There are two versions of the Galaxy S7 edge and yours has worse battery life

Galaxy S7 Edge Battery Life Snapdragon Vs Exynos

What difference does a mobile chipset make? Quite a lot, especially if we’re looking at differences between the two versions of the Galaxy S7.

You see, Samsung this year released two different versions of both the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge — the version we get here in the United States comes with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor while the version released in other parts of the world comes with Samsung’s own Exynos 8890 processor. We’ve already seen that the Exynos-equipped Galaxy S7 is faster than the Snapdragon-equipped Galaxy S7, and now some new tests have shown that the Exynos-equipped Galaxy S7 edge has stronger battery life than the Snapdragon-equipped Galaxy S7 edge.

GSMArena has done some extensive testing on both versions of the Galaxy S7 edge and has found that the Exynos version delivers nearly two additional hours of talk time, over three additional hours of video playback, and nearly three-and-a-half additional hours of web browsing. This is a pretty stark difference and is almost certainly due to each chipset’s power efficiencies — after all, both devices come with identical 3,600mAh batteries, so there’s no other reason we should expect to see this much difference in performance between the two versions.

Of course, neither version of the Galaxy S7 edge delivers poor battery life. But if you have the opportunity to get an imported Galaxy S7 edge that comes with the Exynos 8890, you shouldn’t hesitate to grab it since it will deliver noticeably stronger performance.
