While 2020 might have been a year to forget for Samsung’s chipmaking division, the company wants to let everyone know that it has learned its lesson. How else would you explain the fact that its latest product teaser has been made entirely out of Exynos 990 hate? Namely, the video that you can view below […]
Samsung was more than happy to benefit from its rival's misfortune across numerous segments.
The Exynos 1080 was announced last week, and it is Samsung’s first 5nm mobile chipset.

And this step alone could mean a drastic change in […]
Samsung has described the Galaxy S20 FE (Fan Edition) as a product that contains only those features that real users value in its latest unboxing advertisement campaign. In other words, it’s a phone designed for fans – reason why it’s called the Fan Edition – and according to Samsung, the Galaxy S20 FE meets the fans’ expectations […]

Nearly half a year after receiving its DOA label, the engineering horror that is the Exynos 990 is still a part of our daily discourse.
There’s only one winner in an Exynos 990 vs Snapdragon 865 comparison and it’s not Samsung. Its chips have not been able to match their Snapdragon counterparts over the past few years.

The Snapdragon 865+ was recently announced by Qualcomm. This chip is expected to power select variants of the Galaxy Note 20 and Galaxy Note 20 Ultra that will be released in a few markets like the United States.

It used to be that the thing Samsung’s most loyal fans used to complain about a lot was software updates. One could cut the company some slack. It launches dozens of smartphones every year and not only do they require software support, but the dozens released in the previous years also do so as well. […]
Samsung gave us a statement which essentially says there's no Exynos 990 vs Snapdragon 865 performance gap, but that's just not what the reality is.

Several reports have highlighted the differences between the two chipsets with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 865 edging out Samsung’s Exynos 990 processor.

While smaller brands like ASUS, OnePlus, and Razer started offering screens with a 90Hz (or faster) refresh rate as early as 2017, the South Korean smartphone giant stuck to the usual 60Hz on Galaxy flagships. With its 2020 flagship […]
