because it's boring.. the one leaked is SD835 version and it can't even beat kirin 960... exynos FTW!!

Yeah... Exynos model Galaxy devices have always been noticeably better in performance and also power efficiency vs their Snapdragon counterpart...better optimization, they are able to work with the microcode of the SoC they made better compared to SD counterpart S835 should be really good though still, UFS 2.1, better LTE modem, better power efficiency vs S821, etc. Exynos 8895 will most likely be better though and run better

Definitely Exynos Ftw, over Slowdragon. But the X30 is on par with the Exynos. Specially those A73 A72.

Good, I like how Sony take care of developing current smartphones line with new features & nice fast system updates. Wish Samsung learn from Sony. Samsung send updates to destroy the performance of current flagships to push people to go for the new flagship, where Nougat update for Galaxy S7/7 Edge reduced battery life !! So guys stop trolling here about Samsung & ignoring the real subject, Sony fast & reliable updates.

Absolutely true, made my S7 leggy and 20% battery. FPOS Crapdung. I had to root and revert back to the first original Rom. Don't need no SHTY Nougat. Know the phone lasts all-day and though the phone becomes really hot never bothers me. Because in return I'm getting snappy fast performance.
