My phone has the 7904 version and my tablet has 9611. I think the Exynos 9611 is better the performance outmatched the 7904 but the 7904 is awesome for my phone I like it its fast and simple but this is the reason I bought my tablet is because the processor is faster and better gaming performance. Overall they are both awesome processors
