Razer Phone beats Samsung Galaxy S8+ in benchmarks

Better cooling, higher clock or something else

One thing that caught our eye during Razer's presentation is the fact that it managed to beat Samsung's Galaxy S8+ in plenty of benchmarks - at least according to Razer's own slides.

Although Razer's CEO, Min-Liang Tan, did not specifically say which version of the Galaxy S8+ it was testing, either the Snapdragon 835 one or the Exynos 8895, it did show a slide where the Razer Phone beat Samsung's Galaxy S8+ in quite a few benchmarks, including GFXBench Car Chase and Manhattan 3.1, PCMark Video Playback test, 3DMark Slingshot and Basemark OS II.

During the presentation, Razer's CEO noted that the phone comes with a special cooling system with the same thermal engineers that were working on the Razer Blade notebook so that might be a culprit behind higher scores as it is possible that the Snapdragon 835 SoC in Razer Phone kept its Kryo CPU cores running at high clock without throttling.

The Razer Phone also has more RAM than the Galaxy S8+, so that could have pushed those benchmark scores a bit higher.

In any case, it will be interesting to see how it fares in the same benchmarks when reviews start showing up and how cool the phone actually is.
