how long will such android oem will brainwash people? samsung just optimised the phone to show higher benchmark
http://blog.gsmarena.com/samsu...re-galaxy-s4

i can also add code in s4 rom to show a benchmark of over 9000k.
even google made phone nexus,moto x are low in specs and benchmark. but the perform far better? why samsung optimise touch wise to give good performance not good benchmark score.

i have octa core s4 and somethime the lag and heat make me feel like throwing it out of window.
even my dada use to say dont judge a man by this clothes.
i just got to know it is aplicable for phone too.

Tbh i don't see the point of this in the UK at least, the S4 I9505 is good enough it offers 4G which most of us still can't get, while the Note 3 offers LTE-Advance for EE to test with come end of the year.

So why do we need a S800 version of the same phone?
Is it so your not outdone from the likes of Sony & LG having a more powerful smartphone out on the market?

All Samsung is really doing is pisses off it's original I9505 buyers, and I bet they also offer both 4K recording and 1080p @ 60fps, plus HDR recording to just to rub salt in the wound more, because by the looks of it both 1080p 60fps & HDR recording which the S600 can do, won't be coming to the original I9505.

Personally i think it a bad move by Samsung to release this.

I am not quite there yet mind.

It won't stop until people that don't seem to realise that when your phone is more powerful than you desktop/laptop/tablet you don't need them.

The people that chase technology (and there seems to be many of them on these forums) forget they are only impressing themselves and the small circle of people that think like they do.

Once you see a slab of plastic covered in a "gaudi" case half the time you cant even tell what it is.

Samsung are getting close to the point where (as in the sci-fi movies) they will produce the high street Digital media devices invade your lives even more than their phones in combination with social networks.

There will be a saturation point at some point but it will be too late.

Perhaps the other vendors should stop sucking up to Asia and start targeting latin American and Africa.

The Asian markets are at the point where people only have enough money for the same crap every couple years, instead of every few months.

Maybe they'll stop once a few people catch fire with overheating Hokey Cokey 2000 cpu's with 1TB storage and 100 megapixel camera's.

My Burger taste the same as yesterday (it doesn't need a zoom lense). SOmetimes too much change is a bad thing,
