Samsung fans petition Samsung to stop the usage of Exynos chipset

        Four years ago Samsung decided to use a different chipset other than it's own counterpart Exynos with the release of Qualcomm Snapdragon 810.

        After that they decided to introduce two variants in their own flagship, one with Qualcomm chipsets - which primarily releases in USA & other selective countries and other with their own Exynos - which releases in Asia and the remaining parts of the world.

Following the same pattern, this year, the Galaxy S20 series uses Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 chipset and the Exynos 990 chipset.


        And from what the recent petition shows, people aren't happy with the exynos chipsets used in Samsung flagships.


        So the story basically comes around, Samsung users created a petition on change.org to scrap the usage of Exynos SoC along with their other Samsung counterparts. Around 20,000 people signed the petition demanding  Samsung to stop using Exynos chipsets in its future smartphones.


        Samsung also uses two kinds of camera sensors in its smartphones - Sony sensors used in the US and select other countries and it's own sensors for the rest of the market.


        Essentially, the petitioners believe Samsung's parts to be inferior compared US counterparts and Mobile reviewers have also confirmed with that. "Exynos chipsets embed phones are slower, have less battery cycle life, uses inferior camera sensors , overheating and throttle faster" says the petition.


        Samsung finally responded to the issue by saying "Both the Exynos and Qualcomm processors go through the same strict and rigorous, real-life testing scenarios in order to deliver consistent and optimal performance over the entire life cycle of the smartphone."


        Also latest reports say that Samsung has shut down it's GPU division and it's working with AMD to deliver new mobile GPU's, so hopefully Exynos variants are a big boost in the future.


 Would you buy an Exynos powered Galaxy phone if it were better than a Samsung variant?
