I don't know how anyone would bother getting the Exynos. It's trash. I went straight for the snapdragon and couldn't be happier.

Furthermore, there've been mixed reports on which is clearly better. Last year, it appeared unanimous that the SD was superior in every way.

This time however, there are several reports that the Exynos is better in battery and general photography. It also appears that the Exynos has closed the gap even more with gaming after the April update, with some reports showing it's got slightly ahead in specific scenarios. For example:

One clear win for the SD was with lowlight videos, but this has also improved significantly for Exynos with the April update - with the main lens, I actually prefer the Exynos now for lowlight videos.

My question is when will they improve the video format? The bit rate is really low and the 4K video is significantly less sharp than competitors due to this. Why is it so hard just to use the normal bit rate?

    Guys if you are not too happy with the video quality, just get the Filmic Pro app. Yes, it costs 15 euros on the play store, and YES, it is totally worth it. Just watch some YouTube videos on how to use it properly as there is some learning curve.

    The latest version gives so many control options over video that it makes the original CAM app look like a joke. Plus if you are after some slow motion while retaining quality, it has a 1080p 120fps recording option.

    Uses both ultra wife and main sensors. Has selectable video quality and also video formats, audio settings and many more things.

    I was hesitant about buying it as it is expensive but i do am glad i went for it.

    Filmic's video quality is definitely superior to the original app.

    Versus threads have a tendency to sometime bring out bad sides of people... I've had to spend a few minutes cleaning up the thread, since language and temper was getting a bit out of hand.

    Keep things civil and respectful, and there's no need for profanities or name-calling. Simple as that...

    If anyone has anything to add, or any questions, my conversation inbox is always open.

    Have a good day everybody.

      Maybe because China and USA are not the whole world.

      I know there are already a few threads for the same discussion ,
      But I am making this thread for a healthy discussion on what's better between Snapdragon 888 and Exynos 2100 after the latest software updates for both models .


      There are youtube reviews that are contradictory to each other

      1) Mrwhosetheboss says Snapdragon is way better and Exynos is heating like crazy.
      Also in camera sd>exynos




      2) The tech chap on the other hand says Exynos to be faster and cooler .



      Let's discuss

      After my experience with the Exynos, I'm far more inclined to believe the Tech Chap. I've had no issues with thermal throttling, and my phone sits most of the time at between 28 and 32 degrees when being used under normal circumstances (browsing, light camera use etc). I've also run the benchmarks he ran and got pretty much the same results. I'm very happy with it.

      I strongly suspect that boss geezer just had bad luck and picked up an Exynos model with a bad SOC. The difference between the two is he didn't buy another to rule that out.

      Xiaomi and oneplus are always better in Benchmark. But i think in daily use galaxy phones are more stable .
      S21u with snapdragon 888 has almost same Performance as Exynos 2100.
      Both oneplus and xiaomi are going to 45°c or even higher .
      Whereas samsungs stays cool at 40°c.

      Moreover both processors are made by samsung this time around ,
      So tbh samsung is reducing the benchmarks results of sd888 , so that people dont complain .

      In general sd888 is scoring better in both geekbench and antutu as compared to e2100

      Yo bro,

      Listen, avoid YouTube reviews. Bro these ppl are just benefiting from these kindda arguments and stuff.

      I had the s21 ultra 512 and i sold it coz i have literally watched every single review out there and was too worried i might have been scammed or made the wrong choice.

      After talking to some ppl here i bought it again and this time i made sure i cleared my search history lol and never ever to watch a thing.

      It is not SD888 but it is close, it has good battery, cameras are barely any difference between them. If you game a lot you should really just buy a different phone just for gaming.

      The screen is phenomenal.

      Bro i live in Kuwait, temps here reach 55°....until now i have not experienced any extreme heating issues.

      My advice to you, don't listen to anything, the device is amazing...yes it lacks behind the SD888 but for me it's the better pick.. i get warranty for a year and a trade on later or i can even sell it and not lose while the imported is basically non sellable here.

      So weigh things out and decide, once you decide do not regret. Do not hesitate it's just a phone, if you have a slight doubt avoid it and wait for a different phone.

      Goodluck.
