Xperia Zucks, 09 Jan 2013Yeah! With worst displayAMOLED is the one who sucks... Oversaturated colours.
Put this into android = 1 day usage + 1.5 day standby
Put this into WP8/iOS = 5 day usage + 1 week standby
So sammy you know what to do... put this in the next ATIV series!!
i read almost all comments here, and seems people do not have idea what Samsung is preparing. The 8 (eight) cores is somehow an intelligent chip process. If you need heavy usage like games, you use fast cores, if you need standby or less speed you use low cpu cores. Advantages: A LOT. You reduce 50% or more of battery, 60% reduce of temperature of phone. Overall process optimization of whole phone. Samsung galaxy s4 will have this NEW 8 cores. Top1 phone of 2013. Samsung rocks.
Anonymous, 10 Jan 2013IF you learn to read the bigger deal is that it has 4 very low powered cores to do most of the... moreHow many percent people playing such a heavy games on their smartphone? And how many percent apps are running with that amount of core? Having more core means huge amount of money to invest purchasing a smartphone. Which is still you cant do everything in one device self only.
Sammy might go for more cores like AMD but yet Nobody can beat a dual core Atom. That's what intel is about. But unfortunately the marketing point lies on more number of cores.
Anonymous, 10 Jan 2013someone is a little buttmad because his phone is 6 cores behind ;)Awww. Looks like somebody is too drunk on specs to realize it's still basically a quad core chip.
Android should solve its problem before its too late!
They patch ui speed with proj butter.. But in fact not a solution .. Task still get done slowly..
They have full multitasking... But practically no way to handle each task manually when face with battery drain.. And the problem worsen with each app installed. An another issue.. Their apps lose their current states most of the time!
Solution is not looking at awsome chip like this. Don need fancy ui eye candy... Like swipe notification.. Change your core that handles application states before u get too bloated!

No one can use 350000 apps! You mean processing power? You r wrong. It take 100% power when it load a webpage or shoot multiple photo. With this new chip, there will be a breakthrough in camera software.
techno, 09 Jan 2013that's the truth, a quad core proccesor it's not nessesary faster than a dual core! most times... moreIts the code that makes it faster, but its also the code that make it doesnt run at all. Can you download play any media format on ios? Why complain when someone do a better job? a core i7 run any thing faster than a core i3, right? So what to complain?
Anonymous, 10 Jan 2013It's kinda funny. Quad-cores aren't optimized yet. How can simple tasks makes full use of it's... moreIt will take a textbook to explain how big.LITTLE works. And if you dont know how something works, it doesn't mean that will never works. You central of the universe.
I don't mind any advancements in technology so good enough but if they don't put those flexible unbreakable screens in their phones it's another 808 year for me

PR0_G@M3R, 09 Jan 2013Don't mean to be a fanboy but this is seriously amazing. If they could come up with a PC mode... moreYou r suffocating without a smartphone, but you r dead without a pc. Smartphone can never replace pc, just a good add-on. I did sell my pc and regret.
By the way only either the A7s run or the A15s, so there are max of 4 cores running at any given moment.So actually any SoC packing 4x A15 cores will run as much as good, if not better as this hybrid.
For the poor believers that talk about polycarbonates, please read how many materials are actually usable in polycarbonate plastic, which is neither strong, neither scratch resistant.
There are special nano coatimgs that make things like plastic scratch resistant.
Deal with it.
Id go for S4pro phone in two years. No to Exynos and Tegra, so many issues with those chips, dangerous.
Strudel, 10 Jan 2013Who cares. The Snapdragon S4 Pro already runs anything on Android with absolutely zero hiccup... moreHardware must go first, software come later. Would developers write a software that can not run on any available hardware? No. In two years, you will regret you cant play full hd games. In 6 months, you will regret you cant shoot multiple HDR photos, edit full hd video.

The os i... moreIF you learn to read the bigger deal is that it has 4 very low powered cores to do most of the work and the A15's for heavy things like gaming.
