Pocket-Lint: Samsung has sensationally backtracked over what processor will be in the UK version of the recently announced Samsung Galaxy S4 smartphone.
Fuck off samsung...my iphone 4 battery life slaughters what was on s3 even if it has a smaller battery. Snapdragons is nasty in battery consumption. It eats battery like a fat blob. The battery life is the single biggest issue i have with smart phones. I will stick with my iPhone 4 until an ergonomically decent phone comes out and sorts the battery life.
I assume you live in the UK and are upset. hmm well now you feel our pain in the usa over last years s3 having a dual core here and yall having a quad core. oh and the 2600 mah battery in the s4 will last you longer than any iphone, probably about 2 days medium to heavy use, and the note 2s battery i believe a 3100mah battery will last you 2-3 days heavy use.
I rather have dual core...i used to own S3 quad core UK version and the battery life was nasty. It offered nothing exceptional. Infact battery life was better for US version. I brought third party higher battery and that didnt make much of a difference. S3 wouldnt last 4hrs with medium use. It wouldnt noway near last half a day with medium use. S3 has 2100mAh battery while my iPhone4 has like 1200mAh or so and it still beats S3 in battery life. The iphone 5 has a dual core it still beat S3 in web browsing, apps and most importantly in my opinion in modern smart phones..Battery Life. Improved Battery life is what i most wanted. Samsung have done an Apple..they failed to innovate. Shocking gimmicky features and still nasty looking design. I will stay well clear.
I guess I'm not getting an S4 then. I may go for an Xperia Z or just a Nexus 4 since it gives so much for the price.
