580$ in US that is so cheap....her ein india it will cost above 800$
we get freaking s3(16gb) for 580$
Why are they giving LTE models to countrys that don't even have proper 3G speeds?? Makes no sense -.-"
fush n chups, 21 Mar 2013Philippines has limited support on 4G. It was reported only main cities get 4G connectivity.Which means Phil is like all other countries. You didnt expect 4G coverage in the remote villages did you? If you think its better in the most advance western countries then think again.
What about Ireland? Not on the list unless you still thinking that we are part of UK but we are NOT...
TheMan, 21 Mar 2013Exynos has better battery life and check in XDA forum, GSMarena SIII stated Exynos gave 50 hou... more48 hours battery rating of xperia z (5" FHD display) is awful??? So what you want from xperia z 48 weeks battery life
pk, 21 Mar 2013it's not cool, in a year 4g for mobile devices will be available in india. And then this non-L... moreBuddy 4G is already available in India now AIRTEL is the network carrier doing that, however the 3G itself is taking time to spread here 4G will take more time to spread here & it might be more expensive then 3G so its worth getting the 3G version of the phone as the only thing will matter with the 3G or 4G network will be the internet speed. And we always have wifi to use.

i'm form egypt
but i need to know how is the Exynos 5 Octa chipset or Snapdragon 600 version. ican get any one.
James, 21 Mar 2013Cool, we're getting both, but I don't think the LTE version is useful for us; because we don't... moreSmart and Globe have LTE available now. You can actually use some LTE-capable phones here now provided they are compatible with Globe or Smart's networks. The Xperia V, Ascend P1i, S III LTE, ZTE T82, the iPhone and the Optimus G are among the first handsets certified to work with our networks.
SaadGadit, 21 Mar 2013For the first time am feeling good for not having 4G here in Pakistan. Welcome i9500Insha Allah we will get 4G soon
Exynos has better battery life and check in XDA forum, GSMarena SIII stated Exynos gave 50 hours and Snapdragon gave 43 hours in the blog.
Snapdragon is a battery drainage, check how awful battery life in Xperia Z and HTC One because of that chip.
And Exynos Dual core scored as same as Quad core Snapdragon in Geekbenchmark, So its 100% the Quad core Exynos will blow S600 and S800 out of water.
And the best part is the GPU in I9500 PowerVX triple core its way better than the laggy old 320 adreno, if you don't believe me check the scores in Egypt benchmark and how it lags in HD animation.
If it wasn't for the patents Samsung would embedded the LTE chip in Exynos, but Qualcomm patented it, Samsung could add it as extra chip like in Note II I7105 but it would drain more battery and make it thick.
