I went to the ATT store today and exchanged my a week old HTC One for a GS4, reason is simply that I couldn't get enough detail out of my One's 4MP camera. since most of my pictures need to be shown on a 1440p display and magnified a lot the 4MP just doesn't cut it.

BTW, which screen mode do you run on?

I have brightness maxed and adapt display.

Analysts say that Samsung may sell 80 million Galaxy S4 devices this year which is up from the initial 70 million estimate.

Analyst: Samsung to sell 80 million Galaxy S4 in 2013

Larger than expected demand and the fact that Samsung used mostly Qualcomm's Snapdragon 600 CPU's may be a reason why Samsung is able to manufacture the Galaxy S4 smartphones at a higher volume than the previous Galaxy S3 and Galaxy S2.

This is good news for US company Qualcomm as Samsung is buying many more Snapdragon 600 CPU's than expected.

Seems like the Exynos SOC business are going down hill these days, even the more recent Galaxy Note III rumors points to Snapdragon 800 SOCs over Exynos Octa variants(with 2.0Ghz A15s), qualcomm's embedded LTE solution is a big factor in the SOC market.

Looks like Big-Little implementations weren't be successful until next year when we get A57/A53 cores(replacing A15/A7) on 20nm process.

Exynos is Samsung's processor.

The Exynos variants of the Galaxy series are limited to Korea.

Galaxy Note 2 is sold worldwide with a Exynos 4412 SOC(the same SOC as international GS3 whcih sold a lot outside of Korea as well, 1.6Ghz instead of 1.4Ghz on the GN2).

Samsung had mountains of issues(performance/watt being so/so & volumes lacking, LTE certification came too late to sell in the US at launch day etc) with the Octacore Exynos 5410 SOC thus most GS4 variant runs Snapdragon 600, not because some arbitrary limitation to only sell Exynos variants in Korea(as Exynos GS4 are sold in China as well).

Yes sorry I meant that the Galaxy S4 Exynos version is limited to Korea.

The Exynos variants have much better CPU's except Samsung has had some trouble with LTE certification.

The Exynos variants are capable of 4G LTE but mainly in Korea because of licencing and certification. I think I've heard reports of the Exynos variants working in some other countries too.

That's not true either, Exynos versions are being sold in China as well and it is worse than Snapdragon in battery test and Performance wise both are about the same except small difference in a few benchmarks.

Some Battery result from my Battery life test today, just sharing this info to people planing on play videos on their phone during long flights.

H.264 video playback(from my micro sd card) with MX Playerpro (w/Hardware acceleration), Max Brightness(Dynamic Mode), using built in speaker(volume 8/15), no Airplane mode or Power saver:

You didn't even look through the GSMarena benchmarks I linked did you? It did show Exynos Octa having an edge in Quadrant and Antutu, but all other benchmarks scores are all about the same which is my point. Considering the Battery life difference the benchmark score difference are insignificant, it is clear that Snapdragon 600 is the superior SOC in performance/battery life.

hey guys, just got an S4 myself (upgraded from an S2). Encountering a problem though - logged into my gmail accounts, and when it syncs, it only syncs the EARLIEST 25 messages. As in, stuff from 2011 in my case.

Since i like storing mail and whatnot, my gmail accounts each have 3400 ish mails, I don't wanna be sitting here clicking every time. Is there something I can do to tweak this in the settings somehow?
edit: nevermind. Bit more exploring found it biggrin.gif
