Seriously hope gsm arena will runa full comparitive test and breakdown of the two s4's If im going to drop a lot of money on a handset/contract i want to know i've got the best i can get
Like the 32GB and 64GB Note2 available in S.Korea along with some other hardware options not available in Canada or us or other places is Samsung playing favorites with hardware for others to pay for?... HMMM....
You do know that the GS4 benchmarked here, like the HTC One, is using the Snapdragon 600 but at a higher clock right? Clock for clock, the 600 will beat the Exynos
Pretty bad news for most of the European countries. I now know for sure that the Exynos variant will be available initially only in Austria, Germany, Italy, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland & USA. But Belgium, Bulgaria, France, Sweden, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Greece, Hungary, Latvia, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Poland, Reunion, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia & Turkey will get the Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 variant. I cannot tell if the Exynos CPU will ever be available in these countries at a later point. I cannot also tell yet which CPU variant will be sold in the UK, Cyprus, Ireland, Malta, Norway, Australia.

I couldn't care less what people say negatively about the sgs4,
All I can make out of it is a lot of competitors employees working overtime :)))

Tiger, 19 Mar 2013Aluminum starts to degrade and turns dull after a few weeks of use.well... HTC One is also Snapdragon 600 and HTC was also much closer to Qualcomm, that's why HTC One is ahead of SGS 4 in benchmarks.
And for metal unibody which HTC got used - metal is still metal, even after few months. While plastic SGS4 goes to trash after few days of active use.

Tiger, 19 Mar 2013Aluminum starts to degrade and turns dull after a few weeks of use.not sure for that, but actually aluminum for phone casing is useless. it can make the phone signal receiver very poor and heating your hands for long time used.
The Snapdragon 600 based Galaxy S4 is "twice" as fast as the Galaxy S3 also including the Iphone 5,
And yes also easily beating The HTC one as well.
Happy days :)
