If manufacturing chips is that easy then why didn't qualcomm manufacture sd 820 by themselves. Scared maybe that it'd be another heating disaster like 810. Multicore score of exynos is still far better than sd.

Kettzy, 17 Mar 2016Better battery drainer? Lol... First of all, please get your facts checked. All Samsung flag... moreAre you saying SD version of S7 is FHD while Exynos version is QHD? Cause you'd be wrong then. Why are you even talking about 1080p in an article that concerns S7?
every time there is a post involving Qualcomm product and other processor, will incite a battle of comments (Pro-Sams Vs Pro-Quals). going through the comments, very few are objective, rational and realistic.
and the ridiculous thing is the say "Samsung is the maker of SD820" though it is a fact, impossible to consider it as a prove of superiority of samsung over qualcomm. Qualcomm is fabless, they will make the chipset in their labs during the its early stages. and then testing its performance before the mass production.
if they are confident that this is the final thing in the chipset (lets say SD820), they will contract a firm to do the mass production for the chipset (and in SD820 it is Samsung).
so, for the fool people who gives samsung credit for manufacturing SD820, you do not understand anything !!
Kettzy, 17 Mar 2016Better battery drainer? Lol... First of all, please get your facts checked. All Samsung flag... moreYeah samsung is the one who does dirty work(hard labour) of manufacturing. but cihp is designed solely by qualcomm and Samsung dosent have any part of qualcomm tech...samsung is only under contract next year it coud be tmc...like before...so joke is on you if you cant distinguish those things...
Cristian96, 17 Mar 2016You live in fairytale?
What chipset flagship phones(S4,S5,G2,G3,Z,Z1,Z2,Z3,HTC M8...and so o... moreBetter battery drainer? Lol...
First of all, please get your facts checked. All Samsung flagships (except S6 which did not even consider SD) have been shipped with both Exynos and SD processors in different markets. And samsung shipped exynos versions in key markets for them (i.e. Korea, China, India and some parts of europe) since they have better markets in these areas.
I'm not saying Snapdragon is in anyway inferior, but exynos is on-par and in some cases, especially battery optimization, better than it's SD counterpart. Go and check any device that samsung uses, even a 2000mAh battery on Galaxy alpha gives better performace than SD phone with 2800mAh. Samsung pushes every limit on their phone and hence even when their phones are ahead of the curve on every hardware aspect, they catch the competition in all the benchmarks. Read about S7's benchmarks which clearly state that if same processors are used on 1080p devices, they'll throw the competition out of the ring hands down. But you clap for SD with 1080p against Exynos with 1440p. Lol.
Also btw, since you're so desperate to underplay samsung, I should tell you that your beloved Snapdragon 820 is manufactured by Samsung only. Lol... Joke's on you!
xda forum seem to suggest exynos runs cooler and less bugs, I'm so confused now.
Illmatic662, 17 Mar 2016Wow, QualComm/Snap Dragon stepped their game up big time.
They Exynos used to be far and aw... moreYou live in fairytale?
What chipset flagship phones(S4,S5,G2,G3,Z,Z1,Z2,Z3,HTC M8...and so on) used for years? exynos or snapdragon? Stop kidding yourself qualcomm was the best and it will stay the best chipset around.
Exynos is a joke with inferior gpu and better battery drainer...
LOL Z5 outperforms S7 in graphic onscreen bench...this just proved how much is useles QHD resolution and all phones should use FHD unless it's 4K UHD for those pixel freaks...
the main question is which chipset is the most cooler after high usage
Anonymous, 17 Mar 2016Samsung downlocked Exynos to match SD820. Initial scores on Geekbench (4 months ago) were 2... moreFour months ago these SoC weren't even final, many times final consumer version are not able to perform at the original level. Maybe at that time the devices were overheating so they had to necessarily bottleneck the SoCs. For all that matters they bottlenecked the SD too.
Many other tech sites are saying the Exynos is more efficient for battery life. Snapdragon 820 = dragon breath. The International market got the better end of the deal because most Americans are brainwashed by Apple pie anyway. We International folks get the battery efficient Exynos, more storage space other than 32 GB, and a white model.
I would rather lose a little with benchmark scores and minor performance with intensive gaming where real world usage won't make me notice to have longer battery life. Exynos, stick to it. Samsung wanted to keep CA-based and used their SoC this year again only to send all to the States. Samsung knows they can never beat Apple in their homeland. So what do they do? Do what Nokia did all those years. Ignore them while offering the best to the continents where they outsell Apple.
