newsflash - 99% of the consumers that are going to buy the Note 3 would just shrug and say "huh?".. then go buy the Note 3.

Most, MOST consumers couldn't care in the least what processor is under the hood. Very few even know who Qualcom is.. let alone what a Snapdragon or Exynos processor is.

Also, I maintain that if given 2 Note 3 phones, one with the exynos and one with the Snapdragon processor.. you would NOT be able to tell the difference.

Not 99%. MILLIONS of serial ROM flashers = seasoned users which roughly translates to about 10% thereof do care about whether if it's gonna be an Exynos or not device. Simply because typically Samsung will close off parts of Exynos rendering it literally gimped from going to 110% potential at custom ROMs.

Difference won't necessarily be determined by raw performance but firmware revisions' longevity, availability at delivery. This is where custom ROMs win over stock firmware.
