Galaxy Note 3 fights self, barely wins: Exynos 5 Octa vs Snapdragon 800 versions benchmarked

Galaxy Note 3 fights self, barely wins: Exynos 5 Octa vs Snapdragon 800 versions benchmarked
Samsung is outing the Note 3 in two versions, depending on what processor they'll contain. The variation for LTE carrier networks will be shipping with Qualcomm's top-shelf Snapdragon 800 - a quad-core chipset clocked at 2.3 GHz - while the others will receive Samsung's homemade Exynos 5 Octa, running on 1.9 GHz. 

Which one is better for the Note 3? Well, they are both about the most powerful mobile chipsets you can get at the moment, so no sweat whether your phone is running one or the other. 

As you can see in the video comparison below, pitting Note 3 N9000 vs N9005, the synthetic benchmark results are not with a difference that should make you lose any sleep over the chipset matter.

If you're gonna lose, why not kick your own a$$. Note 3 is beast.

Doesn't matter which one wins or which one loses at the very end SAMSUNG wins by a large margin to other OEMs.

Samsung "cheats" in benchmarking scores though.

Samsung benchmarks cannot be trusted.

Dude.. it's comparing the Note 3 to ITSELF.

Nice try at trolling.. now move along please.

Are you stupid? Specs don't just make or break a phone.

Sure they play a part, but it's the exp that counts more. Nothing competes with the note 3, regardless of how much horsepower it may have.

G2,HtC one are also doing the same , but unfortunately they Dont sell much and Samsung becomes the target for all this ,and people like you who have much of time to spare (or been paid or whatever ) just spread these things ,so get a life or something ,benchmarks are pretty useless unless OEMS stop manipulating these benchmarks and Samsung is not the only one.(you can look at anands comments in his note 3 review)

G2 for me too A$$WHIPE. Not that the Note3 isn't a awesome phone. Your comment is obtuse, so you deserve your title troll.
