Confused which S5 to buy

10th April 2014, 05:57 AM |#1  
Guys,

Would someone please advice me for which S5 should I go for ? There will be Snapdragon 801 and Exynos version will be available in my local market from tomorrow onward. Samsung official will sell Exynos version and other open market seller will be selling also S801 alongside Exynos.

I have seen couple of reviews that Exynos did better performance over S801 version. I need some of you guys more depth advice.

Really it comes down to if you need LTE or not and which one is cheaper.
My advice is just go for the cheaper one if you don't need LTE.
But if they are priced the same or very close, Snapdragon will be the way to go because more dev support.
Yes, the exynos is faster in benchmarks, but only slightly, you won't see much difference in real world usage.

Although Exynos does have higher performance than the SD801, the difference in everyday use is negligible. Also SD801 has LTE and also better Dev support. Also, the games on the Play Store are more optimized for the Adreno 330 than the Mali GPU of the Exynos.

It is better to go for the Snapdragon version. If the Exynos version is priced much lower than the SD version, you might want to think a bit.

I guess it's the marketing idea of 8 cores are better than 4 lol.
