i am not impressed .. really... i am sure that i can do the same with my HTC Sensation ... turn it off for the ride then on for capturing ... i bet the phone was using a "FAST BOOT" feature that every high end phone uses today .. anyway .. nice clip :D

Any phone can do that if you shut the phone off, I think they are implying that the phone stayed on while it was being shipped around the world by mail. It was a nice & cute Apple like video though!

You know these S4 chips no longer qualify as "CRAPDRAGON" anymore. These are very capable chips, just wait for the, 2.0GHz dual-core Krait with Adreno 320 (S4 Pro) & the 2.0 to 2.5GHz quad-core Krait with Adreno 320. You will be eating you words. The 28nm techonology makes a world of difference.
These are clearly not the Snapdragon's of old.

even i am starting to admit the new snapdragons are immensely powerful

u know when exynos or omap a-15 cpus are out, S4 will be a Crapdargon!

Your logic is broken because then when the new S5 comes out your Exynos & OMAP A15 will be crap also. That is the way technology moves, you are only stating the obvious.
Now the difference between a Exynos, OMAP A15 & the Krait S4 will be negligible. The REAL difference will be in battery life & due to its 28nm tech the S4 Krait has a distinct advantage over the 32nm A15's from Exynos & OMAP.
Again all this speculation is pretty silly, let’s wait to see these chips in action before talking about them. All I can say is that ALL these new chips will be bad ass & the old “crapdragon” stigma will definitely end. Whether you believe it or not these new Krait S4 are very powerful chips!
The dual-core S4 chips are standing tall with the Tegra 3 that is quad-core. I can’t imagine what a 2.0 to 2.5GHz quad-core S4 Krait with Adreno 320 will compare to the Tegra 3. Let’s just say that it’s looking quite favorable for Qualcomm at the moment!

Don't bother with them. I don't understand the Fanboys in Chipset. The S4 is a good chipset and even if there is a different average consumer will not be able to tell the different.

Yeah I know exactly what you mean.

I have an idea to show how efficient they are. How about showing people using the phone for 10 hours and the battery not going dead.

Is it true s4 is very efficient in battery consumption? So does it means non-removable battery in one s is not a very bad thing? What other device besides htc one that use s4 processor?
11. kshell1 (Posts: 1112; Member since: 05 Oct 2011)
no other phones beside the HTC One series use the s4 currently

The Asus Padfone, Panasonic Eluga Power are two i know off the top of my hat but they are not out yet.

S4 is more efficient, but their first versions are using more power than expected...
It should be better than the Tegra 3, but not as good as it can really be.

I love the disclaimer at the end, saying this phone used an extended battery and was shut off in between video shots......still a cool video.

wow! we did this with a film camera! some of the rangefinder enthusiasts did a round-the-world travelling camera, where one rangefinder camera was "sacrificed" to go around the globe and snap a picture at each destination.. and the films are developed and the prints are given out to the users..
this is so refreshing to see this! brings back memory!
i don't care about the single charge claim, i think it is a great idea of travelling phone/camera so that we will know each other better and make new friends!
