Exynos-powered Samsung Galaxy S10+ pops up on AnTuTu, scores an excellent benchmark result

Exynos-powered Samsung Galaxy S10+ pops up on AnTuTu, scores an excellent benchmark result
Leak after leak, we are inching closer to the wildly-anticipated release of the Galaxy S10 series early next year, and from what we've gathered so far, Samsung fans would be in for a big treat. Not that we are complaining - the rumor mill is proving to be very industrious, giving us a very complete picture of what the S10, S10+, and possibly S10 Lite would be like.

It seems that a possible benchmark listing of an Exynos-powered Samsung Galaxy S10+ has been ousted by popular Samsung leakster @IceUniverse, revealing nothing short of impressive performance. Rolling by the SM-G975F model number, which largely corresponds with what we expect the S10+ to carry, the device attains the mind-boggling score of 325,076 points in AnTuTu, one of the most popular benchmarking tools out there. 

That's a bit short of the iPhone XS' record of 358,091 and pretty far away from the new iPad's obliterating score of 566,363 points, but is still ahead of all Android devices so far. In fact, AnTuTu's Android-specific chart puts the Huawei Mate 20 Pro at the top with 309,628 points. 



The benchmark tells us that the tested device was running on the Samsung Exynos 9820 chip, carried 6GB of RAM, and was tested at the resolution setting of 2280 by 1080 pixels, which has been the default one for Samsung's flagships for a while now. The Mali-G76 GPU was on board, with the whole shebang running Android 9 Pie. Overall, a pretty credible feature set.

Nevertheless, the benchmark listing suggest that the Exynos version of the Galaxy S10+ would be a true powerhouse. However, the Snapdragon-powered variant of Samsung's next flagship could prove even faster, because a previously-leaked benchmark of Qualcomm's upcoming Snapdragon 855/8150 platform scored 362 ,292 on AnTuTu. Given that it would most certainly make it into the US-bound version of the Galaxy S10 lineup, suggesting that Samsung might have some catching up to do on its chipset part. 

As usual, don't take this alleged new benchmark that serious, as it could have been doctored to falsely portray misleading information, so take it with a grain of salt.

Quite powerful. However, I don't trust Antutu. Scores of even same phones are sometimes way different and some comparisons show different results than what we get from most other benchmarks (Like A11 scoring 50000-70000 points lower than 845, which is weird. A11 GPU is not this much weaker than Adreno 630, and CPU is much more powerful). That said, I expect 9820 to have more powerful CPU than what Antutu is suggesting.

Exynos was disappointing last year. It will likely be disappointing this year. Read Anandtech analysis of SOC's to come in 2019 and expectations as per claims from manufacturers. Exynos will just be a marginal improvement. Similarly Kirin is all hype and substandard performance in reality(compared to competition). It is Qualcomm that has been rocking the game in Android world lately. Apple has huge advantage in CPU. But now a days phone's operations are getting more and more graphics intensive and that is where Snapdragon's Adreno GPU is the King of all! And that is why Antutu shows real measure of performance by giving more importance to Graphics.

Antutu has had a bug where it will just score a 0 on iOS devices for a graphics benchmark. This was worth ~55k points on the A11. The A11 scores about 255k on Antutu and the 845 scored around 270k. The other issue is that Antutu uses a depreciated version of OpenGL on iOS instead of using the Metal API which would be more representative of actual GPU performance, changing that alone could boost the GPU score by 10%.

I've mostly seen A11 score around 220000 and 845 score around 270000. See? There isa lotof disparity between scores, which is unacceptable on a benchmark.

220k is incorrect. I tested my iPhone X many times and never scored lower than 250k.

As I already said, that's the problem. Scores are inconsistent. http://www.antutu.com/en/doc/111830.htm This inconsistency makes me lose trust in Antutu.

(Like A11 scoring 50000-70000 points lower than 845, which is weird. A11 GPU is not this much weaker than Adreno 630, and CPU is much more powerful). Not really, in my humble opinion. From what I've understand; Antutu isn't purely a hardware test, it also brings OS optimization in the equation hence The BIG difference you're witnessing is due to the poor optimization of The iOS; compared to Android. If Antutu scores reflect real world performance than my iPhone 7 (~170k) should be at least TWICE as fast as my old Exynos Samsung S6 (~65k) and yet... Well, it's not! It's definitely faster, but nowhere near 2 times faster! Real world performance and benchmark performance are two different animals, little one. G'Day!

If optimization was the case then iPhone X would score much higher with iOS 12. But it doesn't. Which means you are likely wrong. Anda source for your statements please? I would like to know who said optimization is a key aspect of Antutu's testing. And if that is the case, then Antutu is a joke because these tests are supposed to measure processor performance, not software optimization.

