    Phones are at the point now where those spec bumps mean nothing to me. If you have a note 2, s3, nexus 4, iPhone 5.....those specs are meaningless. 1080p screens may sound appealing, but then again on a 5" screen you can't decipher 720 from 1080

    I can decipher pixels on my 4.6 inch 1280x768 display.

    Doubt it. Sounds like a fake. The exynos now supports LTE. The note II in the US had the exynos. And I would hardly consider the snapdragon s4 pro crap. It destroys the a6 in both gpu and cpu benchmarks.

    Is that the same GPU processor you kept saying that about that didn't beat the A6 in anything but a single benchmark?

    When you zoom in and hold the phone a few inches from your face sure, but in normal usage it doesn't matter.

    Nenamark2 has been vsync limited on most modern handsets for ages now.

    Why do people still use it?

    Could you post the benchmarks you are talking about? I am curious to see them as I have a Nexus 4.

    I'm excited to see the S4. The camera and screen on the S3 were total dealbreakers for me, but overall I think the device is very nice. If they improve on those two areas I'm an easy sell.

    Posting 'possible' preproduction benchmarks on the S4? No one even knows if this is an S4 or a Note 3 or some other new phone. With Apple, it isn't hard to decipher a possible new benchmark because Apple only has one new phone. Samsung has several. Speculating on what this might be is an attempt in futility.

    Isn't this the same person that has been paid by Apple to "review" their screen tech? The same person that never criticized Apple for having a display well in excess of 226ppi? The same person that has heaped nothing but praise on all of Apple's products? I don't believe this is an unbiased viewpoint, which isn't helped by the fact that it came from BGR. Kinda smells like desperation.

    Yes.

    Although I read the article the only information I retained was "Well, I guess iDevices won't be 1080p for a while." :)

    Maybe people with 20/20 vision (or greater) will be able to tell the difference, but I can't even see pixels on my iPhone 5 or on the Galaxy S3, even if I hold the phones right up to my face (if it gets too close it becomes blurry), so doubling the pixels isn't going to do a thing for me other than drain the battery, quite substantially I would imagine.

    I'm shortsighted and have to wear glasses, which is most likely the reason, but there are a lot of people who have less than perfect vision!

    Like I've said before, 1080p in smartphones is a spec-pissing contest rather than a useful feature.

    I do have better then 20/20 at least last time my eyes were check a few years ago.

    But it depends on the quality of the video or picture. Sitting back for a television on SD I can even comprehend see pixels, switch to HD and there is a clear difference.

    Google timescape video. They clear look better on my N10 then my iPad 3 and its only a modest jump in PPI.

    I think that not only is it more obvious in a larger display such as that on a TV, but also more important. A TV's primary function is to watch things; a smartphones is not. Battery life is surely more important than a slightly sharper display.

    The Exynos chip didn't support LTE at the time the SIII was being brought to the US. However the US variants of the SIII received 2gigs of ram compared to only 1 in every other version. Compared to the S4 Pro in my Nexus 4, the performance difference is hardly noticeable.


    The Camera in the SIII is one of the best on a smartphone today. Not sure what you're getting at here.

    Yes, I am aware that the Note features Exynos with LTE which would make the S4 a surprising decision unless Samsung has an Exynos shortage too large for a global release.

    And I would love to see where the S4 Pro "Destroys" the A6. Last I checked, the A6 stomped in the S4's guts at just about everything.

    Adreno GPU's suck. They're the Intel graphics of the mobile world.

    The adreno 320 is much faster than older adreno GPUs. On the CPU side the s4 pro murders the a6.

    Backpedaling? Looks like it.

    What happened with this Apple paying them thing? Google yields no results of interest.


    I wouldn't count on it. He has said that the Adreno 320 is faster a million times even though it only performs better in a single benchmark, being handily destroyed by the A6 in all the others.

    Dont believe anything till we are closer to release of the GS4. It will be fast, that i am sure of but dont really care what the benchmarks are. I care more about the overall size of the device and if it is smooth and fast and has good battery life.

    Doesnt have to be the fastest phone going, just fast enough for me.
