So the Exynos 5 Octa turned out to be just a Hype after all.I was very anxious to see how it will perform againest the S600 but i guess i'm gonna be waiting for it longer than expected.

Even better than HTC One and Xperia Z
.
I don't know what you want them to say? Xperia Z or HTC One are the best? Xperia S and One X are best examples of what future Xperia Z and HTC one will have, both of them didn't even reach 1/8 of what SIII did.

I wonder what will South Africa have... LTE is currently being rolled out, it should have reached most areas in most major cities by September this year.

Interesting enough, why didn't Sammy think of having LTE built into the Exynos 5??? They had over a year to do that...

Exynos and Nvidia can't embedded LTE technology in their chips maybe at least for the next couple of years.
