Both the UleFone Armor 2 and the Samsung Galaxy S7/S7 Edge have the same GPU: a Mali T880.
When playing the exact same 2160p@30fps and 1080p@120fps video files, the Galaxy S7 Edge plays it smoothly, without any frame skipping or lagging.
The UleFone Armor 2 however:
- Native media player: plays it with stuttering and frame skipping (but smooth audio).
- VLC for Android (with enforced hardware acceleration): Video freezes after first frame, while the audio keeps playing.
But the Armor 2 plays 1440p@30fps perfectly smoothly.
Side note: The S7 Edge however even plays 2160p@60fps footage smoothly, a framerate it can't even record at at 2160p (because decoding obviously needs less computing power than encoding).
Obviously, these devices have different CPU's (Exynos 8890/Snapdragon 820 vs. Helio P25), but isn't the GPU mainly responsible for video playback (and recording)?
If both devices are equipped with the exact same GPU, how come only the S7 plays the 2160p videos smoothly? Shouln't both devices play it identically?
(Storage speed is certainly not the reason, because even storage speeds of early-2010s's phones are by far faster than the bitrates of those sample videos.)
