Samsung Galaxy S7 Exynos 8890 edition benchmark tests are out: scores below LG G5 with Snapdragon 820

The Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge will feature the Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 system chip in the United States, but the international version of the phone will actually be powered by Samsung's own Exynos 8890 SoC.

It was exactly the Galaxy S7 with Exynos 8890 that was up for display at Mobile World Congress 2016, and we took the time to run a few benchmark tests and measure the capabilities of the new chip.

The Exynos 8890 is built on the 14nm manufacturing process and it's an octa core chip packing four high-performance cores clocked at up to 2.3GHz and four battery-savvy cores running at up to 1.5GHz.

Here is how this comes together in benchmarks:

AnTuTu
Higher is better
Samsung Galaxy S7 136695
LG G5 134074
Samsung Galaxy Note 5 67207
Apple iPhone 6s 59075
Vellamo Metal
Higher is better
Samsung Galaxy S7 3632
LG G5 3515
Samsung Galaxy Note 5 2532
Vellamo Browser
Higher is better
Samsung Galaxy S7 5339
LG G5 4498
Samsung Galaxy Note 5 5476
GFXBench T-Rex HD on-screen
Higher is better
Samsung Galaxy S7 53
LG G5 54.33
Samsung Galaxy Note 5 37
Apple iPhone 6s 59.1
GFXBench Manhattan on-screen
Higher is better
Samsung Galaxy S7 29
LG G5 17
Samsung Galaxy Note 5 15
Apple iPhone 6s 56.1

Well that's because the 820 is better in every way and exynos lovers hate it..... *evil grin*

Exynos lovers hated sd810, which was utterly sh*t. Sd820 seems to be very powerful. 800euros for 27fps. Well played sammy. Vulcan pc experience at work :D. That cintematic feel in the game.

Antutu puts more focus on single core performance and the SD 820 has better single core performance than the Exynos chip. Multi-core performance may be better with the Exynos chip.

Cpus have comparable performance on both variants. It's the gpu where it hurts the most. Pay 800euros for much inferior chipset. Isheep b*tched when there was 2-3% of difference between two variants. Andreno will he easily 30% faster than mali. Sammy's offering inferior hardware for Europeans for more cash than the superior US version. This is why I'm pissed. They should've restricted exynos to the Asian market or at least lower its price since it's greatly inferior. I'm not getting s7 if andreno proves to be much better. G5 will be probably a lot cheaper than the s7, yet it offers sd820. Sammy fooked up hard with this one.

First GFXBench SD820 results are actually a tad slower than these for the same resolution. Both well ahead of the 6s/6s Plus for the same resolution (and Samsung gives you a choice for output resolution too..)

not, GSMarena already has GFX benchmark, the 8890 is on par with snappy 810 in graphics department, which sucks for a new flagship of 2016

http://www.gsmarena.com/samsung_galaxy_s7_and_s7_edge_benchmarked_the_exynos_flavor-news-16794.php

here r the benchmarks comparing Z5 and mate8 to it, the custom samsung cores doesn't seem so custom to me, they have the exact same performance as the A72 cores, and the gfx scores are a tad bit lower than Z5 premium (810)

126. Macready (Posts: 810; Member since: 08 Dec 2014)


Those scores make no sense, knowing that the GPU is much faster than the one in the S6 (faster and 50% more threads). I used the GFXBench database instead.

Lol what? Exynos 7420 is already about 15% faster than sd810.

147. marorun (Posts: 2868; Member since: 30 Mar 2015)


Only because the SD810 throttled :)

At full speed whitout throttle the SD810 would have killed the Exynos 7420 in all departement.

This is fixed by funny to say using samsung 14 nm process and custom core from qualcomm.

I am glad Qualcomm shown thats they are the leader again!

The Exynos 7420 already outperforms the SD810. In both cpu and gpu. :>

well.. if this is the case then iphone 6s should top the antutu table as iphone 6s has more single core score than SD 820

No, people hated SN810 because it overheated and battery life was horrible.

SB820 seems okay so far.

Disappointing, I expected a score higher than my 6s plus, despite the lower benchmark score i'm sure it's a great device.

LG G5 is the best phone of 2016.
Samsung is DEAD, and has been since they've been copying Apple.

While Samsunsung is definitely NOT dead, sales DO NOT determine which smartphone is the best. By that logic, the iPhone is the best phone EVER.

"The best" is what's determined by what's best for the individuals wants and needs. There really is no "best", just what's best for YOU.

149. marorun (Posts: 2868; Member since: 30 Mar 2015)


Agreed.

If you want a flagship for gaming the G5 is for you.
If you want great lowlight picture the S7 is for you.

There is space for everyone.
But this year Samsung is not the king for performance and thats a reality.

20. Diezparda (Posts: 822; Member since: 23 Oct 2013)


LOL maybe because he's seeing the on screen result was far behind the 6S. Anyway i'm not relying too much on benchmark but we know if you're gamer you can't go wrong with the 6S (it's a monster anyway).

The biggest let down for me is Sammy didn't include FT, i think it's reserved for Note 6? or Samsung try to stay "original"? who knows? Still can't find 6S at any retail in Jakarta hahaha how sad... I'm really interested at 3D touch/FT.

Forcetouch is absolutly not a functional feature in My opinion, for me it is a gimmick. We have manager to live without it so far and in My opinion it is not a groundbreaking feature :)

I absolutely love 3D Touch. I use it all the time, and it's getting better every day as more and more devs include it. Your opinion is your opinion.

I think the 3D in a samsung would have been limited to there apps.....unless the would release the apk like the edge features. ..then who knows what it could be

I never had any experience with FT (on a smartphone), so i can't say much about it. Probably because i'm expecting too much for this feature, Anyway i simply love more feature that's why i love Android & TW.

With microsd card support I don't see why anyone would need more than 32GB of internal storage.

Well first of all, I'm not interested in this phone at all, it's all hypothetical. The Note 6 is what I'd want those things to apply to...well the Note 7 actually.

I just think 64 gigs + sd would be better than 32. I'm not an sd fan at all.

Not in the US and not in Europe.

32GB is all we will see, I said this would happen, you can't have both sdcard's and large internal storage together.

It's one or the other, networks and carriers will always want the cheapest device, having an sdcard slot gives them an excuse to never to stock the larger devices.

This is what everyone wanted right?

Some games are 4 gb in size and cant be moved to the SD card ( unless you adopt the sd card as internal wich the S7 and G5 dont support at all )

So if you are like me and have lots of games and apps you are scewed..

I keep like 60 business oriented apps on my phone at all time to show to clients.

I also play lots of games.

On my moto X play i have nearly 60 gb used out of my 144 total memory.

I'm waiting for this device, i think i'll go with the Note 5 instead but juicy 3600mah battery seems yummy.

Officially there is only 32GB and 64GB, unofficially you will probably never see a 64GB version in the flesh.

What use is 3D touch over all the quick actions you get via the edge screen? 3D touch is a meh gimmick, all of those "shortcuts" it claims to offer could be initiated via simple swipe-up gesture. Heck, a Play Store app called Action Launcher offers more than meh shortcuts, it offers widgets of the app via a simple swipe on the app icon.

https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.actionlauncher.playstore&hl=en

Force touch is just apple trying to create an excuse to limit ancient and basic Android features to their latest device. It brings nothing beneficial that wasn't already possible. I'm glad Samsung didn't bother implementing that useless crap.
