> In reply to [deleted post]Hi BankProgrammer, don't get upset over some comments. I have been working in the IT industries for the last 12 years and I couldn't agree more with you. The advent of more powerful as well as more efficient hardware is what pushes any IT or consumer electronic related industry forward. Just look at what USB3, Gigabit LAN, wireless technologies have done just in the last 2 years. If Samsung or any other of the Android Smartphone manufacturers want to produce a device with 8 0r 16 core processors, hey who am I to argue? ;-)

interesting, but is it just numbers or a real benefit.
Does the software makes use of that nifty 8 core chip ?

I'll take optimized OS in Windows Phone and iOS over laggy Android any day.

This is leading samsung nowhere, yes success for now but how about the future. Atleast if it were sony am sure an uncharted or God of war or something special is coming right behind it to test such power. You plan before you leap, this is were sony and apple will always be ahead of companies like samsung. Honestly, without google and third party companies samsung mobile is finished. Am a sony hardcore fan but I do prefer amoled which is all I can possibly pick from a sammy phone.

Really? So you think the heart of device is its software? Try installing Windows 8 in your Pentium III CPU then. Or put your Apple as a core-banking system and compare it to mainframe computer. Software and hardware are two integrated entities that make device works.

Build a laptop, throw to it every Linux developer, you will get the most stable, fast and reliable machine on the world.
But the word isn't like the iWorld: we like the difference. I might like a tall blonde with big boobs, but not only.
The strength of Apple is the limit of Apple: 1 model a year.

OH MY GOD !! Hardware, and hardware and again the same thing. Does anyone know that the TRUE heart of a device is its software? Have you ever wondered why IPhone has so good benchmarks with mediocre hardware ( no offense, apple fanboys... really, no offense )?? Because it has optimized software.

I wished that Android would be very optimized at least for Nexus devices....

However ridiculous this news is, if Samsung still provide a removable battery, expendable memory and keep the home button on (instead of the hideous on-screen), I'm in.
