In my opinion, Exynos wins. Its download speeds make it superior. It'll easily be 50% quicker to download a movie via my AX network. The Dimensity is barely an improvement over last year's Dimensity 900 and even falls short in a couple of areas. I just tried the A34 at a Samsung store in Seoul – a great phone! I'm kind of bummed that the A54 is smaller, though.

Whilst, not a particular Exynos fan the significant difference in download/upload speeds is the decider for me and the slightly better battery life is a plus (presumably due to the smaller die size).

Samsung's 5nm nodes proved to be significantly less efficient than TSMC's 6nm nodes. In fact, the 5nm Samsung process consumes more than 30% additional power compared to the 6nm TSMC node. It's important to note that a smaller node size does not inherently equate to greater efficiency. TSMC nodes exhibit higher density than Samsung's, which has been a contributing factor to the many heating issues reported specifically with Samsung-made Snapdragon 888 and 8gen1.

1080 is better considering the TSMC Vs Samsung Fabrication. But it feels like a rebadged 920 with 200mp support.

The Dimensity 920 can support 200 MP as well, check the Infinix Zero Ultra, this phone has a Dimensity 920 with a 200 MP camera.

It isn't better even having TSCM node.
