S800 will still lag. Here's why.... Touchwiz has lots of features and is Ram and CPU hungry Having live widgets Facebook Calendar widget Email widget Skype Tango Viber Instagram Flicker Twitter 2 email accounts sync GPRS WiFi Ram booster 3 games active Contact widget Bookmark widget All these running will leave you with 300mb of Ram and also lag proper. So for a smartphone it needs the power of Intel i3 or True Exynos A15 5420 or Tegra4 or the omap5s not Snapdragon S800. Snapdragon are far behind than Samsung, they don't have a pure A15 SOC CPU. Wait for the S900 ™®

can you even define lag in this sense, a millisecond wait?with all the scam s4 has for instance? well, I don't think that would bother me some.

Second line down "at a special Samsung Unpacked Event". When are these Samsung Unpacked Events ever not special?

This'll make S4 owners really really jealous. Too bad they didn't wait ha!

Until this day i can’t understand why so many fanboys think that Note 3 will beat anything on the market. phablet will never beat pocketable smartphone in sales and other manufacturer also will make phablet with great specs even Sony has officialy announced the first device with S800 If Note 3 really have something special that will crush the competition please tell me!

Here comes the Exynos 5420 A15s on 22nm at 2.0 or 2.3 ™®

22. yudi.nemesis unregistered

Haha... that thing doesn’t even exist now, and when that thing is finaly out Qualcomm or Intel will have better chipset. but for now S800 is the best

Its on the Nexus 10. But that's on 28Nm with dual core. Only silvermont is on par with Exynos A15. But wait you still have the A57 which has the same power of the Intel i5 on 2.8 GHz. So Intel is a fail with ARM.... ™

44. yudi.nemesis unregistered

hahaha.. what a joke i'm asking anyhing special about note 3 and you answer is Exynos "5420 A15s on 22nm at 2.0 or 2.3" and after i said that those exynos "doesn’t even exist now" you said one of the stupid things i've ever heard (Its on the Nexus 10. But that's on 28Nm with dual core) You can continue to fantasize about Exynos gimmick, but in reality S800 is the best chipset available today

No the s800 is less powerful and way behind A15s. You should no your a techy. But looks like your a snapdragon fanboy giving credit to. ™

45. yudi.nemesis unregistered

let me tell you why S800 is the best because it's the only chipset available today with the greatest combination of power, battery life, gpu and connectivity

and if you can find anything special about note 3 that will crush the competition please shut up!!!

Lol what can you do with flexible screen? Bend it everday just to impress!! Its an innovation but lacks for everyday and everywhere used.

26. yudi.nemesis unregistered

Sorry but no matter how much money that samsung have, they still unable to make flexible smartphone, right now the only benefit is durability that will help samsung bad design construction

Im going to save my enthusiasm for the release. The S4 wasnt what I expected and as for the Note 3................Samsung cant say that they're going to dominate the "phablet" market when Sony and HTC are going to take a crack at it. These last 2 years have been so crazy that people have bought more phones outright than waiting on their upgrade!!

im still hoping that sammy will create a new design for the note 3... Samsung is the Number 1 brand here in the Philippines.

I think getting rid of the negative button was a positive approach. o_O

Hope the Note 3 really does bring it's A-Game, a flexible 6 inch display sounds promising and I hope to God Evan Blass, aka EVLeaks is wrong about the 5.7 inch screen, way too small for a phablet. One thing i resent with my Note 1 with 4.1.2 is the choppiness between opening/closing applications and constantly crashing browsers that freeze too and slow the ui down, if anything project butter has turned it into project slug. Hope Key Lime Pie eradicates all of this choppy performance with the 512 MB of RAM (I'd still want 4GB of RAM on board) with 20nm 64 bit capable processors with ARM 57 on board with the new Mali T678, I want performance exactly like a Macbook Pro with an Intel i7 but i'm dreaming! It's looking like the Note 4 as opposed to the Note 3 but i'll wait around.
