Xperia Yuga to have Exynos 5 Quad chipset, 5This probably comes from the "if only" sections of the rumor mill, but a rumor about Sony's upcoming flagship, the C660X Yuga, promises that the Japanese company will deliver on its promise to release a phone to compete with the iPhone 5 and Galaxy S III in a big way. According to a poster in...

Wait, we are looking at a 1080P OLED 5" with THREE (3) GB of RAM AND, AND, AND a 128 GB of storage with 16 MP shooter??
This is just too good to be true! I think even if Sony was capable of coming up with all these specs in Yuga, it will be hella expensive. It might just be a prototype that Sony is testing what they are capable of. The final product my just come with 2GB of RAM with 32GB the most.
Nevertheless, it is still great and looks much better than the last picture I saw.
Keep up the great work Sony.

They probably haven't been optimized for Android 4.2 just yet, but just look at the score different. Exynos 5 Dual only get 170 in Linpack, while S4 Pro managed to get more than 600 (650+ in some cases). And don't forget that S4 Prime is ready to fight against Exynos 5 Quad before S5 chipset is ready to lauch

@Paul, I can't reply your comment. For whatever reason, it has to be approved by the moderator. But I can post this one, it's strange

@Paul's first comment
Now I ask you, which phone has the most fluid UI with ICS? GS3. So it's clear that they're not the best optimizer in the world. Second, they always terrible in software update. Just look at Xperia Arc vs GS2. GS2 will surely get it's Android 4.2 update, or even Android 5.0 in the future. 2011 Xperias? Yes, they finally got their ICS update, but they will NEVER see JB (yes they updated all their devices just because they all have the same hardware in different bodies so it's easy). And another example, Xperia S vs One S. I believe One S will get it's Android 4.2 update soon, while Xperia S still waiting for it's 4.1 update.

GSMArena, why I can't post my replies to him?

What is 3GB of RAM in my Cellphone for?? Even 2GB of RAM is overkill.

But when you have more than 5 apps drawer, you'll notice more lags, and it will getting worse as you installing more and more apps. My point is, that phone isn't lag free. You see iOs or WP, no matter how many apps you installed, it will never (or 99%) lags. I don't like Apple, but I have to admit that they win in fluidity

Way to go Sony. And by the way when did samsung become shit? Exynos 4 was better than Qualcomm Snapdragon S3 and Dual core Exynos 5 chip can perform close to Quad core S4 pro. So, it doesn't take a genius to figure out that Cortex A15based Quad core exynos 5450 clocked at 2ghz and Mali T654 gpu will beat Snapdragon S4 pro with Adreno 320gpu.

Sony always terrible in software update, just look GS2 vs Xperia Arc. GS2 will surely get Android 4.2 or even Android 5.0 sometimes next year. All 2011 Xperias? Yes they finally got their ICS update (and don't say they upgraded all their models, they all have very similar hardware in different bodies so it's easy to roll it to all their devices). And another example, Xperia S vs One S. I believe One S will get Android 4.2 soon, while Xperia S still waiting their JB update.

In response to what "JWill97" said. I'm currently using a GNOTE 2 with 4 full screens of widgets, and 3 pages of apps full and I notice no lag when pinching or scrolling. Although i will say this...my friend has a GS3 and has 10 pages of apps and it does lag....HAHA. Although I've heard the GS3 lags in the app draw regardless (NA version not international). Just thought I'd share my experiences.

Now they equipped their flagship with advance chipset. That should really jolt your brand. Imagine how much more they could kick some a$$.
