another marketing strategy of samsung, another props crops pops that are not really true like the 3 gb ram on samsung note 3 only 1.84 ram is available for user. s4 octacore but the true only 4 core are working the other 4 just fancy. i think the inovation that samsung can make if they make 64 bit on there chipset, however they are the 1st on android if they thus this. but apple start it fist. samsing go for the win
Compact 720p smartphone is more than enough. Larger than that, the device will not be comfortable when on the move, even for slow walk. 720p doesn't need such powerful 8 core processors. It is more useful if it is more power efficient rather than more cores.
We wanted Samsung to unlock, and they are listerning too us again.We never wanted true 8 cores before but now we do.

Probably to announce a new precessor and probably "Unlock" likr the photo say the exynos 5 octas so they can run all eight cores

Less teasing and more updating your devices on time.... S4 and Note 3 are still waiting for Kitkat.

Surprise, surprise. Snapdragon 800 beats Exynos 5.
As far as battery life: we know how that turned out with the Galaxy S4. Not only was the Snapdragon 600 a better performer, but it got better battery life as well. It'll be the same for the Note 3, especially since the Note 3's Exynos is just a further-overclocked version of the one in the S4, which was already overclocked higher than ARM recommends. In other words, battery life will be awful with Exynos.
Not to mention the fact that only Snapdragon supports 4K recording. And Qualcomm has already announced the Snapdragon 805, which absolutely trashes every other SoC that we know about. Looks like 2014 is not going to be kind to Exynos, either.
Gelvin - Maximus, 28 Dec 2013So! The people who bought GS4 not so long ago will be up for a GS5? Cool story. And a GS6, GS7, 8....9..... and people who bought iphone4 are up for iPhone4S, 5, 5s, 6, 6s, 7, 7s.......
Or you can think on your own and skip a few generations no matter what you have bought before.

If Qualcomm thought they could get a better result by going with a different architecture at 1.9 GHz compared to the Krait 400 at 2.2, I'm sure they would have done it. Looking at the results of the comparisons between S800 and Exynos 5, I'd say Qualcomm made the right choice.
Anonymous, 28 Dec 2013If you think the cpu itself is completely on same level you have no reason to be posting hereActully, I read a review of all top chipsets of the year, and the author stated that the advantages that the A7 has, for example very broad cores, are advantages that the cortex 57 (cyclone base) has over the cortex 15 (kraft 400 base). And since this chipsets will probably have cores based on the cortex 57/53 it will carry all advantages that the A7 has - but with 4 times the cores and undoubtedly higher clock speed. What can be not so good about this cpu though is heat development. There is a risk it will overheat a lot.

My cousin has this Note 3 version and he's mad at it because... he doesn't care what you are saying but features it lacks.
I wouldn't get my hopes up. At CES 2013, Samesung announced the Exynos Octa to much fanfare. We all know how that turned out: overheating issues, inability to utilize all eight cores effectively, buggy firmware, lack of availability in major markets. The mythical Octa was little more than vaporware this year as Sammy shipped Snapdragons inside its big sellers instead.
