Brand recognition. They make good flagship models, but that doesnt mean they make good midrange or low end models (many of them lag). But, when the word spreads around from a S3 or S4 or Note2 user saying Samsung is good, those with half the budget of a flagship model will also go for Samsung. That is exactly how Samsung sells average stuff in millions.

Nexus 4 is the cheapest device I know of that has 100% no lag.

It is practically impossible to have a lag-less system.

I guess specs do matter. You can have cake and eat it too. But if you don't care about specs, there's always the Moto X, Nokia, and BB.

Wow dude, it seems like you're the one who's looking for trouble here.

Why would you mention me? Did I ruin the comment section? Did I post fanboy hate comments?
Can you clarify?

You don't contribute much within an article. If you haven't gotten the hint, bparkerson is saying the exact same thing, so are the people who are thumbing him up.

if in case Exynos 5420 comes up in Note 3 then only we'll be able to compare it with Snapdragon 800 powered G2

I hope it does. I'm leaning towards the Note III this year.

Hope so. I used to own S4 and the only way to make it smooth by switch off the all gimmick feature and disable some built in apps that loaded by Samsung plus reduce the transition graphics effect to minimum.

PS. I used octa-core version!

Compared to the amount of sales, the number of fanboys from Samsung are very less.

If you compare Sony or Nokia fanboys, Samsung fanboys are miniscule. This is considering the fact that Samsung probably makes every damn thing under the sun.

Samsung sprays models at us, not all or are any of them equal.

But can they make enough chips to put in their own devices? They seem to always use Qualcomm in all their phones outside of Korea since the OG Note. Exynos are great chips if you can get one but most of the world that buys Samsung gets Qualcom chips.

Pretty much unobtanium vapor whisps to us in Canada at least, like last gens release.

Much ado, no show.
