samsung this is the lamest phone you ever build . You put a 7 months old chip inside your junk which makes it even slower . Go down samsung , i am fan of lg anyway . They may not have the gratest advertising campigns but at least they allways put the latest and gratest (far before all others) in their phones on even lower price than your junk sh*ts !

If this supposed to be truth and my country (Serbia) get I9505 version,that will be big dissapointing for me.LTE/4G network in my region,who knows when is be enabled,so we dont need a I905 SGS4.
yuuu, 22 Mar 2013Its not octa core. its dual quadcore. Cortex A7 (1.2 ghz) for l What a waste from Samsung they over hype the device, they screw us customers around again by not releasing two different versions when it really should just need one version, i was really foward to get this phone, now i'm not so sure anymore
CKP18941, 21 Mar 2013I don't think this is true.. Why would Samsung release the LTE enabled samsung Galaxy s3 in a ... moreIt is probably because S3 uses an external LTE chip while the S4 uses the one built into the core processor (for a slimmer profile). Since the Snapdragon 600 has one built-in and the Exynos octa does not, the model availability are thus split. S600 model with LTE and Exynos Octa with only 3G support.
Guess, 22 Mar 2013Cortex A15 Cores at 1.6Ghz > Krait 300 Cores at 1.9Ghz =) The disadvantage would be batte... moreLol it's not a matter of opinion, it's simple facts. An A15 core trashes the Snapdragon 600 core. They're not even close, it's not even funny. The dual a15 nexus 10 is better than snapdragon quads, imagine what quad a15 chip would do :-P . Same with the GPU, the exynos (power vr) part would be substantially faster than qualcomm's 320.
It's sad that 1st world countries will get shafted, I suppose there is low availability for the exynos chip, so they compensate by releasing it only on select markets...

Thanks mate
If South Africa doesn't get the Exynos core I'll go with HTC. That Snapdragon will just be too battery intensive.
