After a long wait, Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+ are finally announced by Samsung. The Galaxy S8 Benchmark Scores suggests that it is the fastest phone in the world now. This news may disappoint Apple fans as the Exynos variant of Galaxy S8 defeats iPhone 7 Plus in Benchmarks. Galaxy S8 scores higher in both Antutu and Geekbench 4 Multicore tests. Also, the Samsung Galaxy S8 has a Quad HD+ Resolution while the iPhone 7 Plus has 1080p Display. This clearly shows that Snapdragon 835 and Exynos 8895 have blown away the Apple A10 Fusion Chip. The 10nm FinFET manufacturing process used in both these chips has boosted the performance to a whole new level. The 10nm process results is a device which is extremely power efficient and doesn’t heat at all.

Let us have a look at benchmark scores of the Samsung Galaxy S8.
The Exynos variant of the Samsung Galaxy S8 scores 174,155 in Antutu Benchmarks while the Snapdragon variant scores around 165,000 mark. This clearly suggests that the combination of Exynos 8895 Processor Mali-G71 GPU is faster as compared to the Snapdragon 835 and Adreno 540.
Samsung Galaxy S8 is slightly more powerful than the Apple iPhone 7 Plus as per these benchmark scores. Upcoming Snapdragon 835 Devices that are going to have a Full HD Display are expected to score 200K+ on Antutu Benchmarks. Watch out for the upcoming Snapdragon 835 Devices!
Here’s finally something for Apple Fans to cheer up. On the single Core Performance of GeekBench 4, the Apple A10 Fusion of iPhone 7 still leads. iPhone 7 Plus scores 3473 while Samsung Galaxy S8 Exynos Variant could manage to score only 1974. Without any doubt, the cores used in Apple A10 Fusion are more powerful than the ones used in Snapdragon 835 & Exynos 8895. The cores designed by Apple are too powerful considering that Apple A10 is just a Quad-Core CPU. Qualcomm and Samsung should definitely look forward to enhancing the single-core performance of their processors.
As already shown in the Antutu Benchmarks, the overall and multicore performance of Samsung Galaxy S8 is superior to the Apple iPhone 7 Plus. In fact, the Huawei P10 Plus which has a Kirin 960 Processor is ahead of iPhone 7 Plus. The Galaxy S8 Exynos Variant Scored 6339 in Multi-Core Performance while the Huawei P10 Plus and Apple iPhone 7 Plus score 5821 & 5664 respectively. It is interesting to note that the Kirin 960 Processor also uses the Mali G-71 GPU as the Exynos 8895. But the Kirin 960 uses the Cortex-A73 cores by ARM but the Samsung Exynos 8895 uses custom Mongoose Cores. Also, Qualcomm also uses custom Kryo Cores in the Snapdragon 835.
After having a good look at all the scores, it is quite clear that the Exynos Variant of Samsung Galaxy S8 & S8 Plus is the fastest phone in the world right now. Compared to its Snapdragon 835 counterpart and the Apple A10 Fusion, it is more powerful. Unfortunately for the US users, they will have to opt for the Snapdragon 835 variant. The Global users can enjoy the more powerful Exynos 8895 Variant. Also, it must be noted that the Galaxy S8 has 1440×2960 resolution while in iPhone 7 Plus it is 1080×1920. Snapdragon 835 Devices having a 1080×1920 resolution might beat iPhone 7 Plus as well. The 10nm FinFET manufacturing process makes both the variants of Samsung Galaxy S8 ultra power efficient. This is another big advantage for the Galaxy S8 over the Apple iPhone 7. In the end, I would like to conclude by saying that the Samsung Galaxy S8 Benchmark Scores are impressive. But, benchmark scores aren’t everything, we should also look at the other aspects of a device before declaring a clear winner.
So what do you all think? Did the Samsung Galaxy S8 Benchmark Scores impress you?
Also, considering the overall specs, will you go for an iPhone 7 Plus or a Samsung Galaxy S8+?
