This petition requests Samsung to stop using Exynos processors in its phones

A new petition has now appeared on Change.org that requests Samsung to stop using Exynos processors in its phones. The petition also questions the use of ISOCELL sensors instead of Sony’s camera sensors in Exynos variants of Samsung’s smartphones.

The online petition has now gathered the backing of more than 15,000 consumers, with the target set at 25,000 signatures. It is claimed in the petition that Exynos chipsets perform worse than their Snapdragon counterparts in terms of processing speed, heat management, and power consumption.

The petition was started by Daniel H. four days ago. It states that “phones with Exynos SoC chips are shown to perform slower, have less battery life, use inferior camera sensors and processing, overheat and throttle faster, amongst other issues.

There have been reports which show that variants of the Galaxy S20 phones using the Exynos 990 chipset have slower CPU and GPU performance, higher clock speed throttling, inefficient heat management, and worse battery life in comparison to the variants with the Snapdragon 865 chipset.

Every year Samsung releases a new high-end phone, the Exynos vs. Snapdragon issue pops and consumers complain, with no specific way to know for sure if it’s the issue with the hardware design or Samsung’s software optimization techniques or both.

We think that the company knows about this issue, which is why it has stalled the development of its custom Mongoose CPU cores, laid off the entire CPU dev team in Austin R&D center, and announced to use AMD’s Radeon graphics technology in its upcoming smartphone chipsets.

Do you think Samsung can put all Exynos related issues behind it and develop a chipset that matches Snapdragon processors in the next couple of years?

Exynos is 2 gens behind Snapdragon, and Snapdragon is 2 gens behind Apple’s A13.

I HATE EXYNOS

I have to charge my s10e atleast twice a day, gets hot like crazy, cannot play games like PUBG with high settings.

Yes of course! In Europe is more expensive than USA but not snapdragon!

Sigh. “No” Exynos means (with small exceptions): 1. NO unlocked bootloaders 2. NO jumping to different regional firmware (e.g. if I could have switched to German firmware, I could have joined the Android 10 beta and been among the first to get the final build) 3. NO rooting when it matters (i.e. while the phone is still considered a flagship) 4. NO post-EOL custom ROM support (e.g. Lineage OS) 5. Worse OOB wireless band support (e.g. SD N9750 lacks 3G AWS) Even though I personally use an SD variant, I want the Exynos variant/option to continue existing for the above… Read more »

Good points of course, though the children will disagree.

NO… WHAT IS MY OPINION SAMSUNG SHOULD CONTINUE WITH MAKING AN EXYNOS , I AM FROM EUROPE , WE ALWAYS HAD AN EXYNOS VERSION. I REMEBER ONE TIME WITH NOTE 4 , THERE WERE EXYNOS VERSION , AND SNAPDRAGON , AND I HAD SNAPGRADON , BUT EXYNOS WAS WAYYYYYYY BETTER. WHAT WOULD I RECOMEND FOR A PETTETION. FIRST , NO MORE 128GB ON FLAGSHIPS. NO LESS THAN 12GB RAM ON FLAGSHIPS NO MORE FLAGSHIPS WITHOUT AN SD CARD SUPPORT. ALSO , NO MORE FLAGSHIPS WITHOUT NOTIFICATION LED , 3D TOUCH , BIOMETRICS , IRIS SCAN , AND ETC… THE SAD… Read more »

Well said and right . Of course all the twits will disagree with you, so don’t pay any attention to the spoiled children who think that they’re losing out. Your list……..far more sensible.

I fully agree on using just the SD if the advantage continues. But Samsung is saving money with their own soc

Absolutely correct petition, samsung processors are not good at all, we want to return to the processors Qualcomm who have proven their reliability over time

This is without doubt the most hilarious and ridiculous change.org petition I’ve ever seen, particularly as this site is geared towards really serious social and political issues in this world, things that actually matter. This is an embarrassment. Do these petitioners think that Samsung is going to close down it’s flagship chip factories and only use Qualcomm to satisfy them? . Btw, some perspective. 25,000 is 0.003125% of the 800 million users of phones including Samsung themselves that use Exynos chips. People can get an inflated perception of their own importance. πŸ˜‚

