Quad-core Snapdragon with LTE would be great.

Few others have noted various lags when compared against the international version on daily usage.

So far from my own testing of devices with Exynos vs Crapdragon, Ill take the Exynos anyday over the Qualcomm offering...

Of course, this is from my OWN PERSONAL experiance using devices with similar specs but one with a Snapdragon and one with an Exynos, and Im not talking benchmarks either, im tallking daily use, gaming, videos, and some other every-day uses...

That would be way better than the 800 MHz Dual-Core processor in the 4S. Seriously what was Apple thinking, that thing should have been 1.2 GHz. At least they seem to have learned their lesson.

But why does it really matter?
I know tons of people who have the 4S and none of them have ever said anything about lag and slowdown
in the few times i have used their phones, i have never seen it either
I feel like this is only an issue if you are doing weird stuff like jailbreaking or running a million apps at the same time or something, although with the limited multi-tasking on ios that isn't even an issue

Well why would they build the next iPhone with a quad-core processor if a dual-core works fine

at the end of the day, it was just as fast. i think by now we should all be able to understand that performance is more important than numbers.

For games apple are doing the right thing by putting quad core albeit by the time it comes in October we will be hearing the news of next generation of chips to appear in android handset late 2012 early 2013. Beside the games the quad core might seem lost on an iphone as the ios is basically an grid app drawer launcher which basic set up needs only basic processing power

What? This means iPhone 5 will be based on an ancient Cortex A9 design?

Fail. The qualcomm quad-core S4 will eat it for breakfast

Why? By that time Exynos series 5XXX with Mali series 6XX will already be ready.

Actually I would be surprised if they use a quad core in the new iphone 5. With the limited multitasking the iPhone IOS has it's pretty much irrelevant to have 2 or 4 cores.
I would bet they are saving the quad core for their next iPad, not the iphone 5 and they'll use a modified version of the current A5 built in 32 nm (APL2498 anyone?) with some minor changes and a higher frequency allowed by the die size shrink.
Let's remember that Apple tends to do incremental changes every year. This year they'll change the screen but use the same processor.
That's at least my prediction. Apple would really surprise me with a Quad core!

yes, don't even compare them... it's like comparing a toy to a computer... You'll just end up embarassing the iPhone, and frankly, it's been embarassed enough.

Yes because Samsung would totally make the SIV with a smaller screen.
