    I know exynos is generally better, but are there any advantages to having the snapdragon variant of the s8?

    How can you say that Exynos is better than a Qualcomm Snapdragon processor? Those phones with Snapdragon processors actually has a longer life span. They can be used for years without deteriorating performance.

    Prior to the Snapdragon 835, benchmarks have traditionally shown Exynos coming out on top (especially in multi-tasking). The obvious difference before was octa-core vs quad-core. The 835 however now has 4 performance cores and 4 efficiency cores. We won't know advantages/disadvantages until people get hands on and benchmark them. Hope this helps.

    Do you realize Samsung's fabricating S-835 for Qualcomm using the same 10nm process used for Exynos 8895?

    Everything I've read shows Exynos beating S-835 in CPU tests and Mali beating Adreno; the latter significantly. There are some tests where S-835 under performs S-820/1.

    None of this matters if Samsung tunes the S8 s/w so that both chips perform comparably.

    If you want CDMA, gotta stick with snapdragon. Of course Samsung could use a exynos CPU with a CDMA capable baseband processor, but they didn't.
