    Even the 800 MHz dual core iPhone 4S doesn't lag. Are we throwing in all of these cores because they improve experience or just for the sake of it?

    Wow...this is just stupid. Apple's A6 is really fast and speedy...it runs great (better than other phone out there)...and it's still only a 1.3ghz dual core

    This does seem a bit over the top.
    And yet it may very well not be. Only time will tell.

    I think if Samsung is going to start tossing in chips like that, they should also look at more efficient methods for processor cooling.

    My S3 can get pretty warm.

    Battery life...not so much thought put into that, huh? Seems kinda useless, I mean the iPhone 5 is as fast as the SGSIII, yet it is not as good. Good luck Samsung...seems a little over the top tho...
