    Apparently rumours say that the S4 with the Octa Core will not be heading to the UK because of the lack of LTE and now that the UK is nearly fully LTE the snapdragon 600 (that is LTE compatible) will be heading for the UK.

    But maybe the octa will head for the UK later in the year when they fix their lte problems with the exynos chip, only time will tell.

    Does this mean the Snapdragon will be in the UK carrier-locked S4 only?

    In other words, will I still be able to buy the international unlocked Exynos-wielding S4 here (say, from Amazon UK)?
    And if so, is the UK release date the same for both the carrier-locked and the international models?

    I hear it doesn't make much difference either way in performance, but I want the better efficiency from the Exynos.

    I would have thought so, but I do agree I want the performance and efficiency from the s4!

    We in no way know the performance of either of these chips in the final Galaxy S 4. Nobody has any room to complain either way at this point. Do not discount the excellent Snapdragon 600.

    Okay im not a big fan of benchmarks but geek bench is quite reliable, now look at this:
    Galaxy S4: (QUAD CORE Snapdragon 600 @ 1.9ghz) gets 3100 on Geekbench

    Nexus 10: ( Dual Core @ 1.7ghz A15 cores) gets 2500 geekbench

    Now the nexus 10 has 2 less cores than the snapdragon and is clocked 200mhz lower and still it only scores 600 less than snapdragon, now 4 A15 cores will definitely he nearing 4000!
