Samsung arrives with new phones Samsung Galaxy A54 5G but forgot to resolve old overheating issue in its Exynos processor
This time Samsung has arrived with two phones in the A series which are Galaxy A54 5G and Galaxy A34 5G. These phones were introduced in the global market on 15th March and will be available for buyers in India from March 28th. But ahead of it, a reviewer has reviewed the Galaxy A54 phone on the YouTube channel HFV Unbox to give an insight into the features that it brings. He has tested the performance of the phone on some of the certified scales that will help you to have a better understanding of it.
The successor to the Samsung Galaxy A53, the Galaxy A54 5G, has arrived with an upgraded processor, and needless to say, an increase in price as well. We looked up the price of the Galaxy A53 5G and found it available for around Rs. 33,000, whereas the Galaxy A54 5G is going to be priced at Rs. 40,000.
Regarding the processor, the Galaxy A54 5G comes equipped with Samsung’s latest Exynos 1380 processor. The phone’s performance was reported to be satisfactory by a YouTuber. However, during the CPU throttling test, it was revealed that the phone’s temperature reached as high as 47.3 degrees.
The YouTuber discovered that while gaming with low graphics and 90 fps, the phone’s temperature rose to 47 degrees Celsius within just 20 to 30 minutes of gameplay. He then moved on to the camera, where he found that the 50 MP rear OIS camera performed well, but the low-light mode was not as effective due to poor image processing. Additionally, he mentioned in the video that the phone showed jittering while multitasking and using heavy apps.
Therefore, this phone may not perform well in terms of multitasking, which is a crucial aspect in today’s time. The YouTuber did not put much faith in AnTuTu scores, but the scores were still not up to par. He mentioned, “I know some people don’t believe in AnTuTu scores, and neither do I, but they provide an idea about the phone’s performance.”
Samsung’s Exynos processor has had an issue with overheating in the past. As a user, it is natural to hope that the company would resolve this problem in the next model. However, the issue has not been resolved in the latest model, and it continues to follow the same trend as before.
Overheating problems can cause performance degradation and energy waste. We tried to investigate the issue further to understand the possible reasons behind it. According to Business Korea, both Exynos and Qualcomm processors use ARM ISAs (Instruction Set Architectures), which could be the core problem.
The ISA is a model that defines how the CPU is controlled by software. However, the same ARM ISA is used in Apple’s chips, which do not suffer from the same overheating problem. Some reports have suggested that the issue could be related to optimization. Apple solves the issue by collaborating with ARM ISA and tuning its performance for the best use of iOS.
