My wife has s7 from att(Snapdragon) and i have s7 g930f international version (Exynos). In quadrant professional benchmark her s7 scores little over 40.000 and my s7 scores around 65.000.But in everyday regular usage you can't see any difference in performance.Just a better battery life in my s7 with Exynos.
Anonymous, 06 May 2017The biggest fail Samsung ever done is the s8 . In future they want people to carry tv in pocket my s8 shows slow charging with charger carried in bix. i tries to follow instruction from internet but the message slow charing still appears. around 4-5 hours to charge is ridicilious.

Every time you want to unlock the screen.
Does anyone know Volte enabled mobile phone available in UAE (Dubai) Market?

Suhanoo, 07 May 2017I admire your hatred to Samsung
But......................1080p is default, but not from Samsu... moreHa Ha.....
Swallow your fanboy culture
We all are users
I merely enlighten you with real facts
Paradoxically; you put up with the issuees such as Iris scanner's eyeball cooking mood spoil the eyes , auto restart issue , classic Amoled colour degradation issue and so on...I double-admire you again
BUT the cheating issue is added... Samsung use the random UFS 2.0 and UFS 2.1
So every S8 may be unlucky Ufs 2.0 or normal Ufs 2.1IIPerhaps it is a new lucky draw plan of S8
If you were an age-old one in modern tech world...Do honestly your homework
But Keep these true facts in mind...we all are users and we should support true facts among us as we will have to pay much money for smartphones which is actually useful to everybday of life
BODY WIDTH defines how big the phone is
With gangling ratio of S8 ....it is fairly taller than others.. .....
SO We compare S8 with SONY brand new midrange XA1 because Xa1 has the same body width. to S8
S8,...149mm 68mm 8mm
XA1, 145mm 67mm. 8mm
Despite S8 has 5.8 inches OnPaper , it has a 5 inches phone. as XA1 has 5 inches display and is the same width to S8
Conculation,. S8 is a TALLER version of 5inches. phones
and XA1 is better price tag and better optimization
Twatonk, 07 May 2017That is not even worth Â€800 if only 3000 mAh battery and Quick Charge 2.0 when you could put ... moreBro, please don't get upset on my words. But since when Apple is supporting "fast charge"? LOL. Isn't it better to have SOMETHING than rather have NOTHING? Even LG has the fast charge now. And it's been there for ages now. So why didn't Apple put it in iPhone 6, 6S, 6S+, 7 or 7+?
I used iPhone 6, but sold it because it didn't support customization and not even fast charging. Even as my supporting daily driver, it was not enough.
But what it had me stuck to it for a while was it's smoothness. It's simply something that Android users won't get anytime soon. But then again, customization is not something Apple users will get soon, no, scratch it, ever. So it's about your choice.
Take care. Ciao...

But......................1080p is default, but not from Samsung, but from Google. Every phone comes with Android 7.0 and higher comes with 1080p by default (even if the screen can show more). If you check LG G6, it is the same. You have to manually upgrade it to higher resolution.
I know that not everyone is like me. That's why I never said (or will say) something else is bad and something is good. I always say, it's your money, your choice. Choose wisely so that the device serves you better than other devices within your budget.
Maybe I was wrong about the iris scanner. I didn't come across the line before. So what? Now I know it. At least I have the guts to accept my limitations and say accordingly. You trolls are after something silly like red tint and are blabbering like some goats all over the place.
Even Apple put dangerous disclaimers in their official disclaimer page. For example, iPhone 7/7+ is water resistant to the grade of IP67. Very good. But if you dunk one in the water and then try to charge it immediately, the device will fry. And funny thing is, Apple did the disclaimer about that in the page. And the warranty don't even cover it. Whereas Samsung devices decline to charge if the charging port is wet to save it from frying.
Every company has this "marketing gimmicks", probably you've never heard of. I guess you never read those in the high school (or maybe you're new in tech world). That's why you don't know that there is nothing called perfect. Maybe your brain didn't get that line from my earlier post. That's why you're assuming stupidly about my loyality toward Samsung. I've listed a few phone manufacturers that I used the phones from, which clearly skipped your "perfect visioned" eyes (I wonder how). I'm just finding the S8 giving me the most of what I want at present.
And red tint is something not happening to every S8 (maybe you just don't know it). As I said, you're not happy with your own phone, so you're here to see how many are happy with theirs and trying to ruin their happiness. So sad. I feel pity for you.
Be happy with your own device, that is what I said. I don't know haw many times I'll have to say that no phone is perfect. It's you who make things "perfect for you".
Next time, please try to read the whole comment or don't read at all. Don't just make assumptions and waste your time or someone else's.
Take care. Ciao...
That is not even worth Â€800 if only 3000 mAh battery and Quick Charge 2.0 when you could put Quick Charge 4.0 as Snapdragon 835 already supported it. This is why Samsung always behind Apple
Suhanoo, 07 May 2017I have given up justifying to the trolls over here. Trolls will be trolls. No matter what they... moreI admire to your loyalty to Samsung
But..... Open your eyes and read official samsung disclaimer pages
Iris scannerspoil your eye vision... Samsung clearly say it....Also easily read in S8 reviews ::"gorgeous hardwear" post by 'Ars Technica'
Do you also know S8 runs 1080p by default and frustrated 720p ...Perhaps it is Samsung tech to boost battery
Even letter box720 p sound like tiny window
No one force you not to buy 'red tint-auto reboot-screen burn-stutter' S8 But Keep in mind: Everybody is not like your idea
Have a nice time
It's an awesome phone I am using for the past few weeks, I was using note4 before, when I switched to s8 I feel the screen is little smaller that note4 also new android release notification does not look so good.
User1234, 07 May 2017I got samsung phone with S Amoled for almost 3 years and havent noticed any burn issueYes, I am using Amoled sinc past 3 years and I have screen burn issue which non recoverable, Very sad :(
Galaxy Note 3 N9005
Dont go for only screen S8 having slow exynos processor in some variants, screen having some flickering problem in some models of samsung having superAMOLED display, and hope S8 dont explode like note7 previous, now we afraid to buy samsung smartphone after this issue, and no return money offered by samsung but gave s7 in return. Guys wait for NOKIA 8 and Iphone 8 they have better specifications than samsung s8.
