Try, in vain (for an additional fee, of course) to be taken into account and the processor Exynos. It cannot compare, from any point of view, with 820 Snapdragon, this is an absolute champion.
Well... there you see how much you can optimize your own chip, rather than a chip you don't know at 100%.
I guess the result would be different when comparing an SD820 from another phone with Exynos.
In any case, now you now exynos variant runs slightly better than SD variant on Samsung S7.
RapeFruit, 25 Mar 2016i have the exynos version, and the battery is Great. 7 hours Screen On Time, and i charge it e... moreI'm actually surprised that's what's great nowadays. Well, I've been happily using my old Xperia T which lasts 2 days and a few hours until I got a Moto G 2nd gen from my gf... and then it got stolen, so I came back to my old phone.
If 1 day is great with the new phones then I think they should work more on new battery technologies rather than bigger cameras on phones that already have an excellent photo quality. i would say rather than higher speed chips since the ones there are now are already pretty fast but... with higher requirement games and the recent VR it seems we'll need even more performance... which at the end will require much more energy and thus a new battery technology.

If you are a developer you know single threaded performance is still very much important because far from every problem your application needs to solve is possible to break down into sub problems to solve in parallell. You will always gain from high single threaded performance, that is not true for high multithreaded performance.
Adreno 530 use more memory that the exynos.
512 vs 256 aprox.
So... Less momory for the system in the exynos
4 GB in Exynos and 4 GB in S820
Adreno need more memory or at less, Sansung set the diferences in that point.
~3.7 in exynos and 3.5 in S820... thats for the system the rest for the gpu
Sory my inglish
Anonymous, 25 Mar 2016The adreno is indeed a lot better in benchmarks than the Mali. BUT, if you compare games li... moreI just think that it is quite unfair to judge Qualcomm by s7 only. SD820 is not owned by a phone manufacturer, not like exynos. Exynos is jus like Apple AX chip, the phone manufacturer (Samsung and Apple) can make the chip what they want, and can optimize them well. I will judge Qualcomm by the majority of phones using SD820. it will tell that SD820 is worse than exynos or there are some manufacturers that is unable to optimize SD820
It might be slower. But 95% of the consumer does not use the phone that way. Look the iphone6 and earlier iphone has only 1 GB of ram that was a real pain but look at their sales. I agree that iphone 6s is improve a lot. But s7 edge is much better espacially for the price. We US customer got SD version it might be slower but do not forget that we get the phone at the lowest price in the world. We get BOGO + netflix + gear vr + $30 gift card. So no any complain for me.
My exynos Tablets gets official CM12.1 support: https://download.cyanogenmod.org/?device=lt03wifi
And unofficial CM13 supoort: http://forum.xda-developers.com/galaxy-note-10-2014/orig-development/lt03wifi-cm13-0-unofficial-builds-t3332894
You Qualcomm fans should stop lying for once. Also enjoy your locked bootloader. Chances are the Exynos variant will get kickass roms long before the Snapdragon variant this time around. And god would I laugh: better performance, better battery, better support. Only silly people would remain faithful to firedragon ...
this is stupid.... how come that exynos along with ram can swith apps and sd820 cant with same amount being more powerfull ...this is poor optimization with the software...... samsung should be embarassed ..uisng 4g 4 times the ram than an old 2013 moto g wich keeps everything running fine even with sd400 ... i have G2 sd800 and i have not to reload anything ... dont blame such a powerfull processor with bugs than manuafcture worried to fix for their own soc than competition under same case .......
We already know exynos is slightly better than snapdragon where it counts. Does it make a difference? Perhaps but only minimally so.
@ 1:03 it looks like a fumble on loading the camera. Looks like user error to me. Anyone else catching this?
Well, that was expected as always: The SD is better on extreme performance which isn't always needed, only for benchmarking, which isn't everything, far from that. Else, on termes of heat, speed, battery consumption & multi tasking, Exynos always wins.
Exynos version is a beast but it still reloads one game.This Phone smokes every other phones out of water(pun intended).Lets see about Xiaomi mi5 version with ~180000 on antutu and HTC 10 and LG G4 and oneplus 3.But by the time these phones reach the market,Samsung would've sold millions of Galaxy s7/s7 edge and in a position where the other manufactures eating up their share of flagship wouldn't be a problem for them.Its a win win for Samsung anyway.They have no real competitor at this point of time
Lead2XL, 25 Mar 2016Almost nobody cares about slight speed differences at this level except extreme gamers and tho... moreIt's not slight by the end of it, it's 30% slower, that's very visible. If you multitasking don't buy Snapdragon. Also Gamers should not care about the slower solution because there only gpu matters. You're exactly wrong about your remark.
Gamers should buy the SoC with the faster gpu, the rest should care about tests like this (and not Antutu who is the devildevil and a misinformation machine filled with lies).
Max..Payne, 25 Mar 2016This is why I always say kids, don't believe in benchmarks. It's all about optimization. Exyno... moreBenchmarks do matter. Shirty benchmarks like Antutu don't matter because they measure the wrong thing (nobody cares about single core anymore and gpu is only useful on 3d games).
Antutu must die and be replaced by benchmarks that actually show which phone is faster. At this point Antutu only sells misinformation to people and I feel bad for people that pay attention to it, Antutu devs are clearly paid by Apple and Qualcomm (the two evil companies of mobiles).

That's a vicious myth you're perpetuating. Qualcomm only used highly clocked cores for their first 2 cores just to game the benchmarks and show themselves faster. One more reason why Antutu is stupid, it cares about single core performance while it *doesn't matter* on Android anymore...
I feel bad for Qualcomm fans, you've been trumped once again by this greedy company, Qualcomm...
