Battery life of Samsung Galaxy S7: Exynos 8890 vs Snapdragon 820

When you discover that you’ve bought a Samsung Galaxy S7 with the best processor on the market will rejoice, and so should be all who have a Samsung Galaxy S7 with the Samsung Exynos 8890.

Samsung has been forced to mount two different processors on the Galaxy S7, the Exynos 8890 and the Snapdragon 820 but the truth is that, despite having a similar performance, the Exynos 8890 is better in every way. The Exynos 8890 is not only more powerful than the Snapdragon 820 (especially when we use several of their cores) but it is also more efficient in battery consumption, something that stands out as notably the Exynos the previous generation.

battery life of the Galaxy S7: Exynos vs Snapdragon

We luckily only have one unit with the Exynos 8890 but what is certain is that GSMArena has been commissioned to carry out a extensive test between the two versions of the Samsung Galaxy S7 to determine the battery consumption of both terminals.

In the same test we can see that the version of the Samsung Galaxy S7 that mounts the Snapdragon 820 has a battery life something less than it mounts the Exynos 8890.

  • Two hours of conversation more in the Exynos 8890.
  • Up to 3 hours of video playback more on the Exynos 8890.
  • Three hours and a half duration at the time of browsing on the Internet.

What is certain is that the differences are quite significant taking into account that both models mount a battery with the same capacity of mAh, 3600 mAh. This makes us see the improvement of efficiency between the two processors.

Now, you have a Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge with Exynos or Snapdragon you’ll have also one of the best autonomy of the market in terms of normal phones but yes it is true that if you have the option of buying a Galaxy S7 Edge, or a Galaxy S7 through any company that amount of terminals you’ll have an improved autonomy although you have to be careful with the regional block that incorporate these terminals.
