I smell a rat with Samsung's success. How can Samsung build better smartphones than others and so close in specifications and feel to Apple's is difficult to absorb. That too in just 3 years while others are still struggling to match up with Apple.
"6Gb of mobile flash and 64Gb of Mobile DRAM"
That would be 2GB for storage and then 8GB of DRAM.
It should be the opposite way, right?
8GB would be too much for a lightly used desktop at home. No mention to a mobile phone.
Samsung selected the quad-core Exynos 4212 (which was at one point named the Exynos 4412 and then finally renamed the Exynos Quad). According to Samsung, this processor was manufactured at the 32-nm node, similar to that of the latest version of the Apple A5 processor found in the 3rd generation Apple TV or 2nd generation iPad 2. This new Exynos processor uses power gating across all four cores, which apparently reduces power consumption when not in use.
May I suggest removing the battery in future BEFORE applying the hot air gun - some of those babies do not like getting hot and we would not want anyone getting hurt in the search for truth ;)
Surely the "64Gb of mobile DRAM" must be a misprint? Even if that is only 8Gbytes that is a serious amount of ram and would make it a bit pointless strapping 1GB to the top of the processor, surely?
