Contest: Win a Samsung Galaxy Note from the Exynos Team – (Updated: Winner Picked)

galaxy note

The Samsung Exynos team reached out to us a couple of weeks ago because they not only love the DL community, but they know how much we love the power of their processors in phones. To say that we drooled a bit over benchmarks and the performance of the Galaxy SII last year would be a massive understatement. In fact, the Exynos dual-core chip that debuted at last year’s MWC inside the SGS2 set the bar so high that I’m still not sure that many of the current dual-core chips even compare. And what I mean by that is the Galaxy Note that sports a dual-core Exynos, benchmarks higher than almost any other phone on the market, right now. It’s a beast of a chip, folks.

So with their Exynos 4412 quad-core chip being demoed a week ago and their next-gen quad-core 5250 sampling now, you can bet that there will be a hefty Exynos mark put on 2012. There has been a lot of talk about competitors’ chipsets already making their way into phones and tablets, but understand that when Samsung’s next Exynos SoCs are ready, we’ll likely be impressed, again. And who knows, we may just see one of them this week at Mobile World Congress. 


Update:  We have a winner!

Joe Case, who demands Exynos because power + power management is a must.


To help continue the buzz that the Exynos processor created at last year’s MWC, the Exynos team would like to hand out a Galaxy Note to one of our fantastic community members. All they want to know is why you demand to have Exynos chips in your phones. That’s it. Is it because of power management? Their tendency to have next-gen GPUs for gaming? The massive power? What is it? Drop a comment below with a reason why you prefer their processors to others and you have a chance to win one of the hottest (and biggest) phones on the market today.

Prize:  Galaxy Note

Instructions:  In the comments, let DL and the Exynos team know why you demand Exynos in your phones and tablets.

Winner:  The contest will run from the time of this post until the end of Mobile World Congress, March 1, 2PM Pacific.

    Exynos because history has shown that this processor was pretty optimized for the Samsung Galaxy SII series. Not only this, but it also had amazing battery life for such a huge screen. Keep on keeping on with Exynos! Forgot to mention the number one thing. IT’S A DAMN FAST PROCESSOR!!

    I demand Samsung Exynos in my smartphone because I am looking for only the best. The best speeds and processing to run HD games. I want it to make me want to hesitate to reach for my tablet or laptop because the gaming is just as good and even more portable! Phew, what a mouthful. But yeah, I need to get rid of my prison of an Apple product I’m attached to for something that will blow everything else out of the water.

    To be honest I feel that Samsung has the best products on the market and it all starts with the inside of the product.  Not only are the Android products fantastic (And I do love the Exynos Processors) But the rest of there lineup is just as fantastic.  I recommend Samsung to everyone I talk to.  Love There products…….

    I am going to simply say that they make the best processors.

  • I demand Exynos processors because my international Galaxy S II is the fastest phone I have ever used, hands down. Which is why I won’t by a Note through AT&T…

  • Samsung has always had a good idea of performance, but that is taken to the next level with the Exynos chips.  I cannot wait!
