European Samsung Galaxy S7 runs through Geekbench, matching the score of the Samsung Galaxy S7 edge

Earlier this month, the Samsung Galaxy S7 went through Geekbench with the Exynos 8890 SoC inside. This model (SM-G930W8) attained single-core and multi-core scores of 1873 and 5946, respectively. Just a couple of days ago, another version of the Galaxy S7 also was benchmarked by Geekbench. But this unit carries a different model number (SM-G930F), which indicates it is heading to Europe. It also will be powered by the Exynos 8890 SoC...

Huh? How would it transfer faster when it only has a USB 2.0 port limited at 480mbps (~50-60 MB/s). YOU're full of it and I'm a Samsung fanboy but they made a big mistake with dropping USB3.0 which they had on the Note3.

HAHA! So this Alan F. is so completely clueless as to think that Samsung with a completely new custom core would only match the Exynos 7420 performance? Get him off PhoneArena. You should have writers who know something about tech and not clueless random people.

It doesn't feel right. All of you come to me when I say something bad against Samsung but thats what my experience is. I'm expecting great things to work as flawlessly as much coz its a flagship Galaxy but to my dismay it wasn't. Yes it's fluidly smooth on the first month, but when things get cramped up I see the bigger picture. 3Mbits/s doesn't feel USB 3.0 to me, maybe its their implementation or maybe UFS is slow when connected to a PC. Office apps got frequently hiccups, tried different apps, there is no significant difference. My smartphone is my portable PC when I'm not in my desk and when I'm on the go. Too bad it didn't work for me. It was different since the S5. I love the S5. Worked up on my expectations, I wasn't able to keep it coz of contract reasons. I really hope S7 would be a comeback to me. It was really a bad experience with the S6. What the hell Samsung was thinking? Don't fix something that which is not broken.

None of it matters. Exynos 8890 speed = SD820 speed IRL.

I fully believe the 8890 will DESTROY the 820 and look forward to production samples.

And what will happen if 8890 destroys the 820? Will you gain anything?

How many people really care about these scores seems to not really put them off buying a smartphone,Just as long it Last Long and as a super camera then people will just buy the smartphone they prefer
