It's a Dual-"Quad-Core"
And I think Snapdragon 600 performance would be better than that "Exynos Octa Core"

That chip must be fast!

The A15 inside the Exynos SoC isn't 1.6GHz, it's 1.2. The A7 is clocked at 1.6.

It amazes me that people would want to buy an LTE-less phone in 2013.

Sammy won't be talking about the shortage if ocatacore performed better than s600. Ex5 is a flop, sammy has wasted its resource for nothing. Excuses excuses. The hype is over.

i guess research on exynos 5 octa is still not yet completed n may be it is facing some issues so it is taking them some more time... even there was not a single i9500 model on galaxy s4 launch event, all were i9505 one otherwise we would have got benchmarks for it... so still the real galaxy S4(i9500) is not announced yet... hope we get it soon... i can wait but will buy S4(i9500) only...

Here in the Philipppines, we got both the i9300 and the i9305. Now, we're getting both the i9500 and the i9505. Furthermore, they're quite cheap. Maybe its because there are a lot of Koreans here and this is a 3rd world country.
