The introduction of the Apple iPhone 15 has led to numerous discussions and comparisons with Android devices, particularly in terms of the chipset. The new A17 Pro processor, which no longer bears the Bionic name, is expected to set a new standard for performance. We are curious to see how it stacks up against the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset that currently powers the top Android phones on the market.
Prior to discussing the specifications, it is important to mention that Apple has changed its approach and no longer includes its most advanced chipset in all new iPhone models.

Although the A16 chip is still very capable, it is not the latest technology. Now, let’s compare the Apple A17 Pro to the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2.
