These chips are becoming very powerful. NVIDIA, Qualcomm, Samsung, & Texas Instruments all this year will drop some very sweet & powerful processors. To me the REAL differentiator will be who has the BEST battery life.
I am going to stick with my Samsung Galaxy Nexus until all these processors are all out. I really am going to go for the battery life. There is so much great work in the root scene with kernels that I can see an efficient quad-core processor paired with an efficient kernel last in the multiple days realm, like maybe 2 to 3 days especially with a 2000 to 2500 mAh battery.
I am so excited about what's coming this year, especially in late summer/early fall. These next gen phones are going to sh*t on everything that is out now & will be coming out this spring/early summer.
My advice is to wait until late summer/early fall to get a new phone, because what will be available then will literally be light years ahead of what will come out this spring/early summer.

i hear ya. Thats why im waiting for the A15 chips.. they should bring a big improvement in battery as well as power,even from what Nvidia has out now. Thankfully, we should start seeing them by summer so its not too long

I will sit out too. Wait for the world to end this year and pick up the best of what is left.
