I understand that it may be due to radio issues however, if that is the case dont try to sell the phone for a similar price as its european brother.
    I wondered the same thing about why bothering to sell it but then it would probably take years before the phone gets to us as an LTE Quadcore. Just got to wait it out.

    Do we really need quad core chips? It's not like we are running Modern Warfare 3 on our phones. It just seems like specs like quad core are way over the hump on the bell curve and well into the diminishing returns category.

    Having a quad core is like saying how awesome your computer is because it can render something at 100+ fps when your eyes only process at less than 30 fps.

    Let's not forget that one of the main reasons for this is the better / more efficient management of the LTE radio, which should, in turn, make battery life better, connectivity better, 4g/3g handoff better, etc. If I understand it correctly, it'll all be handled on the same chip now, as opposed to separately to date.

    As stated already, having this chip should actually be a benefit, not a hindrance.

    Like it was already mentioned...lte is the reason.

    Its the reason why the exynos dual core chip isn't on too many or any lte phones.

    That and if I read correctly, the fastest data speeds on the exynos is 21mbps. Which to me doesn't make sense, that's about what I max out at on my RAZR in good reception areas.

    I have never once complained about it.

    That was for HSPA+. When T-Mobile launched their 41 or 42mbps stuff they needed the Snapdragon to support it.

    These back & forth rumors are getting pretty old... I'm just gonna wait for 100% confirmed information I guess.

    ??? The S4 processor is no joke...it has some serious power. If dont want to make a mistake buying outdated tech....then i wouldnt choose the razr maxx....
    The S4 has a 28nm die size compared to the 45nm die size all of the current phone are currently running (meaning better power savings), also the S4 has an integrated 4G chip further more decreasing battery usage.

    Wasn't quad-core also supposed to have fixed things that were wrong/worse in dual-core phones for even better battery? Either way, for a two-year phone..(not that I keep my phones anywhere near that long) quad-core would have just been nice to have as it's more future proof and you're "with the times". But I'll take LTE and the S4 over 3G/HSPA+ any day. Either way, I'll definitely likely be picking this phone or the Journal this summer.
