Who cares if it is not quad core?

Do you realize the Snapdragon S4 is by far more power efficient with 28nm?
It utilizes a Krait system which allows different cores to clock at different speeds, so if you were doing a full on game at 1.5 ghz and had a paused video in the background, the paused video would be running at a much lower level, rather than having both at 1.5ghz. Exynos 4 doesn't utilize that. Also the Exynos doesn't have the SoC for all the radios like Qualcomm has the ability to. That would mean if we had the quad core, it would require a seperate chip for LTE, this would result and even more power consumption. All in all the cpu is switched in best interest of us, and we swap out the quad core, for 2gb of ram?! Knowing how demanding apps can be these days, 2gb of ram is a very wise move.
