There's a lot of clueless haters on here.
When someone goes out and spends $700 on a flipping phone you bet they're gonna read up on it or ask sme questions. And when you're locked into a 2 year contract you bet you're gonna get the best and newest tech.
Speed doesn't matter as most people don't read benchmark results but everyone understands 8 cores is twice as many as quad core and that's a good thing and this would give Samsung a huge edge which is why Samsung spent the extra money for this CPU.
This is exactly like screen size or resolution or camera mega pixels. Most people know its not so much the pixels that count but they always go for the phone with the most pixels. And here again Samsung will have a hue advantage even if real life demos show the iPhone 5 is better.
And this is exactly why I've been saying for 2 months now that Apple will release the iPhone 5S most likely next month and this is why supplier orders are down. And if I'm right we're gonna spike $100 in a week cause it would mean 6 more months of really high sales and by October the iPhone 6 will come out right in time for Christmas so apple will blow past $800 in huge demand for new iPhones.
If apple fails to do this then Samsung will kill them in the next 6 months with the S4. Bank on it. I hope that wimp Cook finally gets it - consumers will no longer buy any #$%$ apple puts out.
Sentiment: Strong Buy
