I have owned the transformer prime tf201 for a month before returning it, and was not massively impressed by the tegra 3.

Under honeycomb it felt virtually the same as the tf101, apart from home screen navigation. The browser was horrendous and considerably worse than my galaxy s2.

On ICS the whole thing was a massive improvement, but sadly the browser (any of them) was still not as good as the ipad2, and even the galaxy s2. I suspect in most cases, the qualcomm s4 will simply feel faster (and browsing in particular im hoping).

Tegra 3 was VERY impressive for media playback though and games aswell, however, there are barely any games on the market that the adreno 205 can not handle let alone the 220/225.

Adreno 220 in s3 was bottlenecked, 225 in s4 should be a lot better and close to tegra 3 gpu.

i have a Desire HD adreno205 and its starting to fall behind, the 3d games that do work are not working at their best

android default browser is always nonsense even for snapdragon device and opera is a tons better (or other alternative) it might be an asus problem

hard to believe the quad fails in a real multi tasking job like web browsing

media playback and games? YES PLEASE

you returned the T Prime and its the most well praised android tablet out there, with most media concluding its a titan a match to the iPad3, updates are making it better, in fact a massive update has just been released

your issues with the T Prime sound only software problems

not to mention the T Prime shipped with early T30 silicon which had troubles achieving its own thermal goals, we are getting a revised AP33 aimed at 1.5/1.6ghz stable in a mobile phone

you mean to tell me opera was performing worse in the Prime opposed to the SGS2? it runs perfectly on my DHD

Look i wanted to believe the s4 mopes t3 myself mate since i'm angry at the T3 GPU, but i have checked every review, every bench and every technical article out there and simply it did not beat the T3 it simply almost matched it and impressive feat for a dual core, but doesn't cancel or out do the T3 especially not at 1280x720

finally check my posts on the topic
