This is no more than a deceptive advertising unsupported by real facts. Just naked allegations.
I just got my s7 a couple days since I've had it it cut off on me 3times with a battery % of 84... 53 .... and 37 has anyones done that
After hearing about that Snapdragon version outperform my Exynos variant in 3D I was a little bit jealous. Now I can see that Exynos has it's pros too :D
This is all very well, but as a normal purchaser (I'm in the UK but the question applies everywhere) how can I get a choice of which processor the S7 edge I buy actually has?
BTW, what is the point of testing text only Web sites? Damn near all Web sites are graphics heavy and advert and like/share button heavy. Is this why I have never ever achieved anything remotely like the battery life that gsmarena lists?
The Cat, 20 Mar 2016I honestly didn't see that coming. It seems that the only thing the SD820 has going for it is ... moreWhen it comes to XDA support for the Snapdragon version, i think you are in to be disappointed: http://www.xda-developers.com/galaxy-s7-bootloader-lock-explained-you-might-not-get-aosp-after-all/
Gonna buy the Exynos version since I really love playing games. =)
Exynos bootloader is Not even locked like the sd820. Thanks God for Exynos. Thanks God for Samsung.
siva9952, 20 Mar 2016always on = always battery drain.Isn't it obvious. That is the whole point of the article. Only 1% per hour. Not bad considering there is only 24 hours a day. You could just assumed your phone battery starts at 76% after fully charged. And of course, you could just turn off the features and enjoy a full battery life. Nothing to complain at all. Your choice.
M0RtiM3R, 20 Mar 2016You want your S7 for:
Battery Life: Exynos
Performance: SnapdragonAndroid is highly parallelized os. exynos would be faster in every day stuff, probably not games though due to worse gpu.
So if you want battery: Buy Exynos
Performance? Again Exynos.
Look here: http://www.ubergizmo.com/2016/03/exynos-galaxy-s7-outperforms-snapdragon-820/
Games? Snapdragon (although the difference is probably small, probably non extant in less demanding games)
XDA? Maybe snapdragon, that is as soon as bootloader will be unlocked. As it seems currently both would be pretty heavily locked down.
Boldy, 20 Mar 2016Oh boy. GSMArena battery test is done by loading a text only Web page every once in a while. G... more1% (i assume you are correct) which mean it had been used right ?
You would realize you posting wall of pointless text .
Herodroid, 20 Mar 2016CPU seems 1 by 1 but SD has bigger single core score which is more important than multi core.You are wrong. Read those 2 articles to see why more cores actually is better.
Jin1234, 20 Mar 2016Exynos better for battery life. Performance wise, choose Snapdragon. I will go with Exynos. Lo... moreThe sd820 is 100% slower than the Samsung CPU, it also lags in games, there is loads of videos on YouTube on how crap the sd820 is when using 2k screen, it ok when using 1080p
There have been vids of better multi tasking on the Exynos too, would appreciate if GSM could test this too :)
Guess it is worrying for other phones with the Snapdragon 820... I wonder how will other important Android flgships like the LG G5 and HTC 10 fared against the 8890's S7.
