Because America's LTE isnt compatible with the Quad Core processors.

I would love to see this here in the U.S.A. with a bigger battery but if released now i would be a bit upset since i just paid full price for a dual core s3. I suppose you have to have something more to look forward to in the galaxy s IV in 2013. That is unless u believe the world will end on dec 21 this year, in that case enjoy your last phone.

Why not switch off Lte by default,and turn it on when needed?

I wonder what took them so long to arrive in south korea while these phones are made in korea itself. Did they give the galaxy s2 lte/hd lte some time before it's already considered old?

over exaggerate much on the battery? lolol. "i just woke up.. my phone has been on the charger all night.. i need to find another place to charge it!" lol

easy answer.. turn LTE off unless you are doing heavy streaming.

I would still kill to get my hands on that version. quad core and 2gig ram. :) i want to see the benchmarks.

Someone must have paid off money somewhere dumping these Qualcomms into both htc and samsung high end phones for the USA.

Don't get me wrong.. I'd love to have this phone.. But because of not knowing when the US would get the S III.. I went for the One X. You can't go wrong with either phone . And that the S4 can put up a 5,500 Quadrant Standard score being dual-core.. The One X is actually a pretty impressive phone itself :)

However.. after the recent forced OTA update pushed to the One X from HTC.. I've yet to see a single Quadrant Standard score touch 5,000 :( Hopefully HTC will repair the damage done.. The OTA update was pushed early June
