    I was wondering what is the rationale for the Galaxy series having 2 processors? Apart from the S6, this has been going on for a while. Surely I thought it would be more cost effective to just buy and supply one processor like all the other manufacturers do. This is one of the reasons I am not buying the S7. I really would have liked the Snapdragon 820 with the latest Qualcomm quick charge 3.0. Does anyone know why Samsung persists with this?

    Also, I have done some research on 8 core vs 4 core processors. And all the sites say the same thing. 8 core is nonsense and is of no value as the majority of Andorid apps are designed to utilise actually 1 or 2 cores only. Even Qualcomm went from 8 cores in their 810 processor to back to 4 in their latest 820.

    You wouldn't miss out on much. The 820 doesn't have fast charging 3.0, it's still 2.0

    This articles explains it. The company is using the two chips largely because they have different integrated modems. The chips are tied to cellular technology and spectrum use in different countries. Based on Carrier and Region requirements.

    The note 5 also was Exynos throughout the world.

    Since you mentioned the 810, that chip doesn't have an integrated baseband processor. One of the few snapdragon processors not to have one. The s800, 801, 805,and 820 all had integrated baseband processors

    Samsung rejected the 810 due to the overheating problems with early versions. Phones that would have used that chip got the Exynos instead.

    My turbo 2 which came out pretty late in the s810 cycle had serious throttling issues under consistent load.

    That's odd. This is an old thread but I want answers. I have a Galaxy Note 5
    SAMSUNG-SM-N920V on Verizon and it is listed as a phone with a snapdragon. I'm more into PC hardware and android software so can you give me a reason to why Verizon purchased models with lesser CPUs? My phone is still fast and in good condition (other than the completely busted camera) but I just want to know why.

    Are you sure about that? As far as I know all the Galaxy Note 5s had the Exynos 7420 Octa Core (Quad-core 2.1 GHz Cortex-A57 + Quad-core 1.5 GHz Cortex-A53)
