meh the BEAST is NOT coming and even if it did it will not live long. OCing the snapdragon 600 to its limits won't do it good for very long especially when the snapdragon 800 is coming out 2 months after the s4 release. Also let's not forget the IPHONE and its quad core cpu + rouge or powervr 554 gpu which is going to dominate the gpu side for this year. There is no way this stray dog will hold the title for long... consider it beat. BWAHAHA

Nobody is sure about snapdragon 600 being used in s4. Samsung knows snapdragon 800 will be out soon and s4 is the flagship for the year so most probably It'll be exynos 5 octa in the international version and snapdragon 600 in us version

But most of nerds who like boasting about specs are in the US, so their version of the S4 will get beat pretty by apple or T4.

That's true. People who reside in US might need to get an unlocked s4

Those scores belong to and Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 at 1.9 MHz instead the 1.7 MHz in the HTC one. It's merely 10% higher.
Exyons Octa has 4 A15 and the score should be much higher in that case.
So for the leaked benchmarks is in all of them clear. If they use the Octa kudos to them for keeping it so secret, as not even ONE benchmark has leaked out.

It most likely will top most of the benchmarks, but this still doesn't prove whether the phone has the Exynos Octa or Snapdragon 600 in it. Remember, there were rumors that pointed to a 1.9 Ghz Snapdragon 600 processor which would put it above the HTC One and LG Optimus G's 1.7 Ghz clock speed. This could possibly give it the edge in benchmarks such as this, so that's why I am saying for right now it is inconclusive which CPU we are seeing.

Tyler is right. It's the 600. If it was the Exynos, the benchmarks would be much higher.

samsung galaxy s4 is the most anticipated android phone in the world, we all know that the s4 will have good specs and it will be very fast, i hope the s4 will look better than the s3, i hope that its made of aluminium, removable battery and sd card slot are really important, but if the ativ can be made with aluminium, then the s4 should be made with aluminium as well

the ativ is made of plastic which looks like brushed aluminum. it seems the design got you.

Yes, the ativ isn't made of aluminum like the apple products or the new htc one, but I still don't think that it's made of plastic, but it feels better and richer than the s3.....I would like that material or coating on the s4 if we don't get anodized aluminum

47. techspace (Posts: 1036; Member since: 03 Sep 2012)


Actually you are right, it's pure plastic which looks like aluminum, it still looks better than plastic because of that colour, but lets hope that s4 is made of aluminum, or at least with that virtual aluminum on the Ativ lol....

benchmark? how about the design? its too big for a smarthpone and too small for a phablet.. 4,2-4,7'is still the perfect size for a smartphone. look at htc LG BB and sony's designs,. samsung is just lucky to build a name. quality wise,samsung is a no no. thats a fact. and dont ever compare it with apple's quality.coz ya'll know the answer.

Sorry about your tiny hands. The SGS3 is the prefect size for my hands.

Apple's quality????
Yea they were first to release bendable phones that will be scratched out of the box...

Somehow, I wish the S4 would be a flop, because if even the rumors and leaks are this awesome, it probably means I'll have to shell out money to buy it to replace my S3...

Gee, this must be how Apple fans feel all the time...No wonder Apple has their current release strategy...

If its octa core then not impressed....it might be 600 because see the difference between one , optimus and samsung , the increase is around 200 which can be attributed to overclock and also software optimization..
