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...

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.

cheated benchmarks aren't going to help itself at all here.

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.
