You uneducated. S800 is still halfbakefA9 A15 E5410 needs 3000+mah battery tobe on par with S800. If E5410 is clocked at 2.3 S800 is a fail! You are refering to 4+4 octo. But Custom Roms for having. All 8cpu running togeather will even score higher®

i think you are the one who uneducated if all 8 cpu running at the same time your phone will be melt and have the worst battery life in the history of smartphone S800 with HMp process technology is better solution powerfull cpu, powerfull gpu, and great battery life but if i want cortex A15 Tegra 4 is better option for raw power both in cpu and gpu

Samsung is trying too hard to stay number 1, wanting to be called the best, and made too many variants. I still prefer to be an early bird. If i bought a flagship like S4 in late Q4 then within 6 months it will become outdated because S5 will be out the following year in Q2.

That is how i look at gadgets, no kidding. I buy a new flagship within the first month after release (preferable on launch day itself), or it's better off not buying and wait for the successor. But that's just me. I dont wait for price drops - when it happens it is already old, and a successor is on the way.

I have the tendency to root for underdogs like HTC and Nokia; Apple VS Samsung is too mainstream.

While this may sound like Samsung's doing this to show off, there are strong indications that the Octa-core chipset is such an absolute nightmare that they simply stopped producing the 5410 and switching in the all-important Korean market to the next best available SOC. Of course it is also possible that with the S4, Active, One, LG Note, HTC Note, Infinity etc. all packing the SD600, Qualcomm simply doesn't have enough of those to ship. In any case, an early Samsung SD800 phone could lead to a streamlined GNoteIII launch.

Why is Octa-core chip nightmare ? Just wondering coz I've ordered one. Also, I don't think it will ever be available to international market IMO

Overheating. And also underproduction - they cant make enough in time. Probably not for you if you owned one, but there are many cases already if you read the forums. I'd like to see how the phone ends up if anyone tries to overclock it or make it run with all 8 cores.

And one more thing - Snapdragons are pretty much the best SoCs to me now, given LTE is integrated very well.

Samsung does things for practice basically. How do you think they end up making all these products that are cheaper than their competitors with equal or better specs? They make everything they can and their flagships are a culmination of what they learn with practice. That is what manufacturers do, learn how to manufacture stuff. Unlike Apple's crap philosophy about focusing on one product like the Jon Ivy video. You can only do so much on paper and then when you go to execute this perfectly focused plan that takes you the entire year to plan, you get antenna gate, apple maps, or nicks out of the box. Samsung will already know that chamfered edges on soft aluminum doesn't work for their flagship because they already tried it on their prepaid Samsung Galaxy Chamfered. That is the key to their success. Always manufacturer superior versions until you know every nuance so you can just own it when it comes time for the GS5. The HTC Butterfly and Droid DNA really helped HTC for example. The HTC One already has a lot of flaws but imagine how much more there would be if they didn't design the Butterfly/DNA first?

only to have call block feature and app auto update in mid 2013. I am utterly surprise they could be so behind time. Apple are really smart to make so much and yet give so little.

We're not talking about apple here. Windows phone optimized their OS too, and as a result they have few apps LOL just kiddin.

The Beast of Qualcomm. Neither more nor less than the S800.
