gene, 04 Jun 2012It isn't fair because we who lives in Europe want to have a 2gb ram and 1,5 quad core cpu too?... moreSnapdragon s4 is dual core and not quad.. But it's still quite fast and efficient
Dual-core krait is more than enough for everyday task IMO, never really understood what the big fascnation is with quad-core from what i've seen its powerful but there is no huge advantage over dual-core & with the extra cores there is more battery drain. When quad-core processors become more powerful & battery effcient then I will change my mind about them.
I'm giving up the iPhone and heading over to the "Dark Side" (android). I guess this means I'm finally seeing the light.
gene, 04 Jun 2012It isn't fair because we who lives in Europe want to have a 2gb ram and 1,5 quad core cpu too?... moreYou need to read article more carefully.... It says 1.5 Dual core... Not 1.5 Quad core... We are getting down graded CPU to get LTE...
feels like its's not fair.,why the hell U give only to use Europe n western countries with pack basis,the people who live in countries like Sri lanka need to use this damn phones with pack basis.
How many people here have used a phone with Qualcomms dual core Krait? I have an HTC One X (NA version ) and love it no complaints. However, besides its styling and build quality, I'm a fan of the GS3. Its gonna sell millions. As a previous iPhone 4 owner, I will say that when it comes to cell phones, its different strokes for different folks. I love the customization that Android 4 offers, but would I reccomend it to my 70 yr old mom or girlfriend . Nope , not as easy to use . I won't bash or support the Touchwiz user interface because my experience with it is limited to a few mins with a friends Galaxy Note. I agree with commenters that say a quad or dal core makes no difference. Its day to day use that matters . Diversity is the spice of life. If I was rich, I would own about 5 phones . Thats not the case so I use whats best for me .Enjoy your phones , yay!
Juheim, 04 Jun 2012Only dual core for the US version? The HTC One X beats this thoroughly.The HTC One X doesn't have LTE connectivity and it has also been proven that the S4 dual core is actually faster than both the Exynos and Tegra 3 quad core. Graphics hardware is another situation however I highly doubt the fact that most end users will care or even notice the difference in chip sets.
gene, 04 Jun 2012It isn't fair because we who lives in Europe want to have a 2gb ram and 1,5 quad core cpu too?... moreyep the american one will work anywhere once unlocked so worry not you can still have the works .oh by the way only the GSM ones like t-mobile and at@t will work abroad so i recommend getting one from either service provider
AT&T made live the GS3 info page: http://www.att.com/galaxysiii/?#fbid=o1XQzU-Q6Jy
Cant wait to get out of this Windows Phone
DROP TEST for IPHONE 4S vs Samsung galaxy S III
I get it that 2gb of Ram is a future-proofing feature but, what sort of apps are gonna use that much Ram? Games? picture editing?
TheMan, 04 Jun 2012Faster than Tegra but not Exynos and only in Quadrants tests not in real life.
Try Tegra and ... moreThats what i was going to put as an opinion..
They always change the american models and glad i dont liove their..I love the centre button but American models do away with it..I was going to say i am glad i live in UK but with this government i most definetly am not.
Wil97, 04 Jun 2012It's faster than quad-core tegra 3/exynos 4 (atleast in terms of cpu). This is exactly the sam... moreIt's actually slower in terms of raw CPU speeds
Qualcomm's S4 benches higher in only certain aspects of cpu performance and it looks like IO scores inflated due to possible kernel tweaks
genie: they have dual core and 2gb of ram so ours is more powerful because they don't need the ram and room for the LTE network (i prefer it this way, why would i want such speed on my mobile, i download of a fiber link at home and i have limited network with my phone ... )
gene, 04 Jun 2012It isn't fair because we who lives in Europe want to have a 2gb ram and 1,5 quad core cpu too?... moreYes it will work perfectly, Only you need is "Unlock Code" you can call the carrier and they will give it to you after 6 months at least from the date you bought it OR simply you can buy it for 25$ from the internet.
But i think you did not read the article well it says the US version will NOT have Exynos quad core it will come with Qualcomme Krait dual core.
It isn't fair because we who lives in Europe want to have a 2gb ram and 1,5 quad core cpu too?
what the hell.
Does the one for US works in Germany ?
Wil97, 04 Jun 2012It's faster than quad-core tegra 3/exynos 4 (atleast in terms of cpu). This is exactly the sam... moreFaster than Tegra but not Exynos and only in Quadrants tests not in real life.
Try Tegra and Krait you will find there is a huge difference in real life.
I don't know why Samsung don't give options for carriers either you want Dual and LTE or Quad and No LTE and the users of those carriers choose what they want
