JK Shin: It doesn’t matter which processor you take

Since Samsung announced the Galaxy S4 the processor is a hot item. Samsung needed to use 2 kind of processors because of the huge amount of Galaxy S4 devices needed for the launch. Samsung choose for their own Exynos 5 Octa (GT-I9500) and for the Snapdragon 600 (GT-I9505). According to JK Shin president of Samsung Mobile it doesn’t matter which processor you use. Ok yes JK Shin is right, but the Exynos 5 Octa is a little bit better than the Snapdragon variant. The only good thing is people will not notice this.

“It doesn’t matter” Yes, right, you get to pay the full ammount of money for the inferior device. Nice try, but no, I’ll wait. (Besides, anyone who cares about specs will want the Octa, not the Quad.)

I’m sorry, but this time for the first time, I cannot purchase S4. I have all Samsung Galaxy S 1-3 Phones, galaxy Note 10.1 and a notebook series 9. But I want octa and the radio, now “removed” from the S4.
And sincerely, I’m not very happy of the series 9 notebook 15″ i7 with 8GB of ram. The internal SSD is slow and …however this is another story!

hmm i dont get your comment. Sure i also would have prefered Octa if it had LTE but the fact that even S600 is almost 3 times faster than S3 is really a huge bump. And all the extra features and much better screen is good enough reason for me atleast.
You do what you want of course but i dont think the difference between the two is that huge, at max we are talking about 10% which you wont notice anyway. Also S3 did not have radio in Sweden to begin with so no loss here.

Apart from benchmarks, how do you know the Exynos is better than the snapdragon? Both are blazing fast and that’s really all that matters.
