I agree with the first comment..... What a joke of a review. Must be a noob ....
Completly. B.s review and noob doing the review.
this is a very deceptive post. the exynos at 1.6ghz is slower than the s4pro at 1.5 ghz. its like comparing a pentium 4 processor to a core i7. the other thing that is miss leading is the hspa+ 168 mbps is not as good as the lte at 80 mbps. lte has a better backhaul system and can handle more people at 1 time with out slowing down. the 168 is theoretical and wont even reach 1/10th of that while on a loaded lte tower you will still get around 20 mbps. I hate comparisons and reviews like this because they mean absolutely nothing. and filled with lies about what is "faster"
