Snapdragon 835 vs Snapdragon 821, Exynos 8890, Exynos 8895 (Galaxy S8) performance increase and benchmark results


We’ve already seen the high-end Snapdragon 835 battle it out in benchmarks, but this occasion is especially informative in terms of what to expect from the premium chipset. David Ruddock from Android Police spent some quality time at Qualcomm HQ and thoroughly benchmarked a Snapdragon 835 reference smartphone, along with several handsets running previous-gen flagship chipsets.

Of course, comparing the Snapdragon 835 results to those of the Snapdragon 821 and the Samsung Exynos 8890 processors is of most interest to us, as they are the most ubiquitous chips for flagship Android smartphones in Western markets. Their test results were obtained on a Google Pixel XL (with the Snapdragon 821 chip) and the Samsung Galaxy S7 (with the Exynos 8890 chip).

Based on David’s results, we can make reasonably accurate assumptions about the Snapdragon 835 chip’s CPU and GPU performance increases over last year’s most prominent high-end processors. We can even compare some of the results with preliminary benchmarks of the Samsung Exynos 8895 powering some Galaxy S8 and S8+ models.

Mind you, though, everyone follows different procedures for taking and recording benchmark results, as simply writing down the score after a single run does not produce a realistic result. It’s the reason why scores from the same tests on the same devices may vary widely across the web. We are confident in David’s data, though, because he’s the kind of guy that knows what he’s doing and he’s testing a legitimate Qualcomm reference device. So, onto the findings!
