The Galaxy S10 + appears on the AnTuTu benchmark in its two versions: with Exynos 9820 (Europe) and with Snapdragon 855 (United States). The first results place the US model ahead in terms of performance. For the moment at least.
The Galaxy S10 + will be as always available in several versions depending on the region. In Europe, we will be entitled to S10 with Exynos 9820 SoC’s new SoC house from Samsung. In other markets including the United States, the smartphone will however be equipped with Snapdragon 855 Qualcomm just officialized . If Samsung makes sure to find a balance to have similar performance everywhere, we still find differences in performance.
Galaxy S10 +: the European version less efficient than the American?
Historically, it is the Galaxy under Exynos who are advantaged. No wonder, optimization is always easier when a group develops its own hardware. This is the big highlight of Apple with its iPhone, which has significant control over the components and software with iOS and its chips. It’s more complicated for the integration of other elements, like modems for example. The iPhone is not famous for their connection speed.
But this time, the opposite is true. In a comparison of AnTuTu benchmarks that you can find above, the S10 + with Snapdragon 855 is overall better than the one under Exynos 9820. Score of 343,051 for the first against 325,067 for the second, the difference is not not negligible. There is plenty of time left for Samsung to fix this and work better integration of its Exynos 9820.
In both cases, the results remain excellent and confirm that the Galaxy S10 + is better than the Huawei Mate 20 Pro on benchmark AnTuTu . The Huawei flagship Kirin 980, the first 7nm chip on an Android smartphone, is set to lag behind the competition in 2019.
