What does this mean in reality? Does one outperform the other in real world applications beyond bench marks?
I remember some grumbling about this with the Note 2 but never saw anything following its release.

So Note 3 in the US is going from the Exynos processor to Qualcomm? Note 2 in the US has the Exynos. Bummer.
I think we are at a point where it really doesn't matter. All reports seem to point to the 800 being a battery efficient beast.
