Did you know that Exynos processors now power more than 20 different smartphones (and some aren't made by Samsung)?

The very first Exynos SoC - the Exynos 3 Single - was used in some Samsung Galaxy S models from 2010 (for example, the Galaxy S Fascinate and the Galaxy S 4G were powered by this processor). All of Samsung’s flagships released after that - Galaxy S II, Galaxy S III, Galaxy S4, Galaxy S5 - had at least one version that used (or uses) an Exynos chipset. The same goes for the original Galaxy Note, the Note II, Note III, and Note 4.
The latest member of the Exynos family is the Exynos 7 Octa - which is another name for Exynos 5433, the chipset found inside the non-American version of Galaxy Note 4.
But it’s not just Samsung that makes handsets using Exynos chipsets. China’s Meizu and Lenovo also released smartphones based on this platform, and we assume other companies will do it, too, in the future. Here’s a (seemingly complete) list of Exynos-powered smartphones, with the mention that many of them also have Snapdragon variants:
- Samsung Galaxy S
- Samsung Wave S8500
- Samsung Wave II S8530
- Samsung Continuum I400
- Google Nexus S
- Samsung Galaxy S II
- Samsung Galaxy Note
- Samsung Galaxy S III
- Samsung Galaxy Note II
- Samsung Galaxy S4
- Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom
- Samsung Galaxy Note 3
- Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Neo
- Samsung Galaxy S5
- Samsung Galaxy Win
- Samsung Galaxy Light
- Samsung Galaxy K Zoom
- Samsung Galaxy Alpha
- Samsung Galaxy Note 4
- Lenovo LePhone K860
- Meizu MX
- Meizu M9
- Meizu MX2
- Meizu MX3
Do you have any favorites from the handsets listed above (and seen below)? Let us know in the comments!

Weren't the early iPhones powered by Samsung chips as well?

Yes, but not named Exynos.

Could be a good SoC if the drivers weren't closed source and they actually supported more LTE bands.

The 5433/7 octa is a killer SoC. It practically kills any other chip in CPU power by at least 30%. Even the denver tegra K1 is no match for the raw power. i watched a video review and saw it do the software refocusing( the samsung implementation of that DoF thingy) and it was DAMN fast. It was able to do it in real time while the s5 and the note 4 s805 take about a second to change from near focus to far focus. Also the opening and closing apps was insanely fast. The exynos chips also have the great wolfson DACs. So sad my country is getting the snapdragon 805 version.

I hope that Samsung expands their LTE support, so the US and other countries can use Exynos chips. I'd really like high quality audio, i.e. the Wolfson DACs, and Qualcomm is unlikely to ever improve their audio quality.

I'm pretty certain the Tegra K1 Denver outperforms it by a decent margin in single-core performance, but it's slightly behind the Exynos 5433 in multi-core performance. Regardless, it's still an impressive chip and it's a shame that Qualcomm has such a near monopoly in the states. (Remind me of their United States competitors please??)

The denver is running on 64 bit while the 5433 beats it still while being on 32 bit. When note 4 will get android L, it'll receive around 20% speed bump. Now the scores are: Single core: 5433: 1280 ( around 1500 expected after 64 bit support) K1: 1800 Multi core: 5433: 4200 ( around 5k expected after 64 bit) K1: 3200 Android manages multiple cores pretty well and hence most of the cores are used pretty well. So single core performance is important but not so much as it is in iOS. Multi core is more important in android.

Its sad that Sam takes so much time to release the source code . And K1(dual core) is better .

Exynos FTW. I remember in 2011 and 2012 when Exynos was one of the strongest SoCs. Can't wait to see the power of Exynos 7 Octa. (The Exynos 3 still powers my Galaxy S very well)

FIRST SAMSUNG CHEATED BENCHMARKS IN 2011 AND 2012 AND EXYNOS SCORED LITTLE BIT BETTER THAN OTHERS + TRY THEM IN REAL LIFE THEY ARE SLOW AND LAGY MORE THEN THE OLD OMAP AND EXYNOS RUNS HOTTER THAN JET ENGINE STOP THIS CRAP
