I want a lag free mobile experience and I am sure that exynos is not perfect but best choice I have.

Exynos currently outperformes most other processors on the market. With the introduction of the new 32nm Exynos, it promises to deliver more processing power with less energy use and smaller chip size, a very exciting improvement.

I would demand an Exynos processor in my phone or tablet because a beautiful car is only as powerful as its engine. The Exynos chipset is the supercar engine of the mobile world. When a device that was either expected to have an Exynos and doesn't...or had an Exynos but was switched for a variant model...you can almost hear the collective groan among sweep through the techie world. Make mine an Exynos!

I 'demand having an Exynos processor' in my smartphone and/or tablet because the Exynos New chip can come in dual-core and quad-core configurations which can switch frequencies from 200 MHz to 2.0 GHz; this means optimal battery efficiency whereby when the device is idle it will clock-down to preserve battery life and when needed it will clock at its' optimal performance speed while conserving battery life, what other CPU can do this [as well]? The new Exynos CPU are fabricated with 32nm technology, which makes them way more efficient than previous generation 45nm process; this obviously means greater performance with less power consumption. The new Exynos processors also come with a new 4-core GPU (also called 4 pixel processors) and 1 geometry engine with 128KB L2 cache. With integrated standard 3D OpenGL ES 2.0, the new Exynos can generate upto 57 mPolygons/s [That's per SECOND folks!!]; making it ideal for HD resolution games on Smartphones, Tablets and, yes, Phablets!!! Think about it: who wouldn't want a processor in their Smartphone, Tablet or Phablet, that can improve battery life by upto 50% (if your battery lasts 1 day, it will last upto 1 day and a half; if your battery lasts 2 days, it will last upto 3 days; etc). This is what the new Exynos Chip will do and this is why I demand it; welcome to the New Generation of Exynos.
I'll be honest, if I don't win (I hope I do:}), I will probably just sell my current smartphone with all of its' high-end accessories which would probably net me around $450 and use the cash to leverage the cost of the Galaxy Note.
This is what I've wanted since my very first Samsung, circa 2003, the SGH-i700; thereafter, smartphones got smaller (and, smaller) and, now, they're BIG again but definitely better. I have a Samsung Galaxy Tablet T849 but, I can not use it as my only device because T-Mobile has disabled the "Phone" feature (or, you can enable the "Phone" feature and lose 3G); we need Android Life to be fair; we need one Super Smartphone that can be a Tablet; we need a Phablet with Exynos; we need (and want) a Galaxy Note.

The exynos is top of the line, it makes the Note just that much better the power it holds isoutstanding and raises the bar for processors in phones , this processor is the cherry on the sundae

This is my third post in an attempt to win the phone of my dreams. I was lucky enough to visit the ATT store in my hometown. While there two folks were checking out the Note. I thought they were considering a purchase of the Note. It turned out that they were representatives from Samsung. They learned as much from me as I did from them. The gentlemen who hailed from Korea had the international Note with him. So there they were right in front of me. The Snapdragon 1.5 and the Exynos 1.4...Verdict: The Big E was faster. Do I want this phone with that Big E processor. You bet your sweet Phonearena @ss I do!!!

Wow, the Exynos simply outperforms the Snapdragon, huh? I mentioned how the SGSII with Exynos (Sprint & AT&T) was better than the SGSII with Snapdragon (T-Mobile). The T-Mobile SGSII showed signs of lagging, despite the Snapdragon cpu being clocked at a higher frequency than the Exynos cpu... I was surprised to be proven that numbers don't say it all... Exynos just is a better cpu than Snapdragons, and I see why there are a lot of people bashing on Snapdragon cpu's. I could really use a new phone as well, can't live with a single-core smartphone, too much lag, freeze, and crashing... Btw, my phone has a Snapdragon cpu, may be she's the culprit behind my phone's degrading performance...

some one decided to thumbs down comments complementing the Exynos processor... I don't know if it's the same person doing it, and whether that person was doing it for fun or from boredom, but it's annoying... Anyways, second post on this article, I could really use a Galaxy Note with an Exynos dual-core cpu inside it!!!

In 2010 Samsung launched the S5PC110 also known as 'Hummingbird' (now Exynos 3110) in its Samsung Galaxy S mobile phone which featured a licensed ARM Cortex-A8 CPU.
In early 2011, Samsung first launched the Exynos 4210 SoC within its Samsung Galaxy S II mobile smartphone. The driver code for the Exynos 4210 was made available in the Linux kernel. and kernel 3.2 support for the Exynos 4210
In later 2011 Samsung introduced Exynos 4212, as a successor to the 4210, that features a higher clock frequency and “50 percent higher 3D graphics performance over the previous processor generation". Built with 32 nm High-K Metal Gate (HKMG) low-power process it promises “30 percent lower power-level over the previous process generation.”

I heard this phone is a lot better than the iPhone i have now. If received the new Samsung Galaxy Note phone I would give my iPhone too someone I know without a cell phone.

I have been following this phone since it came out overseas. I waited and waited. Until. It finally made it to the U.S. Now I want both versions in the palms of My hands. To hold destiny in them would be a dream come true. The bestvof both worlds.

It will make doing my homework on the go, sooooo much easier! Plus looking up info during class will put me "in the front of the class" by ascertaining the answers way faster than my classmates. I will proudly be the nerd or teacher's pet, if I win (:
