Connection speed is much dependent on your mobile carrier. You bet.

Before the massive outrage kicks in how Samsung could pull this trick with it's S4 customers, read Sammobile's article on the Exynos chipset chaos:
http://www.sammobile.com/2013/...-soc-future/

Now that you've done it, take the Korean market, the key home region for Samsung where the little extra is always expected, and now you understand that if the manufacturing of the Exynos 5 Octa stops, they cannot step back in performance to the SD600, they need SD800 (which is not much faster than the Octa BTW). And it happens to coincide with the LTE Advance launch... so along comes the S4 LTE Advance with Snapdragon 800.

Oh x2 LTE Speed..?

Well thats fast!.. BUT the biggest question.. can S4 handle it? It already lagging with the current LTE speed... so i guess not.

The bottleneck is android with samsung junk ware... not with the lte speed... feature wasted.

Galaxy 19505 S 4

Over heating part to be attended first
For power saving another 1.2 quad core processor must
Heat sink is mandatory
Yet the price is still high
Contact names to be scrolling (in lengthy name)
Hope
Samsung will rectify at once

How about taking a break from this. Almost all countries have weak LTE coverage only in big cities and huge data plans and they release newer technologies....you gotta be kidding me

this is nonsense. for sure it will spill more blood out of your pocket in exchange of little upgrade... i9505 is better and battery life wise....
