Just the other day, we told you about an alleged trip through the AnTuTu benchmark site made by a Samsung Galaxy Note 3 unit; the unannounced phablet scored an impressive 33,082 tally with a processor clocked at 1.9GHz and with Android 4.2.2. driving Miss Daisy. At the time the thought was that this device was being powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 due to the clock speed and score...

Ouch, looks like those who really wanted the Exynos 5 Octa (or even the 'enhanced' version) will be getting re-jec-ted! I don't doubt the story would be the same for the other carriers too.

As a current Note 2 owner this new Exynos 5 and the Snapdragon 800 both are crazy upgrades. It's like saying a Bugatti Veyron Super Sport (267mph) is faster than a Lamborghini Aventador (219mph).

i think people will not be asking about what's the processor under the hood. If they see a Note 3. They'll buy in a heartbeat.. Well, the average person i guess.. :-)

I think if exynos octa have lte I think they should use Exynos octa here in Philippines coz I really like Exynos Chipsets coz they are so powerful.

No... I don't want a S800 chip. I want the Exynos Octa 5420 running the show.

+1. Why does Sammy do this to themselves? No one wants to have a red-headed stepchild. It may be time to wait and see what the competition puts up against the Note III. I am happy with my Note II. It would seem the imperative to upgrade just got a bit less.

Because Samsung knows 99.99% don't care

IDK about 99.99%. Maybe 95%. GIve technically knowledgable consumers some credit.

Were the Minority, DXD. Lol, if anything, we are less than the 0.01%.

To be honest I think Samsung needs Qualcomm because they could never supply enough Exynos 5420 to meet the demand.
Samsung sells too many phones to just be the lone supplier of EVERYTHING.

The S800 is better than the original Exynos octo but it appears this new Octo is better than the S800. I just know that which ever one they pick it will kill my Note 2 Exynos 4.

going to be a tough battle between Note 3, Z Ultra, Optimus G Pro, K900 from Lenovo and that Asus whatever-Pad, awesome!

Why is the benchmark kinda low compared to the other phone test with a snapdragon 800 in them?

Because of TouchWiz I guess. Running quite heavy. Maybe it's a PenTile display that will be harder for the device to draw. Or a combination.

I think smartphone is already powerful enough. We need bigger battery and more internal storage. 4500mh+ and 64gb would be phenomenal for Note 3.
