Very good result! How did you get your copy of the AnTuTu app? I heard there are many unrealiable places to download it from, wrapped with malware, so I have been reluctant to download it, unless reassured of a version that's clean and good to run.
I've downloaded main app from https://www.antutu.com/en/download.htm and 3D helper from Galaxy Store. I was assuming that downloading app from antutu.com will be safest option but that must be a reason why it's not in Google Store...

    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.
    Not complaining tbh, i never did a rendering on my device. I have a humongous PC for that.

    Also yeah, i did not see much difference when i compared mine E2100 to my friends HK SD.

    He lost couple of things coz he imported it while i did not.

    But i just wanted to share the video and read your opinion guys.

    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

    Yes thats right but we can say exynos isnt that bad as the last years... Isnt as fast as snapdragon but better than last gen snapdragon lol... Last year it was also slower and less eficient than the snapdragon the year before so now it isnt as bad... But yes Samsung should have made the exynos on pair, especially the gpu is a few Generations behind...

    Two weeks ago I was more into Xiaomi Mi 11 ultra, OP 9 Pro was total disappointment. But after watching reviews, seeing that both Xiaomi and OP can get so hot that they have to dim screen brightness was terrifying.

    I prefer to have slightly less benchmark score and have cooler and more stable device.

    I'm not mobile gamer, I have really decent PC and Nintendo Switch as a backup.

    Last year Snapdragon vs Exynos was bad but this year I'm even glad that I have Exynos. I watched some benchmarks, and it looks like Snapdragon is better with GPU tasks, Exynos wins in CPU tasks. Considering that I'm not even bothering playing games on my smartphone I don't have complaints.

    Or maybe one... photos from Snapdragon version looks sharper if I'm not mistaken. I don't had a chance for some outdoor testing cause currently the weather for my area is rainy.

      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.

      Maybe because China and USA are not the whole world.

      No heating issues at all with my s21u exynos

      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.

      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.

      I seriously have a feeling that both versions of the phone are nearly identical in performance and camera quality. The primary reason why we see so many threads regarding heat issues, app crash issues or battery issues are not necessarily due to the versions of the phone that are being used (Exynos or Snapdragon)... But instead, I think that this is mainly due to the fact that a lot of Samsung's phone sales are to people who aren't very tech friendly....at all...

      I mean, think of Apple's iPhone market. What percentage of their customers are tech geniuses who know everything about complete device care and optimization? I'd say, near me in the US, maybe about 3-5% of their customers... And with that said, you have to keep in mind that Samsung is the most Apple equivalent company in sales numbers for Android devices in the US. So probably only about 1-2% of their phone customers actually know what the heck they're doing.

      So (internally thought lol) truth be told, I don't think one variant is better than the other. I just think that we need to keep in mind the fact that the Samsung phone market is packed to the gills with customers who don't know much at all regarding the technology that's used or how it works/can be optimized or made better.

      Side note: this was a long comment, so my apologies.
      That's allright ,
      But imo apple is from day 1 producing good chips and their optimization is top notch ,
      And samsung in US is just offering Snapdragon .
      That's the main reason people are not complaining about both , and they don't care what are the specs in their phone .

      Also US is a relatively cold area so not much is going around throttling issues .


      I live in india where highest temps reach 45°C , where the real problem of thermal throttling arise .

      So I care much about these things .
