In general usage, they are both in the same ballpark. For typical tasks the A7s in the G900H consume less power than the Krait, but really intensive tasks like heavy games or benchmarks might consume more battery due to what I mentioned above regarding the A15 cores.

Audio chipset: G900H has a Wolfson chip, which many consider superior to Qualcomms.

tnx
and as i saw on the later pages, qualcomm has better dev support right? then can't we flash a rom on both phones? so about game support which one comes in handy?
which one gets hotter? is there any head to toe comparison out there? someone how has both phones

QCom has much more dev support, Exynos has none for this device.
Roms aren't inter-flashable (ask Shohat... )

I had a Nexus 5 and have an S5 Exynos.

The performance of both GPUs is comparable but in the most modern games (ES 3.0) Adreno is definitely faster and is generally more powerful.
OCed Mali kinda makes the gap very small but still there's a small gap in performance. It is not noticeable to me in gaming, only in benchmarks.

All in all, the decision is simple: do you need support for your device (ROMs, Kernels)? if yes, then Snapdragon is a no brainer.

Temps can't really say.

If I had something I didn't get with xposed I'd try to build one for us... I'll try if I ever get spare time this year... .

I do have a custom kernel with Wolfson control and some little battery improvements on the pipeline.

I have been very busy and thus unable to work on it. But it's right now running as my daily driver.

If you are interested to make your Wolfson controls wider available for applications, then let me know, and I can integrate them with my music player. I need native support for 24 bits and 88.2 and 176.4 frequencies for smoother DSD playback. I bet the chip can support DSD natively.

If you like any custom rom, run away for exynos version.

Samsung SM-G900T for T-Mobile

3G Network HSDPA 850 / 900 / 1900 / 2100 - SM-G900F
HSDPA 850 / 900 / 1700 / 1900 / 2100 - SM-G900M
HSDPA 850 / 1900 / 2100 - SM-G900A

4G Network LTE 800 / 850 / 900 / 1800 / 1900 / 2100 / 2600 - SM-G900F
LTE 700 / 850 / 1700 / 1900 / 2100 / 2600 - SM-G900M
LTE 700 / 850 / 1700 / 1800 / 1900 / 2100 / 2600 - SM-G900A
LTE 700/850/900/1700/1800/1900/2100/2600 - SM-G900T
all of those variatn have same hardware, only difference is band support based on the model/region: Qualcomm MSM8974AC Snapdragon 801

the Samsung Galaxy S5 SM-G900H on the ohter hand doesn't have 4g support
2G Network GSM 850 / 900 / 1800 / 1900
3G Network HSDPA 850 / 900 / 1900 / 2100

and have the Exynos 5 Octa 5422 which devs chose not to make custom roms for as the snapdragon variants
hope that would be helpful.

I'd prefer the 900F seeing as that seems to be the most supported/compatible model when it comes to root methods/recoveries/roms/kernels.

well i guess nobody here give u full info,
so i would (cuz i know and own one)

there two models
LTE 4G (F): QuadCore - 2GB ram, support High Speed Data
3G/HSPA+ (H) aka international Model, Octacore -2GB Ram Support High Speed Data that limited to 3G/HSPA+ levels

i own The 3G international model i did had option to buy the 4G LTE one, but i seen 8CORE OR 4CORE,,, i got the 8 AKA Octacore
is alot supriror then the LTE one it can run 4 times faster and times heavyer apps then outer model

only in super heavy games it depend on ure rom . for sample indian rom of 3g model make games llbit slow loading in pixel NOT ACTUALLY THE GAME , i use my own 4.4.2 rom that my oprator edited.
and the games run blitzing fast.

so buy what u find better .

If you want to flash new ROMs, try different mods and generally like to mess with your device, get the SM-G900F. If you just wanna use your phone as it is, get the H version. Both are international ones btw, just with different hardware

Info 2 900F is better because of Snapdragon and Adreno
All the facts and full comparison is in the video in below link:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WbuTESkEViY

Well most of normal people may think that Octa core is better but it's Exynos which is terrible for android as you can see the lags and failure in many tasks and benchmarks in the video which compares 900F (Snapdragon) vs. 900H (Exynos), and also the battery life of octa-core is awful, because of running all cores at the same time and so it spends more energy, also I've notice that the free ram of 900F (Snapdragon) is more,
well you can watch the full video that I sent it really helped me so may helps you as well...
SAMSUNG only play with words to deceive people, (Exynos octa-core better and more powerful than Snapdragon?!!! dream it pal!!! Snapdragon is #1)
