Because the exynos is the best processor ever, it constantly ranks as one of the highest
dual cores on the market, the exynos completes the ultimate android package by being smooth operable, great at 3d and 2d games, and everything possible

I would like to have to samsung processor Exynos in my samsung products due to the overall speed as compared to the other processor's that are beinmg replaced for the sake of 4g speed. I have a SG2 on t-mobile my main reason. I have had a chance to play with the At&t version and it is noticible the speed diff. Not that The t-mobile version is slow but it is a diff that I have noticed.

Exynos is probably the smoothest experience you can have in a mobile processor. The reason I demand Exynos is the reason I demand Samsung, I want the best. I want the smoothest, fastest and most powerful experience I can get out of my mobile. I love my Skyrocket but Exynos would be all the sweeter!

"Why would you demand having an Exynos processor in your smartphone and/or tablet?"

Answer: The exynos processor has proven to be the far superior processor over the rest. Not just because of benchmark tests but easily in daily use. Where you get stutter and lag with overclocked snapdragon processors, you get a smooth and reliable experience with the exynos processor. From intense live wallpapers to heavy flash websites it has no issues or problems keeping up with your tasks. I truely believe the SGS2 was such a big hit thanks to the processor alone. I would even go as far as to say I would rather have the exynos processor over 4G or even LTE period.

23. remixfa (Posts: 14188; Member since: 19 Dec 2008)


I would definitely take 3G and Exynos over 4g and a crapdragon. I dont even have to think about that. Hell, i've been trumpeting a 3G/ 4g 21mbps HSPA+ SGS2/Note for T-Mo for a while. No luck :(

Honestly, why not take an Exynos and HSPA+ if you don't have LTE in your area.

322. remixfa (Posts: 14188; Member since: 19 Dec 2008)


you misunderstand. Tmobile wont take the exynos because its only 21mb/s HSPA+ capable, not 42mb/s.. which is rediculous. I would take it at 21mb/s, 3g, and even the 2g international version (3g/4g doesnt work on non tmobile phones) since wifi is everywhere. just gimmie some exynos lovin :) lol

Why would you demand having an Exynos processor in your smartphone and/or tablet?

Because Remix said they are just that good! :) I love it Proto. :)

Why do I want an exynos? Because its the best chip on the market. I am a chip geek. Is there anyone more geeky about this on this site? lol. I want the best, and only Samsung has it right now. More horsepower, more polygons, better battery life, versatile as all heck with modding. Pair that with the HD screen on the Note, its S-Pen, and my drawing abilities, and its a match made in heaven. :) :) :)

This question was MADE for me. lol. If there was EVER a contest on this site I would hope I'd win, it would be this one. No one is a bigger and more consistent noise maker for the benefits of Exynos than I am. :) :) :) :) :)

And yet.. here I sit without one, because I'm constantly thwarted by my carrier's use of crapdragons over Exynos and being too poor to justify buying the international versions myself. :( (

In basic performance, the Exynos processor is superior to Qualcomm at the same speeds. Even in the SGS2, the 1.2GHz Exynos processor beats the Qualcomm clocked at 1.5GHz. Despite the fact Exynos may not support LTE, considering the phone is available to AT&T, where LTE is only available in limited markets, having the HSPA+ bands with the Exynos processor would be much better than the current processor with LTE. Having the Exynos with HSPA+ bands would be much better until battery life can be much better on LTE, or its just not worth it especially with LTE only available in a few places for AT&T.

I would rather have an Exynos processor in my smartphone and tablet because of two reason: It's a powerful SoC with great power management and a potent GPU (mali-400) accompanying it. The other reason is the fact that's it's home grown by Samsung, and I think any thing made by Samsung is awesome, especially the GALAXY Note.

i love the exynos processor because it is faster than other processors, eat less battery, and very stable to handle any game or video of any size, provide a smooth performance. not only myself notice that but a lot of other exynos user recognize the advantage of the exynos cpu. just one thing it is not friendly, its price is more expensive than others. i think it is should be cheaper cause samsung make it and install it to samsung phone. so the cost should be cheaper.

Why would I demand the Exynos processor in my phone/tablet...I have been following the realease of the Galaxy Note since last year. I knew it was the phone that I truly wanted. I have seen countless videos of said phone. I hate lag. Let me say that one more time...I HATE lag. The international version is as smooth as butter however the ATT version shows some lag. Not a lot mind you but some. Did I say I hate lag...Give me the Exynos. Please. I read Phonearena everyday...your site is amazing. Thanks for all the information you have provided me. Sincerely yours
