Samsung should explain this... Exynos vs Qualcomm?! - Note 20 Ultra
Its time to find out how different the Note 20 Ultra variants really are. We found different cooling systems in my teardown. And we know the processors are also different... But does it matter? How much different is the Exynos Note 20 Ultra when compared to the Qualcomm Note 20 Ultra? And why is there more than one version in the first place?!

    You should just exchange the motherboards from one to another phone. Not to tear the cooling sistem out..

    You are wrong about Samsung's choice to mix up their suppliers. As one youtuber recently pointed out, "having a single vendor for any particular item in the production of your own products makes you that suppliers bitch". Samsung can not afford to be completely reliant on a single chip fab. And this doesn't even go into the whole quantity issue.

    Samsung should absolutly have to tell you what processor is in the phone , but because they are not both sold in the same market it makes it a grey area that Samsung is taking advantage of obviously. People from the EU are buying this phone after watching the perfomance of a better phone... Not fair, I'd return my phone... Too bad, I've always liked Samsung:(

    Hmm, I have known for some time that Samsung change internal components depending which region there are selling into. ie cheaper components in India, more premium components in the US/Euro. In all honesty, I look at my phone as a complete package, I am well aware the Exnos chips is a bit sluggish. but even so I don't really see any complaints. I do hope that the Exnos becomes true competition to Snapdragon, as the more choices OEM's have the better for us all. I wonder how Samsung is doing with AMD Radeon IP.

Samsung I think has morphed into apple style territory which will be the nail in their coffin... greed will alway come with

    This is why I went iPhone. Even tho I’m USA all day, companies have really lost their touch with customer satisfaction and keeping people with their platform. You never know if your getting their top line model, or budget phone. But other countries can’t afford the snapdragon, and I guess it’s nice to offer a little cheaper phone, but the features are the same as last years model, so what the point of upgrading? 120hz is the only plus. And my pc is 165hz so I mean, if I want pc I use pc, I need phone to do phone stuff, and do it good.

    Samsung has been a piece of shit for years.. no surprise most though, companies are.. Look up their lawsuits, from Dishwashers catching fire, Fridge Ice-trays being sold new and faulty. We all remember their phone battery issues right? Well how about buying other makes of phones, force Samsung to give us a solid product for our money, rather than just adding complexity (not innovation). TL;DR - Each time you buy a phone, Ignore brands and buy the one that is best for you. If you're honest with yourself, most of you will be sticking well clear of the +$1000 phones and probably go with something half the cost!

    You’d think the phone companies would try a little harder with their phones. I’ve been watching Jerry for a little while & recently MrWhoseTheBoss and I’m certainly going to look at their vids before buying any new phone. I know a person or two that likes to have the latest & greatest so I’ll let them be the test subjects before I buy any phone from now on.

  • Scaryygarryy

    There is another major difference between the two. That's the capability to unlock your bootloader and root the device. On the exynos it's straight forward and on the Qualcomm it's impossible. There is a company that claims they can unlock the Qualcomm devices bootloader but it's very pricey. For that phone I believe it would be $150 US dollars. And who knows if they can actually or not? One of the first things you see on their site is a refund disclaimer stating that you have to fit a very specific criteria to get a refund and really It could be impossible to meet. They could say it's an error on your part that it didn't work and refuse your refund. I've been using samsung phones most of my life now. But I think instead of upgrading from my galaxy s10 to the newest device I'll get something else. The root capability is the whole reason I use andoid devices. If I can't do it myself at home with my own PC like I've been doing for year's then I don't want it. I'm not going to gamble over $100 on some third party companies claims just to get my device how I want it.

    I was thinking about getting a galaxy A51 or A71 and I asked the sales person about the difference in their processors and he couldn't even tell me what processors they had and just kept telling me that it didn't matter because they're both so much better than my 5 year old phone. Thanks idiot, I know they're better than my old phone, but I stil want to pick out the best new phone, not just any phone that's better than the old cheap pos I have. And they're both selling for the same price right now, so I couldn't decide based on price. I'm kind of thinking about the Pixel 4a 5g now since it cost $150 less than those phones.

    Not one normal user will ever see or feel any difference. Still, there is no logic in putting the Snapdragon in at all. Samsung can just use Exynos for all their devices. But I guess they are pressured by the US on the matter.

    True. They should label the cpu for each model rather than hide the spec. Data will never lie. However, we should appreciate company investigate hardware, like amd, mtk, ati and broadcom etc. The investment of hardware or any engineering research always come with high money and not alway get any result. Like what u mention if AMD quit the market as they cannot compare with Intel in their early cpu war. Now the awesome ryzen will never be true .

    The Galaxy S10 was my last Samsung. They lost me. I really didn't want it when I got it but my S8 was having pixel issues so I got it. The phone worked for about a year and then went downhill fast. I had to restart the phone if I wanted to send or recieve calls. It would say I had 4g LTE but no cellular service. The fingerprint scanner worked half the time. The speaker was messed up so if I was on a call it would sound like the person was under water or was very far away. No water damage. I ended up getting the OnePlus 8T +5G. I'd rather not have 5G but it is what it is. The OnePlus 8T is amazing. Everything is so much smoother and sounds better. I never keep my phone to max capacity on the storage and I almost never take it out of the case unless i was cleaning it or taking out the microsd card.

    *I do not work for Samsung and I do believe snapdragon chips are generally better* I have to say this has become a huge issue even though it's not really dramatic. I own a S20 FE exynos 990 and my friend owns the 5G S865 version. In geekbench 5 and on android 11, the exynos is ahead by 9% at single core and -17% in multi core. Add them up and that's 8% of a difference. It's apparent but not life changing. Also the S865 runs cooler under a lot of stress. In real life scenarios? No difference at all. The only problematic thing about exynos is battery life. That's at least 15% worse. Maybe even 20%. But the 4G FE exynos is also 15% cheaper than the snapdragon version. The sam e goes for note 20 ultra in Europe. Exynos is at least 10% cheaper. So Samsung sells a slightly interior product at a lower price, what's the issue then? Also up until the S10 Lineup the exynos were no worse than Qualcomm or even slightly better. So personally I can't really see why this is such an issue other than click bait. *I do believe you do an excellent work jerry, I just don't agree with these kind of videos* Peace!
