    Just wanting to know how many US buyer are going to make the switch to the Exynos due to No Custom Roms?

    Each one is region specific i.e. Exynos is for Europe, China, Korea and Snapdragon will be sold in America. I would prefer the Exynos but I guess I have to get the Snapdragon.

    Sorry if this sounds like an ignorant question but last year the snapdragon had 4 cores and the exynos 8 cores?

    And this year they both have 8 cores?

    That's correct. Snapdragons have traditionally been Quadcore but according to Qualcomm the 835 will have 4 performance cores running at 2.45 GHz and 4 efficiency cores running at 1.9 GHz.

    The snapdragon 835 is a beast and sadly Samsung is the first (and only ..until maybe the new Pixel or the LG v series, ) to have it, they have a exclusivity and monopoly, that could be a dubble edge sword, the HTC 10 first to have the Snapdragon 820, and it had hardware issues, with overheating and droping performance, the 820 v2 was basicaly the same chipset, yet more stable and reliable and worked great on devices like the LG v20 and arguably for the phone of that year the Nexus 6p

    Xiaomi's Mi 6 and Mi 6 Plus and Sony's new flagship will all ship with the Snapdragon 835. I don't see a monopoly. No need to wait for the next Pixel - that will probably not be released until late Fall with maybe an updated version of the 835. LG was just determined to ship a flagship in March, good for about 30 days, but I think they will be paying a heavy price by summer.

    If course i'm getting an snapdragon, more open to Custom ROMs. Exynos, not so much with his propertary drivers.

    does anybody know with the snapdragon being an 835 what the battery life is suppose to be!? reason I'm asking is because the more cores the more drain on your battery.

    Will you be able to unlock the bootloader?
    I remember how people wanted to get Snapdragon version of S7 and ended up with disappointment because it is locked.

    Will there be a Exynos version of the S8 that works on VZW (CDMA)?

    From what I've read, the new snapdragon will be remarkably faster for this phone than its predecessor.

    I read somewhere that since Samsung made a deal to use the Snapdragon 835, they can't use their own chip.... Is this true?

    For me, it is the Snapdragon S8.Not sure about the Exynos but not doubting the prowess of Samsung

    Whatever is available for T-Mobile, so I'm sure the Snapdragon.

    That was an agreement made by Samsung with Qualcomm back in the 90s. They licensed Qualcomm patents, and in exchange would not sell their chips to anyone else without paying extra for licensing fees.

    I believe the S6/S6 edge was the only time they used their own chip.

    Qualcomm's Snapdragon has made a big leap forward in performance and this is evidenced in the large amount of devices where they are used so for me I'd rather have Snapdragon rather than Exynos.

    I'm in Europe, so I guess if I were to get it it's going to be an Exynos version. Which is not bad at all!
