    Does the US version have the snap dragon or the exynos processor for this phone?

    Thanks for the quick reply. Is this the better one? I know my S7 had the exynos just wonder why they use two different ones.

    The Exynos is the better performer than the Snap Dragon. As for reason, Exynos did not support CDMA in past so Qualcomm for the US market and Exynos for the rest and I'll guess still the case.

    Curious, where did you buy your S7 to have an Exynos?

    May be he imported the international version, actually lots of places including best buy, Amazon etc were selling the international unlocked "F" models which had the exynos version.

    Everywhere other than the United States had the Exynos S7, even Canada. Only with the Note 7 onward did all of North America get the Snapdragon model.

    If it's from Verizon it's very definitely a Snapdragon model.

    Only S6 had exynos version in the US if I remember correctly, other than that pretty much every year it's the Snapdragon chips because of CDMA licensing with Qualcomm etc. There is a big legal battle going on with Apple and Qualcomm on how Qualcomm has unfair practices not licensing the CDMA patents in a fair way etc. Basically if you use their Snapdragon chips you will get a good deal.

    I still have S6 Edge with Exynos on verizon, so 'lack of CDMA' version sounds a bit strange

    It's not lack of CDMA, it's basically to do with licensing and money etc. It's not technical limitations it's just they have to license from Qualcomm and I believe they get a better deal using Snapdragon SOC. There are probably many discussions with more details about this issue, I'm too lazy to search 😁

    Use something like CPU-Z.

    Huh? The S7 and S7 edge was all Exynos except for USA and Japan.
