Why different chipsets for different continents?

Hi,

Why does Samsung use the Exynos chipset set in the UK/Europe but in Asia they get Snapdragon? Why does that tend to be the case? Why not just use the same chipset: Snapdragon? Thanks.

Exynos is cheaper as its homegrown product by Samsung.

They don't want to rely on snapdragon.

Look what happened to huawei.

It's pure business.

Personally don't have issue with exynos besides the youtubers harping about it.

Had an exynos s21 ultra and loved it.
Have the snap dragon s24 ultra and love it.

Doesn't make much of a difference day to day.

I understand your point but why samsung don't put home grown chip set in to asia region or even their home country though?

They need to test it in a variety of countries and different environments and stuff.

Also if they manage to get on par with snapdragon it's a win win situation.

Also Samsung being the top Android supplier. Snapdragon might not be able to supply them with all the chios as they have contracts to fill with other mobile providers.

It's demand and supply.

Enjoy your phone. Don't get too much into these nitty gritty stuff.

Personally I won't have Exynos again. S21 U was a truly awful device, especially if you wanted to make a call., send a text or connect to data.

I got the S23 Ultra on a recommendation and it was SD. Got S24 Ultra because of great deals but would not have done so had it been Exynos.

In terms of why? Simply they don't have enough manufacturing capacity for the volumes they need I guess. Plus they work with Qualcomm so share the tech.

I still have my exynos s21 ultra 16gb version and easily give me 5 hours plus SOT with all the shebang. After over 3 years now.

If you see my profile, almost all of my posts are with the s21 ultra.

The only reason I got the s24 ultra was for the tempting preorder offers.
Otherwise, I would have kept my s21 ultra.for another year.

My old S105g exynos from 2019 takes 45 minutes to update 20 apps from google playstore now. So clearly longevity is rubbish. I had an S24+ exynos that didn't perform as well as an S23 regular I had so got rid of it. Now using an impressive S23 ultra with 8gen2 which I still think is better than 8gen3. Some reviews can back me up on this. In all honesty, we'd all prefer snapdragon to exynos and Samsung know this otherwise they'd stick it in the ultra models if they were that confident.

My old s21u was a brilliant phone, in the 3yrs or so I had it, it worked flawlessly, sometimes I think why did I upgrade to the s24u.

Which one is better the S21U or the S24U.

If you're in Europe, the chipset is Exynos, but in the States/China it's the Snapdragon.
