 800 SoC handset done well. However, its massive screen size isn't for everyone.

    And then comes the Samsung's Galaxy Note 3. It has a good screen (5.7-inch Full HD Super AMOLED ppi), but not the best, since the Xperia Z1 and Z Ultra uses better displays. But what the Note 3 does have is the promise of sheer power when it comes to performance. Along with the Snapdragon 800 SoC, the handset packs a generous 3GB of RAM. There's also an abundant 3,200mAH battery that ensure more than day of juice on a single charge. So if productivity is your thing and you don't mind paying Rs 50,000 for a plasti bodyc, then this device is a good choice.

    Up next, we've got the Xperia Z1, Sony's latest and greatest flagship, a device that will be the Japanese company's contender against the iPhone 5S. It has a wonderful 20.7 MP Primary Camera, a gorgeous 5-inch Full HD screen that delivers 441 pixels per inch, easily one of the best screens we've seen till date. Combined with the phone's waterproof body, high quality build and solid performance, the handset is one of our favorite phones of 2013. Plus, since it retails at just Rs.42, 500, it's cheaper than the Note 3 (Rs. 50,000) and the upcoming iPhone 5C and 5S, which are expected to be much more expensive.

    Another South Korean phone maker, LG, gave us the G2 sometime back. The phone is one of the fastest Android phones out there and uses a great screen. It offers powerful performance but has terrible software. We even found its buttons rather annoying, making it hard to operate. It even uses en excelent camera, but the phone's brilliance is lost amidst its many shortcomings.

    Apart from this, we've got three more wonderful phones coming soon with a Snapdragon 800 SoC packed inside. Run through the slider below to check them out along with the complete specifications of the aforementioned phones.
