First Exynos 9825 Benchmarks for Galaxy Note 10 Plus Disappoint; Slower Than Galaxy S10 Plus in Few Tests
When Samsung made the Exynos 9825, the company’s first-ever 7nm EUV SoC official, it was marketed as a game-changer for users seeking a combination of both performance and efficiency. Sadly, Samsung’s claims were not highlighted in the first Exynos 9825 benchmarks, as the Galaxy Note 10 Plus fails to one-up even the Galaxy S10 Plus, which is outfitted with the Korean giant’s 8nm Exynos 9820. However, as you read through the latest numbers, you’ll understand that things might improve in the near future.
Galaxy Note 10 Plus Loses to Galaxy S10 Plus in Geekbench but Edges out the Latter in Other Tests
Before we show you the first official Exynos 9825 benchmarks, GSMArena states that it carried out the tests on a pre-production version of the Galaxy Note 10 Plus. This revelation suggests that the publication will carry out additional and more comprehensive tests in the future, and after commercial units of the flagship are released in various markets, Samsung should launch a more polished version of its software, which could improve these scores.
Regardless, this is a preliminary look at the performance of the Galaxy Note 10 Plus, and the Exynos 9825 benchmarks reveal the phablet is slower than the Galaxy S10 Plus in Geekbench. The smartphone with the monstrous 6.8-inch screen obtains only 4466 points in the single-core test results, along with 9751 points in the multi-core run, both of which are slower than what the Galaxy S10 Plus obtained. Even on the P30 Pro’s performance mode, the Note 10 Plus fails to beat it, making it for a disappointing first-impression for users wanting to witness unrivaled numbers.
However, when we come to the 3DMark tests, the Note 10 Plus is slightly faster than the S10 Plus but slower than what OnePlus 7 Pro is able to achieve, which shouldn’t be surprising. In additional tests, the difference is less pronounced. Sadly, GSMArena wasn’t able to test out a device outfitted with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 855 Plus, so we won’t be able to show you how two of the fastest mobile SoCs in the Android smartphone space are able to perform against one another.
Like we stated earlier, just because an early look at the Exynos 9825 benchmarks are a disappointing one doesn’t mean there’s not a silver lining in all of this. The Galaxy Note 10 and Galaxy Note 10 Plus are still on pre-order, with retail units at least a week away from reaching customers. We definitely hope to see improved results in the future, and we’ll relay those updates to our readers shortly, so stay tuned.
