Which One Do I Have?

There is a huge difference between the Snapdragon and the Exynos. If you see all the points including the GPU, speed, battery life, photo editing, video editing and more. You will notice that the Snapdragon highly outperforms the Exynos processor. 

Many users consider the Snapdragon to be ideal. Especially for all the Galaxy S10s. So, which one did you get? Unfortunately, you can’t see your processor’s name from the “Settings” menu on any phone. Instead, you will have to rely on an app. 

In this particular case, the CPU-Z app can be useful. This is a free app you can download from the App Store. It is pretty handy too. The CPU-Z is a tool for identifying your system information on your device. That means you can check the battery status, capacity, device brand, system, and more. 

It is pretty easy to use and it doesn’t take too much storage space. Since you can’t see the name of your processor on the Galaxy S10, we suggest you download this app. Once you do that, you can find the information you need. So, here is what you should do to tell which processor you have on the phone. 

Step 1

 If you’ve downloaded the CPU-Z app, you will see the icon pop up on your home screen. Launch it. 

Step 2

This is the CPU-Z app. As you can see, the main menu is the top bar right under the app’s name. You can navigate the menus by swiping right or left. You can see the system information, device, battery, and more. To find the name of the processor you are using, go to the main page of the app. The one named “SOC”. It is the first menu on the left side of the screen. 

In “Architecture”, you can find the information you are looking for. In this particular case, we have the Exynos processor. You might have the Snapdragon. But, the only way to find out is to see for yourself.


That’s it! Now you know how to see the name of the processor you have on your Galaxy S10.


Depending on where you live, you will probably get a different processor. Certain regions will have one of these processors. But, if you want to know which one you have, you will need to download an app to get that information.
