Here is Naijaknowhow‘s list of the cheapest and best Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 Plus Phones.

After the Snapdragon 855 launched in 2018, Qualcomm released an update from the Snapdragon 855 flagship processor called “Snapdragon 855 Plus”. This chipset is somewhat similar to the previous version but with a few differences.

The difference is the eight existing Kryo cores are boosted with higher clock speeds, up to 2.96 GHz. But the more noticeable updates are in the GPU sector, where according to the Adreno 640 performance that is used increases by 15%. There is also an increase in the side of AI and VR because this chip is equipped with the 4th generation AI Engine which is capable of running more than 7 trillion operations every second.
