Review 78: 05.02.2021 at 00:00 am
Guys🔥, bring your coffee now, noooooow, 🤪 In this review, we’ll discuss the results of the tests. These tests took a lot of time to do.
We’ve tested the main aspects of both CPUs. And we’ve done it based on your questions. In this review guys, I’ll talk about the CPUs’ capabilities. We’ve done the tests using the main benchmark tests available for these devices. I’ll also discuss video and photo editing processing.
Which one was better in these tasks?
I’ll also discuss the charging duration and heat caused by it. I’ll also discuss the battery capabilities, charging speed from 0% to 100%.
We all know that AI interferes with the battery after 2 to 3 weeks of usage. This way, it’ll provide the best battery performance and long lasting battery based on the usage. It’s its job.
The Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 version has only been with us for 1 week. But I’ll discuss this topic later in the News article, to let you know whether the battery performance has improved or not.
Anyway, the battery performance in both version is very good. I think it is the best battery performance in any premium device with a 5000mAh battery.
Let me start with the details: 😍
This task is very costly and takes a lot of time to do. It also takes a lot of effort. For that, I’d appreciate it if you …just visit always us and love us Lol.💖😍
Also, share this review with anyone who thinks that the Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 version is better. And as usual, all the information in this review is 100% honest.
This year, both versions are nearly identical. Both are build on 5nm architecture. Samsung ditched their own cores and instead used the ARM Cortex cores. The main core in it is the Cortex X1. In the SD version it reaches up to 2.85GHz.
While in the Exynos 2100 version it is 2.9GHz. It is clear that Samsung knows the difference and tries to solve the problem. There are also another 3 Cortex A78 cores.
The mission of these cores is daily tasks. In the SD version its frequency is 2.4GHz. While the Exynos 2100 version, it is 2.8GHz. Even the Cortex A55 cores, which main task is in the background, the frequency of the SD is 1.8GHz. While in the Exynos 2100, it is 2.2GHz.
Numbers prove that the Exynos 2100 version is supposed to be better in daily tasks, and background tasks. But there are also GPU tasks.
And as usual, the Exynos 2100 has a weak point in it. This year, the Exynos 2100 version comes with the ARM Mali-G78 MP14 GPU. The SD888 version comes with the Adreno 660 GPU.
Samsung said that starting from next year, they will use AMD’s GPUs to solve this problem. But for now, let’s focus on what we have. Let’s start. We did 3 tests for each CPU.
Each CPU got its chance. I’ll compare the results of these 3 tests.
In In Geekbench 5, the SD888 version alway won in the single core. But in the Multi-core tests, the Exynos 2100 version won in the three tests. In 3D Mark Wide Live test, which is test for the GPU and makes the device gives the best it could offer in general, The best results were in favor of the Exynos 2100 CPU.
This has continued all over and the Exynos 2100 CPU offered the best GPU performance. If you consider what I’ve said before about Samsung ditching their own cores, this would make a lot of sense.
The duration of these tests is one minute, but there’s a another test that lasts for 20 minutes and it exhausts the CPUs. We’ve done this test three times for each CPU. Each time, the CPU would be exhausted for 20 minutes. And I am here talking about the Wild Life Stress test.
We noticed that the results of these tests are higher than the results of the rest of the tests. I am not sure if exhausting the CPUs affected the performance or not. But the battery was fully charged.
Despite that, the Exynos 2100 CPU was better. We didn’t do the PCMark test. Because this platform needs an update that hasn’t come yet.
So, we decided not to do it so that we wouldn’t be unfair to any of the CPUs. But we’ll do these tests later and let you know about the results in the upcoming News page.
For now, I’ll discuss the PCMark battery test:
This test exhausts the battery from 80% down to 20%. It is done without any harm to the battery or the device itself.
We’ve started the tests while batteries were 85%. We did this test one time because it takes a long of time, and I’ll show you the results. The results were as follow: The first time we did this test, the battery lasted for 8 hours.
The Exynos 2100 version was 10 minutes less than the SD888 version. It is not a significant change. But we’ve noticed that the temperature was stable all time the test was being carried out.
