Dual-core Snapdragon S4 confirmed for Verizon Galaxy S III

Dual-core Snapdragon S4 confirmed for Verizon Galaxy S III - read the full textLooks like people in the US willing to grab the upcoming Galaxy S III won't be treated to its quad-core Exynos variant. Instead, latest evidence points to a dual-core Snapdragon S4 powering the Galaxy S III for Verizon. This is further confirmed by early NenaMark2 benchmarks, which show a Galaxy...

Seems most nooby here doesn't know that S4 is a next generation A15 equivalent processor.

This is just like choosing between a quadcore A8 CPU vs dualcore A9 CPU.


I just want to say that even if android is running on quad. Unfortunately u dont have even single app to utilize it and also.

I really wonder that benchmarks really reveal anything. Real world results are different.
Last time i tried playing a game on Galaxy S and really lagged and then i tried same game on iPod touch 2009 Model which ran smooth.I am really done with all those benchmarks.

Android only good on paper but windows/iOS really good in real life even with low specs.
Sure u can say windows phone is bad but samsung and HTC also makes them because its a nice polished OS running on low spec hardware.

Unless google really implement stuff , dual or quad makes no difference and also no offence that Galaxy s3 or HTC one X comes with OEM bloatware unlike nexus series which has pure android experience and also perfectly integrated because google launches new OS everytime along with new phone.

Galaxy s2 showed lot of difference in benchmark after ICS uodate and people got that update recently and some of regions still doesnt have updates. Pathetic OEMs rushing to release phones instead of making them perfect and then releasing.

I'm waiting for that Tmo Note. If anyone knows where I can get a AT&T Note Off Contract for cheap, let me know. Please and Thank You. :)

Knowing Tmo, they're probably going to try to charge $700 off contract for a almost year old device still and it'll most likely have no updates over the previous Note.

They really should use the A15, so much faster and LTE supported.

Fragmentation 101.

Why they still come out many phones when they can't even provide simple updates to older phones. Oh well.

Anywho it doesn't matter, basically the difference would be noticeable in battery consumption. Usage-wise unless you are a heavy-ass user you will feel the difference, other than that, nope. Even 1Ghz 1st-gen is fine to do many things, just not able to multi-task many things compared to now.

I guess since this version has a Dual Core processor, it's not worthy anymore.

Thus the logic of Android fanboys. LOL

This just takes away any advantage the Galaxy S III has over any other phone. Optimus LTE2 FTW!

But the S4 is SO much faster and better than the Crackexynos, just too many ppl are falling into "OMG i have a quad-core phone" just for bragging rights, why not just say u have a ps3 cell processor inside lol
