Samsung is not going 2 put 5440 in the sg4. Even at 28nm, it would use 2 much battery & it would be overkill. The duel core a15 wil be more than enough power.

That is DEFINITELY not going to happen. A 28nm quad-core Samsung Exynos 5440 will be VERY efficient, just like the 28nm quad-core Qualcomm Krait S4 Pro. Remember the Samsung Galaxy S IV is going to have a 1080p True HD Super AMOLED screen. It's definitely going to get a quad-core Exynos 5440.

I also remember the nexus 10 runs at 2560 × 1600. So why would 1080p be a problem for the a15 duel core ? Also, there is the fact than Samsung has already stated that the a15 quad would first be used in tabs, tv's & notebooks.

Do you really think Samsung would release the Galaxy S IV with a dual-core instread of a quad-core? I think you know the answer to that is no. Samsung's baby is the Galaxy S line. Tab's, tv's & notebooks are all second fiddle compared to the Galaxy S line. If anything gets a quad-core Exynos 5440 it will be the Galaxy S IV, then everything you just mentioned.

Samsung exynos 5250 already has the strongest GPU, if exynos 5440 will have it a little bit overclocked then it is going to be a beast. Mali T-604 is already more powerful than XBOX 360. And quad-core A-15 is going to be more efficient than quad-core A-9. Exynos 4412 which is A-9 is already efficient, so I can immagine that exynos 5440 will be even more efficient. The only SoC that will be able to compete with exynos 5440 is Tegra 4 with Kepler GPU. S4 pro will be out of the ´´performance´´ game, the only thing where S4 pro will be better is that it has an integrated 4G modem.

The mali 604 is not faster or stronger then the Xbox360 or the PS3

Well, according to Qualcomm it is. Qualcomm said that Adreno 320 has about the same graphic power as Xbox360. And Mali t-604 is more poweful than adreno 320 so by that logic mali t-604 is more powerful than Xbox360.
