-> Easy to set up
-> Smooth touch
-> Light weighted
-> Camera takes decent photographs. Secondary camera is very good though.
-> Battery looks good. Have been using for almost 6hrs and it got reduced from 55% to 35% only, with 3G on and downloaded 5-7 Apps from Play store
-> Thumps up to Android Lollipop. Its UI is very good compared to the older versions.
-> Got a discount of 10% on SC credit Card. Yay
-> No screen protector with-in the box, finally i bought from the latestone.com with extra pay
Lmao the amount of jealousy here is among the top... just like Samsung... How ironic.

Please answer from a general mans' perspective. Okay so could someone be kind enough to tell me how and why does the core a processor has make a difference? I know its kind of absurd but I really want to know the difference!
The performance, yes I know there is a difference, but how does it- say in day to day tasks affect my phone? Or my user experience?
Gionee Elife E7 Mini Is The First Octa-Qore Device.
Have we lost the first essence of the phone? We mainly use this for calling and messaging. When the two giant mobile OS was introduced Android and IOS, I was amazed on how those OS change the celpone industry. But now I have lost the enthusiasm. Every now and then both are developing a more powerful phone device. For what? No offense to other's comment here. As I have mentioned before, what is the first essence of the phone? Maybe one day they will come up with this specs:
Network: Intergalactic G (can call other galaxy's planet) simless
Body: Type-Liquid type
Display: Type-Super Hologram
Motion and voice command
Memory: Sky is the limit
Data: Light speed
Camera: Primary-Electron microscope
Features- can see your atom and even take picture of nucleus, proton & electron
Secondary-Magnetic resonance imaging
OS: A.I. T-3001 (Artificial Intelligence)
Chipset: Nano technology
CPU: Variable core
GPU: Geforce Galactor
Power Source: Tesla wireless electricity transmission
At the end I will use this to call my families and friends. I wonder where in galaxies they are?
thekalmkritik, 29 Dec 2013Open up Exynos sources/docs properly or gtfo Samsung if you plan to dominate the Android scene... moreLMFAO! A later phone coming out with the SAME chip and this time might have a small benchmark advantage and you scapegoat it onto TW?
Lol. Please think before typing.
Qwerty hope, 28 Dec 2013another marketing strategy of samsung, another props crops pops that are not really true like ... moreFirst off apple started it by purposefully going out of their way to do so no matter what...Even like...using it to early even if it has more negatives than positives.
Second..Any phone with more ram uses more ram. 1.84 is free after system requirement is ALOT and almost the full of the maximum others offer before system takes any. And they are the first to do. Way more useful than a badly implanted 64bit.
And the octa was dual quad upfront. Never claimed it would be 8 cores nor did they promise an unlock.
Alphadan, 28 Dec 2013Less teasing and more updating your devices on time.... S4 and Note 3 are still waiting for Kitkat. And they are getting. Even the S3 will be in the next couple months. As well as most likely the minis and a strong consideration of other cheaper devices....
On the other hand who all has this done already?
The Cosmicist, 28 Dec 2013Oops, don't look at these results:http://gfxbench.com/device.jsp?benchmark=gfx27&os=Androi... moreNo. The Note was clocked higher than might be suggested. Not the S4. And nor are they the exact same.
And again. Minimal advantages and sometime being outdone despite the clock difference of 1.6 to 19. and 1.9 to 2.3.
And again. It took a long time to get the Snapdragon that good. These are early A15's on a new architecture and build. Just needs newer optimizing.
S800 has advantages. The LTE and camera are not chip dependent the same. That is more a device advantage and does suck they were left out.
The Cosmicist, 28 Dec 2013You know that comparing clockspeeds is only relevant on the same architecture, right? So compa... moreTry reading something before replying. Your whole basis of replying is off misreading what I said and incorrectly gathering what I meant from that. Only to make an obvious point that was already implied by what I said.
thisismynickname, 28 Dec 2013Actully, I read a review of all top chipsets of the year, and the author stated that the advan... moreFirst of Krait 400 cores are well optimized Cortex cores. They are not Cortex A15 nor are A15's krait based. Krait is cortex based.
Second the differences are glorified featureless app launcher comparing to a highly adapatble feature rich computer like customizable OS. Al though IOS7 has made a change finally.
And the Apple chip took a bad step making it 64bit with 1GB of ram which could lead to some really bad negatives in memory management.
I don't care about exynos devices when there are Qualcomm S800 and Apple A7.
Anonymous, 28 Dec 2013I wouldn't get my hopes up. At CES 2013, Samesung announced the Exynos Octa to much fanfare. W... moreWhich means they knew that it has potential, but was not the over taker yet. Mainly because of the A15. All models of phones can have heating issues. And they were upfront about the dual quad thing from the start.
And much lower clocked devices being on par does show good usage.A15 is just not as optimized yet.
I already used s3 & s4 this devices most powerful but look like compare as sony & Lg not well.so pl samsung made a stylish design.
I guess they are gonna unlock GTS for Note 3 and Note 10 2014 Edition.
P.S. GTS=Global Task Switching= Ability to use all 8 cores together for short bursts of superlative performance. Or to use the cores in a more efficient manner For. Eg. While playing games, the background stuff can run on an A7 core, while the gaming work can be done on an A15 core.
Hoping for a Quad Core big.LITTLE SoC announcement. 8 cores are kinda useless for thermally constrained devices, like out smartphones.
