    8 cores? Really? The 4 in the Note 2, using the older A9 architecture, hardly get fully utilized in almost all but the most optimized apps. 8 is just bragging rights.

    I welcome the screen size change though. Don't stop this train!

    Looking forward to the 1080p screen.
    Not sure what else would make me want to upgrade.
    Been pretty happy with the Note II.

    6.3 inches just makes it too big imo... that's using a damn tablet.

    I think the size of the Note II right now should be the cap size of any phone.. anything above that is just getting ridiculous.

    I'd choose the S4 rathe rthan note 3 lol the screen way to big and the performance is the prolly going to be 80% same
    The Exynos Octa Core (Four A9 and Four A15 Cortex cores)
    They say they're using the PowerVR SGX 544MP3 (iPad 3 GPU but better but not as iPad 4 GPU (SGX 544MP4) so it will have superb performance and actually better than ipad 4 becasue the screen res is not that high

    It may have 8 cores but you gonna be only using 4 of those 8 at any given time. If I'm not mistaken, you gonna end up using the A15 for high power duties then it'll switch to A7. (as mentioned here). So don't quite get excited about it just because it'll have 8 cores doesn't mean you'll be able to use it all at once.

    That is true. It sounds like it will be more efficient though
