So the truth is EXYNOS 850 literally sucks. And it lags behind EXYNOS 9611. Even the EXYNOS 9611 cant run pubg without FPS drop ( Dont even need to say about EXYNOS 850). Samsung Flagship phones are only good for gaming. Only use in EXYNOS 850 is that it consumes less battery. For gamers battery is not that important.
