And by this i mean, great phones getting a downgrade when comming to the US.
(side note- speed is a byproduct for most of us i think, the battery life is the biggest + for quad cores etc, speed i pretty low on the "why phone XYZ will rock".
Bah, ive stuck to metro with some terribad phone for awhile now, because my droid broke and there just hasnt been ANYTHING since that seemed worthy. Seems like everytime theres some great sounding phone, when it finally hits a US carrier, its either on ATT (which i will NEVER be on again, terrible ass network here in Jacksonville) AND nerfed, or just nerfed.
Quadcore != dualcore
if benchmarks weren't there to tell you, i would pretty much guarantee you couldn't tell the difference between the quad a9's and dual s4
