Makimaki11, 04 Jan 2017When Kirin comes to 10nm it will be better than all others. A73 cores are beastly.The Kirin 965 and/or Kirin 970 will probably be one of the best of 2017, and eat the SD835 without salt.
So does this mean that the 835 will support wider colour gamut and real HDR?
Still disappointed by the little love to the sound DAC though...

So I doubt 8895 could even compete with 8890, certainly not with SD835.
It won't be the worst Exynos release since forever...

Qualcomm is a semi monopoly and like many monopolies abuses its position to release similar SoCs year after year. If her monopoly is not checked she will turn into the Intel of the mobile world. I.E. few gains for a bumped number, forcing people to buy their bad chips.
Seriously I hope Mediatek won't become like AMD , merely accepting her fate as the 2nd fiddle. Now that Qualcomm is slowing down, it is the time to overtake it, make them pay for bad engineering.
IT only succeeds in a competitive environment. Everyone and his dog selecting Qualcomm hurts consumers. We already see how bad it get with the lazy SD 820 release (it solved overheating but was not that much more powerful in raw performance) and now SD835
All the hates given to this new SD835??? What do you expect?

Anonymous, 04 Jan 2017How does it top Mongoose? We havent seen the direct competing mongoose cores yet.
Exynos 8890 has mongoose 2,4ghz + 1,6ghz a53.
Kryo 280,will have 1,9ghz A530probably which means that sn835 already tops Exynos 8890 in multi core. It is made on 10nm which means it is even better than 14nm or 16nm. Main cores will be similiar in power. Sn835 should have 2000 geekbench easily, in mc more than 7000. Antutu should be around 170k if there will be right optimizations on Nougat. My xperia xz hits 144k on antutu with sn820 and nougat android.
I'm starting to like the processor, but to be honest, I still prefer the Kirin 960. Can't wait for the Kirin 965 or Kirin 970.

If you want a high quality DAC the LG V series has been calling on ESS to build high quality Hi-Fi DACs for those phones, and in the case of the V20, also called B&O to tune.

It was shown that single handedly, the single performance integer of all the other processors (power cores) beat the M1 or matched them one way or the other. Its totally logical to believe the 835 Kryo 280 high performance cores will beat or at worst slightly above the previous generation of Mongoose cores.
DealBreaker, 04 Jan 2017IP rating wrecks the sound quality...Note2 was not water water resistant!IP rating covering the speaker has nothing to do with audio DAC driving headphone output.
Even the water proof S7 and S7 Exynos models have far superior sound. Cause Qualcomm has a built in audio DAC to the Snapdragon SoC. So models with it use their integrated one. Some phones have slightly better amps connected to it but that can only help so much.
In the models with Exynos SoC Samsung has to come up with one. So they turn to Wolfson which makes premium audio.
I understand Qualcomm is not a premium audio company and Samsung could use a slightly better amp..... But Qualcomm could really really step up their game in this department quite a lot. It's one of the areas they have really really really lagged behind.
Well now i am relieved that i have an OP3T since this year, its only a small step forward instead of a major leap like last year.
Drinkableach, 04 Jan 2017It tops the current Mongoose, so does the A10 and generally speaking the Kirin 960...You don't even know that actually. And even if it did....How is that relevant?
This SoC was literally just announced. Those mongooses are compared to the S820 from a year ago and will have their own relevant cores to compare to the S835 here soon.
Saying that these new ones top the mongoose referring to last years makes no sense.
if a BlackBerry 10 OS phone runs this SoC, should be awasome. but....:exhale:
