    Nope no quad-core for the GS3. The Samsung quad-core chip is no LTE capable... So all of the US LTE versions are shipping with Qualcom's dual-core S4 cpu. From what I've read around, the Qualcom chip benchmarks just as good though.

    The reason the benchmarks are about the same is there are virtually
    no android applications that utilize more than 2 cores.

    Bout the only thing i can think of would be some games
    from Nvidia's Tegra zone.

    Yep... That plus the fact that LTE will take the better part of the year or more to really start being a factor (at least on Sprint that is) makes the GS3 something to watch for me and not an upgrade at this point.

    I'm hesitant to buy this Galaxy SIII for sprint. I use my phone for GPS purposes aggressively, and Samsung phones are known infamously for bad GPS radios. I will read many reviews before I decided on this device. The HTC EVO4GLTE looks a little more enticing.

    Agreement here on the GPS of the Epic on Sprint. But I had an EVO which had fair GPS but a simply horrible boot-loop problem which disabled everything! Couldn't use the fairly good GPS because it wouldn't stop restarting itself!

    You don't like Samsung phones but you hang out in their forums. Makes sense to me. LMAO
