    Of course that is completely wrong.
    Actually it isn't.

    Everything iphone does has been done already.

    It is an Octacore, it DOES have 8 cores. They just don't run all at once, but there are 8 cores.


    8= octa

    No. An octacore processor is like the ones Intel makes that run all 8 cores. The exynos is not an octacore. The best way to describe it is as a 4x2 or a dual quad core.

    The whole point is they are selling old technology at new prices.

    Everything they are calling new is old

    Octacore simply means it has 8 cores, period.

    Samsung's processor DOES have 8 cores, 4 slow and 4 fast and they switch between the 2,but it's still an octacore

    You are of course aware that Foxconn makes phones and devices for many companies and PC manufacturers in the exact same factories.....
    Here are just a few of them.
    Acer Inc.
    Amazon.com
    Apple Inc.
    Cisco
    Dell
    Google
    Hewlett-Packard
    Microsoft
    Motorola Mobility
    Nintendo
    Nokia
    Sony
    Toshiba
    Vizio
    You do realize that not all Foxconn factories are in China or Taiwan, right? For example, Google Glass is made by Foxconn, but in the US, where there are labor laws.

    Read the reviews of the HTC One and Galaxy S 4 on Anandtech where they show the iPhone 5 still beats both in many hardware benchmarks.
    So you're that guy who still values benchmarks.

    All it really does is cause throttling, heat issues, and poor battery performance.
    This isn't still 2010.

    Not semantics at all. Octacore actually means something, and it doesn't apply to the exynos.

    Yeah no. Its two quad cores. They are two separate processor groups, each based on completely different designs.

    Apples ideas are not old. Do Not Disturb mode was added to the iPhone months before the blocking mode on Samsung. S voice is also a clone of Siri(and worse at that)

    Apple did not make Siri. They acquired it.

    There were apps that performed that function on Android long before apple had it. It just worked better and! Customizable on Android

    S voice DOES suck, i disabled it. No need for it, especially with Google Now

    Yeah, I love google Now. It's much better then siri for information but Siri IMHO is better as a voice assistant. It allows you to open apps instantly(Now takes 20 seconds)music plays faster and for me Siri is just as accurate as Now.

    I agree with you on everything except being just as accurate.

    I HATE trying to talk to siri because it never hears what I'm saying the first time, on the other hand I rarely ever had to repeat myself with Google Now.

    I love how you can throw a random number at it and ask for the square root and it gets it almost instantly

    Actually I kinda agree it isn't as accurate as google now but Siri is a better voice assistant over now, Now is awesome for info but not for performing phone functoins.

    I think it's just as good at doing it but that lag from the instruction to actually doing it, siri has it beat.

    I think that lag is intentional to make sure it heard the right command.

    That is an educated guess as there is no possible way they could know just what type of bulk discount Samsung gets for ordering tens of millions of parts. My guess is the actual cost is at least $50 less.

    Also the iPhone 5 is half a year old so the tech in it is older on general than what is on the S4.
