After reading so many comments, I am totally confused about which one is better...There are comments that praise Exynos and there are comments that praise Snapdragon and also there are comments that ditch both Exynos and Snapdragon... Totally lost now...

Meh. There is no truly great flagship phone on the market at the moment. I am wanting to upgrade from my Note 10 Plus but the S22 Ultra is flawed and the new Xperia 1 iv still has a poor battery and the usual SONY overheating.

In Japan, Snapdragon will be adopted, and in the United States, Snapdragon will be adopted. Perhaps Ixinos will be used by Samsung, Ixinos, developers, South Korea and Hong Kong, China. Now that I'm replying, the Galaxy s22 series is already on sale, but the Exynos 2200 has been adopted, isn't it the 2300 next year? (I am Japanese and reply using Google Translate. There may be a conversion error in English. I'm sorry.

Got the S22 ultra on exynos 2200 chip, Heats moderately on the highest setting, and gave me geekbench 5 : 1186/3700. Tried a SD888 before and that heats up as well (and so will 8G1), that said, exynos 2200, and ofcourse android Good enough for me !! PS I work for company to supply parts to TSMC (A15 and mediatek) and SAMSUNG, and always leaned towards TSMC, but android for the moment.

Samsung told that the phones will get a software update and it will increase the battery life and chipset performance. Let's wait until then and we can see which is better according to me. It's kinda underrated and some ppl really hate it for no reason.

Lunch time, Don't be silly! Don't buy any of these phones if you don't need the most up-to-date performance. Both Samsung and Apple are evil corporations that take more and more while giving less and less. Unless you need to show off and actually care about status. Support companies like Moto. Their phones are good enough for 99% of people and they're cheap! They give you exceptional quality and great features for a fraction of the cost. Shit bags like Samsung and Apple need to go die in a ditch together for pulling such greedy bullshit year after year.

Stefan, Motorola is literally THE OLDEST phone manufacturer. They know much better than anyone else how to make good phones. And for the software... No, it's not sh*tty at all! It's a nice android experience and the irony is that they don't put any bloatware in their software, while even Samsung's one ui has some. The only problem it has is only 2 years of Android updates, sadly.

Exynos is back in the market with some tensions for snapdragon after the downfall of Exynos 990 they are all set with a dedicated mindset of innovating powerful CPUs and GPUs to have a clash with snapdragon and apple as well.

Alex 17 February 2022 00:55
They are not back anywhere!!! Bot chips are made by Samsung and they are basically the same chip with a few minor differences, like a little higher download and upload and GPU frequency on Exynos and nothing more or less!!! Both are disasters of the chip because Samsung is flagship I'm many things but making a chip is not one of those things!!! Snapdragon chip before 888 was manufactured by TMC...all good chip that everyone loves like, 845, 855, 865 and others like 720, 730, 765, 778, 780... 860 and last beast 870 who is better than 888 in every way possible! SD 888 and 8 gen1 are made by Samsung, that is why they have the same problem that Exynos has from day one!!! The big heating problem, battery drain and big and I mean big trot problem, where results drop more than 60% and that is unexceptionable for flagship chip!!! People see the name of the chip that is Snapdragon and doesn't know anything else...for example that they don't make them, others make for them! TMC's preoccupation now is making bionic for iPhone and rest for MediaTek and they refuse snapdragon for at least near future maybe more! So we can say goodbye to old good SD! As I say before Exynos 2200 and SD 8gen1 are the same chip and if you read all you can see that the names of the core are the same,(cortex x2-cortex A710 and A 510)...so everyone can stop competition who is better...both are catastrophe as flagship chip. And this is just scratch why is that so!

Ted 25 February 2022 10:17
Alex, It seems that you are TSMC hollic. In my opinion, even though these two chipsets are manufactured by Samsung but their internal design should not be the same. The core design will be all based on the ARM architecture but there should be more processes to customize its own chipset. If you say so, TMC produced M1 Apple chipset and other Mediatek chipset has to be identical according to your opinion since all are fabricated in TMC. Qualcomm Snapdragon is fully designed by the design house in the Qualcomm team and passed this to Samsung or TMC just for fabrication. Basically, no matter which company fabricates this the results won't be changed so much. I guess that you might be a big fanboy of TMC.

Do you even know anything about how the CPU works? Just having a better GPU doesn't mean it performs better. The SD is as superior as ever. Just test them both and I dare you to come to say you did not agree.

asda, Considering Samsung delayed the Exynos 2200 to tweak performance, especially of the GPU, to get it in the same ballpark as the 8 gen 1 speaks volumes. The cooperation with AMD hasn't been as successful as they'd hoped, but then it is the first chip produced under this partnership, so let's hope lessons are learned and next year is better. I'd say the Exynos 2200 is closer to the SD888 than the 8 gen 1.

If Samsung and AMD make these APIs easy for developers, I might have hope. Driver updates are very slow on Samsung phones in my experience. Driver updates are also very important. For example, on my Galaxy A51 (SM-A515F), a Mali driver update that Samsung has released via an OTA update in September 2020 increased Vulkan and OpenGL scores in Geekbench by around 400 points. There has still as of the December 2021 update, not been a graphics driver update for the Galaxy A51 for me. On my Galaxy A52s (SM-A528B), the Adreno driver is dated May 2021. As of the latest OTA update (December 2021), there has been no driver update. Now with Samsung and AMD, they should release driver updates that we could manually download through a website or something (So we can use older APK files if driver updates are broken, and also allowing many driver APKs to be installed at once so we can select specific versions we want for games to squeeze all of the performance we can get out of the AMD GPU). Here we can test (potentially unstable) drivers on specific games where we can select drivers from the developer settings in Android. The main stable driver (which Android normally uses) would still be stable and distributed with OTA updates. Most importantly, this could push Qualcomm and other competitors to do the same if it's even possible to add drivers like that in Developer options without root. Then we can use specific drivers for specific games and they can be competitive. Samsung should still release driver updates for non-AMD Galaxy phones still. Competition is important.

Really.... 21 January 2022 10:19
These chips keep getting powerful (MA, tensor, AT, 8 gen 1 and 2200 ) compared to a few years earlier chips But what we lack now is consistent performance. Yes, I have iPad Pro and Realme GT (M1 and 888) The funny thing is when I play Genshin for 4 hours on both the FPS drops like crazy the m1 loses 10-15 fps while 888 also loses the same amount more or less 1-3 fps difference. (On high setting) Meanwhile, my potato i7700hq laptop takes Genshin for 6hr+ without breaking a sweat (paired with GTX 1050) While I understand this comparison is unfair given how a laptop has a dedicated cooling mechanism + runs on a turbo when plugged in, then how about a budget of 730g or 720g? I tried gaming on them (on loan device) (setting- lowest) though they both ran on around 27-34 fps the fps was consistent even after 4 hours The flagship has power but for a limited time, the budget chips are superior in consistent performance and battery but lack power while a laptop chip at the same price point beats everything in the mobile segment. Funny eh?
