I have just read a pretty long, for its topic, article in which the writer complains about how the North American Galaxy S8 is worse than it’s global counterpart. Long story short, yes, it is slightly worse. GSM Arena performed a multitude of benchmark tests on both devices, and in almost all of them the global version of the phone was faster than its US counterpart. Why? Probably because of the difference in CPU’s. American Samsung Galaxy S8 is packing Snapdragon 835, while global edition of the phone comes with slightly faster Exynos 8895. That is all.
