While the war between the Exynos 990 and Snapdragon 865 models of the Samsung Galaxy S20 rages on, it's been taken for granted that the Snapdragon models are much better than their Exynos counterparts. Apparently, though, the Exynos Galaxy S20 phones have an advantage over the Snapdragon models in one rather important aspect: photography.
Low-light photography, to be exact. An owner has taken to Twitter to offer comparing shots between the Exynos and Snapdragon Galaxy S20 models in low-light, with the Exynos phone coming out on top, and by a significant margin. The user, Liu Chong, was also the one who first pointed out the Exynos 990'S worse performance/watt SPEC numbers, and also published the gaming comparison videos.
The shots by the two phones show the Exynos S20 delivering better dynamic range and considerably more detail in poor lighting conditions. The Exynos shots just look a whole lot better, we must say.
A few weeks ago, it was revealed that the Exynos 990-powered Galaxy S20 phones used an identical but different main rear camera sensor: a Samsung-made ISOCELL S5K2LD versus the Sony IMX555 on the Snapdragon models. While the public may have immediately jumped to the conclusion that the Snapdragon and Sony combo would perform better, that appears to not be the case at all. A rare win for Samsung, but a win nonetheless.
Contrary to what other YouTubers has said, exynos s20+ actually takes better low light photos than its snapdragon counterpart. Check out these night mode shots. Exynos lef, sd right. Exynos top, sd bottom. The amount of details retained by the exynos s20+ is insane. pic.twitter.com/lTzRGbNEGN— Liu Chong (@lch920619x) April 2, 2020
