AnonD-109968, 06 Feb 2013I agree why 8 cores it's stupid what's the point😒they have to over compensate for the lack of performance when it starts to lag. The S3 had major problems once the phone is loaded with lots of apps. It just lagged. So in order to fix that, Samsung is putting in a faster processor.
i think ot will not taste good. It will damage teeth if anybody attempts to eat it. Gorilla glass is tough. But eating a real gorilla is tougher
and all this will be a friggin waste if they put this on an 1800 mah battery.!
8 cores of cpu why? what they wanna make a computer but the internet browsing not as good as computer ? whatever:D
Can't wait..I ony wish Samsung can work on the build quality and style a little bit. Not just plain plastic but other material as well an a bit more effort on the design. The GS3, though of good quality plastic was just plain looking. Then to add insult, the Note 2 was an exact replica of the plain, boring design.

software wise, this phone is like cinderella....
... so what good is this phone if software isn't even making use of 25% of the hardware you ask? yup, you got.. useless. its like putting a v12 engine in your car with a 2 gear transmission.... and that 2 gear transmission slips causing it to LAG everytime you want to go to high gear.
we'll see how much you fan boys talk when ubuntu OS, Jolla OS, mozilla OS, Tizen, next gen WP, iOS 7 are released this year....you'll be the first ones to ditch your beloved "beast"
AnonD-80584, 06 Feb 2013ahah no.. yawning is wat you do when you scroll on a laggy SG3 and come back three days later ... moreGet a life boy. Everyone knows how the S3 perform and the bricks!You know what?Windows is a lag free OS?Ok. But how? When that BRICK cant do any multi tasking, where does the question of LAG arises??!Now thats obvious.Those bricks can only be used to weigh things!Lol ..Great invention by Nokia.. A great Brick worth $500+!!
Don't compare Android to iOs because iOS lacks features. If apple would put lots of features in iOS it will lag more than Android. iOS cant even multi-task.

If OCTA core was jus for name sake then sony could ve implemented in their so called king SXZ!! But they dint cos they didn't innovate(Accurately,they fall behind sammy in any innovation).
SXZ is capable of competing only against year old SGS3(PS.It can be comparable,but it cant win thou).
So lets welcome the New beast(when i say Beast,it is a real Beast!)SGS4..
Rooney-, 06 Feb 2013Windows?!! Yawn!! zzzzzzzzz..ahah no.. yawning is wat you do when you scroll on a laggy SG3 and come back three days later and its still hesitating to move.
.. oh yea..thats if it doesn't restart on you. or show you a plain white screen forcing you to pull out the battery like i've witnessed.
[deleted post]Android is already as smooth as ios.. Compared to android, ios is suitable for feature phones.. That's why it doesn't require much hardware.. Coz it can do very little

EL-OH-EL at all these Sammy/Droid haters and Sony/Apple fanboys raging at the prospect of the beast S4.You guys talk so much cr** it's unreal. I bet even a 7 year old knows more about smartphones then you do. Atleast back your sh** up when you make judgemental and conclusive statements.
Android is cr**, useless and will lose? Yeah right. Even though Droid is the most feature rich OS and is maturing by the day. Lag? The occassional lag and you fanboys think you have the right to label these droid handsets as lag phones LOL the iPhone is known to lag. Everything lags but at different rates and with different variables. I've had a Note2 for around 3 months now and I can tell you that I have never experienced any major lag and only a few minor lags when I have over-clocked the phone with heavy tasks.
Everyone hypes about iOs, BB10, Windows and the new Xperia handsets.
The iOS and the iPhones are long gone. They got battered and demolished this last two years as innovation and development left them for dusts. Samsung and DROID in general destroyed the crapple. And it will take a major turn around for the toy-apple to regain it's status. The only reason it's selling well is because of it's rep but people are slowly learning how superior phones like S3/Note2/DNA/OP G are.
BB10? Nice try RIM and credit to their efforts. They've made a far better phone then it's predecessors but again their new OS is still not matured, the phone is still outdated and has no real value-factor that will make DROID and even iOS users want to switch to it. In short it will be a short-term success but ultimately not enough to stop Droid/Sammy etc.
Windows? I respect Windows. They still lack a solid app market and are still maturing by the day. They could become something but atm they're far behind DROID. Lumia 920 is decent - that is all. Only Nokia fanboys will hype it up no one else gives a sh**.
Xperia Z is the latest Sony flagship and people are comparing it to the year old S3. Benchmakrs therefore are obviously on Sony's side and even then with a years advantage it doesn't have drastic performance advantages over the S3.
Software wise the S3 is strong enough and as a phone strong enough to compete with the Xperia Z. Never mind the Note 2. Just imagine how badly the S4 will humiliate this new "king" as people imply it to be.
Hate as much as you want. Samsung innovate. The S3 and Note 2 prove that. People always bang on about how Sammy only care about Cores/Processors etc but they're wrong. Sammy do much more. They implement innovative software features like Direct call/Smart alert/Smart rotate/Multi-window/Pop up video play/ integartion of the S-pen and more comprehensive features. And what does the HTC have of uniqueness? Beats? LOL please. Nokia? They have some cool camera software/hardware but that's it. LG? They have a inferiority complex and like to copy Samsung. Apple? There innovativity has been "sliced", pun intended.
And there is nothing wrong with more cores. OCTA core which may sound like 8 cores but in reality functions much different. If you noobs had the decency to read and pay attention you'd know that only 4 cores operate at a time depending on the volume of the task/power required. Hence this mean for the end user will get more battery as the CPU will be more efficient. How is that wrong? Why should Samsung NOT do this? People complain about poor battery power and as soon as Sammy tries to become efficient people are like "OH No wee no want more cores we no like samsung for just giving specs". Give it a rest. I'd like to conclude that these are the type of people known as "whiners" or "want-it-all" they're never satisfied with their own lives so they hate on others. How boring and unproductive but let it be.
I hope Samsung take their handsets to the next level and destroy these pretenders and show everyone why their the number one in the market.
