Show your proof for this.
Samsung has the best and fastest UI and these benchmarks have shown their 8 cores can crush the old and slow

So the ultimate question...... WHERE DID THAT BENCHMARKS rating goes?

Even S3, HTC one and Sony does not have the same lag as it does.. Its shameful.

GET the Exynos overclocker to equal the 1.9GHz of the Snapdragon then rerun tests.

oh by the way... this are the fast CPU to date.

Exynos 5 Octa - Quad-core [1.6Ghz A15/1.2Ghz A7]
Snapdragon 600 - Quad-core [1.9Ghz A9]
Tegra 4 - Quad-core + 1 core [1.9Ghz A15] with 72 core-GPU
Tegra 4i - Quad-core [2.3Ghz A9] 60 core GPU

*those above mention chipset can achieve 25,000+ scores in Antutu benchmark. (tegra 4 chipset are not yet tested,)

Great job then! I see those A15 chip are powerful with the combined power of those A7 power saving chips-both quad-core (FYI: Octa-core on Samsung wont run all 8 cores in 1 time. The quad A15 cores are used for heavy task while the A7 cores are used for task that dont need extra processing. Pretty good scores by the way that Octa-cores punch in. But im kinda torn between the new chipset that NVIDIA released. The new Tegra 4 features a quad core clocked at 1.9Ghz, A15 SoC based cores, with additional 5th core for power-saving. PLUS a 72 GPU CORES!!! Im waiting for this chips to be deployed in several devices this year. Im telling you its gonna be fast!
