So, when you buy a Qualcomm based device, expect to pay a little more.
What we have noticed is that very few phones use what we call the ‘Qualcomm reference design’.
So, it is no guarantee that it has all the Qualcomm features enabled. Typically lower cost phone makers will use lower-cost wrap-around components like inferior RF antenna, older BT chips and different sound amplifiers etc. We try to identify that in our reviews.