Lol… you underestimate the effects of bad publicity….more & more customers that wanted to get a S20 are now reconsidering…at the end its Samsung that loses… I’m due for an upgrade for my S9 but guess what Sammy can keep their poor Exynos…no Snapdragon = no buy…. I’m getting myself a Sony this time and be laughing those with the Exynos everytime…

Nokia used this strategy of giving customers poor/inferior chips and look at them now…lol

Samsung is on the same path…

So, why did they actually increase sales of both mobile phones and mobile chips last quarter? Do you seriously think that anyone other than a few tech nerds like us care about this stuff? 99.99% of people who buy phones don’t know or care what chip is in it once it works? We’re not very important my friend. If anyone from Samsung read your comment and then looked at their chip sales spreadsheet showing increased market share they’d just laugh at your insignificance, and they’d be right to.

They do actually think that. Lol. These people are seriously delusional in thinking there’s any remote chance that Samsung will halt billion dollar production facilities because they’re butthurt about not getting an SD chip. Spoiled kids. They can always buy another phone. Many probably have. I was just checking, over a billion devices get Exynos chips every year and they think Samsung should worry about what they think. 🀣

Well as they say, if you never shoot, you will always miss.

I don’t have much hope that a petition like this changes anything, but it will remind Samsung that there is some frustration over their business practice.

Maybe it will spur them on a little to improve their own chip a bit more.

Lol…Samsung will go down…more& more customers will boycott those poor Exynos phones worldwide…Customers can’t be fooled twice Samsung… these days many customers do a proper research & those that don’t end up regretting buying Exynos phones…

Only US gets Snapdragon… that’s daylight robbery considering the Exynos is more expensive and sold worldwide.

This year Samsung will have poor sales in their flagship segment…customer is king…if Samsung doesn’t change they’ll become the next Nokia…forgotten

Sexynos is cool. I gues if there was just an option to choose from. It would be logistocli chalenging though

Samsung has to be faire and put Just one chip for all…
I don’t care if it’s exynos or snapdragon….anything else is a mess.
Just my 2 cents.

I hope they stop making exynos all together, and use snapdragon globally.
But then its Samsung, who put their profit first so…

At last, somebody else with a sensible comments. The Exynos chips are totally fine. A few people can get stupidly hung up on benchmark numbers and a few milliseconds, and think they know better than a multibillion dollar company who sells more phones than anyone else and actually is taking market share from other mobile chip makers.

If anything points to the stupidity of this, it’s the previous article showing that Samsung has surpassed Apple in it’s range of chips and it’s the only company to achieve growth. Our company is using both Exynos and Snapdragon Note10 plus devices in our European and US offices. We have used both versions of Notes for years. Firstly, the difference in real world work usage is nil to negligible. In fact, the Exynos versions are rendering our 3D AutoCad files slightly faster than the Snapdragon version. Secondly, If anyone thinks that Samsung are going to scrap a multi billion dollar… Read more »

You’re right. Of course they won’t change. The Exynos chips are the third most successful mobile chips and are increasing their market share. Why would they change that to keep a few thousand people happy?

ALL of us love to get Samsung phones, and moving to other companies was not an option in the first place. I agree the difference between the two variants not clear unless you are gaming in your phone, then you will feel really bad. β€œI’m assuming you watched YouTube videos that compare between them”. Finally, I’m optimistic Samsung will use Arm cores in the next chip and the deal that the company made with AMD showed the company aware of the problem and working hard to solve it. Instead of voting in this petition, let’s hope Exynos will return stronger… Read more »

Exactly, I’m sure they won’t be missed. It probably qualifies as one of the most stupid, unrealistic change.org petitions yet. As if Samsung is going to say right, we’re going to shut down a multi billion dollar manufacturing set up that has just overtaken Apple as the third biggest global mobile chip brand because 25,000 people want a Snapdragon. Lol.

Thnx for sharing and already signed as new owner of S20 ultra 5G Exynos (unfortunately).
Next petition should be return 3,5mm jack, stop using ridiculous 128GB storage for flag ships, include 45W charger in sales package for top models, add useful bookmarks to Samsung Daily and of course release SW sooner as G988BXXU1ATCH still NOT available in Czechia (open market).
