Elsewhere, the Exynos 8890 is expected to be be powering Sammy's new flagship smartphone. Packing Galaxy S units headed for the states with a Snapdragon chip has been the manufacturer's recent MO, except for a fluke this year. Because of the issue that the Snapdragon 810 chipset has with overheating, all Samsung Galaxy S6 units ended up with the Exynos 7420 SoC inside...

HTC One M9 is irrelevant here, because he meant DAC. BoomSound is speakers tech, DAC is internal sound tech, i mean, sound from the audio chip.

That's why I've always dreamed about the fact that they don't have quad front corner speakers I emailed them about that 2 years ago and their response from Samsung said they're not allowed to take ideas from customers

I never said anything about the speakers. I was talking about the quality of audio output on the headphone jack. It's excellent as well.

Geekbench is turning out to be POS like Antutu. It's cross-platform just in name. It provides huge importance to SHA2 offload, which is just stupid. At best you could use it to measure difference between SOC within the Android ARM architecture. There is little or no p0oint comparing it to Apple or x86 processors.

Benchmarks aren't as relevant as they used to be.

They're still as relevant now as they've ever been, they require a little knowledge and of course some common sense goes a long way.

Only way you can get a fair comparison is if you out iOS on a GS7 and Android 5.1.1 in an iPhone 6s and bench each phone running each OS. Since that is impossible unless Apple doesn't sue the person that ports it. We will never get a fair test. Benchmarks is the closest thing we got unfortunately. Android users understand this but the isheep never do. Lol

Not a bad idea to actually judge the performance. And last thing we need is another javascript benchmark.

I would love to see that done

Agreed!

Considering Exynos 7420 scores just over 5000 that's a very disappointing score.

Single core score is more important and that's where 820 shines.

124. Shocky unregistered

Nope. That's not been the case for years.

Single core is absolutely irrelevant with Android. Even the old Galaxy S2 hardly runs with a single core, even without heavy usage!

Not if its using much less power. The 7420 single core is nowhere near the 820. Also it's 8 core vs quad. 2 a72 and 2 a53 vs 4 a57 and 4 a53. I personally think it's pretty impressive

I don't believe that Samsung would risk the future of their mobile department with such mistake. They have done too many mistakes in the last few years and I personally can't believe that they would be so stupid to do more mistakes. No, let me put this way, I hope they aren't so stupid.

WTF are you talking about?

Sammy isn't stupid!
