    That's actually pretty damn good. An extremely peppy and capable processor.

    BTW OP, I noticed that your screenshots tend to be tilted.
    It's a Tapatalk beta bug lol (the tilted shots)

    Ah, understood.

    I'm really tempted by the S7 Edge, but my current phone is still working fine, and I'm also holding out for the Note 6 because I'm actually quite a fan of the S Pen.

    I'll switch to either the S7e or Note 6 if my phone dies prematurely.

    (It's an LG G4. On my second unit since the first died to the bootloop issue after 6 months in service)

    Thanks so much. Those samples look great! How was the focus speed with the S7 vs S6 in those scenes?

    Yeah, I'd love to see those Geekbench scores, cheers

    Thanks doesn't look too bad. What's your thoughts in comparison to other phones you've had?

    Before the S6/edge, I was used to the double tap and was a deal breaker sometimes until I realized that it took me more time to do the double tap and without security than simply use the Fingerprint and the extra security it brings.

    With the Fingerprint you can do the equivalent (more or less) to the double tap, just press the home button and simply leaves your finger on it for a fraction of a second and you're in.
    I understand what you mean. However, I rather use double-tap than the fingerprint. Specially since the only place where I think it's logic for them to be is on the side of the phone. And on Samsung's they're in the worst of places as far as I'm concerned (near the bottom of the phone is clearly asking for me to drop the phone mid-way).
    Not to mention I've been using double-tap since Nokia came up with it and it's now an automatized gesture for me.

    Haven't noticed any overheating or anything like that. Although haven't played any games.

    One thing is that the Exynos version actually seems not use the liquid cooling system (Read this from somewhere)
    Actually, you are probably right inffy. Like you, I seem to remember something about the quad core, Qualcomm chip..

    Awesome! >2000 single core score was all I wanted to see! And >6000 multi core is fantastic! Thanks for posting!

    And this is all on pre-release software too. Official release isn't until 8th March so there could be improvements later down the road

    Now the question is how does this compare to the Snapdragon 820?

    Really? I'd hope that both versions have liquid cooling. Even if Exynos doesn't actually require it to have a good experience, more cooling is never a bad thing and would allow it to perform even better. Surely if the Snapdragon one had liquid cooling and Exynos didn't there'd be a difference in weight between regions but as far as I know the weight is the same in both regions according to official specification sheet?

    Which is meant to be better anyway? I'm in the UK so will be getting the Exynos so hoping it will be at least equivalent to the Qualcomm.

    Now wait a minute, do those screenshots of the battery life mean that the battery dropped by 35% in only 1h45 on screen time??

    So the 100% would only make you through 5h15 on screen time...

    This is not that good for 3600mAh!

    Leaked Geekbench results on pre-release hardware suggested that Snapdragon 820 is slightly faster at single-core tasks while the Exynos 8890 is faster at multi-core tasks. It'll be interesting to see if that holds true for the final retail versions of both versions of the S7s. We need someone with the US S7/S7 edge to run Geekbench to compare!

    5 hrs of SoT is pretty good considering your first few days of usage will be more intense on the phone than normal.

    Thanks for the info. How will this affect everyday use? I'm not that techie so don't really understand the difference.

    I never see more than 3 hours of SOT on MY Droid Turbo 2 which has the same size battery. I for the life of me can't figure out how Motorola achieves such a low number. And I have my screen at less than 50% brightness.

    Plus, take in consideration that he has mentioned before that he has very bad signal and he is waiting to get to his work for a normal day comparison. Take a look at the Signal, he is at 3G not even 4G (or LTE like it's known on the Americas) that it was also considered to be more trouble for the phones than the 4G.

    Some things in Android are really optimised for multi-core CPUs like app installations/updates from the Play Store and web browsing. Certain apps are more dependant on single-core performance though (I'm not sure of specific examples).
