... and finally we will see a graphics performance that will surpass PS3 and XBox 360. They have come up with this argument every year since the introduction of Nvidia Tegra chipset.

So the new SG4 specs:
- Snapdragon 800 Quad Core 2.3 GHz.
- Adreno 330 GPU.
- 5" 1080 True HD S-Amoled with gorrila glass 3.
- 16/32/64 GB storage + micro SD.
- Hopefully it will get a S-Pen.
- Hopefully 2500+ mhamps battery.
- Hopefully a better image processing for the 8MP camera (please learn from nokia or even steal their technology we don't care just develop for us the ultimate phone).
- Hopefully a micro-HDMI port on the phone without an adapter.

24p is the cinematic standard, so 30fps would be more than enough ... (24- 24fps on display )
normally 24p gives the best, most natural light when dealing with moving objects or refresh rates (water, screens, light bulbs, and so on ... )

I think Snapdragon 800 is way faster than tegra 4 the gimmick, and it may even crush exynos 5 just like what happened last year with exynos 4.

My 3rd Gen Intel i3 is clocked at 2.4 and is Dual core. OMG Mobile processors are pushing the limits to the next level. If they continue this trend, INTEL is gonna be next NOKIA

You can check the battery test of both sgs3 and optimus g having 2100 mah battery though exynos chipset on s3 is outdated compared to latest s4 pro. (800).

Awww, darn. They should have announced it last year on December. So by the looks of it, I'm guessing better smartphones and tablets running Snapdragon 800 will appear some time around Q3-2013.

Improvement in speeding up in all aspects, speedy consumption of battery charge,

how much speed you need after recording and playback of hd videos ? is the phone going to fly taking with you ?

same goes with os updates, what they do. just more and more code, more memory required and each new minor functionality cost about gb of data and processing load and overall low performance of device, even battery.

update or optimization should be of using less resource by finding ways to reduce codes, they need to put research in this.

same with power consumption, they need to make better and better design to reduce loss of power and longer duration with same specs. this is upgrading. upgrading of resources and claiming better performance is not upgrading but worst management of utilization of source.

so actually it's same like having stones, sand and water to put in one jar but if poured it wrongly could result in no space left for other.
