    Ive read in quite a few places this does have the snap801
    Maybe the specs aren't as bad as it seems. Besides the 2g ram

    If they optimized the experience like motorola did then spec is where it needs to be. Remember Kit Kat is already a lighter software than JB. I think we are seeing the spec ware curve here as now we are needing to see companies take advantage of what they have which is where the features come in at.

    Well if rumors are true that Motorola will be making it I am definitely on board. I like the s5 but not really a fan of Knox. Knox is really good for people needing a secure business phone but not so much for those who like to tinker.

    @combatmedic870 was correct. The original source where we got the Snapdragon 800 processor for the Galaxy S5 was incorrect. I was able to corroborate from three different other sites that the processor in the SGS5 is the Snapdragon 801. This means its CPU and GPU are on par with the Sony Xperia Z2, but it's RAM is still lower at 2GB instead of 3GB. Of course, the SGS5 actually has a better water and dust resistance than the Sony, so that's something worth considering as well.

    Overall it seems the two devices are about on par with one another. Of course, the popularity of the Samsung products is off the charts whereas Sony mobile devices are not nearly as successful.

    Only 2gigs of ram is kind of shocking to me...I think less future proof (which may be the point) than a 2k display or "suped-up" processor. Maybe the processor is needed for camcorder and better photos, though.

    Oh so close with the IR blaster, at least the thought process. Sure, for some I can see the use - it's cutting-edge 1998 technology!

    I'm reading that too. 801 is a little better than 800 but real next thing from QUALCOMM is 805. Interestingly Wiki now says that 805 will go into S5 as well. If this is true, I think S5 prime version exists and it's still in the work.

    If the recent rumor that "current units" are shipping with 1080p and "future units" are shipping with 2K are true, I'm totally, utterly befuddled. WHO IN THE WORLD would buy the S5 now only to learn in a few months that the screen had been significantly updated (even at a higher price-point)? I hate painting myself in a corner, but I hope the 2K doesn't happen until the S6. Seriously, I don't want to be anywhere NEAR the forum when an updated S5 with a 2K screen hits the street -- there will be an Armageddon full of unhappy customers.

    I believe we may be looking at the backside of the spec war bell curve. Just like what we saw in the PC industry, the MhZ wars ticked up to oblivion until the multi core chips became common and further when better optimization of mutil threading came about. Now that there is nearly no distance between CPU and RAM with SOC solutions, the spec war has moved on to the software.

    I am fairly certain we are looking at the same transition, probably for the next couple of years we are going to be seeing features, battery and UI evolve where as specs will stay mostly the same.

    I'm waiting to see what the Note 4 is bringing to the party.

    It's likely a south Korean release only. Like the snap800 lte a release.

    I'm shocked they aren't doing 3gb ram. But then again, the average user really only needs that much ram for heavy gaming, right? Someone please correct me if I'm wrong.
    I read an article on The Verge I believe, the said the fingerprint scanner doesn't work like it should.
    I also am not sure how to feel about a "multitasking button" instead of a menu button

    Word, thanks for pointing out the multitasking / window button... kinda lame. Makes me all the more satisfied I got myself a Note 3 and didn't decide to wait for this. I wonder when Note 3 / GS4 will get new Touchwiz w/ apps.
