It’s the post-release era for the first round of phones from the Galaxy S7 generation and we’re now looking at more benchmarks for differently-equipped variants of the devices. Yep, we’re talking about differences in performance.

Some of the Galaxy S7 and S7 edges received the Snapdragon 820 (some of them manufactured by Samsung itself) while others get the Exynos 8890. Qualcomm decided to go quad-core with a new 14nm process and Kyro architecture for the new Snapdragon while Samsung kept the Exynos on eight cores like it did last year.

A couple of outlets have been able to acquire Galaxy phones with both processors inside them and have been doing side-by-side benchmark comparisons with them. For reference, the Exynos versions will be on the left device in these videos and have the letter “F” or “S” attached to each model’s name. Also, beyond size and build differences, the internals between the S7 and S7 edge remain the same.

App and games loading get outdone by the Exynos in these two tests, but not necessarily by a whole lot. When it comes to actual benchmarks though, the two seem pretty much neck and neck — the Snapdragon actually led in a GeekBench single-core score.

In other words, we shouldn’t have much to worry about with this sliced-up silicon silliness. Samsung would have no business making one variant beat up on the other.
