How about the overclockable snapdragon 888 on the rog phone 5 and its vapor chamber cooling?
ROG phone isn't that practical for general users IMO because of size & weight. Its thermals are better for sure though, just check GSMArena review. It sustains 90% of performance after 30mins even without fan.

Just a comparison of S865 & Exynos 2100, not sure how reliable those perf numbers (GIPS) are from that CPU throttling app.

This video sums up why S865/870 were the last good flagship SoC:

Yes, A52s 5G gets 1 extra OS update, but else, S20 FE 5G is just better. I'll recommend it over S21 FE 5G as well unless the latter is like 5k extra. S888 being a hot CPU is kind of a con for gamers, in long-duration gaming performance of many phones fall to S865 level.
iirc, as stated earlier, different people have different usage / priorities and it appears you are only looking at speed of the mobile / processor power which is required for gaming. since i don't play any game, i don't look at anything superfast. i found fold 3 more useful as per my usage but as i am busy with some other work so will not be able to use it properly, therefore i decided against it although i was getting it at almost 10k discount. also A52S gets not just 1 extra OS update but 1 more year of security updates so anyone who wants to use it as a regular one is better off imho. thanks.

Actually, my preference was more towards camera than performance. S778 & S780 are great midrange chips. Software & UI looks more of the same to me. I jumped from S8 (android 9) to S20 FE 5G (android 11), there's a good improvement in software, but nothing extraordinary, which used to be the case 5 years or so back with each OS.

I'm someone who considers stock android inferior to custom UIs, so there's that as well.

and i am the opposite - i prefer stock over any ui

I think we can create new threads for 15k-25K phones, 26K-35K and 35K+ and sticky it? Or this will make users to use single thread for all the similar advices instead of creating their own threads?

Leaker ice universe recently claimed that exynos 2200 is the worst flagship processor. It lags behind dimensity 9000 which uses mali gpu. Sd 8 gen 1 which uses adreno and apple a15 are the flag bearers.

S865/870 is the last good android flagship SoC. SD gen 1 & exynos were always expected to be hot, SD already has reviews out. Dimensity 9000 might turn out to be good but time will tell.

Sorry bro not into Smartphones these days. I am not up to date with latest models and mobile cpu(s) coming into market :(
 
Redmi 10 seems oik for the price. Redmi 10's biggest con for me is the lack of a 1080p panel, performance is alright though.

There are offers in FK though with ICICI CC. In cart, I can see Redmi Note 10T 5G for 10.8k after instant discount, get that. Dimensity 700 performs better than SD 680.
REDMI Note 10T 5G ( 64 GB Storage, 4 GB RAM ) Online at Best Price On Flipkart.com
Realme 8 5G review (Perf numbers, for rest check Poco M3 Pro 5G review)

Another option is Moto G31, will come under 11k with Axis FK CC, instant discount + cashback. This has stock android but SoC is weaker than Dimensity 700. But has an AMOLED panel.

i asked because in the past xiaomi had its own recording option built in their own dialer.
this is a silly move considering call recording usage and its legal position in many countries including ours.

Redmi note 10t 5g (2nd suggestion).
Good device with deals.
But person is a farmer. Person most likely buying from local market or will ask someone to order. But don't know when he will order. Still suggesting these phones.
Main feature required is big battery.
Realme 8 5g over budget...
Poco M3 pro 5g good device but 5000 mAh battery. (3rd suggestion)

Moto g31 have mediatek SoC, suggest mediatek dimensity SoC devices.
AMOLED is bright in sunlight right?
But study says LCD generally have better visibility under the sun.
