The main concern is still battery life. Will it end up with one day 2 charges?

Remember when Samsung first launched the 4" phones, people were screaming that 4" is too big and 3.5" is the best ever possible size? Now that iPhone5 has arrived, the same bunch were screaming at 4" is the best. If Samsung innovated a 8-core, people scream too much. If Apple uses it, people worship it as the best innovation ever. Oh well...

Nothing new, nothing special. Tegra 4 will also be in quad and octa-core versions.

Is it just who doesn't get why the extra cores are necessary? Underclock Exynos 5 for 2D and there you have it.

Android is laggy while installing apps, Maps app is laggy, scrolling is laggy, and occasional lag sucks. Optimize the OS first, to run as smooth as Windows Phone and iOS.

I can't believe this. Quad-core devices just launch worldwide and now Octo-Core devices??!!!!

I hope this myth is true, because it'd be amazing but being as fast as some PC's in today's time if not faster is more insane than with the Quad-Core devices.

Its a pathetic and stupid disbelief the capple and windows lag users have that some everything else is way better coded. The only difference is restriction. Android is a full user free customizable true multi tasking computer system. The rest are just restrictions that famnoy fanatics like to believe is epic optimization.
