The Galaxy S4 continues surprising us as even after we got our review unit based on the Snapdragon 600 chip, Samsung outdoes itself in the Exynos 5 Octa version of the handset delivering even better results...

He called you out, and challenged you to counter with an intelligent answer, and this is what you come back with? This proves you had no answer for him, as you met his challenge with a cop out...you got owned dude.

Alright, since you two just don't understand the basic meaning of a FEATURE, and cant read properly, I'll break it down to you.

If a pc runs a bigger app or a bigger game, it still uses the same feature as a smartphone.. just on a bigger scale.
It's the SAME core function.
A faster processor is not a feature.
Faster memory bandwidth is not a feature.
More RAM is not a feature, nor is the amount of hard disk memory.
It's all more of the same properties that make a computer, be it a smartphone or a laptop or a desktop.

Here's how a smartphone TRUMPS a pc feature wise - it can be used for EVERY basic function that a pc can provide, yet being a:
- telephone
- handheld camera
- GPS navigation device
- handheld music player
- pedometer /personal training device
- handheld gaming console
- mobile hotspot device
- remote control device
- wireless TV attached device
- personal assistant with superior voice command software
- augmented reality device
- mini meteo station
- a medical diagnostic device
- remote camera
- handheld e-book and e-magazine /PDF reader
- handheld USB hosting device
- digital handheld note taking device

NONE of the above is possible with a pc

Now, who's dumb, again?

..and of course, i missed some:
- a handheld radio
- a walkie-talkie (push to talk function)
- a metal detector

There, that should cover it

..and s**t, of course I still missed some. Lol:
- NFC device
- optical scanning device
- ruler and water level tool(via the accelerometer and gyroscope)

And that, my darkjedii, is how you OWN someone

You are kidding me right? Chaoticrazor never had a intelligent reply in his life. He can't own anyone if his life depended on it.

Did you even read the conversation?

Here let me translate it for you.

Darac: Yes, you can't.

Translation: Smartphone and PC's have very different features so you can't compare them like he said when he said "Yes, you can't". He basically went on about how each has very different hardware features like different sensors etc.

Chaoticrazor: Duh duh duh duih

Translation: He basically goes on a rant about what a PC can do better than a smartphone like the Note 2 when that is not even remotely the topic here. Darac says they are different and have different parts. This moron goes on a huge rant saying the PC is more powerful when Darac never even claimed that it wasn't in his original post. Talk about a stupid moron this Chaoticrazor is.

Basically, the only thing he does in an argument is to attack to person he's arguing with. He's an expert in ad hominem attacks.

You do not need to counter retardism. You just have to look at the retard with a puzzled and empathetic look and say...okay there buddy...

I suggest you read the posts from the beginning before picking sides to see that none of Chaoticrazor's replies make the least bit of sense.

Read my above post, you mindless bad little joke.

Funny thing is actually that you think I take you seriously, on an intellectual level.
You're so tiny.

This is getting interesting.
Didn't want to barge in but hey, make me a part of this whole enlightenment.
How will you develop an application without a PC?
How will you root your device without a PC?
How do you think Android would pass through tests without the power of a PC?
All the features may not be available on a PC, that's because most of the features you mentioned will be worthless on a PC!
You say NFC...does that explaination do you good? You carry CPU and tap that large thing on another CPU and loh, the image is sent! Does that make sense?
Try hooking up a 1TB external hard drive directly on your Android...do it!

Well, I see you're not understanding this either.
Again, the things you mention aren't what I was talking about.
Why are you misinterpreting my simple point that a smartphone is simply FAR MORE feature packed device than your laptop?
When have I ever said it is more powerful, and more capable for things involving a keyboard and mouse?

Still don't understand?
Well imagine a situation where you are only allowed to use one electronic device in your life.
Which one would you choose - a galaxy s4, or a laptop?

I don't get what you mean by your NFC rant.
With a NFC smartphone, you simply have a secure digital payment device at hand, if you want.

Btw, yes it is possible to develop an app, even with smartphone only:


And here's your 1TB Android:

Both points are irrelevant to my case though.
And my case is still about smartphone simply being a beyond comparison more versatile and feature rich device overall.

Hats off for "wasting" your time nailing them all, darac!
I myself would not have the patience to do so. Not to mention that some still won't acknowledge your points since they are irrational biased haters(yes I'm looking at you chaoticrazor).

Don't let a person like that get to you.
He is only pity worth.. a mildly annoying fly that makes you feeling not worth your energy, but after you had enough, makes you finally get up and squash it like a bug he is.

LOL You truly are stupid aren't you. I am not even taking part of this conversation. Where did I even mention PC vs. mobile?

You have proved time and time again that you have zero ability to analyze a posting.

No, it's a still image with audio. Not a video.

And why would you do that instead of just sending a video in?

So you can send them per e-mail as if they were ordinary pictures? Or for a presentation?

98. Taters (banned) (Posts: 6474; Member since: 28 Jan 2013)

Sure it is. The only thing that makes sending videos a bitch is the file size and time needed. With an ordinary picture with sound, it is just an ordinary jpeg, which is an ordinary picture, with a tiny wav. file attached.

Or at least it should be.

its like a greeting card not to mention sending a video through message is a smaller more distorted quality not to mention not take up as much space. its for human beings quit being a nerd and realize people like things like that remember cards and frames you can add sound to why not on the phone now they simply life
