SGS3: Dual-core S4 w/2GB RAM vs Quad-core Exynos w/1GB RAM?

Posted Jun 04, 2012 at 8:48 am in Threads > Smartphones & Tablets

With the SGS3 now starting to have official information shared, it seems that we are now looking at two major versions of the device:

(1) One with a quad-core 1.4GHz Samsung Exynos processor with 1GB RAM supporting only GSM carriers (i.e. the “International one”)
(2) One with a dual-core 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor with 2GB RAM supporting T-Mobile’s 42mbps HSPA+, LTE, and CDMA (as appropriate).

For some of us, we really don’t have much of an option – our carrier, location, or our need for LTE makes the decision pretty easy. For example, if you’re on Verizon or absolutely NEED to have LTE, then you want the dual-core S4 version. However, there are some of us who actually have a choice of one versus the other.

So my question is this: If you have, or hypothetically, if you had, a choice of either phone at roughly the same price, which would you prefer?
