    Has anyone noticed better battery life with one browser vs the other ? Or any speed differences ?

    Adblockers mostly support samsung browser. I think.
    I too, try to disable as much as I can Google bloat.
    Stock browser is fast and reliable.

    I like the Samsung browser but it it does lag in one spot. Can anyone clarify if there's lag when you press the tabs button in landscape mode? Like if I have 2 tabs open in landscape mode and click (2) Tabs it's nowhere near instant. It works well in portrait mode but not landscape.

    The samsung browser is faster, and supports adblocks without any hassle. Been using the samsung browser and never looked back to chrome.

    I usually use chrome but gave the stock browser a go after seeing this. Particularly to see if there was an increase in battery life. So far i see no difference in battery life, speed etc and i will likely go back to using chrome as its better all round

    I use Chrome Beta. Convinced it hogs less battery... Maybe.

    My S7 Edge gets hot as hell when using Chrome. After the first minute of browsing I cannot even hold the device as it gets too discomfort to hold. When using Samsung's browser though it stays cool without even a slight warm up.
    The strange thing is this does not happen always and it started warming up a lot recently without any significant reason. I am still using Chrome however due to the fact that it syncs with my PC, also it is more convenient with opening and switching tabs than the Samsung's browser.

    Yeah - I just tried this and I get a bit of lag, even in portrait mode.

    I can't get away from Chrome, I use it on my PC / Laptop / Tablet and phone - I like how everything syncs together.

    I've used chrome for a long time and like the sync between devices. However after trying the Samsung browser with an ad blocker, I'm really impressed and so far have stuck with it. Only annoying thing is a find the default text size a bit small on the Samsung browser. I've read that an update is out that allows the text size to be adjusted but as yet I haven't received this

    If you sign into your Google account in the Samsung browser, does that sync with a desktop/laptop/tablet Chrome instance just like if Chrome were used on the mobile?

    Is there a way to import chrome bookmarks into the Samsung browser? I'd never used it before but tried it last night. Man, it just feels so much smoother than Chrome! The only thing keeping me from fully switching is the syncing between my phone and desktop...

    It's little things like this that drive me mad with phones. It's much better in portrait mode but landscape mode is literally like a full second.

    I'd like to know this as well. I'm not so concerned that they stay synced but I wish there was a way to import them. Having to manually add bookmarks is a major pain in the rear!

    Nope! I've heard about third party apps that will sync bookmarks, but really if thats the case then why not just use chrome.

    Obviously syncing isn't going to happen, but it would be nice if I could at least import the bookmarks I do have instead of having to go one by one.

    Yes there is an extension you can install in desktop chrome to synchronize bookmarks work the Samsung browser.

    I prefer the Samsung browser for speed but Chrome for tab and login syncing.

    I too disable almost all of Google's apps, but I kept Chrome and disabled Samsung's browser instead.
    Chrome is what I use on my Windows PCs and tablet so I like the convenience of having bookmarks synced.
