    I think that the snapdragon 820 will perform well if overheating and throttling isn't an issue. We all know this was an issue with 810.

    In normal usage nobody will notice the difference.

    Maybe later the year we have games that will perform better on the snapdragon version.

    But in normal usage the exynos will be better with heavy apps and multitasking but the differences are really not noticed in normal usage

    according to some early feedback here in the forum, it still is an issue - the 820 gets very hot in the S7 series and throttling may need to lag and choppy scrolling.

    I've been reading everything I can on the S7 Edge, and the worst I've heard is that it got hot when it was doing initial setup. Where did you read that heat and throttling was an issue?

    Ok so I am going to weigh in a little bit on snapdragon 820 since i got my S7 edge with tmobile. Yes, initially setting it up, it got warm (not hot) and it stayed that way for about an hour and then things started settling down. Almost any phone, when you are setting up initially will have stutters and hiccups including mighty iphone and S7. So once eveything got transferred, S7 edge was the smoothest android phone to date and i would even say it was as smooth as iphone 6S plus and more. I come from Note 5, iphone 6s Plus, S6 edge +, S6 edge, iphone 6S, S6, Lg G4, G3, and all iphones in the past so i can compare equally. I dont like to BS one brand over the other, they all have pros and cons. My geekbench was 2378 single core and 5580 multicore. I dont care about benchmarks. I would say S7 runs buttery smooth for almost everything. I have seen very small stutters on certain webpage scrolling but i have also seen that on iphone 6s plus. Camera is a killer on this phone. I was expecting sound to be better or the same as V10 but its only better than note 5. I have 200GB microsd card placed in right now, you can modify adbshell and do the adaptable memory but i have not done it. The phone feels very solid in hand but a little slippery though curved back helps. I am rocking this beauty naked. If you have any questions, you can always ask me.

    ^Thank you. Every year come Samsung flagship time it's like people can't wait to start widespread negativity/problems. It's been less than a week. Give people time to break in their phones.

    Thanks! Can you share a bit more on the audio comparison between the Note 5? That's the phone I'll be coming from. Volume, clarity, etc.

    Also, how's the size difference and handling compared to the Note 5?

    Finally, how's the scrolling compared to Note 5?

    Thanks so much!

    Volume is almost the same as note 5 but clarity is better also bluetooth sound is better too. I actually like holding S7 edge a lot better than note 5. Its a bit smaller than note 5 and a lot curvier. Scrolling is def. much better than note 5. I felt good amount of stuttering on note 5 with browsing and S7's new browser blows it away. Scrolling in general is improved a lot in other apps too. You will like S7 edge.

    Exynos has 8 cores, S820 has 4. Keep that in mind. MOST things you're going to do are going to favor IPC, so single core performance is still more important. Multi-core performance will matter when you are actively using an app that is both resource intensive and can spawn multiple threads.

    I look forward to seeing some in depth comparison articles, like what Anandtech does.

    Note 5.
    Dear friend, I am really curious to find out, how is Web loading speed of S7 SD820 4x Cores vs Note 5 EX7420 8x Cores! Can you check them both of them and tell me your opinion? Thank you!

    Saw this YouTube review of the new Galaxy with some benchmarking and a game comparison. Guy was really impressed with the smoothness.

    Any battery life stats?? Would love to see both devices running the same video/app/movie the same amount of time and see the battery usage after 1-2hrs.

    You're absolutely right! Phones usually experience the heaviest amounts of usage during the initial setup process, when apps are being downloaded and data is being restored from another phone. It's not uncommon for phones to be a little slow and warm during that. It's normal. Heck, my iPad Pro was the same when it was doing that, along with my LG G4.

    Exynos has 8 cores, S820 has 4. Keep that in mind. MOST things you're going to do are going to favor IPC, so single core performance is still more important. Multi-core performance will matter when you are actively using an app that is both resource intensive and can spawn multiple threads.

    Technically, the Exynos is a 4 + 4 and the 820 is a 2 + 2, but I get what you're saying.

    Pretty sure that the 820 may get a pretty slight advantage in most apps, but the 8890 may pull ahead in multithreaded workloads.

    But honestly, our phones have become so powerful to the point where any increase in processor performance isn't that noticeable compared to the jump from single-core processors in 2010 to quad-core processors in 2012. So the focus is on software optimization, efficiency and single-core performance.

    Anandtech did a very good article on the subject last year:

    http://www.anandtech.com/show/9518/t...ount-debate/18

    They concluded that multi-core performance is very important for the web browsing experience as well as the speed of app installations/updates. Android is surprisingly multi-threaded these days.

    Yep. Android is pretty focused on multithreading.

    But I still maintain that single core performance is still the way to go now. 8 cores are already more than enough.

    I agree. The foreground app still needs all the IPC it can get in most cases.
