Conclusion.

From the table of comparison above, due to the available data provided by Qualcomm for the snapdragon 888 as against that of the specification provided by Samsung for the exynos-2100, I will feel more confident getting a smartphone with sd 888 over that of the Exynos 2100.

Nonetheless, other than the above illustration, the Exynos 2100 seems to match the snapdragon 888 spec for spec and even has a higher frequency speed of 2.9GHz as against that of the sd 888 which is 2.8.

Personally, I don’t think you can go wrong if a flagship performance is what you are looking for, and you indeed got a device with either of these premium chipset present.

With this comparison, I hope you have an above average when picking your next smartphone base on proper knowledge.
