What about Mi5? I bet Xiaomi won't be designing their flagship around a failed 810 processor...

i still favorite exonys over snapdragon. i wish samsung would use their own instead of snapdragon.
kiboi, 17 Dec 2015SD overrated as usual. That's why all the major companies are offering it on their flagship, good thinking hater.
I literally hate Apple not because they are Apple but because i dont find anything exciting in an iPhone and i get bored soon while using one so i dont spend my money on icraps but here, seriously, Samsung is doing real time shit right now. Atleast iPhone users get to enjoy ONE WHOLE YEAR with their CURRENT flagship and can flaunt it that "oh yeah i have an iPhone 6S or Plus whatever" but Samsung is doing injustice with their customers, taking premium prices and not even letting them live a whole year instead releasing two flagships an year with lots of edges, pluses, actives and etc.
youwish, 17 Dec 2015What does it matter? They will fill the phone with soooo much garbage that it will lag within ... moreHaha, true. I was thinking of trying the note 5 but what's the point when s7 is just round the corner with that all so revered 820.

come on, move on with 100 times better specs now.
added with much better OS.
What does it matter? They will fill the phone with soooo much garbage that it will lag within a few days anyway. Samsung is hilarious, they keep using the most insane chips just to power their phones. If they just reduced all the junk they put in the phones then they could use any chip they want. No one cares what chip is in it when the phone is full of so much bloat anyway.
HKFoo, 17 Dec 2015S820 is not produced by samsung.... I repeat, not by samsung So it happened again 3D touc... moreretina scanner may not be done by Samsung but they have had work with it since the Note3 to compete with iphone touch ID at that time... well, I still shaking may head to death for existence of this crap! finger print scanner is enough gimmick! I call this thing bullshit though!
I feel Exynos is still better in performance and heat than SD CPUs. Not sure about GPU though.

I'm honestly still using a Note II (N7105) and since 2012 only started experiencing some lag a few months ago. Therefore, I suspect it is more about the amount of apps I have collected versus the 2GB RAM available.
I will agree though that it probably would have been faster for a longer period (maybe even until today) if the Touchwiz is more optimized or if it had stock Android. Touchwiz does slow the device down a litte, though depending on the user, it offers a lot of features that I like. I couldn't replace the ROM since I am very much dependent on the S Pen apps.
