Okay, in the whole world, no one or nothing is perfect!.but having said that, the Samsung galaxy s4 (I have the i9505), is really amazing (for to date), and so if there will be a version with the snapdragon 800!?, obviously it will be really beyond senses!!!! (To date)
bruce.w, 18 Jul 2013so you really think that most wp8 users just bought their first smartphone as wp8?If you use y... moreI have a Lumia 900 and a SGS4 and both phones work great. And I have not had any lag with my SGS4 thus far. Am I saying that androids don't have lag? No. Am I saying that Lumia's or any other device does? No. But I will say that to just make holistic generalizations is inaccurate.
All this bashing of other devices just because you prefer one over another is childish.
popye, 18 Jul 2013Apple is the benchmark of all smartphones, tablets and computers. That's a fact.Yes, Apple is the the vanilla of electronics. Mediocre. Limited. Restricted. Good on the outside though.
No matter how many models they release samsung will come up with s5 next year! And then they'll hold all the updates and sh@@! For s4 just like s3 and note 2 not getting the damn update even after a loong time from release !
STILL WAITING FOR 4.2.2 update samsung!!!
Even with greater performance. It is still the same as the other s4 versions. What's the use of having a greater processing power if you only surf and chat? What games that utilize the performance of the smartphone?
samsung should make the snapdragon version available in India of s4 i9506 and the upcoming note 3
I bought my S4 second week it came out, this version will launch with the Note 3 in September, i'm i bother not in the slightest.
My S4 won't feel any slower & the days of having a top smartphone for a year are over, you are now looking at a 6 month cycle for this year at least.
In another 6 months after the I9506,the S5 I9700 will launch with either Samsung own properly working octacore, or a new Snapdragon processor.
If you already have a S4 now & thinking of getting the Snapdragon 800 when that comes out, well that just silly as it still a S4 with a slightly better cpu, it won't offer anything more than the current S4 I9505 & won't feel any faster in real world use, if you buy a smartphone just to run benchmarks all the time well comon that just sad.
Samsung please release IMMEDIATELY worldwide this device. Snapdragon800+LTEadvance+android. I want to buy it IMMEDIATELY, it is the best phone of the year. Clocking android at 2.3 ghz is superb, zero lags, perfect performance.
So many kids around here
Thanks Gsmarena.com for the news
Thanks Samsung for the new Option
Anonymous, 18 Jul 2013Mostly UI. Web pages have more been a slight toss up. And no it's only bar small marginsstill no prove for your answer?only ui?browsing speed a "toss up"?yup,pretty sure you've never used a wp8 device ever...now none of your comments will be valid till you have a proof to show...
Irelia, 18 Jul 2013But is it actually faster when both do the same tasks such as loading a website and navigating... morei don't know about the tasks,it has a different multitasking which allows only those apps to run which have a special permission to do that(stuff like whatsapp,ucweb can work in the background),i dont know how it decides that....though i know about browsing,and it is damn fast, 920 outperforms s3 which has better specs by a far margin...
