Over a dozen hours ago, Samsung presented a new layout, which will hit 2018 to the majority of Koreans. Is it worth to try it instead of choosing a proven Snapdragon 625? Yes and no. The answer is not unambiguous.

Samsung Exynos 7872 is a new Korean processor that is designed for medium price and performance devices. Therefore, its competitor can be the Qualcomm system, Snapdragon 625, which has been on the market for some time. The last of the mentioned processors has been very successful in budget devices – mainly due to energy efficiency and sustainable performance. Which of these two chips is worth the interest?

Samsung Exynos 7872 specification:

CPU : 4 x ARM Cortex A53 / 2 x ARM Cortex A73 Technological process : 14 nanometers / 64 bit Graphics : Mali G71 MP1 Camera support : up to 21.7 megapixels on the front and rear Video : full HD in 120 fps Display : 1920 x 1200 px Connectivity : Bluetooth 5.0 / Wi-Fi 802.11n / LTE Cat 7 and Cat 13 Audio : —- Sensors : GPS, GLONASS, Beidou, Galileo Battery : Adaptive Fast Charging

Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 specification:

CPU: 8 x ARM Cortex A53 technological process 14 nm / 64-bit Graphics: Adreno 506 Support for the camera: 24 megapixels a camera / 13MP Dual Camera Video: 4K to 30 frames / sec Display: 2160 x 1080 px Connectivity: Bluetooth 4.1 / Wi-Fi 2×2 802.11ac MU MIMO / NFC / Snapdragon X9 LTE Audio : Qualcomm Aqstic Sensors : GPS, GLONASS, Beidou, Galileo Battery : Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0

Which processor should you choose?

The answer is not so simple . The most important difference between these two systems is definitely performance. Exynos 7872 will simply be faster than Snapdragon 625 – practically in any environment. The first benchmarks also show that the Samsung processor overcomes such systems as Huawei Kirin 659 and MediaTek Helio P20. And at this … it ends. Snapdragon 625 is a device designed for people who care about multimedia experience . In the processor you will find support for playing 4K materials, a better audio codec, and support for faster Wi-Fi modems. The last of the things that speaks for Snapdragon 625 is its energy efficiency. Thanks to implemented Cortex, the device's working time with this processor will be longer. Nor can you forget about native support for screens in 18: 9 proportions that are becoming more and more popular. To fully answer the question of which of these systems is better, you will have to wait for the valuation of smartphones by Samsung. There are a lot of constructions available on the market with Snapdragon 625, which may not only be better in terms of opportunities, but also more affordable from its rival. Personally, I would like to solve Qualcomm. Unfortunately, Samsung has not tried its layout. At this moment it is hard to expect more than just dry performance from him.
