A new report compiled by a variety of sources have revealed that the battery life on the Exynos 8890 running #GalaxyS7 is significantly better than the Snapdragon 820 variant. This goes to show that although the Snapdragon 820 edges out the competition in terms of power, there’s a substantial gulf between itself and the Exynos 8890 in terms of battery life and efficiency. One test found the Exynos 8890 toting model to be about 71% more efficient than the Snapdragon version.
Some other independent tests have shown similar results, suggesting that Samsung has done significant work on its own home-grown Exynos SoC. It’s either that or the Snapdragon 820 is just too much of a power hog. In any scenario, customers who own the Exynos 8890 version of the Galaxy S7 shouldn’t be too disappointed compared to their counterparts.
The Galaxy S7 is available with an Exynos 8890 chipset in most regions of Asia and Europe, while the U.S. and some other parts of the world received the Snapdragon 820 version of the device.
