Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 edge benchmarked (the Exynos variant)

Galaxy S7 last1The Samsung Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge splashed down at the MWC and while their cameras and screens are the biggest improvements, they come with brand new chipsets, which we promptly benchmarked.

We tested both the S7 and S7 edge and the difference in form factor didn’t make a difference in performance, so we united their scores.

Note that this is the Exynos 8890 chipset, which is built on a 14nm process and features a total of eight custom Samsung cores – four small and four big ones. They work in tandem with Mali-T880 GPU to deliver awesome performance.

AnTuTu 6 shows a sizeable jump in performance over the old guard, the S6 edge+.


Samsung broke away from the stock ARM Cortex cores, but comparing them to the Huawei Mate 8 (Kirin 950, 4x A72 + 4x A53) the two seem on par (we don’t have single-core scores for the Mate 8 though).


Then there’s the GPU. The Sony Xperia Z5 Premium has a Snapdragon 810 chipset, but it’s meant to feed its monstrous 4K display and it actually topped the Galaxy S7 in a few tests.
