Come on, does every SGS4 related news article have to be bashed by HTC One fanboys? Does it really hurt people so much that there's a phone that's going to sell better/best? It deserves it, it's the best all-arounder, it sucks that there are people who can't admit it. I admit it, though I probably won't be able to buy it.

Now tell me which phone is better then the S4 and I'm speaking objectively although I doubt you'll avoid subjective opinion.
HTC ONE? Better Design is subjective. Audio and Zoe? are the only advantages it has and that's marginal. We're yet to see how the Exynos Wolfson Audio chip will perform.
S4 has a superior display, standby battery life which is expected to be better on the exynos variant, slightly faster, thermometer/barometer/hygroscope etc, better software like multiwindow multitasking, smart alert, smart rotate, pop up video player, smart pause, direct call..better camera hands down, better codec support outside the box, removable battery, SD slot, comes with latest android version,more compact phone etc etc

LG Optimus G pro? Phablet and it's competing with the Note series and even then easily outclassed..

iPhone 5? LOL I won't even go there, afraid I'll produce an essay too long on this phone

XperiaZ? Aside from it's water resistance factor it has a terrible screen for this years standard and the S4 dismantles it easy. Software wise it's another one sided thrashing.

Any other phone out there that can match the S4? Go on elighten me LMAO

But what you didnt seem to get is, that those a15 dualcores run as fast as a a9 quad core, so who cares? People can always argue over something, because it is different.

Is it better to do it like the iPad in germany? Sell it like it has LTE, but the Chip doesnt support german LTE frequenzies, so it is worth 0.

Ah and S4 mini is a totally different phone from S4, so there are only 3 Variants and one of them will only go to several countries and the ones with Exynos will get to choose LTE and no LTE variant, dont get where everyones problem is... Like it would change anything...

SIII has custom roms and what you talking about is one person's opinion and CM team said that, so there will be custom roms for sure to Exynos Octa.
Look how your soda can shattered, iPhone fall several times on screen and its in better shape than HTC one

4MP camera has disappointing performance in good lighting conditions
Non-expandable storage
Awkwardly-placed and uncomfortable power button
Senes UI still lacks connectivity toggles in notification area
Non user-replaceable battery
Poor video and audio codec support out of box

The big question is. Why would any one buy the non exynos version?

70% go waste?
