Snapdragon 800 a bit long in the tooth by now.

Tip us?

For what it's worth, I have both the Tab Pro 8.4 and 10.1 and I find that with the stock ROM the 10.1 runs better than the 8.4. The 8.4 might be a little snappier but the 10.1 feels smoother, less jittery screen etc. Both with Google now launcher and lots of Samsung apps disabled.

There was an interview with a Samsung SLI engineer that I can't find again where he talked more about it. In addition to battery savings (which the S' need desperately on whites) he talked about greatly improved screen refresh rates. He discussed it as a big advantage over Snapdragon. Maybe (finally) there's something in Exynos that the higher demand (guess) big AMOLED display's benefit from. I guess we'll see when the North America S-800 LTE devices come out whether there's any performance or battery life differences compared to their global Exynos/LTE brethren.
Snapdragons need to run a double width display interface to be able to run QHD screens, the Exynos doesn't. Don't have numbers, but this affect power consumption, it's correct.

Could also just be that the yield-rate for the Exynos was worse when the S5 decision was made compared to the Tab S concept phase and / or the already secured a stable pricing from Qualcom than the projected cost per Exynos SOC.

I have US WiFI 8.4 with Exynos chip and I can tell you with no issues that no matter what the benchmarks are saying. But stock TW runs like crap on this chip. There is stutter, jitter, lag everwhere. Chrome is almost useless because scrolling is pre-gingerbread style. TW ate all the butter KitKat had to offer. I am sure it would be same on Snapdragon 800 too.
Hence the reason I put BLCK CM11 on it and its like day and night. Now I can say that this is smooth and I love it.

I dunno. I see TW running pretty smoothly on SD based phones like S4/S5. Even the QHD S5 Prime runs good.
