Well what do u expect, it take's 370 mb

require around 130 to run half baked OS!

It's either 4 OR 1 working, not 4+1=5, that's just marketing and very wrong if you are talking about how the processor works, which is when "1" is working "4" is/are sleeping, or the other way around.
Also you can't compare a fully featured OS like Android against WP7, at least not yet, Android is way heavier to lift, and WP7 is very well optimized, that's the one thing Microsoft did right

I'll take the Tegra3 version thank you...Oh wait...I can't because on this side of the pond we have AT&Ts decision to dumb down our first crack at quadcore sweetness.in favor of LTE...(We should have quadcore and LTE) It must be a conspiracy! I pray they don't do this with the Samsung S3.

They did that because in order for the Tegra 3 to have LTE it needs a separate LTE radio. S4 has one built in. And the S4 is more or less an equivalent to the Tegra 3 in performance, it's just there were differences between those 2 devices in the video regarding software, not the processor, that made it seem like the Tegra 3 was faster. But if it really means that much to you, the quad-core Exynos chip should have LTE capabilities. If not, then it's most likely gonna run the S4, which will be less powerful than the Exynos because the new Exynos always beats the competition, and holds the title for a long while. But still, the S4 is plenty powerful, there will probably be virtually no lag, unless the user or AT&T does something software wise to mess it up.

I see a major error in this video. The phone on the left is supposed to be the Tegra 3 at 1.5GHz and the right one the S4 at 1.3GHz? The At&t version is supposed to be 1.5GHz as well (or PhoneArena has incorrect information about it). Also, both phones have HTC at the top where as At&t's version has "at&t" at the top.

Yeah, I noticed that too. The AT&T brand isn't on the phone line it should be. I think this is a bogus video

agreed lol. Lets see samsung conquered A-9 single core, A-9 dual core, and who can guess whats next? A-15 dual-core and A-9 Quad-core kings.

You guys are something else. When benches show your favorite processors losing anything, you claim that benches don't translate into real-world performance. When you win, you claim failure by the competition.

A15 is an architecture, not process size, clockspeed, number of cores, or even paired graphics solutions - or even benchmarks. Qualcomm based it off of their license of the A15 instruction set, and they may or may not be the fastest of the A15 variations, but it doesn't mean it's any less A15.

You can complain about the performance (out of both sides of your mouth if you prefer) all day long, but suggesting that it is not A15 architecture is a bit absurd.

Its not a15 its krait but they claim its an a15 equivalent. Clearly not. Also im basing it off of the the actual phone wuth t3 clearly outpreforming the s4.

i think you need to read up on your chips before reprimanding people. Qualcomm makes their own designs. They call them "equivalents" to compare them to ARM, but they are not ARM chips. They licence ARM for compatibility reasons, but they do not make ARM.

Honestly, they should have just called them "A9+".. because they are not up to A15 snuff.

remixa i found info on the sgs3 posted recently on engadget.http://www.engadget.com/2012/04/25/antutu-purportedly-reveals-galaxy-s-iii-specs/
A15 dual core here we come.

On a performance level I would say the S4 is closer to A15 rather then A9.
Maybe an A-12 ? ;)

No such thing. Its krait anyway not arm.

Your understanding of architectures and licensing of them is bad and you should feel bad for spreading misinformation.

They don't "license ARM", they make processors that run code written for ARM chips. They can be relatively compared in terms of performance levels, which is why people talk about Scorpion cores being a better Cortex A8, or Krait as being a Cortex A15. It's a valid comparison and you are a random person on the internet who doesn't have access to Cortex A15 anyway, so I'd rather take insider sources at their word.

Please kindly stop being so misinformed, Krait is only slightly slower than A15 clock for clock with more emphasis on power consumption.

are you just trying to argue for the sake of arguing? just what do you think it IS when one company uses code from another company? just think that over real quick and get back to us when you're ready. :P

Considering this video is fake, and that the S4 is the highest performing dual-core out on any smartphone right now (without being overclocked) I really don't see why you are giving Qualcomm so much grief about this.

My 3D with ics ROM at 1.5 get over 6300 and I know for a fact that my 3D is not faster then the One XL. If you look at the score for antutu the gpu of the One XL is better then the One X. That score is lest then a T2 score. It is not update for the new chips

right. The phone has not disappointed me so far. I love the light weight, great design and the finishing. Apart from the great HTC Sense overlay, I love how the phone feels on my hand and every one who has seen the phone has fallen in love with it. The camera is pretty awesome as i. it is a 2.0 - which means it takes great low light images and ii. it can take images whilst shooting video. The speed at which the cam focuses it amazing.
