Exynos again…

Commanding unit in all three new Samsung models S21 series is chip set Exynos 2100. A factory processor that the Korean company manufactures itself and which installs phones sold on the European continent. In markets such as the USA, Canada, China and South Korea, new Samsung chips are available from Qualcomm.

The South Korean-based manufacturer was tasked with correcting the failure of last year, when not only did Exynos’ own chips not brutally catch up with Snapdragons from Qualcomm, but they also had problems with heating and energy management. It all resulted in ugly case and negative criticism of the parties not only the professional public.

Promises, Promises

This year, Samsung had a chance to be repaired. Already according to previews of the new Exynos the Asian mole took the lament to heart and the new Exynos 2100 was supposed to be an absolute asphalt shredder – according to several sources comparable in performance to the competition Snapdragonem 888, which can be found, for example, in the superphone introduced after Christmas Xiaomi Mi 11.

But promises are often mistakes. After they came out yesterday first news review from Samsung, we can also confirm that the promised miracle does not take place, the wow effect simply did not come. During the testing of the basic Galaxy S21, we performed an AnTuT benchmark six times together, but mostly always with the same result – slightly below or slightly above 600 thousand points.

The most powerful? No, but that’s enough

For comparison, the most powerful machine according to AnTuTu is recently introduced Vivo X60 Pro +which collected over 770 thousand points. However, other pieces also excel in the rankings for December, such as the aforementioned Xiaomi Mi 11 with a point gain of 708,000 points. Furthermore, for example, Mate 40 Pro + (702 thousand points), Mate 40 Pro (686 thousand points) or Xiaomi Mi 10T, which took home 666 thousand points. The new Samsung base is well below these values.

TIP: The bloated Exynos 2100 is coming. Will he be able to banish the taste of his predecessor?

But performance is not a big issue. Despite the lousy value of the point gain in one benchmark, it is a machine packed with power and is rightly called a real flagship. However, the problems will be bought elsewhere and again, the recently praised Exynos 2100 is to blame.

During testing, we found that with the heating, the phone is miserable again, although better than last year ‘s generation. When compared to the latest iPhones, Huawei Mate 40 Pro, OnePlus 8T or Galaxy S20 Fan Edition, the heating of the Galaxy S21 is really significant.

The view of the editors

Samsung’s flagship for 2021 has really succeeded. But if the Exynos 2100 is the repair we imagined, it certainly isn’t. Koreans may have to undergo another wave of criticism to understand that European customers are not inferior to American, Chinese or Korean, and they deserve a more powerful and better Snapdragon 888…
