Anonymous, 05 Jul 2015Can't trust Qualcomm snapdragon anymore. Agreed, had the note 4 with the snapdragon 805, what a piece of shit, the second month of having ito, it started overheating immensity and started becoming slow. Now I have the note 5 with the exynos and it's great.
Exynos 7422 SoC Be Present Inside Galaxy Note 5
Is once connected to Internet, overheating is problem, so battery runs in minutes
Samsung not working on this problem
People really need to keep one huge thing in mind when it comes to mobile device benchmarks; these things are PASSIVELY cooled. The fact that the SD820 is not actually available to consumers yet means that you have NO IDEA what kind of thermal mitigation the device being benchmarked has. Most of the time, prototype test devices are open to air on a circuit board. Air is a very good insulator, which means that the chip will heat up fast and retain heat long. In a phone, it usually takes longer for the full device to get heat soaked on account of a lot more bulk to heat up.
Exynos7420 has two things going for its benchmarks;
1) it is in a real phone now, with thermal mass. That means that it can take a while before it heats up enough to throttle significantly.
2) samsung is a well known benchmark cheater. Even with qualcomm SoC's. With their own, you can be sure that the chip was engineered to beat the benchmarks.
When it comes down to it, the exynos 7420 is a reference design quad a57 + quad a53. Another new qualcomm chip that is coming up along side the sd820 will really be an interesting one to compare with, since it is the sd620, branded as a MID-TIER CPU. This MID tier CPU compares very interestingly to the exynos 7420, in that instead of quad a57 + quad a53, it is quad a72 + quad a53, and will be on the same or similar fab, possibly even *by* samsung. According to ARM, the a72 will basically obliterate the a57, which translates to sd620 obliterating the exynos 7420. It would be kind of funny if qualcomm's "high end" chip can't keep up with their own middle-of-the-road, wouldn't it?
So while this benchmark with the sd820 showing fairly evenly with the exynos 7420 is... at least showing that it isn't dramatically outclassed, expect something MUCH more interesting once devices are in people's hands.

chester, 30 Jun 2015Guess you bought a phone with S810 chip now you regret and hoping it can be changed... No, I haven't. I am simply curious and was hoping for an answer not an insult.
This is funny, somebody is still getting that iOS is smooth as butter, Android lags as hell. Come on, it's getting old.
Nathan Carter, 30 Jun 2015All phones lag. Stop with the lag nonsense. Show me a phone that doesn't lag and ill prove you... moreRight. Especially when ios users and even wp used claim Android lags all the time and that ios and wp never do. Meanwhile I've used them all and they all do.
All phones lag. Stop with the lag nonsense. Show me a phone that doesn't lag and ill prove you wrong. All Phones lag with use and if you're an average user your phone will always seem like crap. If you don't clear out the phone memory every once in a while you will experience (Lag).

swirly, 30 Jun 2015The S5 of the previous year also was rated high despite its laggyness. Maybe that's because it's not laggy and because only jealous online haters claim it so
Go for nvidia x1,A9,and exynos 7420 they all chip are far better than Qualcomm any chip...my experience
I have what may be a dumb question, actually two:
1. Would cell phone manufacturers who currently have the Snapdragon 810 in it be able to easily swap out the 810 for the 820 without making significant changes to the phone?
2. Would anyone who has a phone with an 810 ever be able to swap out an 810 for an 820 and still have the phone work?
