*Remixfa goes out of his way to find excuses to bash these new S4 chips*

Nope, not yet. I wait until the chips fall to make my decisions. I will happily bash the S1,S2, and S3 as they all suck (compared to their competitors) though. New generations bring new winners. I am a tech enthusiast, i root for any and all tech. No company owns my opinion.
Thanks for thinking of me though :)

i ment to say
one thing that being behind does for a lot of people is make them rethink their decisions and a lot of times they come out stronger than ever after a few last place finishes. Qualcomm could quite easily pull out a monster chip this round

Not bad the 28nm S4 Krait processors are probably going to come out Q1 of 2012. That means that the 28nm S4 Krait quad-core should be out by the time the new HTC Evo hits in late Q2 or early Q3 of 2012. This also falls in line with Sprint's timeline of releasing their first LTE phones.
These Qualcomm S4 Krait processors look to be very powerful SoC's. The battery life on these 28nm processors will be phenomenal. I can't wait!

I'll personally skip the dual-core gang and wait for Sony's or be it Samsung's Flagship Quadcore Phones. . .

this is definitely a great chip but we\'re not sure what 2012 has up for. we might see some better TI and Exynos...

Who uses EvDo-Rev B? No one that I know of in the states does to my knowledge.

i remember reading about the MSM8960 a few months ago thinking it was pretty impressive. i haven\'t changed my mind on that...yet. forgive me for being skeptical.
