I sense that some people complain about this because once the new phone with the faster chipset comes out they no longer have bragging rights about their phone.

Solution? Wait 4 months and see what new phones are coming out that you're interested in. After 4 months look at new phones and what's been announced.....repeat cycle. After about 3 years you may realize your phone is so old it doesn't matter what phones are coming out in 4 months and you'd be thankful to get the phone with the features not available on your current phone.

Speaking of faster processors, the latest from Mediatek:

Waiting is good but few months after you wait snapdragon 900 will be announced LOL. I'm satisfied with 800 because the major advantage 805 has over 800 is GPU and I don't play games much on my phone. Every flagship phone becomes an old phone almost every four months with announcement of new processors.

Seriously? Almost all Android devices took almost half year to build and use snapdragon 800, and now here comes the Snapdragon 805, I was planning to buy one of the snapdragon 800 phone, and thanks to this, i have to hold up for a while... and im thinking how long it would be for the manufacturer will use snapdragon 805 on their new devices...

come on people stop complaining about faster processors, we need to continue getting better everything for the future evolution of our species...1000 years from now ,the mobile processing speed of our CPUs will be like 100 times NUDT Tianhe-2 or faster...we need to keep striving for excellence, performance, etc. Thus we can make colonies on other planets, etc.

Actually, even the Snapdragon 600 still suffice and could probably deliver an acceptable performance even when future OS updates roll out. Why do they keep on doing that even if the recent processors can still deliver? Other people who just look on the paper and do not know how each of those specs work would feel that if a smartphone doesn't have the latest one, it's considered a "garbage." It's just quite sad that more people are becoming shallow and will give importance more on "benchmarks." This is more of a trend than a need which adds to the cost of the future smartphones. How about the alleged 64-bit true octa core to be used in Sam's S5? What will happen to the "old" S4 then? Will it be a trash or will it sleep forever? I feel quite pity on this type of trend.

Calm down! S800 is still hot! Stop making new processors. We can't buy everyday a new phone with new processor. Why they do it? Yesterday 2,3 GHz, Today 2,5, Tomorrow 2,7 GHz. Stop please! I think 2.3 GHz too enough for Android devices. My phone getting faster than my pc. Please stop! People still thought S800 is newest processor and who one read it (Especially Nexus 5 & LG G2 Users)will disappoint.

That's about 28% smaller
And about the screen i have doubts that i'll see a 4k smartphones soon

Rather than more GHz or 128 bit, I prefer to see SRAM. It is much faster than DRAM but takes much less power.

People think that the iPhone 5S got those scores bicause it has a 64bit CPU when in fact it's because of the new Cortex A50/A53 design...
That's marketing for you.

64bit mean it's allowing to pass the 3GB 32bit OS limitation and it would also mean its more memory hungry but a tad more effecient.Benchmarks could indicate an 0 to 10% increasement in performance if the OS is truely optimized for it.

So pretty useless atm...
