But iphone 6s plus still beats everything with its FHD resolution and other smartphones with sd810 and the same screen resolution are just a lot poorer.PowerVr has always been better than adreno and a lot better than the crappy mali gpu which is used in low end chinese smartphones.
PS: look at the benchmarks of the ipad pro,with its almost 4K "low" resolution it has 100% higher scores and beats every thing which will be released in the next years even some laptops and not so old computers
Yeah right so this a power house. Samsung always wanted some crazy benchmark scores. this is what Exynos is all about. but i'm pretty sure that Snapdragon 820 will be the most well balanced high-end SoC for 2016 android devices..

In t... moreDid i've missed something new?The last time i check A8 in iphone6 Plus was killing the competition on 1080p offscreen&onscreen,newer A9 is even better....thats for the GPU.For the CPU A9 is the best this year with ~2300 points on single core.But let not go further into that debate of single vs multy or C vs Java.To keep it simple A9 is the king now,and even the old A8 can keep up with SD810/808.
What is this about releasing earilier to boost sales? I read, on this very site no less, that they were releasing this phone earlier because of some sort of convention for mobile devices. It takes place earlier this year (i'm assuming because of the day that it falls on), so they're releasing it a day or so before hand just like last year.
obengcliff, 27 Nov 2015Samsung Galaxy S7 will be out of box with UHD. trust me is a fact and serious perdition. Just ... moreI doubt they will. Most they'd do is an implementation similar to Sony, but I doubt that too. 4k is a huge step up from 2k, and even if the GPU is a lot better it still isn't good enough IMO.

ehm, isnt that for note 6 ? bc they talked about using snapdragon in s7... hmmm
i hope they launch a 6 inch plus phablet with that chip...like the z ultra... i want/need that size... 5.7 is too small for me...
dasman, 27 Nov 2015Nahhhhh. I counter your statement. Probably a better calibrated QHD panel, or even the same. T... moreBet me here and lets wait the day they will launch it. Reach me on firstname.lastname@example.org for what I said.

Of course it isn't going to reflect real usage but it should still be indicative of performance, and it generally is.
I don't see what all the excitement is about.
Benchmark tests are just that, they don't represent the real world, they're just synthetic test lab results to see what the chipset is capable of in lab conditions.
We all know that things are completely different in the real world and the use of every phone/device is different from software & firmware, to what the user/owner does with their device. To me there's only one true "benchmark" and that's the one when it's released with the full RTM soft/firmwares and it's put through its paces by an independent tester. It's only then will you get to see the true figures.
I have the Galaxy S6 and the Exynos processor in that phone is already super fast. The S7 is going to be a real beast, ready to destroy the competition.

Lol. Called it somewhere in a discussion the Exynos will break 100k. Guess what?
But alas, antutu is only part of the story. Not as reliable to some as well. Cinebench and Gfxbench will tell the tale of the 8890's prowess.
