Actualy its difficult A7 and A15 combination. maybe sammy tryin to merge 8 core of A12 with ther next gen Exynos which will better compared to current combination of Octa CORE {4xA7+4xA15} < [8xA12] Octa.or why not (8xA15) it will blow ur mind surely but at some compromise.2diffrent thing cant sync at once that what i mean.even they manage to sync but standart remains diffrent.thnx

This is what i call innovation and not some 64-bit which has already been done and Apple falsely claimed they were the first.

If you are near a WiFi network like 90% of the time then LTE might be not be such a necessity, or even be a bit superfluous. I hope you're not saying that LTE devices also perform better over WiFi networks as well, do you?

LTE is great for online gaming and video chats which low ping is very important. And let's not get into pure down/up speeds. LTE right now is still in its initial stages but when things like LTE-A come up, it'll be another game-changer.

It sounds interesting, however the chances of the S4 of ever getting the update is non existent as the actual silicon has been crippled to work in its current format only. Im guessing that the Meizu doesn't have that problem. As for the Galaxy Note 3 we will have to wait and see.
