Samsung Galaxy S8 powered by the Exynos 8895 SoC, breaks the 7000 ceiling at Geekbench for multi-core score
The Samsung Galaxy S8 and Samsung Galaxy S8+ are considered among the top two Android handsets currently available. Each model has two different variants based on the chipset employed. In the U.S., the two flagship phones feature the Snapdragon 835 chipset carrying an octa-core CPU and the Adreno 540 GPU. Elsewhere, the home grown Exynos 8895 SoC is under the hood, carrying an octa-core CPU and the Mali-G71 MP20 GPU.

Today, the Exynos 8895 SoC powered Galaxy S8 was put through the Geekbench benchmark test, and the multi-core score of 7101 was one of the highest results ever seen on a smartphone. The single-core score, at 2121, was nowhere near a record for that test.

The Exynos 8895 chipset is made using the 10nm FinFET process, which means that it is a boss when it comes to performance and power consumption. Because the beauty of a smartphone design is in the eye of the beholder, there is no way to objectively score how one smartphone looks compared to another. But certain aspects of performance can be measured, which is where benchmark tests come into play.

Happened to me the other day. On the PC it said I was banned, but on my phone I could post. Just logged out, closed the PC browser, then reopened and logged in an no ban. I think it's just a glitch.

Actually, it happened again just now when I tried to post this. Closed the browser, and reopened, and I can post. Their system is glitching out.

Also, I see my reply wasn't posted under the correct comment. This was a reply to comment #15. Come on PA, get this stuff fixed. The comment order has been messed up for a while.

PhoneArena's comment system is outdated, and it seems that no one keeps a check on it.

Anyways, your points could be valid and it could be a glitch. Which I hope it was. Because that ban really confused me, especially when it occurred the second time within a few hours of getting unbanned.

This was done by a phone running a rom and custom kernel. It's posted on the S8+ forums on xda in jeeses kernel thread.

Happened with me too, yesterday only. I got banned yesterday, got unbanned after a few hours, and then banned again after some hours. Wrote a message to PhoneArena showing my disappointment in the problematic ban system. Thankfully, I got unbanned today.

But am waiting to see if they ban me a third time for no reason at all.

I have a feeling it's something to do with Adblock, I tried posting on my phone which has quite strict Adblock settings and couldn't post whereas I can post on my desktop fine.

Now that makes sense. I too was banned yesterday. But after a few hours I could comment just fine. If its not one of PA's trick, then maybe another bug in their system. Comment misplacement alone was quite annoying. Now this.

Seems like many people faced this problem yesterday. Maybe someone needs to send a message to their email ID. However, I fear it won't work, since they never seem to reply to any emails whatsoever.

I don't have adblock on any of my devices.

I had to uninstall adblocker and reinstall it and now I can post.
I have sent 2 or 3 emails to PA with no response.

I send them an email, they said they had an issues with the system flagging multiple users. It is now fixed it seems as I have no issues logging anymore. I guess they couldn't reply to everybody...

I think this is the only phone in the world does that. The thing is Android benchmarks are not as consistent as iPhone. If this phone was tested again It might give a multi core score of just 6500.

Consistent? If you consider the iPhone 7 that has results dropping by 50% in several cases ( https://goo.gl/kqcSWa ) as "consistent", then by your dingbat logic, this is just as "consistent" if not better ( https://goo.gl/e89LKA )...

Yep, its called the silicon lottery
There's variations in ALL products from the silicon fabbing

And on the Android side of things there's variations from apps running in the background, custom kernels, ROMs, and other mods

iPhone 7 geekbench scores drop by 50% when you switch on low power mode. Everything else is down to software version, thermals and slight variations in CPU.

You mean benchmarks are 50% lower in low power mode?

Nice try though.

Nice, even more reasons to never buy a Samsung device without Exynos chipset...patiently waiting for the Note 8.

I own a SD835 model, and it's smoking fast, smooth, and has yet to show any lag whatsoever since delivery date of 4-20. This is the best performing device I've owned to date, 7 Plus included. The performance+battery life+features=tops.

With the 835 being as good as it is, I can just imagine the Exynos version...damn!

According to Andrei Frumusanu the 835 is better in terms of efficiency, which IMO is more important these days

Qualcomm and Samsung did a helluva job with optimization bro. You know I have no brand loyalty, and pull no punches. When I say it's the best device I've owned to date, I really mean it. It's shown zero signs of slowdowns, lag, battery drain, and has yet to freeze or crash.

I've never owned a device that's been 100% problem free through the first 3 weeks. I highly recommend it.

The Exynos still lasts about 10% longer though, but the difference is much smaller than last year.
