It s a cross platform benchmarking tool that includes a number of tests to measure memory and processor performance. This also specifically tests the processor performance both single and multi-core. Here, the Galaxy S7 logged a score of 2,140 and 6,243 in single-core and multi-core tests, respectively. The LG G5 logged a score of 2,293 in single-core test and 5,289 in multi-core tests. The HTC 10, on the other hand, logged a score of 2,222 in single-core test and 5,030 in multi-core test. If we look at the overall score, the Galaxy S7 once again takes a lead, especially in the multi-core performance.

AndroBench

Next, we ran AndroBench to test the system read/write performance. The test includes writing and reading a set of data to and from the internal storage. The LG G5 logged a score of 464MB/s in sequential read and 140MB/s on sequential write test. The Galaxy S7 logged a score of 483MB/s and 141MB/s respectively. The HTC 10, on the other hand, logged a score of 286MB/second in sequential read and 68MB/s in sequential write tests. While the LG G5 and Galaxy S7 perform better, the HTC 10 doesn t perform up to the mark here, and the margin is way more than the competition.

3D Mark

The 3D Mark test is specifically designed to test the graphics and gaming performance of the smartphone. We ran the Sling Shot test where the HTC 10 logged a score of 2,353, the LG G5 logged a score of 2,470, whereas the Galaxy S7 logged a score of 2,131. Here, LG G5 takes a marginal lead compared to the HTC 10 and the Galaxy S7.

As we can see in the benchmark scores, the Galaxy S7 performs almost better in most benchmark tests, whereas the LG G5 and HTC 10 stand close. So, those having doubts about Exynos 8890 s capabilities, here you have it. Samsung seems to have worked a lot to up its game with Exynos 8890 chipset compared to Qualcomm s Snapdragon 820.
