I received a couple of the Qualcomm variants of this phone last week. Although I am impressed with the RFID and IR remote capabilities and other features (oh yeah, and the phone), my main issue is the locked bootloader that hinders flashing of standard Android on the device for those who don't care for the Samsung flavor. This is the main downside to me for getting a non-nexus Android phone regardless of features.

In some country, they have used Qualcomm Quadcore processor rather than Exynos octa. No such information on tear down.

Agree :-) Sarcastic but to certain degree, very true.

Hard to keep adding features when there's no one else to copy from.

Allan : looks like you are the first with teardown of the S4. How about the size and speed of the new LPDDR 3 type of DRAM you found in it. How many dies for the DRAM ? How are they packaging all his ? PoP ? How much gap beteen the 2 packages stacked one over the other ?

Mostly an incremental upgrade from S3. The one being released in my place comes with Qualcomm processor instead of the Exynos octa, which seemingly is a better choice w.r.t power consumption
