Samsung Galaxy S7 Exynos 8890 edition benchmark tests are out: scores below LG G5 with Snapdragon 820

The Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge will feature the Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 system chip in the United States, but the international version of the phone will actually be powered by Samsung's own Exynos 8890 SoC.
It was exactly the Galaxy S7 with Exynos 8890 that was up for display at Mobile World Congress 2016, and we took the time to run a few benchmark tests and measure the capabilities of the new chip.
The Exynos 8890 is built on the 14nm manufacturing process and it's an octa core chip packing four high-performance cores clocked at up to 2.3GHz and four battery-savvy cores running at up to 1.5GHz.
Here is how this comes together in benchmarks:
- Display 5.1" 1440 x 2560 pixels
- Camera 12 MP / 5 MP front
- Processor Qualcomm Snapdragon 820, Quad-core, 2200 MHz
- Storage 32 GB + microSDXC
- Battery 3000 mAh(28h 3G talk time)

Cpus have comparable performance on both variants. It's the gpu where it hurts the most. Pay 800euros for much inferior chipset. Isheep b*tched when there was 2-3% of difference between two variants. Andreno will he easily 30% faster than mali. Sammy's offering inferior hardware for Europeans for more cash than the superior US version. This is why I'm pissed. They should've restricted exynos to the Asian market or at least lower its price since it's greatly inferior. I'm not getting s7 if andreno proves to be much better. G5 will be probably a lot cheaper than the s7, yet it offers sd820. Sammy fooked up hard with this one.

First GFXBench SD820 results are actually a tad slower than these for the same resolution. Both well ahead of the 6s/6s Plus for the same resolution (and Samsung gives you a choice for output resolution too..)

here r the benchmarks comparing Z5 and mate8 to it, the custom samsung cores doesn't seem so custom to me, they have the exact same performance as the A72 cores, and the gfx scores are a tad bit lower than Z5 premium (810) arked_the_exynos_flavor-news-16794.php

Only because the SD810 throttled :) At full speed whitout throttle the SD810 would have killed the Exynos 7420 in all departement. This is fixed by funny to say using samsung 14 nm process and custom core from qualcomm. I am glad Qualcomm shown thats they are the leader again!

I like how PA's scores are completely different from other sites lmao. I've been seeing 130,000+ on tests.

LG G5 is the best phone of 2016. Samsung is DEAD, and has been since they've been copying Apple.

While Samsunsung is definitely NOT dead, sales DO NOT determine which smartphone is the best. By that logic, the iPhone is the best phone EVER. "The best" is what's determined by what's best for the individuals wants and needs. There really is no "best", just what's best for YOU.

Agreed. If you want a flagship for gaming the G5 is for you. If you want great lowlight picture the S7 is for you. There is space for everyone. But this year Samsung is not the king for performance and thats a reality.
