I do like Samsung as a brand, but I think the Samsung mobile division in Singapore specifically has gotten too complacent and treating Singapore consumers shabbily. Clearly seen from their business decisions to constantly give SG consumers the lower end Exynos processor (even HK and Taiwan are getting Snapdragon, why not us), and with the S20 launch giving us low storage options whilst still continuing to charge premium prices. Not to mention slower updates relative to others in the region.

Nobody wants to complain for complaining sake, but it does serve its purpose of getting more consumers to realise they are getting the short end of the stick. This hopefully will cause more to vote with their feet and hurting Samsung SG where it hurts - in their sales numbers. This will inevitably cause them to offer more competitive products and prices - benefiting us consumers in the long term. And that is a good thing.
Then wouldn’t it be better to do so at a more effective and targeted platform where it can do significant impact Samsung fb/global petition etc? There’s one global petition ongoing and I’ve gladly signed it there. Simple and more effective.

Try observing the thread contents among different Samsung threads (ratio of complaints from non users to users feedback). Makes ppl wonder the motives of usual disgruntled non users and their sarcasms. Some have pointed out, there are users in here who wishes to discuss more about troubleshooting, tips and updates. Unfortunately the comments here are mainly nothing useful for users. Just known fact spams where ppl who have the habit of reading forum and doing research would already know.

Telling them off (poor comprehension ppl would see it as debate when it’s not even about it) would automatically be labeled as “Exynos defenders” when they couldn’t even produce evidences that anyone ever said Exynos is better (irony?). These ppl either couldn’t see the main point (of what can you do abt it rather just whining) or simply refuses to acknowledge their habitual addictions.

Cheers.

Just saw this and wanted to post too. Exynos GPU still rubbish. Even the reviewer said omg when he saw 14 fps
Well, Samsung (and Huawei) use the Mali GPU core which is essentially from ARM itself. Qualcomm SD custom design their own GPU - Adrenos.

120 hz on the samsung phone really elevate the user experience man. i play around with 60hz and can really feel the difference in the smoothness. Hope the patch for QHD 120Hz can be release soon. Monitoring my battery life for now. So far so good.

Wahahaha, this has become a joke. That 2nd last gpu test was soooo laggy on the exynos set. I just laugh at samsung's fail. Don't forget SG only have 8 GB RAM for the S20+ model. More fails from samsung SG.

There's a rumour going around that samsung disable 120hz in QHD, because exynos chip not supporting it. SD support it, but samsung need to be fair to both consumers. BUt since now we all know how bad exynos chip is, i think this rumour is true...imagine running 120hz in qhd all the time, confirm battery will run warm in exynos

Not all people play hardcore games! some use phone for normal daily uses and light photography depends on individual lifestyle and hobby if their budget permits..

I myself don't stick my eyes non-stop on the phone everywhere i go habitually ...

But can your Huawei use transit without unlocking? I'd be more frustrated having to unlock every time want to use, which is at least 4 times per day. I'd be sadder if I had to unlock every time need to tap than seeing 40% left on my phone every day. So it really depends on where your priorities lie. If you no need to use transit then better to get SD.
U mean to tap for mrt? I drive so wouldn't know..

It's just Samsung on paper has the specs to make it such an awesome phone. 5000mah battery in such a svelte package.. But they are doing what Apple does to isheep also, screwing you over to make you constantly upgrade..

those who cannot accept exynos can go for other brands. No need to argue here.

No need to do hardcore gaming. Just by taking some photos the phone gets warm (slightly hot) easily. It happened on my Note8 and current S10. I am still sticking with Samsung coz I am used to Samsung's UI and eco-system. Samsung SG is really disappointing!!
