And we always have wifi to use.

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.

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.