We noticed something strange, though. The performance of the CPU dropped at some point. We also noticed that in video processing the SD88 version was better. But in photo processing, the Exynos 2100 was way better. There’s something different about them. In data manipulation, the SD88 version was better.
In this test, data will be moved and manipulated to stress the CPU.
The SD888 version scored 10600 points, while the Exynos 2100 version scored 10,000+ points. Both devices scored more than 10,000 points. The 600 point difference isn’t huge.
For me, I don’t see it a big difference, but this is the language of numbers.
We ran the test again, and the SD888 version was able to provide 11 hours of usage. The Exynos 2100 version was able to provide 10 hours.
The same thing continued, where the SD888 was, In write speed, both are identical. In web surfing, both are identical. In system stress, both were identical.
Here, we know that with the investment you pay for this device, you’ll 100% get high performance. But in video editing, the SD888 was better.
Updates makes a lot of difference, though. When we unboxed the SD888 version and ran the tests, the performance was horrible. But then, we got an update and did the tests again.
After the update, the performance was slightly better. The second day, the Exynos 2100 version got an update, too.
Keeping your device update is essential. That’s why we’ll continue doing these tests. But also, considering the results we’ve got in this review, We didn’t notice any difference in photos or videos taken on both of these devices. And here, I am talking about taking photos and videos, not editing them.
There is, however, some slight changes in black and white contrast. But it is normal. If you take the photo again, there will be slight changes, too.
You can also edit the changes after you take the photo. To sum it up, there’s not significant change in recordin videos and taking photos on both devices. 5G test speed will not be 100% accurate, since there needs to be support from the carrier and ISP.
Thus, we’ll not do this test. But I’ll try to adjust the settings and do the test, and hopefully it will work this time.
Let me now discuss the temperature of the device while using it:
More than one confirmed that the SD888 version generate more heat than the Exynos 2100. But will this be fixed with future updates? No idea.
The Exynos 2100 version, however, provide excellent performance. If there’s a problem with the temperature of any device, and we’ve seen that before with smartphone device, companies will do two things: enhance the CPU and lower the charging speeds.
This happened with both devices. The maximum charging speed now on both devices is 25W. In the previous version, the maximum charging speed was 45W, but now, it is 25W. We’ve used 25W chargers from Samsung.
The CPU is now even more developed, since it is based on the 5nm architecture, which means better battery consumption.
Imagine you have a Ferrari car with a massive engine but uses less fuel. In this case, Samsung did the same. And now, there’s a difference between them in generating heat.
Apps have a major role, too. When using an app that uses videos, the GPU will interfere, meaning that the heat will increase.
This happens with when live broadcasting. Heat will also generate when using filters. But when watching content on Youtube of Netflix, there will not be heat.
Why? Because the GPU won’t be involved. These apps only play videos, where the CPU and screens are the only parts needed.
The GPU will not intervene. But enable the translations and check what happens.
Let me now discuss charging:
The batteries were 0%. We started charging them. And we used the 25W chargers. The SD888 version fully charged in one hour and 8 minutes. The Exynos 2100 version fully charged in one hour and 15 minutes.
There’s 7 minutes difference. It was just 7 minutes. This means that both CPUs are nearly identical.
Rather, the Exynos version is way better than last year’s. Both the SD888 and Exynos 2100 are nearly identical now. But I should do more tests.
Let me know what tests should I carry out in the upcoming review, I want to show more differences between them. Both devices offer nearly the same experience in photography and stress tests.
The battery performance was also very similar. Has Samsung actually fixed the problems of last year’s version?
Or they’re not yet able to excel Qualcomm?
For me, I think they’re nearly identical. I think both versions are very similar more than anytime. No CPU is better than the other. But, in two months from now, we’ll see which one is actually better than the other.
I hope you enjoyed this comparison. With time, we’ll find more about these devices. I thought to do this comparison with the S series than to do it with the Note series. Because the S series is released at the beginning of the year.
See you my friends on the next reviews soon…⏳😈
