Anonymous, 29 Nov 2015Actually previous devices especially earlier Exynos ones had plenty equal rom support. And ... moreTell that to the ROM makers who pin the blame on Exynos due to lack of source code, documentation among other things, whereas SD provides very good developer support but you're partially right Samsung does make it harder by locking them down. They really, really want you to use Touchwiz and nothing else lol
Anonymous, 29 Nov 2015They haven't announced anything. Industry sources claim they're testing phones with both, but ... moreThere are more sites reporting 2 versions than just one, either all of their sources are wrong (which is highly unlikely) or Samsung is pulling a quick on us.

CPU p... moreLol you implying that iPhones don't lag, have bugs or experience any crashes? And to say that Samsung put in 0 effort toward optimization after so many users complained about it over the years is laughable. They must've done something because less and less S/Note users are complaining especially with the newer models, they just need to keep working on it they'll get there eventually.

Their basic users the ones who use their phones for the most mundane of tasks like selfies, texting and social media.
Lol, 30 Nov 2015Do you even know how difficult it is to design a SoC?Do you know that they have only been making custom cores for the last few generations and that has not to do with the size of the cores?
Lol, 30 Nov 2015What extreme crashes?You must not have been using ios that long
AnonD-443545, 29 Nov 2015Firstly I'm using a new iPhone 6s Plus and I consider myself as a regular user but I love to k... moreIf you want to get more factual and realistic it more has to do with the fact that ios is still much more restricted and limited and the SoC uses larger cores.
And don't even compare ram when it comes to the extreme app crashes in ios.
And to act like Samsung has done nothing to optimize their ui and drive nothing but chase benchmarks just because they are works leaders in tech save are making powerful tech... Imagine that.... You are just being a blind follower rambling savoir things you have no clue about

And lol. Pretending everything apple is actually supremely optimized and other companies don't optimize.
Anonymous, 30 Nov 2015You are very clever dear GSMArena...
"10,3692" you didn't wrote this mistaken by accident.
Y... moreYou are getting confused with with the separator system.
What your are wrote is European system but US, decimal, and scientific notation differs.
• United States — 4,321.768
• Canada — 4,321.768
• Great Britain — 4.321,768
• European — 4.321,768
• Decimal notation — 4,321.768
• Scientifically — 4.321768×103
It can be confusing at times, since readers are from all around the world. It can be daunting task to specify all this information for author. Hence mostly "Decimal notation" system is followed (hope author is following), which is commonly used by scientists, mathematicians and engineers.

You are very clever dear GSMArena...
"10,3692" you didn't wrote this mistaken by accident.
You did like that because of manipulating readers.
Score is actually "103692 or 103.692" it is about 40000 more points than highest score.
But if you write like this: "10,3692" , people thinks it is 10 million instead of 100 thousand.
It is not ridiculous, because Mali T880 is very strong GPU and newest M1 architecture of Samsung is very powerful CPU, they also using UFS disks...
You may want to think fastest DDR4 rams also made by samsung.
So, I think not a big deal...
I guess SD 820 will also score about 80-85k soon...
GPU of SD820 is powerful but not against T880, it is near powerful to Tegra K1...
Smart, very smart...
AnonD-442781, 29 Nov 2015Exactly, it would be different. So if they did that single core scores would go down. Point is... moreYou are correct.
If Apple used more cores, they would have to decrease the size of each core to fit them on the SoC, which would lower the single core score.

Their cores are just bigger than other cores, nothing more. It's not difficult to do, and Apple isn't really smart enough to make a new technology that would give them 4 cores with the same power.

Stealing menu's and functions from android, clock design from train station,etc?
Tell me anything, but anything that developed or founded or imagined by Apple only which wasn't known before...
Don't try, you can't find.
Apple never invented anything, including iphones.
Apple just re-worked on things thoose were already existed.
