Samsung Galaxy S8 (with Exynos 8895) benchmarked

Peter, 30 March 2017

The Samsung Galaxy S8 had a busy night yesterday, but there’s no time to rest - the first benchmarks are in, so let’s see how the new flagship performs against the competition.

Note that this is an Exynos 8895 unit, there’s also a Snapdragon 835 version not included in these scores. Both should perform practically identically or so Samsung claims.

We open up with a narrow win in AnTuTu 6 against the iPhone 7 Plus, which is still one of the best all-round performers. The performance increase from the previous Exynos chip is tangible and ahead of the Snapdragon 821 used by some of the Android competition.

The Galaxy S8 also claims the multi-core performance crown in Geekbench 4, beating the Kirin 960 chip inside the Huawei P10 Plus. The Exynos and Kirin are quite similar - both are based on the Mali-G71 GPU, but the Huawei silicone has stock A73 cores, Samsung’s are customized (details are scarce, though).

Rather unimpressive in the CPU department. I got 1940/6030 on my s7 exynos so barely an improvement.

My iPhone 7 Plus 128GB scored 181608 after a week using. The SoC seems need some time to boot up because the 1st time testing with Antutu scored 170K+.
