I just received my S4 & it comes with the Octo chip. Looks like the S4 in South Africa will all get this version
AnonD-135156, 28 Apr 2013Wow, if its really 8.8 gb then its. A rip off. Still the. Best smartphone available. Does you... moreNo it didn't come with wireless charging facility. The box included a headset, a charger and a data cable + the handset along with some manuals .... Thats it.
Anonymous, 29 Apr 2013But it LAGS in chrome and the launcher for S4, as do so many applications.
So the ultimate ... moreLag in android has been a lie since ver 2.1
Show your proof for this.
Samsung has the best and fastest UI and these benchmarks have shown their 8 cores can crush the old and slow
vlad, 28 Apr 2013i dont understand, why would you need so much power?htc one is way betterBro, for the bragging rights I gained, get it?
AnonD-129766, 28 Apr 2013maybe it needs a patch or firmware update from samsung nothing serious ;)Hope so!!!!!
AnonD-137068, 28 Apr 2013yeah there were lags,also the ais gestures and smart pause features arnt much impressive, when... moreSMART features are not working properly, my frnds were laughing at me when i tried to show them the SMART pause function.... Samsung please fix it!!!!!!!
AnonD-103136, 29 Apr 2013oh by the way... this are the fast CPU to date.
Exynos 5 Octa - Quad-core [1.6Ghz A15/1.2Gh... moreBut it LAGS in chrome and the launcher for S4, as do so many applications.
So the ultimate question...... WHERE DID THAT BENCHMARKS rating goes?
Even S3, HTC one and Sony does not have the same lag as it does.. Its shameful.
GET the Exynos overclocker to equal the 1.9GHz of the Snapdragon then rerun tests.
AnonD-140557, 29 Apr 2013Hi hi! Got the s4 I9500 tonight. For me Pro: Good screen with high ppi, Good battery life, Li... morewhy buy it then if it is boring old design, easier to go the store and sample it first, before buying???, i have it and i find it amazing, but i do agree with the storage , it is paltry, 8.9Gb is pathetic, not sure how to install apps to the sd card instead of device to help, the camera is not the best, it is very good, but actually in 16:9 it only shoots at 9.3MP, there are better camera modules out there to be honest, but for me, day time shots are VERY good, and i have a pro camera for shots that ANY camera phone will never produce, so no big deal
Hi hi! Got the s4 I9500 tonight. For me
Pro: Good screen with high ppi, Good battery life, Light, The best camera on smartphone I've never used,Slim and Powerfull, Micro sd,
Cons: Boring design fed up of plastic,Screen is not big like Note 2, Limited internal storage only 8,8go?, No huge difference in day to day use with s3 , it does not make people saying ouaaaaa
oh by the way... this are the fast CPU to date.
Exynos 5 Octa - Quad-core [1.6Ghz A15/1.2Ghz A7]
Snapdragon 600 - Quad-core [1.9Ghz A9]
Tegra 4 - Quad-core + 1 core [1.9Ghz A15] with 72 core-GPU
Tegra 4i - Quad-core [2.3Ghz A9] 60 core GPU
*those above mention chipset can achieve 25,000+ scores in Antutu benchmark. (tegra 4 chipset are not yet tested,)
Great job then! I see those A15 chip are powerful with the combined power of those A7 power saving chips-both quad-core (FYI: Octa-core on Samsung wont run all 8 cores in 1 time. The quad A15 cores are used for heavy task while the A7 cores are used for task that dont need extra processing. Pretty good scores by the way that Octa-cores punch in. But im kinda torn between the new chipset that NVIDIA released. The new Tegra 4 features a quad core clocked at 1.9Ghz, A15 SoC based cores, with additional 5th core for power-saving. PLUS a 72 GPU CORES!!! Im waiting for this chips to be deployed in several devices this year. Im telling you its gonna be fast!
Anonymous, 28 Apr 2013High benchmark is good but it does not mean it has no problem completely.Even very good deskt... moreMy PC doesn't lag when running windows 7, my fairly bad laptop doesn't even lag when running it. Maybe buy an SSD?
tush1114, 28 Apr 2013May be, but samsung has used a quad core processor for power saving which isn't capable of pro... moreWhhaaat? It's got 2 quad core CPU's and will only use the power saving one when it can afford to so not during games unless the game isn't demanding.
AnonD-129766, 28 Apr 2013Yea, there is lag.
Now, show me a video with lag in retail octa core version.
Show me i... moreyeah there were lags,also the ais gestures and smart pause features arnt much impressive, when set to fast,the smart scroll stops responding, had so much expectations from samsung, bt it let us all down....
Or may be the on which I laid my hands on may have some problem...
