    Well without LTE I'm not interested. Don't like the idea of fragmenting S4's further either.

    Sammy has 26 models out, between smartphones and tablets. How many more do they need?
    Fragmentation is right. Worse, you buy Sammy stuff now and before you know it it's out of fashion. So, anything you buy now is quickly outdated. The resale value which already sucks as is, takes another dump. Geez...

    Factors: S4 with quad-core and for some (they're around here already) with the octa-core, so already nobody wants the first one. It's like wanting a V8 for a straight 4. Then you have the robust S4, good for some rough handling. Soon after, let's go Vanilla ( nothing wrong with that) , but will it be V8 or a straight four? Mmmmm... the plot thickens. Then attach a mega camera to it and, and now a spruced antenna for faster network speeds. This is like beefing up the motor. But will it be a super charged V8 or a turbo straight four? What do you want? The best obviously.
    Man, this is getting awkward.
    After all this, is anybody's recently acquired S4 outdated?
    You tell me.

    Yeah but the octa core is only found in the European market though, right Del?. I'm sure mine will be outdated by my next upgrade, if not soon. Its crazy.

    The Octa-core is available quite easily at any retailer now. The carriers haven´t got them. Yet.
    Once this happened the "standard" S4 price dropped 100 bucks from their original selling price. There are plenty available, both new and at 100 bucks cheaper (about 450) 2nd hand, but in mint condition. Some of them still with all the wrappings, virtually unused.
    Moral of the story: If I buy one S4 Quad-core I'll pay at best about 500 bucks new. Trouble is, it´s worth about 300 bucks if I need to trade it in for some reason. That´s why I say that these shannanigans by Samsung is a real pain in the **s.
    The octa-core is the hot number now. For how long?
    And I'm sure it won´t be long before it gets over to the US.

    With the octo-core, yes. It's faster. Web, pictures, videos, games. You name it.

    Great, now I can open my phone book 0.00000059 seconds faster which is twice as fast...sweet! and open my messages in 0.0000000007601 seconds faster which is 4 times the speed...even sweeter, and open the back cover of my phone to do a could reboot in 6 seconds which is...no improvement

    seriously...they should focus on what counts like boot up time and download/upload speeds and battery usage as not many phones use 4 AAA cell batteries... in the standard consumer market, the only processors that need upgrades are those on gaming computers/consoles that can actually effectively use the extra power and speed with a worthwhile visible difference...otherwise...impractical!
