yeah S600 is powerful enough to face samsung 5 octa and just like you said it have excellent battery life with the right optimization S600 will have the same power or even more than samsung 5 octa just like nexus 4 vs xperia z, even with bigger screen xperia z score much more better than nexus4 i think the real processor war is tegra 4 vs S800

No, the Snapdragon 600 will still be featured on US phones. The reasoning behind it is the Exynos 5 Octa does not have the production capacity to produce a large amount of chipsets as of right now. They just started to make the chipset, and they don't have enough to sell worldwide. Samsung kind of rushed the chipset's production just so that they could put it in at least some versions of the Galaxy S4.

I knew this 2 weeks ago. Since Samsung already got more than 10 million GS4 pre-oder from worldwide and they have to make them on their first shipment, they had to prepare S600 version as well which is still good enough for normal users. Exynos octa for their home people first and Geeks and tech savvy in the world

they are close enogh LG and ZTE will use them soon and i don't think both tegra4 and S800 is have problem with power consumption samsung 5 octa is just a gimmick many people think with 8core 5 octa will be powerful just like TROLL said crapdragon is weak but the reality 5 octa not to much powerful than S600 with optimization maybe S600 will have the same power like 5 octa lets talk again when Tegra 4, S800 and 5 octa come out and we will see wich one have better performance and battrey life

the samsung octacore is between a s600 and s800. Out of all those I would say Exynos 5 > Tegra 4 > snapdragon 600/800 for battery life. I don't think theres any real world test on the octacore yet though.

yeah i know, there is no tegra4 , S800, or samsung octacore real world test yet, it just many people think that samsung processor with 8 core will be the most powerful. i don't think octacore is not between S600 and S800 when it come to processing power, because samsung design octacore for power efficient with enough processing power. and if the octacore benchmark is true, S600 just need some optimization just like XP Z vs nexus 4 same SOCs but different performance (antutu Z 20000+ vs 15000+) (quadrant 8000+ vs 4000+) and S600 have proof it have excellent battrey life samsung octacore is balance SOCs, but Tegra 4 and S800 gonna be more powerful without having problem in battery life
