Comparison: Samsung Galaxy S4 with 5 octa-core Exynos vs. Snapdragon 600

From the Samsung Galaxy S4, there are (at least) four variants with two different processors: once the 600 quad-core Snapdragon and the variant with the octa-core Exynos 5. Since the obvious question is how the two versions of smart phones differ in terms of performance and battery life.

Engadget had the opportunity now to make this comparison. No difference between the four different variants S4 Externally it is at first sight to make out the GT-i9500 1.6GHz Exynos, the I9502 with Dual SIM for the Chinese market and also 1.6 GHz Exynos, the SHV-E300 with 1.8 GHz Exynos for Korea and the I9505 with the Snapdragon 1.9 GHz and 600.

Although the Exynos is advertised as octa-core system and the processor actually has eight cores, but these 8 cores do not run at the same time, there are always only four cores used. Depending on the current requirement are either weaker four Cortex-A7 cores or even the stronger four Cortex-A15 cores. Through this system should be able to expect a more efficient use of the battery.

While cutting the variant with 5 octa-core Exynos in most tests better, but dramatic differences are not really. And as further tests of Engadget revealed the Galaxy S4 with Exynos 5 can octa-core even with the battery life does not really score: The video test the Snapdragon holds 600 Version 9 hours and 15 minutes through the Exynos version is already on just under 8 hours. Also in the “real-life test” wins the Snapdragon with 600 clear 15 around 12 hours of run time.

Remains as a conclusion: The Exynos 5 octa-core Snapdragon is the total not really think if you set performance and battery life into perspective, then a small increase in performance is significantly lower battery life compared to. And for most users likely to be important is the battery life.
