Snapdragon 855 should beat an 8-core Jaguar by a sizable margin.

Bandwidth is where things fall short though... The 855 will only offer about 34.13GB/s of bandwidth, which is going to limit it's gaming capabilities, especially at higher resolutions that the Playstation 4 will target.

GPU wise the Adreno is surprisingly capable and extremely efficient, more so than AMD's ageing Graphics Core Next architecture... But at the end of the day, the Playstation 4 has a sheer larger number of functional units which means it should win in every scenario.

Now when comparing Snapdragon against the Xbox One, things start to lean towards the Snapdragon a little more, but the Xbox One should still hold a slight edge in the GPU/Bandwidth department.

Nope snapdragon 855 is still far behind Xbox one.

Snapdragon 855 scores 11fps sustained performance, xbox one (Radeon 7770) does 30fps and according to anandtech this benchmark is very likely based on half-precision compute shaders which favor mobile phones heavily. The benchmark tests gpu only, a game will push the cpu and the gpu to the max which will further decrease performance.

Snapdragon 855 is not limited by memory bandwidth but by heat and is not close to xbox one.

CPU. Not GPU. ARM has long left Jaguar behind.

GPU is a different matter... Because whilst Adreno is more efficient and newer, it has less functional units.

An ARM SoC will always show it's limitations when it comes to graphics due to a myriad of reasons, you need to test each aspect individually, already recognized that the Xbox One will beat the Snapdragon 855 in GPU tasks.

The Snapdragon 855 Adreno GPU is certainly limited in-part by memory bandwidth which hampers texture and pixel fillrate which gets compounded at higher resolutions.

Keep in mind that the Xbox One has double the bandwidth of the Snapdragon 855... And it still struggles to hit and maintain 1080P... And that is before we take into account the ESRAM that gives it a boost as well.
