I will definitely NOT buy a Samsung phone just because it's the only one with 820 chipset. I can wait for better phones that will be released later next year. I really think because of this behaviour I will never buy a Samsung phone again and wait for XPERIA Z6!
Exynos phones maybe load apps faster, but they are so much inferior in graphic performance than snapdragon phones.
See any graphic benchmark tests recorded on yt to convince yourselves, the inferior framerating on samsung devices is really too obvious.
So Snapdragon anytime, exynos no thanks
Just boycott samsung...
They consistently use extortion ( like in this case), bribery and lies ( proven before the court more than once) to make the most buck of their mobile bussiness...
They are like...Monsanto of tech buissness, and should be banned to sell by law.
And no, samsung fans, I do not care about your opinions...
Zenodroid, 17 Dec 2015i still favorite exonys over snapdragon. i wish samsung would use their own instead of snapdragon.Samsung will use 820 and wouldnt tune it as best as possible, every problem samsung can rely to the 820 and trolling 820 weakness, after that samsung will release the latest Exynos to sell and praise only the good. This is marketing@_@
Anonymous, 17 Dec 2015I believe you haven use any of samsung latest phones,I had use it before. The gallery a bit slow when contain many photos. my friends use the Quickpic to solve this problem.

what next???? camera???
Anonymous, 17 Dec 2015You will agree with him, after a year. Samsung is very smart, they sell you at first is fas... moreIsn't that time to get a new phone? That is what warranty is for. It warrants phone to be spoilt after 1 year. Unless you are getting blackberry flagship of course. It is made to last at least 2 years. No phones are made to run for 20 years. And besides all phones lags after a year for some reason. And I mean all... including Samsung and Iphones. That is what life is. Or not AAPL would not be so lucrative.
You'll be surprised of what happens in the real world, if you can just step outside and make some friend with people and not phones.
Harmonica, 17 Dec 2015S2 running smoothly even now and i6 lagging seems like a dream come true for any samsung fan ;-)You'll be surprised of what happens in the real world, if you can just step outside and make some friend with people and not phones.
Anonymous, 16 Dec 2015How unprofessional.. Samsung was the first to s*** upon Qualcomm's 810.. Other manufacture... moresadly yes,..... becau7se seems that qualcomm in order to improve their chip manufacture process had to ask to samsung.... and also in order to samsung improve their chipset..they asked to qualcomm how to make proper custom cores wich is qualcome speciality example krait cores ......lg usually gets the best mobile chipset from qualcomm .. so it may turn that lg might get either an overclocked new version of the 820 or 821 maybe...
Anonymous, 17 Dec 2015GPU is only important in games. Pointless in other words since android only has low end games.... morecpu is definitely not getting slower...besides what's the point also increasing its speed, to achieve no lag experience?As far I can remember, we already achieve that since snapdragon 800-series. Yes, 820 might be slower than M1, but it's already faster than 7420, and we have no issues or whatsover with 7420. So, the thing that should really be put much efforts into in parallel with the current chip race is gpu. And snapdragon 820's graphic is way faster >>> http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/snapdragon-820-performance-preview,4389-4.html

So you're getting slower cpu and gpu, where's the good in that? I'm happy not to be in US, therefore I'll probably get the exynos version, I feel bad for US customers, it's as if Samsung is continuously punishing them.

Point is that all exynos devices eventually get Cyanogenmod support , they just get it a bit after Qualcomm devices. But so what? I will take good hardware over quick support any time. My exynos device is still running like a champ , if it was a Qualcomm it would already feel way too slow.
Anonymous, 17 Dec 2015How silly is that? Exynos M1 is 10% faster in single core and 40% faster in multi core than SD... moreThe CPU race is already pointless now. Though M1 might be faster than 820, both are faster than 7420. What 820 should be proud of is its blazingly fast GPU, currently topping A9's gpu capabilites. Increasing cpu's speed is not really as important, getting fast as 810 or 7420 is more than enough...
Jarret, 17 Dec 2015Samsung must be the better choice for Qualcomm's Snapdragon 820...The problem with the Exynos chip is that it is almost impossible to use the CyanogenMod ROM or any ROM based on CyanogenMod
