[deleted post]I would consider waiting a month or two for the launch of the Sony Z2 . It comes with a snapdragon, an adreno 330 and 3 gb of Ram. Look at the local pricing and for a detailed review on this website.In the meantime the prices of S5 will also come down. There is a 15-20 percent cash back for Citibank card users. Look into it.
Whatever differences are there between the two versions of the s5 should not make any perceptible difference in 80 percent of the applications & games in the coming year but if you are a demanding user with a penchant for the latest HD games than the Adreno 330 based set will be the better bet for the future.
If you are paying top dollar ie a premium price than you should get the best product.
Lastly, IMO, as stated before, it also depends on how long you intend to use this product. If more than an year, say 2-3 years , than a 3 gb Sony with an adreno chipset will afford you a better experience.
if only for an year, than the S4 now between 28.5-30k is a good buy.
Hello gsm arena yestarday i purchased s5 nd its an awesome phone bt im nt satisfied with d processor can u plz explain me abt d processor whether It supports HMP and hibernation technology and also show d benchmarks of exynos vs snapdragon version
Nilo, 14 Apr 2014the S5 by far is the best phone on the market right now because of its finger print id they go... moreI believe to bring you in this world, ur father got the idea from your grandparents. But is that called copy???

Is anyone else facing similar issue?
hello gsmarena.........i m requesting u to plz make battery test of exynos verison ASAP....... plz request from Indians.......
Though im not a Samsung user but I must admit that samsung technology is the best among all phones.
Samsung rocks in every single way/
so in the end, the Exynos version is 1.5GHz and 2.1GHz or 1.5Ghz and 2.1ghz?? Can someone clear this up?
abhi0061, 14 Apr 2014Plz tell me which version is better snapdragon or exynos Snapdragon is better than exynos
Nilo, 14 Apr 2014the S5 by far is the best phone on the market right now because of its finger print id they go... moreu r extremely right mate..whatever peoples judged Samsung copies from others, but Samsung got highest mobile technologies on this planet.The most important Samsung creates their device by users needed.
the S5 by far is the best phone on the market right now because of its finger print id they got from iphone and the water proof ideia they got from sony , samsung is moving up faster than any other brand on the market .(im a very big fan of samsung).
Anonymous, 14 Apr 2014If your information is only based on benchmarks then that's very stupid and yes you dont have ... moreDon't talk nonsense & belittle others if you are unable to come up with specific benchmarks/statistics/figures to prove your point.Such assertions in the absence of proof only demonstrates a juvenile nature & myopic outlook
Benchmarks are important , a point buttressed by the fact that even phone companies & review sites including this one use them to show how the phones match up to the competition.
If these differences,which you in your limited wisdom termed insignificant, weren't so important, perhaps there would be no product differentiation between various brands. In Such a situation, there would be no incentive in choosing the latest model of one brand over the other.
A difference of atleast 25 percent in performance is significant and cannot be ignored as trivial.
Ironically ,I have owned an international version of the S3 ( An exynos/1gb ram/Mali-400) and have also had an opportunity to use the european & US version of the s3 (snapdragon/2gb ram/Adreno 225) . The latter was much smoother.
The international version of S3 has 768 MB (1 gb version) of free RAM which mars the experience in daily usage. Further the mali 400
sometimes proves deficient in high end gaming.
How all this translates into practical considerations is solely dependent on an individual's consideration.
I have made my point many times over. How you use your phone and where you spent your money is your own prerogative.
Suffice to say -Choose to ignore the inevitable at your own peril

I recommend you go through it before... moreIf your information is only based on benchmarks then that's very stupid and yes you dont have proof. I can also show you many different benchmark links that only shows the difference as minimal. Your saying the 20% will make a difference now and the future... well let me tell you something, if the galaxy S3 which was 2012 can still handle everything in 2014, then what makes you say the exynos on the note 3 will lag behind?
All you care about is benchmarks when reality is, the phones now are soo powerfull that the apps, games and software's cannot catch up to it.
Anonymous, 13 Apr 2014i have the note 3 exynos version, plz show me proof that it laggs behind? or tell me a HD game... moreDid you click on the link mentioned in my original post?
I recommend you go through it before accusing anyone of talking without proof. It compares the Adreno GPU with the Mali one.Multiple benchmarks are used , which makes the results quite convincing & conclusive.
Ofcourse,per se, the MALI GPU delivers good results, so the question is not whether it can or cannot deliver the odds.
The contention is different.
According to the comparison on the website mentioned in my earlier post, the GRAPHIC performance of the phone with the Adreno chipset is atleast 25 percent higher than the one with the MALI one.
Somewhere , now or in the future, this difference will count.
When you are paying the same amount or even more than the European & US customers, this difference is unacceptable.
S5 costs about $699 in most countries nd thats the snapdragon version but in india it costs 51999Rs which is way higher nd that too the exynos version
$699 is approximately 42000 Rs
If the s5 is available at that price India i would certainly go for it
