Refurbished Galaxy Note7 benchmarked, found spry and limber

Peter, 19 June 2017

The refurbished Galaxy Note7 be it the Note7R or Note FE has left footprints in the Geekbench fields. A good tracker will easily tell that the beast has an Exynos 8890 heart, but is it beating at full strength?

The benchmark detected a clock frequency of 1.6GHz matching the speed of the power-efficient cluster of the original. Unfortunately, it did not detect the clockspeed of the more capable cluster. RAM remains unchanged at 4GB, as expected.

Here is how the processor stacks up against some recent high-end offerings.

GeekBench 4.1 (multi-core)

Higher is better

  • Galaxy S8+ (E8895)
    6754
  • Xiaomi Mi 6 (S835)
    6719
  • HTC U11 (S835)
    6393
  • Galaxy S8+ (S835)
    6301
  • Galaxy Note FE (E8890)
    6092
  • Oppo R11 (S660)
    5777
  • Xperia XZ Premium (S835)
    5460

GeekBench 4.1 (single-core)

Higher is better

  • Galaxy S8+ (E8895)
    1986
  • Galaxy Note FE (E8890)
    1957
  • Xiaomi Mi 6 (S835)
    1929
  • HTC U11 (S835)
    1919
  • Xperia XZ Premium (S835)
    1836
  • Galaxy S8+ (S835)
    1832
  • Oppo R11 (S660)
    1596

The scores are surprisingly solid close to the Exynos 8895 chipset inside the Galaxy S8 pair and close to the Snapdragon 835 as well. The chipset seems to have aged very well, it seems that the smaller battery capacity did not lead Samsung to downclock the chipset to save power.

The most recent benchmark for the SM-N935S is significantly lower (in the 1,000/4,000 range). Its a one-off result, so were going to ignore it. Note that this is Geekbench 4.1, previous versions (v4.0 and especially v3.0) are not comparable.
