Here are the first benchmarks of the Galaxy S8+ and its Exynos 8895 chipset

In completely unsurprising news, the first benchmarks of the international variant of the Galaxy S8+ may have just hit the web. Seriously, Samsung, get your leaks under control. Still, this is also possibly the first benchmark we have of the Exynos 8895 chipset, and the results are certainly promising...

Still slower than iPhone 6s

Even iCrap 7 is slower than OP3T so go back to your cave https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mcTAXsFHu5I

Go on youtube look at speed test between LG G5 and iphone 6S hell even iphone 7. ITs on par with iphone 7 ( loose 50% of time win 50% of the time ) and easily beat iphone 6S in 90% of test. Go back to your cave.

"as most Android apps don't take advantage of multithreading, " Nonsense that was debunked over 6 years ago. Welcome to 2017. Here's a challenge, get a recent Android device with for example 8 cores and root access, plus full system control. Disable (see XDA for tools) 4 or even 7 cores. Notice a difference? Spoiler alert: huge difference, in speed and/or efficiency. Then come back and have the guts to repeat your claim.

All the processors are good enough these days. It comes down to software optimization and battery optimization more than anything.

Agreed, bruh. Flagship processors are powerful enough for me, already. All what matters to me now is efficiency and great battery life.

Here is what the haters keep missing. What we all should do is this. Lets take an iPhone and a Galaxy S7 Edge and in our mind swap the software. Based on the specs Android normally runs on, it means the iPhone hardware would work much harder to run it. That emans the iPhone would ALWAYS RUN NOT do to 2 cores vs 4 where the load can't be spread more. The chips working harder means even more battery drain on what is suppose to be a flagship, which had pathetic battery size. Now lets take IOS and drop it on the S7 edge hardware. Because IOS uses less power, it would run much cool. Because the Galaxy had a much larger battery, my guess would be iOS would run like 3.5~4 days on a single charge. (These are work days). Both platforms are designed to run what they have efficiently. But my crisscross suggestions actually shows which is better. The iPhone would die in less than 2 hours if it ran the exact same S7 edge software period. It is also safe to say, if you took the iPhone's battery out the iPhone and shoved it into a Galaxy S7 edge, the phone would die in less than 6 hours because the iPhone battery is small. But if Apple is planning to move to a bigger display? If the resolution is 1440p or higher. If Apple doesn't increase the battery to at least 2700MAH or higher, the device is gonna suck.

Why do you ALWAYS compare the iPhone to samsung phones? Especially when you say other times that since they run different OS's that they shouldn't even be compared. Oh wait I know, its so you can throw your 50 daily jabs at Apple and the iPhone, cause your a troll that hates anything Apple. Why not compare your precious samsung phones to other android based phones? Are you concerned that samsung might not come out on top?

In such a case some conclusions to your test would be: - iOS is far more resource friendly and therefore, better phone OS. - Apple hardware is underspec'd for the RRP compared to the S7 - S7 is better built for iOS than Android - iPhones would be terrible for Android That doesn't itself doesn't mean one is better than the other, just Apple overcharges.

Samsung please..., Put some funds together and create a kickass OS of your own. I have a vision of the Exynos OS in unison with the Exynos Processor.

yea, they call that Tinzen. Kinda flopped right out of existence. Though you can still find a device here or there with it if you look hard enough,.

79. kerginaldo17 unregistered

I agree with you.sammy could introduce Tyzen gradually in the west.Up to People get accustomed. Android It's good but very fragments.

Tizen. Actually Tizen runs right now on several Smasung phones, just only in certain markets. It also runs all the Samsung Gear devices and their Smart TV's. It is everywhere if you just know where to look and not just at phones. Some phones that run Tizen -http://www.tizenphones.com/

a new OS as no chance because of poor app support sorry windows mobile and BB10 os proven thats.

Like it really matters what this phone benchmarks. It will be riddled with framerate drops everywhere as all Samsung phones usually are.

75. kerginaldo17 unregistered

Now who was in doubt about buying an S7 or waiting for the S8 nowa I think doubts have diminished.

I'm not gonna make a decision until the phone comes out and get a feel myslef..... just like with the S6..... it wasn't enough to convince me to upgrade from my S5

89. TechieXP1969

Posts: 14967; Member since: Sep 25, 2013

Yeah...the S5 gets a lot of flack from Sammie haters. But even today it beats out many new phones. Still has the best display in its glass for an old phone. the 16MP sensor takes better pictures in sufficient light even over today's iPhone's an even the S7 in some cases.

I wish Samsung would go with a higher MP count on the camera..... I did like the S5 better in that regard.... especially if you wanted to zoom in on a picture

A11 is going to blow past this with ease..not really much of a CPU upgrade here in one year with the S835/new Exynos

100. omnitech

Posts: 1131; Member since: Sep 28, 2016

Well, it should considering it will be at least 6 months newer. 6 months is a long time in the technology world. That's why I wish Samsung would just follow a September or later release schedule so their flagship is not 6 months old when the iphone and pixel are released.

105. mikehunta727 unregistered

What I meant to say is that the S835/new Exynos are not a big leap in perf from last year's S820/Exynos, but the A11 will be a big leap from the A10 again because Apple is quite killer at SoC design Apple is seeing bigger gains y/oy vs others

this year android soc OEM are working on optimization and battery efficiency more than raw power. i am curious to see what battery life those new soc and optimization will bring to the table

118. mikehunta727 unregistered

You can have all 3 with improved SoC design and a better manufacturing node.No difference at all compared to years past in what they want to accomplish, it's always the target(more power efficient, optimization, better perf)

Well maybe in benchmark. Iphone 7 smash my LG G5 in cpu benchmark and lookhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lzGQRGyFxDM Not really faster in fact its about 50/50 on the speed for wich is faster. i think apple need to start optimizing its OS better.

139. mikehunta727 unregistered

Most of these tests are light workloads that don't really push either CPU and they trade blows here because UFS 2.0 and the storage in iPhone are similar in real world performance. But when you run heavy tests like what PhoneBuff does in their speed testing(converting videos to higher resolution, downscaling videos down, etc, editing and processing 4K videos, heavy stuff like that) the A10 blows past every SoC at the moment Heavy applications like Lapse it and etc, show a significant advantage for A10 Plus faster CPU now= more future proof for when apps continue to increase in size and functionality

"as most Android apps don't take advantage of multithreading" looks like you brain still stuck at 2009-2010.. programmer don't need to do ANYTHING to make their apps work on multi-hread.. the OS will do that job

138. mikehunta727 unregistered

Yeah this is just absolutely wrong. You would see similar core scaling and perf on all apps on Android then, but you don't at all. Please stop spewing such misinformed stuff Developers have to put in a ton of work for good multi core scaling and proper multi threading support for their apps

I hope Canadians get the Exynos model again. Unfortunately, the tab S3 is using an 820 instead of an Exynos so that's not a good sign.

I take the SD820 over the Exynos oven anyday. S7 with SD820 dont throttle like bitch and overheat like crazy...
