I also think the ram has done something butthere should be some other changes too.

Samsung were already ahead in this but software wasn't optimized to utilize it. It is now i guess. clock speed doesn't really matter much.
AnonD-78030, 21 Oct 2013Yeah...!! Thanks man.. The benchmarks have hugely improved. in quadrant i got 17030. That's one hell of a score and almost on par with snapdragon 800.
I just wanted to say this.
more benches coming soon in 30minutes.

AnonD-78030, 21 Oct 2013Download quadrant standard and go in system info. The middle tab. Sorry for late reply. late reply?? Dude you were superfast. There is a bad news. that is opengl es 2.0 only in quadrant.
I am really upset on it. But I have heard that powervr sgx544mp3 supports open cl. If imagination gives us this in the future, that will crush opengl es 3.0 by a mile.
have a nice day
will, 21 Oct 2013but how was it?? is it a good update?
It's looking great upto now, The phone is blazing fast. It opens everything in sub-seconds. The colour reproduction is really improved and everything looks better and sharper. Reading mode is enabled. The camera app loads around 4 to 5 times faster(around 0.1 sec) and takes really better photos. The contact app bug is finally gone.
Sorry i can't say everything now as i haven't seen it enough. Will give you a complete review tomorrow covering all the aspects.
Have a nice day.

Anonymous, 21 Oct 2013SHU.YAD. welcome back -even though u have been unnecessarily rude to me .. but now some sugge... morein iit bombay we have 300 mbps lan. So i am not a fool to update OTA. Plus kies downloads the whole firmware and i like it as it removes any bugs in your system.
I didn't do factory reset before firmware update but i did it now after it. And reset before is only required if you have some problems so that any virus gets deleted before and not damage the newer firmware.
It took 8 minutes in total. 2 minutes to download 1.6 GB firmware, 3 minutes to copy that and 3 minutes for install.
I wasn't rude to you anytime. It was the other way round always. You mocked on my age and wrote in really very bad language. Read your previous comments again. You were sarcastic and really insulted me. If you tend to improve i look really forward to it. I have no hard feelings for you until you tell anything bad about me or mock me badly.
I had left this forum but really the 4.3 is great enough to make it almost a completely new phone.
If you are improving that's really a good sign. You can ask anyone out here that who was rude.
This comment is written by me in really positive sense.
have a nice day.
