Yes Qualcomm bringing the best everytime...

So if you run after for updated specs everytime then you have to change your phone within every 4-6 months.

I agree once this is out optimisation on apps for the 600/800 will stop the the cycle will continue leading to not really having true optimisation for the processors! Focus on battery life and letting developers optimise for every single app!

According to you the Note III is outdated too.
I pity you people who measure the validity of a device by the 'newness' of the hardware.

That was sarcasm. But i'll take the pity, i may need it when i'm old and sick and ugly! :)

This will be another snapdragon 600, small performance increase over the s4 pro. The real deal will come out later with true 64bit and krait 500 cores + possible hexa/octa + adreno 430.

Yes like First 6 months flagships will be with this..
And next 6 months flagship with what you said.
I am also imagining like that.
Time will speak.

Why do you need a new phone when you have s800 , 2or 3gb ram,8-13mp cameras,1080p screen,3200 mah battery, nfc,bluetooth 4.0, microusb 3.0, wireless charging,5,5.5,5.7,6inches screens.
Almost all the new flagship have the above specs. It will be better for once if we consumers stick to the devices we are rocking now so OEM'S and app developers work on optimizing their hardware and apps for us.

And with all these raw power the chip is going to use and Qualcomm will say its 50% more battery efficient then 800. Its pretty freaky as chips and displays get powerful and better but even more bettery efficient then previous gens. Imagine some day a chip so powerful but didn't waste battery. :/

Qualcomm on a mission. This is probably the first step towards a 64 bit chip they are soon to introduce.

Tegra 5 and Intels 14nm will have full 64bit first.

Baytrail is already 64bits

TSMC should be given credit because they manufactured the Snapdragon processores.

I wonder if people are still calling Qualcomm processors crapdragon.

21. Shatter (Posts: 1970; Member since: 29 May 2013)


They are crapdragon compared to Intel CPUs but Intel's GPUs suck still. The solution OEMS are using is dedicated power vr gpus to bypass their crappy integrated.

No matter what phone you buy, just remember that phone will be outdated/old technology as soon a you leave the store. Kinda like buying a car from the dealership. These companies got us so addicted to this "new technology" that's its becoming scary. I'm still enjoying my S4 with unlimited (no throttling) 4g LTE for $70 a month. But I probably will "jump" whenever the new Galaxy S (5, F, J) or whatever its going to be called in Q1 2014...

Ever since becoming a Nexus-A-Holic, my "spec" chasing days have fallen to the pits of hell. My 12 month old Nexus 4 may not necessarily "benchmark" with todays best, but it certainly provides a smooth, powerful, stable & stutter-free performance which, in my opinion, you can't ask for too much more.

At this point, I can't see going well out of my way to upgrade to a device that doesn't provide an A15>, 64-bit processor, which obviously isn't available now, but can't be too far around the corner.

32. Razrman (Posts: 68; Member since: 05 Dec 2011)


I second that. I'm rocking a Note 2 with 4.3 AOSP in it and I can testify to the smoothness of the phone.

Nexus 4 or the previous nexus phones were never that good to be fair(it wasnt better in any aspect than its competitor). But its nice to hear someone has lost interest to the ever increasing spec race.

I wonder if a dual core will out perform this lol if its raw specs apple has them beat even though i will never own an iphone still very impressed that a dual 1.2ghz outs any chip.

imagine next a quad core with same chip as apple you would have alot of juice left to play all day on the phone, speed is great but like someone mentioned the battery will be drained faster.

31. brrunopt (Posts: 398; Member since: 15 Aug 2013)


whats the point of comparing the number or cores is the size is complelty different.. Even a single core at 500Mhz can out perform it , as long it is big enough...

That's only because Apple is the first to be using 64 bit ARMv8 cores, you'll see all the other major SoC vendors (Qualcomm, Nvidia, Samsung) making their own dual/quad/octa core variations of the instruction set in early 2014; Nvidia and Samsung using pure ARM Cortex-57 and Cortex-53, and Qualcomm licensing it to make their own architecture like Apple has. This power is nothing new, it's just the first to hit consumers.

I just got my new phone that has SD800 recently, and now whatever new SD1000(?) leaking some rumors. I hope this new chip will not available anytime soon early next year, because it's make me feel my phone kinda outdate early.

It will, late adapter or not one does not dictate the market for billions of others to follow. Besides with the SD800 your device will be futureproof for at least 2 years.

Apps developers didn't yet optimize all apps for S600 and S800, Qualcomm announced S1000!
