Finally, the next generation processor!
Monster core. I would love to get a phone with this SOC.
mixa, 09 Jan 2013So Samsung had nothing to show at this year's CES and started to show chipsets on paper? Ac... morewell...that's samy's way of "inovation", because they squeezed every single gram of juice from quads and now they have to move on. I would buy a s4 only if they paint on the back - "I have 8 cores and no luck with the...", oh, and also a tshirt with that:)
AnonD-54303, 09 Jan 2013i would say samsung is the new guy in town and apple is like the old nokias, there everywhere ... moretechnology companies come and go. no one is king forever. now is samsung, doesn't mean it will last FOREVER. if you think samsung can last forever , you are too naive
AnonD-77443, 10 Jan 2013"Fragile plastic phones".... have you seen the Note 2 drop tests? Maybe you should a... moredrop tests don't mean anything in real life usage. my colleague's note 2 got a dent after she dropped it. a new set and she is quite upset about it
[deleted post]samsung is only good for performance and very fast to bring different models to the market. other areas they are not good.
AnonD-78683, 10 Jan 2013Plastic what kind of ignorant are you? Plastic is not an invention its a material. Your Noki... moreHave U ever seen lumia 920 hammer test video from YouTube? Try to compare it with s3's test?
Samsung should focus on quality even though phone will little bit heavier.Upto 200 g is normal.If you feel it heavy you are very weak mentally and make physically.
siddparkar, 10 Jan 20138 cores? Then what, 16 cores? i'm getting tired of this rat race. anyway, whats the use ... moreXperia z is going to get hammered by sgs4 anyway. Sony can consider themselves lucky if they can sell 10 million of z under 3 months before arrival of its rival.
AnonD-58527, 10 Jan 2013android doesn't lag anymore. I've used WP7 Launcher on my old HTC one S, and it was laggy w... moreComeon ! Wp7 on a android phone ? Thats pathetic , the quality with which androids are made you were lucky enough to install a wp7 launcher... Wanna see how wp work then use a wp phone not some cheap quality high priced using less than half of its got specs in reality kind of land android phone ! They dont even know how to optimise a quad core and now they are upto octa ! Its just like giving skate boards to grandma's who cant even walk. Ha ha
Anonymous, 09 Jan 2013Galaxy S1 : Samsung showed that they were serious about the android platform. Had the best CPU... moreSamsung are already unbeatable when it comes to android and sgs4 will take them to further heights. Sgs4....we are waiting for you.
Anonymous, 10 Jan 2013Note2 maybe a little tough compared to fragile s3. But Samsung can't beat Nokia and Sony in te... moreDid you watch how samsung test their devices before letting it out in the market? There you'll see how flexible the s3 is and how they do tests on the hard keys.. Plastic doesn't meen low quality, plastic is more durable than aluminumn in some cases. Please be broad-minded.
Now, let's not get out of line here. Samsung is only better than sony in mobile section and nothing else. So u don't go comparing a crappy samsung tv with a sony led bravia, or sony digital camera or blu ray players and the rest. inFact, don't even think it. Yeah, samsung have the best market strategy, adverts and phones but thats all they have against sony. And please sammy/galaxy/universe phone fans, don't attack me with useless comments, do ur homework. LONG LIVE PLAY, LONG LIVE SONY
AnonD-79590, 10 Jan 2013Do you even know a single thing about processors other than cores? Snapdragon S4 Pro is Krait ... moreActually s4 pro used "pseudo" a15 cores so they're not a9 but more like a15.
Thats what gets me excited for sony!
Apps should terminate its operation when the phone is on standby to conserve battery. This is where the "full" multitasking of android is the problem ... they are too lazy.. Background process should be classified like in the case of iOS or WP8, like audio playback, remote notification.. etc things that does not require the screen.
Here android everything is a service which u cannot stop!.. ads .. single connection PER app.. all kindas useless rouge apps.. how much of your life is spent trying to fix that battery drain ..
Sure .. having a awesome chip like sammy will patch the problem .. but never solve if the OS is flawed and uncontrolled!
Samsung came out of block feature which is good IMO and .. they should also follow sony in creating a way to control all these apps!
