Every year, Samsung launches two versions of its main phones: one with a Qualcomm processor and one with its own Exynos processor. This is again the case of the Galaxy S10, which comes equipped with the Snapdragon 855 in the United States, and the Exynos 9820 in several other regions of the world.
In recent years, the Exynos chipset has often outperformed Qualcomm's latest Snapdragon, but there were signs that Samsung's new processor might have difficulty equating to Qualcomm in 2019. As you can see, Snapdragon's impressive benchmark score of 855 really translated into reality. worldwide use, as PhoneBuff shows in a video with a speed test that puts the Snapdragon Galaxy S10 against the Galaxy S10 Exynos.
Like other speed-test videos, the self-proclaimed PhoneBuff causes both phones to open sixteen applications consecutively, while waiting for each of them to load before moving on to the next. Although most applications have been opened at almost the same speed on both phones, the Snapdragon S10 has never been slower than the Exynos S10. Whenever there was a discrepancy, the phone with the Snapdragon processor was overhead:
Again, due to benchmarks, this should not surprise anyone, but after falling behind in previous years, it's good to know that American Android fans are getting the "best" version of the phone this time around. That said, the phones are so ridiculously fast at this point, that the differences between top-of-the-line processors will be tiny (as demonstrated by the twelve-second gap above), but at least we know we're not losing this time.
