Android authority antutu score on sd 865 is 547,698. Phone arena antutu on exynos is 524,200... its time to get lg or phone with expendable memory.

Every iteration of the S series introduces speed bump, it doesn’t really matter to me if it is slower than SD 865, as long as it is faster than the previous generation SD 855, it is good enough for me. In fact, a lag of 1 or 2 secs is minor. If really want a brazing fast experience, you shouldn’t go for Android, go for iPhone instead. Speed tests of previous year iPhone consistently reveals better performance over the latest Samsung flagship.

I hesitated to move over to other brands because OneUI and 120Hz refresh rate are the key killer features for me. Next, is the sense of gripping the phone, it makes me feel that I am in control (talking about form factor of S20 plus, it is comfortable to hold a phone with such big screen) and then it is the higher resale value of Samsung phones as compared to the other Android smartphones in SG. I had tried replacing my iPhone Max with S10 plus but I didn’t manage to get success because of various factors - the screen size, the butterly smooth experience when swiping, the familiar left, right and up gestures of iOS. OneUI is simply marvellous, if not, better. It is still to be seen on whether I can totally get rid of my urge to go back to the iPhone.

I feel that if you are a frequent smartphone changer, you shouldn’t go for export set. It will be harder to sell later, not to mention fetch higher price than the local set. People want warranty. The longer the warranty, the better selling price you get.

i dont think i will use 120Hz and strain the battery even .. 60 Hz is good enough for average users.

A little difference in CPU speed from past gen and current gen will be good enough for average users too...

I don’t mind Exynos, I tested gaming on my Note10+ and it’s fine. No lag or whatsoever. What pissed me off is that Samsung didn’t release 256 / 512 GB in SG which result in me not getting the phone at launch.

It’s true iPhone is better in terms of speed and performance, that’s why my main phone is iPhone instead of Samsung.

Even for the Tab S6, I will get 256 GB instead of the 128GB.

Many people once try 120hz and never go back to 60hz. U will feel the phone is slow after that. Same goes for oled screen, if go back lcd screen will see colours not vibrant anymore

hope the can find a solution (not just doing shortcut by increasing battery capacity) to make phone last longer with higher refresh rate and 5g being the trend soon.

Does anyone knows if the demo S20/S20 Ultra sets have 120hz turned on? I tried it and I cannot really see that much difference.

Because you have the Singapore set. Update comes to Singapore rarely because of extensive modem tuning.
