Samsung uses Exynos to avoid paying the Qualcomm tax. Charging the same amount of money for an inferior product.
Other reasons: Samsung needs to keep Exynos alive to appease the labor unions in South Korea. Samsung also sees itself as the de facto Android rival of Apple, so it wants to use its own custom chips. Observe how One UI becomes more and more like iOS with every update, Samsung no longer including the charger in the box etc.
If Exynos were that good or at least cost effective, many other Android phones would be using Exynos chips instead of Qualcomm Snapdragon.
I rest my case.
Anonymous, 13 Jan 2021Apple chips are flagship and also power efficient. No. Absolutely not. Apple chip is not power efficient like for example snapdragon 665, 670 or snapdragon 765... Not even close...
10Plus, 13 Jan 2021Exynos haters be like: oooh, this is not true😲😲What do you mean by haters.... exynos was always 2-3 generations behind compared to sd..... I am using s10 so i know it sucks in gaming and never had issues with processing power. Same here exynos 2100 will be more powerful than sd888 but it will again lag behind in gpu, it has got 10 less cores than kirin.
I don't care if Exynos or Snapdragon is in my phone and I don't even care if that processor is a bit weaker than the other one because I know both will be powerfull enough to handle everything I throw at it during those 3-4 years.
10Plus, 13 Jan 2021Exynos haters be like: oooh, this is not true😲😲That not true... Exynos hater will simply glance, and pretend it doesn't exist. Occasionally, they will also laugh at XDA if a dev. finally mange to crack it by saying things like "really? now now?"
Vegetaholic, 13 Jan 2021RIP SD888, Exynos 2100 beats 888 in every aspect, new king is arriving :)there is more to it than that, what aout cooling, efficiency etc...
RIP SD888, Exynos 2100 beats 888 in every aspect, new king is arriving :)
Onion, 13 Jan 2021overall same with 888, just abit higher clock speed. tho adreno will be a better bet for gpu. ... moreimagine the amount of nails already in the coffin...
the note 7
the note 20
s21 lineup (or not)
exynos not able to deliver
note 5 not coming to the EU
inability to make a good entry level phone to compete with others
copying promotional images for ipad during tab s2 launch
It would have been worthwhile to mention AV1 hardware decode capabilities in the Exy2100.
Anonymous, 12 Jan 2021The issue is 888 or Xiaomi poor cooling system?
Since no other phone with 888 is available... morePoor cooling system?
lol, a mobile SOC is not supposed to reach 65°C in any circumstance. It's impossible for any passive cooling solution to dissipate that much heat.
The fact is that while we are fighting over SD888 vs Exynos 2100 and IQOO 7 vs Mi 11 and whatnot, we need to be more united. Like Instagram models using iPhones instead of for example Vivo X60Pro, we would need to convince them that these phones deserve to be status symbols instead of Apple stuff.
Hopefully the Exynos 2100 will be a catalyst for a campaign to start switching iPhone users to Android and Harmony OS.
MTJ, 13 Jan 2021Maybe,maybe not....Mi 11 has used extensive cooling system but still gets hot....and also test... morelooks like qualcomm made a big mistake using samsung chips.. ahem.. exynos.. ahem 888 is like a slower version (clockspeed) of 2100 exynos..
overall same with 888, just abit higher clock speed. tho adreno will be a better bet for gpu. samsung better deliver this time, if it still plague with issues.. then its a nail in the coffin
Shadocx, 13 Jan 2021But we already know the SD 888 can reach 3600-3800 in multi core score, so why are you linking... moreThis is new version of geekbench 5.2.5
The score you saw is using Greek bench 5.0.2 😉
You know geekbench is own by apple they lowering score every update to make bionic look super fast
