Ofcourse iphone is the best by your logic as it is best for some if not most. I dont have anything against that or your nokia or sony or htc.

Its just that you cant call it BEST if they are all equal. To be the best it needs to be above the rest. And how will you quantify that? By screen size? No. By camera pixels? No.

Yes you are right. By sales.

You're absolutely right! I forgot how terrible leading in profits could be.

So where is the 32,64GB version....

Now come on Samsung, this is the 2nd year round you are using A9 Cortex Cpu, A15 should be a must on the S4.

Who cares about 4G, those 4xA15 5410 are much better than the S600, and S800, half A9, A15 Chip, by Snapdragon.

I'm happy and lucky getting mine in few days time, Exynos 5410 Pure, full A15 Cores.

the krait cores in the snapdragon arent A9 they're somewhere between A9 and A15.

"I'm happy and lucky getting mine in few days time, Exynos 5410 Pure, full A15 Cores"

horrible trolling yet again. the exynos is a quad core cpu with 8 cores. no more than 4 cores can run at one time. taken from wiki: "1.6-1.8 GHz quad-core ARM Cortex-A15 and 1.2 GHz quad-core ARM Cortex-A7 (ARM big.LITTLE)[32]". so much for your full A15 cores. i would love for you to get the exynos gs4 and see your face when you find out it's not full A15 cores.

bad troll is bad.

There is root.

Custom Roms and Kernels, where you have AOKP Rom where you can have the option to run 4 cores or all 8 cores running togeather.

You are a novelist, and still don't no nothing.

You are comparing A15 to half A9 and A15 vs full A15.

really? all a15 running together huh? so will the exynos gs4 magically have 8 a15 cores? it has 4 a7's and 4 a15's. and i know nothing??? lol. keep posting. i love how you keep making yourself look bad.

What you talking about.
I said 4xA7 and 4xA15 will run, there's also an option where you can have all 4xA15 to run, or select 4xA7 to run, or run all 8Cores togeather.

Aokp, cynageon mod nightly, Aosp, persus kernels, siyah kernels, chriskelo, pacman Roms....

Misconception #5: The two clusters have their own frequency planes. This means A15 cores all run on one frequency while the A7 cores can be running on another. However, inside of the frequency planes, all cores run at the same frequency, meaning there is only one frequency for all cores of a type at a time.

read and learn. they cant all 8 be running together, they would all 8 have to be the same frequency and since the a7 and a15 have 2 diff frequencies and only 1 frequency can be inside the frequency plane, they cant all run together at the same time.

Cpu threshold changing voltage control is available on kernels, you need to be a advance user to play around with that.

Go and write command scripts to alter.

Anythings possible on Android...

And why the hell would I or anyone use an outdated A7 2009 cpu scrap, dustbin it, A7, it's all about A15 near i3 Cpus in speed.

Lol before the Exynos 5 was even announced it was known you can force a big.little chip to run with all cores on.

Just add more storage capacity and all will be forgiven.

I love the way Symbian handle storage but still it was not perfect. C:\ for the system applications and registers; E:\ for internal storage; F:\ for external storage; G:\ for external storage via USB.

I hope Android gets to implement this scheme in the near future. Go Android! :-)

More like exclusive, and you can't have them. Stop being jealous you. If you don't like them, root it and delete what-ever you don't like and then you will have 14GB space left, or looks like you're not smart enough to do that....?

i'm enjoying myself correcting your misinformation.

for 1, you cant just delete "whatever you dont like" because the touchwizUI is kernel deep. if you delete something with root you can get a com.android.* error bootloop that keeps popping up on you. that is very annoying.

second, the format specification for 16gb will only leave you around 14.9gb. (16 000 000 000 / 1024^3 ~= 14,9 GB) the gs4 rom is 2gb. when you get the gs4 you only have around 9.5gb for user. so you're deleting 4.5gb of stuff to get back to 14gb? and you dont even know that the exynos gs4 doesnt have full A15 cores? lol. trolling denied.

E5410 is a A15 core, are you unaware, or techless, or what.

So your telling me it's a A9 Cortex?

Lmfao.™

Who and why would I troll Android and Samsung, look you're new on PhoneArena and you don't even no the people who likes and dislikes what platform or brand.

Dude Android Samsung Google other Android oems Ftw, with the Trademark™ ®©

wow. you really dont know about the exynos chip huh? you are like teaching an old dog new tricks. old dogs are very hard headed and dont want to learn. yes the exynos has 4 a7 cores (not a9 like you keep saying, you're still lost). and 4 a15 cores. that makes 8. you know 4+4=8. you can do that math right? here's a little reading for you to do to fix your trolling wisdom so maybe next time you troll about the exynos gs4 you'll know more of what you're talking about.

What are you talking about? I'm referring to the snapdragonS600 cpu.

your previous post said "E5410 is a A15 core" but now you're saying you were refering to a snapdragon 600? you really are lost.

They will probably just clean up junk and allow you to delete more stuff.

But if anybody other myself acturlly watched Google I/O last night, you'd know that the S4 running Android Stock will only be availible in the USA on the carriers Tmobile and AT&T.
There was no mention of it being availible in the UK
Also the stock android S4 is gonna priced at $649 which converts to about £425 but by the time the UK government has put tax on that we're gonna be looking to pay about £500 for one (if we ever get it in the UK)
