For those still hoping for Exynos 1440p 120Hz to come

> In the 120Hz modes, both Exynos variants of the S20+ and S20 Ultra showcases some pretty terrible battery life figures. For the S20U, the Exynos variant here falls behind the Snapdragon unit by a whopping 27% - all likely due to the vast power efficiency deficit of the Exynos SoC. In absolute numbers, these are amongst the worst figures we’ve tested in recent years, coming near to the disaster that was the Exynos 9810 S9 series.




Don't selective quote bit and pieces leh to make Exynos to appear to look "superior" and leave out the most important parts.

Here's the concluding statement from Anandtech.

For people whose purchase decisions is heavily influenced by the battery life of the devices, I think it’s safe to say that the Exynos S20 variants will likely end up as underwhelming. Power users in particular using heavy apps will see very disappointing results – I would likely recommend either importing a Snapdragon unit, or just outright skipping this generation altogether.



Of course we have the usual few who have excellent battery life, best in the market that goes against general consensus.
Guess the truth hurts for people. Normal for people unhappy after buying exynos phone then here mentioning its bad. Do be gentle with these people kena chop carrot by Samsung.

BTW guys who want to get S20 Korea sets, Taobao got a few sellers selling 256GB Korean sets, about 6000Yuan for the 256gb S20+, can just use service like ezbuy sensitive air to ship over
Take note the tax/gst as the value is over 400 value.

It will around 200..

S20 plus SOT. Should be able to achieve around 7hrs.



The drop is pretty linear. Around 7hrs SOT for my usage, not the best but above average for me.

For those who order from taobao, will there be any shipping delays due to china lockdown?

Feel like giving up with importing in. The one i ordered from qoo10 shipping delayed, if delay so long phone value will drop even further then no point ordering retail price

I am just waiting for S20 price to drop. M1 already selling "S20+ at S20 price" which is a joke, clearly they have too much stock of S20+. Drop S20 price by $200 and add some freebies or CIS discount, and I will consider.
