That’s not much of an improvement over the Exynos 2100‘s multi-core score of 3,263 and nowhere near a breakthrough in performance. The CPU numbers here aren’t even better than a two-year-old iPhone 11 with an A13 processor.

Particularly when you’re spending a thousand dollars plus for a new handset that claims to be “game-changing.” More here.
In the real world, the majority care little for processing power and that is fully understandable.
