  1. Wow, a octa core processor! This phone truly makes the Iphone 5 poo, although the Note 2 already did that! The Galaxy s4 smokes the Iphone 5 in every spec! Well Iphone 5 users, enjoy your dual core 1000ghz 4 inch piece of s***! Good work Samsung, the 12 billion a year you spend on innovation is paying off, while Apple pays only 3 billion a year for innovation, we sure know who is making the phones people want! Apple tells the customer what they want, while Samsung listens to what people really wants and delivers.
