Thing is most people don't care, I'm not saying the exynos is good in comparison to the sd865 just that most people won't notice a difference between it and the 865. The note 20 will be the only good device with a pen in 2020, and with the fact exynos won't bother many people, I don't think you will be able to convince them not to buy it.

I think that this Exynos vs Snapdragon topic has blown up to the levels that not many anticipated. Even my girlfriend asked me if we are going to upgrade our Galaxies this year because she has seen somewhere online that they are not good. She did not know the details but she knew people are not happy about it. I explained to her what's going on and said "We will find out on the 5th of August". She might stick with her S10e for another year but I will gamble on LG Velvet instead as my Note 10 dies around 7pm (3pm if I play games). The point that I am trying to make is: My girlfriend, person who knows nothing about Exynos, Snapdragon, Amoled, Dex etc. Is aware of the issue at hand and asked me for advice first rather than blindly spending £1000 just because its Samsung. Sure, Note will still sell in millions but I am still betting on massive decline against previous years and high percentage of these "millions" to be Snapdragon powered.

I was really hyped about Note 20 but the news about Exynos 990 changed it drastically.

I am still hoping that 5th of August will be a nice surprise for everyone.

Kind Regards

I might be wrong but I don't believe there is any official Samsung Site's that shows the Specs of the Note 20.

 

Only rumours and Tech Blog sites expressing their ideas on whats going to be with the Note 20 Phones.

 

I've not seen anything official that Samsung are going to use a current Exynos chipset.

 

I have seen rumours that they are going to use an updated Exynos Chipset.

 

Some people did pick up on issues that they were experiencing with the Samsung Galaxy s20 phone's in that battery management appeared not to be as efficient as the Snapdragon chipset, but then some owners in the States said the Exynos chipset handled battery better than the Snapdragon chipset  !, and that it didn't handle the higher refresh rate and some lag was experienced with some games.

 

I'm in the Uk using the Samsung Note10 + 5G with the Exynos 9825 Chipset and haven't experienced any issues although obviously it does not have the higher refresh rate option that the Note 20 is expected to have.

 

Will the Samsung Note 20 having the Exynos chipset put me off it , probably not as I've had no issues with all my past and current Samsung phones in the UK, and the Snapdragon simply isn't available in my region and I'm not prepared to import a model as that in itself can bring some problems.

Let's wait until the official announcement first :winking-face: 

 

The exynos 990 isn't a bad SoC at all, but it is indeed in some areas worse than the Snapdragon 865, especially in terms of battery life when it's used more (The speed difference is hardly noticeable, throttling due to heat is more of an issue). 

 

On the other hand, the Exynos is better when it comes to networking on the european market. 

 

Regardless, let's wait for the official announcement before jumping conclusions :smiling-face:

I agree with what's been said earlier in the thread.

 

For us geeks it can be a deal breaker.

 

For the general consumer they won't even be bothered what chipset is inside or consider it.

 

They want to see it last a day , take good photos and be able to call , text and surf on which is what it's all about ! :winking-face:

 

Oh and play a few games on it when bored.  Lol.

 

I'm not making any assumptions until I've seen it in action on YouTube and in my local Samsung Experience Store.

 

The chipset's haven't been announced or confirmed yet by Samsung have they yet !!

I was about to buy it untill I saw we will get  30% less in performance here in Sweden and pay about 200 dollars more compared to Korea and the US. Apparently Samsung feels that Europeans are stupid and not worth much compared to South Korea and the US. We are expected to pay more and just accept that we are inferior and unimportant 👍🤙

just do not buy this 990, that is the only thing we can do as consumers for the moment.

Sure that next year will make america and china regret not having an exynos chip

I love the phone design and the bronze colour on the Note 20, but I really do not want to buy an inferior version just because I live in the UK particularity around throttling and battery life. Can I buy the snapdragon version from elsewhere and still use 5G in the UK or will that not work?

 

As an iPhone user this seems really crazy of Samsung as I remember having to go to HK to get my previous Samsung Galaxies to ensure it wasn't Exynos and I foolishly assumed they would have sorted the situation by now. I'm happy to jump to Android temporarily to see how things are before I get the iPhone 12 in September time, but Samsung don't have a viable phone to sell me!

I guess you will have to get it from Hong Kong once again, but how and if the 5G will work is something I do not know
