The last 11 out of 16 articles about the S8. Sales must not be too good if Sammy needs to buy articles/ads.

No to mention Exynos version should have better DAC as well (dedicated Wolfson).

The most notiable difference I find is that- in Exynos version battery optimization is better as compared to sd one.This year surely Exynos version is better than sd one.

The S8+ has better heat dissipation than the smaller S8 and has also a bigger battery, so Samsung might have set it slightly more to performance than to battery saving.
