I dont care about the design of the CPU cores- only like 200 people on the whole earth would really understand whats going on in there. I am an end-user. It only matters how good the product works for the job its meant to do. I perceive picture quality of the camera, the smoothness of the UI - battery life - etc. In all these so far - for me - android (pure android) phones are better than the iphone - so thats it.
green, 29 Oct 2015Samsung = Expensive and Powerful. iPhone = Limited Features and Expensive. lol ... "powerful" ... hehe
I wonder what more can they possibly do in terms of design. I current have the s6 edge and am very satisfied.this device was a vast change than all previous models,and is hard to beat!
AHTOH, 29 Oct 2015If you think Samsung is expensive, buy an iPhone.If you think iPhone is expensive, buy Samsung - the better in technology. Hahahaha...
Samsung = Expensive and Powerful.
iPhone = Limited Features and Expensive.

if it is more powerful, i dont mind paying more.
AHTOH, 29 Oct 2015If you think Samsung is expensive, buy an iPhone.Samsung flagship ones (edge, edge plus, Note) are on par in terms of cost with iPhones though in terms of value for money, obviously plain looking iPhones may look far more expensive than feature rich Sammy flagships!

To me it's not fair that Samsung does this. Before they used to sell phones over in Europe with twice the cores and ram. Now they are going to do the same only now with this. Don't do the US dirty Sammy. Let's keep it real through out the whole world. I sware if they do this again I will buy an Oni phone or LG.

Anonymous, 29 Oct 2015Oh please, what's the use of "flashing your ROM" if it brakes your phone (see: http://www.gsma... moreYou do know most Android features comes from XDA? Google blatantly copy features from XDA. Developers put hard work in developing those apps from scratch which might take years and Google just use it without even giving the developers some credit over it.
Also Google and Snapdragon go hand in hand. Most of the apps in play store are optimized for Snapdragon processors. But I suppose everyone already knew that.
Samsung is presenting every year worst phones compared to the competition!
How is it possible to need Quad-Cores and Octa-Cores to compete with Dual-Cores from Apple and yet the performance is at best similar?!
I hope for they own good that they show some innovation in the next phones
JF69, 29 Oct 2015The SD820 will be a beast. Actually it won't. The benchs have leaked and it will be slightly better than Exynos7420. Being slightly better than a one year old SoC is the opposite of being a beast. Qualcomm never had particularly talented engineers, I guess they have fine gpus and documentation though.
