The Samsung Exynos 990 is not performing as one would expect for a top-tier chip. In addition to not performing up to standards, it got beaten by a midrange MediaTek chipset in a PUBG mobile test.
How bad is it? It’s so bad that users are petitioning Samsung to stop using its in-house processors on its mobile devices. It’s so bad that even the mid-range Redmi Note 8 Pro can beat the Exynos 990-powered Samsung Galaxy S20+ in gaming, and there’s a video to prove it.
YouTube user Chong Liu recently uploaded a video comparing the gaming performance of Redmi Note 8 Pro and Samsung Galaxy S20+ over a gaming session of PUBG Mobile to see how their framerate, battery and temperature would fare.

The high-end Galaxy S20+ (Php55,990) went fine at first, but eventually started to struggle keeping a smooth framerate. It also ended hotter and consumed more battery power.
On the other hand, the budget-friendly Redmi Note 8 Pro (Php11,490) that’s powered by Mediatek Helio G90T, meanwhile, was able to sustain its 60 fps performance all throughout the game.
