This is what the HTC X one and the Evo 4g LTE should have been in the first place. Fail on sprint and AT&T and especially AT&T for announcing so soon.

fail for announcing so soon? why? i think this is going to be a great phone. fastest phone out there that i know of anyways. 1.7 quad with LTE. could be the makings of a very nice phone....

or could be the next thunderbolt. I don't really need four cores powering a device I can hold in my hand. This seems like overkill. A dual-core 1.5Ghz S4 is fast enough I would think.

Do i really need 4 cores? eh.. maybe not but that extra power is always nice (bragging right aside) for running multiple apps at once. I normally have a few things running on my phone and when im streaming video or game to my tv it still have a faster speed at 1.7 thats always nice. This speed is coming mighty close to the older i7 pc computer processor that ran at 2.2 quad core..
(am i going to end up ditching my computer tower for a high end phone in 10 years?)..

Even with the same core frequency, I'm sure the Core i7 processor would be faster at that same speed, I mean, it has access to a huge power supply (compared to a phone), and I would at least hope it would have better / faster architecture than a phone's processor.

Oh yes. It can preform faster with the hyper-threading and a different architecture. there's lots more then just speed but i'm just saying looking at how fast everything's going with the phone biz. a few years down the road we should have some exciting phone options...

Phone processors aren't as powerful as say an Intel i5 and i7.

Maybe Pentium 4 processors though Razz, but anything after that, no way lol.

lol i know.... I have an i5 3570k clocked at 4.1ghz now and phones arent even close. but for the average user who just needs emails, facebook, and a streaming video or something, a phone that wirelessly connects to a screen and keyboard/mouse a newer high end phone might be able to fill that need pretty easily. (i think the idea behind the atrix and driod laptop dock http://www.amazon.com/AT-Laptop-Dock-Motorola -ATRIX/dp/B004M17D62 ).

in most every benchmark, the dual core S4 is superior. The Tegra3 is not a very good quad core for raw computing powers compared to the competition.

eh. i mean sure if your going for overall just raw speed sure one core is going to beat two. because it doesnt have to share anything and the processes are simpler. but if you have anything else running and if you running apps that are designed to be able to use more cores effectively then theres no doubt that the tegra 3 with quad cores is going to out perform easily.

The iPhone 5 should have been what the original iPhone was in the first place. Shame on Apple....

Progress is progress, if we are waited and waited till everything was bug free and perfect we still be stuck in the stone age. Most companies try to improve their product with each iteration so you shouldn't be mad that this isn't what the first product was, it's an improvement over the first.
