Would like to ask one question though : If I use power saving mode always, do the a15 cores never come into play? What does power saving mode basically do?

> In reply to [deleted post]I don't think so. Those who i find are trolls i don't reply to. The latest one had read my comparison and was shocked as he expected i9505 to have better performance. And you can see, most of times i just copy my old comment and paste. It takes about 5 seconds. So i don't really bother. All except the recent answer are just plainly copied and pasted. so no worries.

Thanks for caring though.

Have a nice day

> In reply to arji @ 2014-04-22 14:29 from 6PB0 - click to readBoth phones have radically different processors. The exynos 5 octa is used in i9500. It's also called exynos 5410 or simply 5410. It has 4 1.2 GHz cortex a7 cores and 4 1.6 GHz cortex a15 cores making a total of 8 cores hence making it's name octa. The i9505 has 4 1.9 GHz krait 300 cores and hence it's the quad core version.


Now to these type of cores, cortex a15 are monsters in raw performance. But they are also most inefficient. Krait come in the middle with power and efficiency. The cortex a7 are incredibly weak but incredibly power efficient.

In exynos 5410, the 4 cortex a7 are used for normal tasks like music playback or calling to save battery and when you fire a game or do browsing, the cortex a15 come up. The 4 cortex a15 are around 5 times more powerful for comparison. Hence the exynos chip has great power with good enough efficiency or battery life.

The i9505 has qualcomm's asynchronous technology which helps it lower the clock speed to save battery when power is not needed.

Coming to comparison, I prefer geekbench 3 and quadrant as they only compare CPU power decently. The geekbench scores are i9500: 2470 and i9505: 1900.

quadrant: i9500: 17200 , i9505: 12300

So even the quad core 1.6 Ghz destroys 1.9 GHz krait.

The battery life depends on how you use it. If you use games a lot then cortex a15 will be active and i9500 will have less battery life. If you do casual activities, the cortex a7 will give i9500 a much battery life.

All other points i've mentioned in my previous comments. i9505 has slightly better battery life in general. it also has LTE (4G) and better developer support. i9500 has better audio, better camera, slow-mo HD recording and obviously better processor.

Choice is yours

Have a nice day

> In reply to sam @ 2014-04-22 11:07 from rK8n - click to readIt depends how you use your phone. My father has a g2 and he wants to exchange with me. G2 has a better battery life and gpu( graphics processing unit). It's also a unibody if you want that type of thing.

S4 has its own advantages. It had a better screen. Really, amoled beats the lcd by a large margin. Also it comes with sd card slot. A 16 gb lg g2 us useless as it gives only 10 gb of space and it can't suffice. I have a 64 gb sd card on my s4 and all my data is easily transferable and I have a lot of space. Also, touchwiz looks and works much better than optimus ui.

Both devices are quite similar in all other features. Both have great cameras and software packages.

I would suggest you go through the comparison by gsmarena between g2 and s4.

One suggestion. If you buy g2, get 32 gb one. 16 gb only gives 10 gb and that's really very less. The 32 gb will give about 25 gb space and that may work. A 4-5 gb free memory is always needed to make phone fast. If you get storage below 1 gb, phone will lag like hell.

Have a nice day. Ask any more questions if you have.
