Korean consumers upset over faster LTE-A Galaxy S4 - read the full textA few days ago Samsung's co-CEO J.K. Shin confirmed an LTE-Advanced version of the Samsung Galaxy S4 is in the works. As it turns out this version will run on the Qualcomm's most powerful chipset to date - the Snapdragon 800. The new hardware will make the LTE-A model of the Samsung Galaxy...

 

Sort by:

by the WAY! Koreans are sad!
and the 800 SoC version are just for Koreans,

I agree. Im fuming, a few weeks ago we had S4. now we S4 zoom. Now we Snapdragon 800 S4. its good Samsung are banging about top phones. just at least give it a few months between release dates. i wish i waited and got the Snapdragon 800 version

However you are childish in the same token thinking that specs and new things are completely unimportant and anyone who thinks otherwise in any form is a child.

Nice try with fiction.

The S4 was already well into the design phase and suppliers were being sorted out when SK Telcom announced firm plans to offer LTE-A earlier this year. The Snap800 is more expensive and supports LTE-A, the Snap600 doesn't.

Only those who don't understand manufacturing would be critical of Samsung, given that the Snap600 & Snap800 were being sampled in January of this year.

Good if you're just getting ready to upgrade, bad if you bought the S4 and one of the S4 variants to be released in the next couple months has features more to your liking.

Well, it's not exactly Samsung's fault is it? Those are the perks of being an early adopter. The same happened with Xperia Z and it's inferior LCD and the iPhone 5 that came scratched out of the box.
Next time be a conscious consumer instead of just throwing your money at the new Galaxy.

Ok , everybody get this , my galaxy s 2 from 2 years ago is just as fast as when I bought it 2 years ago (even faster because I removed the bloatware that I had on purchase), I don't give a damn about the iphone x , the galaxy s 9001 or htc chosen one ,or whatever the hell is coming out soon , I haven't been paying attention to new phones because My old phones is working well , I won't be upgrading until my phone gives in. Why am I so different then from all of you kids? I don't care about gigaherzes , I just want a phone that works smooth , a bit lag now and then doesn't kill anyone , maybe it is because I am from an older generation...

Wish GSMArena would go back to the original voting system or 6-7 votes a day,,this system is not working either...Even top phones are getting low scores making the system redundant also,,i used to use all of my score votes per day,,you had to wait a while to vote again they were the exiting days on gsmarena.
