Sadly samsung marketing its not a octocore. its dual quad. if was ocotocore it would have a MTK8592 onboard with 8 cores, so why say ocotocore when it clearly is not.
Mali-T628 MP6 is substantially slower then the 578mhz Adreno 330 in the Snapdragon version. If you have a choice get the phone with the S801 not the octocore.
I wonder why Samsung devices could be that too EXPENSIVE? Is this mean that expensive gadgets are the excellent ones? Are there ways to remedy this thing? Phone features could only be good from 6mos to a year then again a new one will come out & prices depreciate. SGS5 should have included putting dual sims & radio in it's specs.
AnonD-99237, 29 Mar 2014most commonly used word on gsmarena opinion section is CRAP and all posts using it are as usel... moreThats coz when most people are commenting on samsung and especially it's exynos chipset dats the only word comes to mind
What he/she said about the Exynos disadvantage is not totally false, especially in custom rom. Samsung is known to not provide the sources of their home-brewed processor, and sources are important for developers to make such a compatible and stable custom rom.
Mali GPU ?? seriously?? I mean how could they betray Adreno and how could they forget the beast Nvidia.

Its exynos waste.crap...
Only chipset dat can stand aside qualcomm s superb snapdragon ones are nvidea tegra's...
Exynos new gen (Gen 5) Chipsets are more capable in thermal handling. They work full frequency unaffected by extreme temperature (wiki Dynamic frequency scaling (also known as CPU throttling)). Quoted(http://forum.beyond3d.com/show...mp;page=30):
"getting to my point I have saw the highest thermal handling on the latest Exynos 5 chipset vs any previous qualcomm offering. My qualcomm GS3 and a friends GS4 qualcomm destabilize on high mhz or even stock 1890 if over 90+c which unless I go beyond the power supply of the battery has not been true on this 5410.
Thus capable of playing extended sessions of high end gaming lagless and no hiccups!Consider the extreme temperatures we bear in Summers and Winters in South Asia! Exynos is for us!
Quoted from a educated poster at XDA-Developer:
All of Qualcomm's chips through S-800 are based on five year old ARM designs. A lot has changed in five years. So while it's less "safe," I'd pick big.LITTLE over an existing Qualcomm chip solely because it represents the future. And in being the first to release it, Samsung's going to devote a lot of attention to perfecting it. As will the other 17 licensees. S-600 is what it is and its day in the sun will be brief.
There are three ways of transferring load from LITTLE (low frequency CPUs) to BIG,
1. Cluster-migration: 4 A7 or 4 A15 and not any other combinations.
2. Core-migration: Up to 4 cores working together with every combination possible.
3. Multi-Processing: All 8 cores can work together.
and samsung has categorically stated that the new implementation in S5 has the Core-migration variant working perfectly well!Multi-core processing is not feasible in mobile devices owing to excessive battery drain
I doubt it will have 4K recording .. Note 3 Indian version does not have and have the same octa core config ....
Why ??? again and again samsung is releasing two different versions for its phones.. Why can't they release the same phone with same features worldwide.. Why this desrimination against asians... Lets we all decide not to buy this phone and teach samsung a lesson..they may be big.. but they can't play the games like this. Let this S5 show less than a million sales in asian countries.. let's all decide together.. samsung we don't want to be the second behind US and europe.. Either release the phone with the same specs or DON'T release the phone here..
Hey guys i request you dont buy crapxynos octa core galaxy s5. Buy snapdragon model if possibe or just buy another snapdragon flagship. I had a exynos powered galaxy s4, it was laggy and buggy like hell, overheated after 1 hour web browsing(seriously?), no stable cyanogenmod or other custom roms(i wanted to get rid of ugly touchwiz). I gave up and returned it.
I don't think it can perform good without getting seriously hot.
N3 has lot of space to counter heat.
I think it will be a repetition of overheating disaster that s4 was. S4 used to reboot on its own whenever media scanner used to run.
Just a disaster. Better to buy HTC One M8 and keep a ultra slim digi cam in ur waist belt pouch all the time....
