Maybe this Exynos 1380 should be in Samsung's 2x/3x line and not 5x. Samsung's progress this round is Exynos 1330, not Exynos 1380. At its level, it's pretty competitive.

When comparing the SD778G, found in the Galaxy A52s and Galaxy A73, with the Exynos 1380, found in the Galaxy A54, each may have its pros and cons. If you have a Galaxy A52s, it's advisable to keep using it for at least one more year until the end of support, while the Galaxy A73 can continue for another three years, as its performance is still great, much like the new Galaxy A54. However, don't expect them to be very similar. Samsung's Exynos chips are well-known for overheating during heavy usage, while Qualcomm Snapdragon chips exhibit slightly less overheating and marginally better power efficiency. TSMC's 6nm process is not the same as Samsung's 5nm process. Smaller may be better, but sometimes overheating can cause the battery to drain more quickly, even if Samsung's 5nm semiconductor appears to be somewhat better than TSMC's 6nm. In reality, they are almost the same but not quite. If you're looking to get a Samsung phone, consider the Galaxy A73 or the Galaxy A54, which is slightly better than the Galaxy A53. This doesn't mean the Galaxy A54 is superior to the Galaxy A52s, but it may have other advantages, such as longer software update support (four years of OS updates and five years of security updates).

A52s is eligible to get Android 14 & 4 years of security updates, which is until 2025.

All fight just goes to Snapdragon and Mediatek for now especially when it comes to an Android mobile, do not expect too much for Exynos to compete with 2 welter fights.

Exynos can compete with Qualcomm/Apple A Bionic and Mediatek.

Snapdragon 778G came out with A52S. But since Samsung produced 2 generations of the A series, no processor could beat 778G. Moreover, with the new A54, Samsung's middle-end phones are still weaker than 778G / A52S.

I'd say Exynos 1380 is on par if not better than the 778G on paper, but we'll see if it can truly hold up against 778G after this.

Xavier, It might be a better strategy for Samsung to first place their Exynos chips in their entry-level and mid-range devices, rather than diving straight into competing with flagship chipsets, similar to MediaTek's approach. It's unfortunate for current lower-end and mid-range Samsung buyers, but if Samsung can sort out their chip manufacturing, the increased competition will benefit consumers in the long run.

Xavier, That's pretty bad to me, 2023 still using 778G-level in a upper-midrange phone

Xavier, Bro, the 1380 can't even reliably beat a 2-year-old processor (778G). That shows how bad Exynos is. Also, check their throttling characteristics; the 1380 is just horrible. Even the cheaper A34 with its Dimensity 1080 has far better stability. The only reason Samsung still uses Exynos is that they've spent so much money on facilities and development; they can't abandon it due to the sunk cost fallacy. A better decision/strategy would be to put a Dimensity 8100 or even a cheaper 7200 in the A54 and give the future A74 the D8100/8200 as well. This would result in a killer, overpowered mid-range lineup with good cameras, battery life, throttling, performance, and software support. Samsung would be selling phones like hotcakes.

JJJ, There are no plans for an a74 in the near future though