It's only nerds that want these synthetic benchmarks, they show nothing of daily usage, just what the phone COULD do, there are no apps that even utilise this kind of power so what's the point, I have mate 20 pro and note 9, and while the Huawei does feel a bit faster, it still takes me longer to do tasks on because of the clunky overloaded menu system, I will probably get the S10+ 5g version, but I wish manufacturers would focus on something else other then these scores, streamlining the menu systems and more focus on camera tech, and battery improvements are always welcome

You know nothing if you think no app takes advantage of this power. There are just few, but they do exist. Besides, it's just future-resisting (not proofing), so what are you angry about? And be benchmarks are more real-life than speed tests. I just realised this a few days ago. Go watch gary explains from Youtube.

Gary explains basically blame other hardware parts for the lower performance, since these devices are not computer where you can change parts that's nonsense, if you can't have that performance on that device be it for whatever part being involved (cause the device can't work without the memory or the storage, etc,they will always work together) it will never do.

Still behind apple Xs and way behind with ipad pro. No thanks!

7. AmashAziz

Posts: 2869; Member since: Jun 30, 2014

Well the iPad Pro is a tablet, and has a higher thermal capacity for a more powerful chip, which also sucks in more power. That's why it scores more.

You will buy a phone for it's score? This chip will have similar scores to the a12, not behind at all.

13. AmashAziz

Posts: 2869; Member since: Jun 30, 2014

It will be slightly behind in CPU and quite behind in GPU. As per rumors and Gary explains on Youtube. Plus, it's built on a slightly worse 8nm node and has slower A75 cores for medium cluster. Not that this matters much, but I'm just saying. And we have yet to see if it's NPU will be as good as Apple's and Qualcomm's.

Still is in the same respectable range of scores. You have to really wait to it releases.

The Android version of Antutu OpenGL 3.1 whereas the iOS version uses 3.0 I believe. Also just having more RAM can add 10k to your score but real world performance increases are negligible. Antutu just isn’t a good test, look at real world performance in games and Android phones tend to skip frames and stutter, lots of comparisons have displayed this issue in games like fortnite and asphalt 9.

17. alaw.14

All phones tend to skip frames and stutter including iphones. Even pcs, but I get you mean they stutter more occasionally in games which depends more on the optimization of the game.

iPhones just as much drop frames with Fortnite and Asphalt 9. They also throttle much quicker. GPU performance of iPhones isn't really much, if at all, ahead of what Qualcomm's Adreno offers. If anything the Adreno has way better sustained performance compared to Apple's GPU. You can complain all you want about the OpenGL versions too, but using OpenGL vs Metal there's barely a 10% performance increase. By using OpenGL on both platforms allows for a better comparison between the two OS. But you are right, Antutu isn't a great benchmark. It doesn't take into consideration that iOS tries to offload apps to the weaker cores as quickly as possible after loading with the super cores to reduce battery drain and damage and reduced performance after that point. It doesn't test sustained performance, it doesn't test real life performance, it test GPU performance using inferior drivers. The same goes for Geekbench really, well most benchmarks really. They're for testing theoretical performance, not actual real life performance. So let's just agree they all suck and stop throwing them around trying to prove any kind of point because they're unreliable.

30. alaw.14

Yes, I definitely agree. Phones with adreno tend to have the best sustained performance. The adreno 630 still trades blows with the a12's gpu. Apple needs to find a way to fit a heat pipe in their phones because it only takes a few minutes before it starts to throttle.

Looool, a typical apple fanboy. Since there are no features on any iphone, they're all mostly Impressed by numbers only...

Considering Apple is incapable of putting the more powerful tablet SOC in a phone I don't know why you mention it in an article about phone SOCs.

When a Pocophone beats an XS in a speed test benchmarks mean zero to me.

Go watch Gary explains on Youtube. He completely changed my mindset on benchmarks. I used to think the same as you before I watched his video, "Why speed tests are flawed". He brilliantly cleared out myths and replaced them with facts. First watch his video, then you'll understand how benchmarks are more real-life than speed tests.

And like with the kirin 980 we will see again a very good cpu and a poor Mali gpu compared not with the new adreno on the 855 or whatever name, but compared with last year adreno 630. No s10 for me cause I'm from Europe and with Exynos you're paying flagship price for midrange specs.

27. AmashAziz

Posts: 2869; Member since: Jun 30, 2014

These specs are not midrange you illiterate guy! And you can still import a Snapdragon variant of the S10.... wherever you live. And are samsung phones not available in the whole of europe?? Do you even know Europe is not a city???
