in my country using internet radio using over the 3g will cost a lot,so now i am confused between the galaxy s4 and htc one,i will wait for the full review of both phones.
absence of the fm radio was one of the main reasons that made me avoid the iphone .

ironically ,in my daily life i only use the fm radio once or twice every month.

The exynos octa overclocked at 1.8Ghz just beats the snapdragon processor, but if its not overclocked they get just about the same,

So this proves that the snapdraggon is not inferior to the octacore processor, in addition it has LTE, all it means is that you get a little less battery life than the octacore processor since it only uses 3G. I wish Samsung didn't release the octacore processor as now everyone wants it, its funny how no one is bashing the lg optimus g pro or the HTC one, yet they have the cheek to say that, or even assume that the otcacore processor is automatically superior to the snapdraggon. People stop whinging and crying just coz your getting the snapdraggon 600 SoC. No one bashed the nexus 4 with its snapdraggon pro processor. Everyone stfu and stop falling into Samsung's marketing.. The octacore is just marketing, and I don't trust exynos, after the whole exynos saga. Grow up guys!

I believe one reason for Samsung to decide on releasing two versions of the Galaxy S4 is because they wouldn't be able to catch up with Exynos' rollout in so many countries at the same time. Guess that explains why few relatively small (and rather unattractive) markets in Asia/Middle East are getting the Octa Core version....

Another thing might be that the inaugural batch of the Exynos chipset is flawed/still in improvement (like every initial release of a smartphone). What do you, guys, think on that?

LOL. To all of you from the UK and US, not getting the Exynos version, deal with it. Us 3rd world and developing countries got inferior versions of phones like the One S. About time someone gave us priority. Good job Samsung.

Lol why is Cyprus getting the LTE model when there is no LTE provider in Cyprus. Deeply disappointing.
