In this guide, we check out the top 5 contenders for performance smartphone of 2024. We’ll delve into features, and raw processing power to help you decide which beast deserves a place in your pocket.

OnePlus 12R

Building on the success of the OnePlus 11R, the OnePlus 12R explodes onto the global stage as the ultimate performance flagship for 2024. It inherits the best aspects of the OnePlus 12, combining top-tier specs with the R series’ focus on raw power.

This phone is designed for a demanding user. Powered by the flagship Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 SoC with a large 9140mm² Dual Cryo-velocity VC Cooling System, Gamers will experience seamless, high-frame rate gameplay.

Multitaskers will have a powerful machine that effortlessly juggles demanding applications. Anyone seeking the absolute best performance won’t be disappointed. Unlike some competitors who skimp on RAM, the OnePlus 12R packs a hefty 16GB of LPDDR5X RAM. This ensures that apps remain in memory for faster switching and less reloading, keeping your workflow seamless.

The OnePlus 12R pushes the boundaries of what a smartphone can do. This starts with the revolutionary Trinity Engine, a software platform developed in-house by OnePlus. The Trinity Engine optimizes performance across the CPU, RAM, and storage, making the 12R a multitasking marvel. Forget about sluggishness – the Trinity Engine ensures everything runs smoothly and efficiently.

iQOO Neo 9 Pro

The iQOO Neo9 Pro is the close competitor in the price range with the same Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset, ensuring smooth performance for demanding tasks. The phone has up to 12GB of LPDDR5X RAM, ensuring smooth multitasking.

The phone also has 6K Canopy VC liquid cooling, with an area of ​​6043mm², accounting for 48.82% of the entire projection area. The heat dissipation system has also achieved upgrades in material and structural design: the entire body is made of 3D stainless steel stamped VC, says the company.

The iQOO Neo9 Pro is a good option for everyday tasks, demanding applications and gaming.

Samsung Galaxy S23 FE

The Samsung Galaxy S23FE in the price range offers Exynos 2200 chipset in India, and Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 in several other markets. The Exynos 2200 in the S23 FE performs better than 2100 in the S21 FE, thanks to the new redesign in process for improve yield.

It comes only in 8GB RAM model, which is less than other competitors. If you’re a casual user or don’t push your phone to its limits, the Exynos 2200 in the S23 FE should provide a smooth and responsive experience, but there might be throttling during extended gaming sessions, so might not be the best choice out there for hardcore gamers.

vivo V30 Pro

The vivo V30 Pro in the range comes with MediaTek Dimensity 8200 chip. The phone has a 35,141 mm² total heat dissipation area, 3002mm² VC vapor chamber, 27,939 mm² graphite, and superconducting copper foil of 4200 mm².

The chipset prioritizes a balance between performance and price for everyday tasks, targeting a more general audience rather than gamers who need sustained raw performance.

Samsung Galaxy A55

The Galaxy A55, which is the latest phone from Samsung in the A series, utilizes Samsung’s own Exynos 1480 mid-range chipset that is efficient, prioritizing a balance between performance and efficiency instead of raw power.

It has up to 12GB of RAM, which is less than other competitors. There might be throttling during extended gaming sessions, so might not be the best choice out there for hardcore gamers.

If you prioritize raw performance, multitasking, and future proofing, the OnePlus 12R stands out. The Trinity Engine software is a potential game-changer for sustained performance.

Ultimately, the best phone depends on your specific needs and budget. But for pure, unadulterated performance in 2024, the OnePlus 12R is a force to be reckoned with.

The OnePlus 12R 5G starts at Rs. 39,999 and is available from Amazon.in, OnePlus online store and offline stores.
