You told us: You like what you see from the Exynos 2200 on paper
Samsung finally announced the Exynos 2200 this week, being the processor that will power some of the company’s flagship phones in 2022. It’s also the first major smartphone processor to receive an AMD GPU, marking a new era of sorts for the Korean brand.
We wanted to know what readers thought of the new processor’s specs though, posting a poll within our announcement article. Here’s how you voted in this particular survey.
What do you think of the Exynos 2200 on paper?
Almost 1,000 votes were tallied in this poll as of writing, and it turns out that 77.41% of respondents think Samsung’s new processor looks hot on paper.
It’s not hard to see why people voted like this, as the Exynos 2200 offers a powerful octa-core CPU in theory (one Cortex-X2, three Cortex-A710, and four Cortex-A510), potentially beefy graphics, and some impressive multimedia capabilities.

Meanwhile, 22.59% of polled readers reckon that the Exynos 2200 doesn’t look like a hot prospect on paper. At least one reader comment suggests that Samsung has failed to deliver on the promise of its Exynos chipsets for several years now.
We can understand this stance, as the Exynos 2100 and Exynos 990 were both inferior to the equivalent Qualcomm processor when it came to the GPU in particular. Samsung is pinning its hopes on AMD graphics, but Qualcomm’s new Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 has made a major stride too.
Either way, we’re keen to see real-world results once Exynos 2200-powered Samsung phones hit the market.
- Kira: Finally !! The greater the competition,the better it is for the customers.
- 🇦🇺Marshall: I don’t get all the “not” votes. Any Exynos overhaul is welcome news.
- Nikita M: Pixel pathetic after this
- Avieshek: So, it can’t really record at 120fps for 4K just disables HDR – no wonder it can’t do 8K at 60fps, missed opportunity to support VVC/h.266 and is where I fear Snapdragon may have better responses making the news with battery efficiency though the setup is literally the same even with MediaTek.
- I simply do not care any more. Competitive Exynos is nice and all, but considering pretty much every other SOC is reaching for pretty much the same efficiency, I am more curious, if we ever see a step forward software wise. Having a beast SOC in our phones and tablets certainly feels good, being able to use said power would feel even better… not to mention Samsung track record of failing Exynos promises since 2015.
- sachouba: I’m eager to see the power consumption of this SoC. At a time when virtually any SoC is powerful enough for most applications, it’s time to see whether it is power-efficient enough for a smartphone to last at least 1.5 days – unlike most Snapdragon 888-powered smartphones.
