Actually I wish all models would feature the Qualcomm's chipset, I don't trust Exynos.
Fone Addict, 20 Mar 2013WTF!! Bye Samsung and Hello HTC One!Why HTC one has the same chipset at a slower clock rate so why would you swap "S ???
I want both, LTE and Cortex A15 in the same phone. So I wait for tegra4 phones.
Troll, 20 Mar 2013Well there is a thing called Root once you root ur phone with custom kernels u can clock the c... moreQuestion is whether the hardware will let you do that, you also have the issue of temperature.
see if anybody is buying s4 is for because octa core as design is same as galaxy grand buying quad core s4 is useless
Hahahah Noobs ! although for now s4 600 is best becuase it is already in market and tested by devs and works perfect although octa is new and only comes in s4 flagship so have to wait for devs to test octa then compare with S4 600 ..then well se difference have to wait till Q3 for best results of chipset from devs
Here in Brazil the LTE enabled version will sell for R$100 more than the 3g version. If the latter packs the octa core I will definitely get it, as 4g plans and coverage here are still way too expensive...
geordie81, 20 Mar 2013there will actually be quite a few of the larger countries that will miss out, any major carri... moreWell there is a thing called Root once you root ur phone with custom kernels u can clock the cpu A15 to 2.0Ghz and have all 8 Cpu running at the same time
Guys listen what you saying, s600 in. S4 should be disaster for geeks like me, A15 is destroying competition, it's doesn't matter what frequency has s600, A15 in exynos is in next level, gpu wise again exynos 544m3 is a best what android can get and clocked or not 320 can't match it, end of point total disasters, can't believe it :((( hell you Sammy
Just a few days ago, all Sammy fans were hailing Octa chipset and now boom - not one major market will get it lol. Sametime, Qualcomm chipset becames better then Octa... oh what a fun reading fanboys comments :)
that's one reason why it won't be supported by cyanogenmod, sammsung is the king of fragmantation,even 2d apps lagg on the best SoC if they are not optimized for it even apple boys use right facts about serious matters as software optimization,what will you do a powerfull cpu and gpu if it will drain the battery to catch up the frame rates?But you wouldn't care because you would have an expensive plastic galaxy...
Very difficult option...i have never used a smartphone at full capacity so even though exynos are bechmarks champions i think there won't be a big difference in day by day use ( movies, gaming, internet, so). I this case of normal user LTE counts more. If u are a really heavy user, a pro user than go for exynos instead of lte chip.
I think that in near future LTE will become more and more part of our lives so i bet on LTE and balanced hw and sw.
PS: what i like most is amoled screens. Slcd of Htc or iphone are very good also but they don't have those punchy colors to enlight your sight
Hi, 20 Mar 2013You are dead wrong Cortex A15 is much faster and also has a better GPU Who cares about... moreTwo quad-cores that doesn't operates simultaneously so i don't see the use of that processor in smartphones. its totally a waste of resources by the way. At least they should use it in tablets
Thank you Samsung
We didn't want the Octa chip anyway.
We needed the LTE version here.
I will go for the 3G Octa core version, I like speed over the 4G which is dosen't work properly in my country. My S3 is getting slower with the updates specially the latest Jelly-Bean update. let's see the benchmark records for the Octa-core S4 then to decide.
yan, 20 Mar 2013so it seems that all S4 phones in every country will ship with snapdragon 600 instead of Exyno... moreIn Asia, all of Asian countries will get s4 running on exynos 5 with japan being the doubtful exception. Australia,south America and Africa too will get it along with some parts of Europe.
