As we all know there are many different companies which build soc(system-on-chip). Let me name them

  • Apple bionic
  • Samsung Exynos
  • Qualcomm snapdragon
  • Meditek
  • Kirin

These chips are used in mobile phones. Apple bionic chip are only made for Apple devices while exynos is only used for Samsung phones. Today we will compare exynos 990 vs snapdragon 865+


Snapdragon is the second fastest and reliable chip after Apple A bionic. Snapdragon is faster than Exynos because snapdragon don’t get heat while Exynos gets heat up and lose its performance. On different platforms, Qualcomm snapdragon 865 got 94 points while Exynos 990 got 77 points. If we talk about CPU performance Exynos take a lead here Snapdragon has 1 x 2.84 & 3 x 2.42 & 4 x 1.8 GHz while Exynos has 2 x 2.7 & 4 x 2.4 & 2 x 1.95 GHz. Qualcomm is compatible with single shooters boasting resolutions of up to 200MP while the Exynos 990 is ‘limited’ to 108MP. Another major thing is that Exynos doesn’t even support a refresh rate of more than 120HZ while snapdragon 865+ supports up to 144HZ display which matters a lot. In my testing and if I talk about my experience I noticed that after some time of usage Exynos starts laying and heating and feels creepy and slow while Snapdragon remains the same with performance, Though it’s not a fact but an opinion which I noticed and felt.
