I'm hoping they can resolve the microSD card support as that is the main reason not upgrading my Note4 to the S6 or Note5.
unic, 11 Sep 2015Samsung needs to stop producing flagships with 2 types of processors(exynos & snapdragon) ... moreSamsung can't supply all units with Exynos chipset. Snapdragon on the other hand is capbale to do so, but Samsung wants to save money and get more profit from putting their own chip.
Well whatever samsung does they won't be able to prevent lag and slowness on their devices. My s4 used to lag too much and now note 4 is not much better. I don't know what ails samsung. What mismatch or glitch is there among different softwares. So Sammy first improve performance before launching new devices
The cpu's are fast enough, no matter which chip you choose, it's the gpu that matters, and Qualcomm know there adreno 430 was capable of dealing with 4k displays and their adreno 530 in the s820 will be almost twice as powerful, that's all that matters.
Samsung needs to stop producing flagships with 2 types of processors(exynos & snapdragon) for different regions. They need to stick to either snapdragon or either for the whole world .
I can bet with the GSMArena that the S7 will not have 5.7 inch display. Is a 100$ enough?
Ansebovi03, 11 Sep 2015Do you know that sd820 is quad core which beat any other available cpu in market including s6 ... moreCPU Performance:
That's exactly my point in 2014. Qualcomm managed to be beat (quite handily) by a budget SoC. They must be ashamed, and people buying their chips are helping a bad company.
Ansebovi03, 11 Sep 2015Do you know that sd820 is quad core which beat any other available cpu in market including s6 ... moreOhhhh, artificial intelligeeeence ... haha, what does that even mean in the context of SoCs? By now I'm convinced that Qualcomm doesn't know what they are doing if they resort to wooey language...
As for single core use, yeah single core is baaarely faster than an early 2015 SoC, congrats, do you want a medal? Also Single core use matters a lot less in android (we're not iOS here), just run "PS" on terminal emulator and you'd see myriads of little processes running at the same time.
The time that "more than 4 cores are useless" has long passed. So its baarely faster Single Thread performance does not impress me, especially since it has half the cores...
Anonymous, 11 Sep 2015So S7 would be slower than S6? Stupid stupid Samsung if they are to use Qualcomm. I mean this... moreDo you know that sd820 is quad core which beat any other available cpu in market including s6 cpu in single core and came second in multi core with just 4 core while others are 8 cores?
Sd820 also have zeroth technology which is artificial intelligence.. Don't say whatever you think lol.. mtk never beats the SD lolz it is just a budget oriented cpu that's all..
So S7 would be slower than S6? Stupid stupid Samsung if they are to use Qualcomm. I mean this company have some of the worst engineers in existence. They are practically a monopoly for oh so many years and they lose to newcomers (like the new LG) or low budget alternatives (Mediatek MT6595 anyone?), despite their far greater budget.
Hope these rumours are untrue because apart from restrictive (knox) and non upgradable (no replaceables) the new Samsungs will also lack performance.,.
Glad to see that they ditched the shitty exynos and used a true dragon emperor..... Snapdragon rockz....
Anonymous, 11 Sep 2015"Not compatible with sd"? Well that's pure bullshit. Does anyone actually believe this?Believe or not you are not getting the microSD slot and nothing you can do about it anyway.
Be Cool, 11 Sep 2015Exactly. That's the point of the Apple's propaganda. To slow down the S6/Edge sales now. Of ... moreAgree with you.. Apple is spending billions in marketting and regularly hire to people to badmouth its competitors lile HTC
It looks a bit like samsung might be getting away from note series. This years note is pretty much galaxy s with slightly changed design and stylus. So next year we could get two sizes of s7 lets say 5.2" normal and 5.7" s7 with stylus. And of course edge variants of both sizes and thats flagship lineup sorted. I just hope to be wrong.
Anonymous, 10 Sep 2015Ufs with micro sd cards would require special sd cards that could actually provide those read/... more..or they can provide two microSD slots and raid-0 so that we can double the performance of the fastest microSD available to keep up with UFS 2.0
