By the time this becomes available, the Note III will be here and the Galaxy S5 will be around the corner with a better chip and LTE-A capabilities. I'll happily wait with my current S4.

LTE-A is not widespread anywhere in the world, except South Korea; there's no hardware support for USB 3.0; no capability to shoot and render 4k video; the extra computational power won't make a difference on current software... So I'm looking at the benefits of the Snapdragon 800 on the S4, I'm not seeing that many.
Sure, the GPU is nice. And so is the visual appeal of the benchmarks. But other than that, many devices, including the Samsung Galaxy S4, aren't using the capabilities of the Snapdragon 800 anyway.
