I got the info from one of the Premium members on the site. I didn't realize that to be a premium member you just have to pay. I thought you had to earn it like for Moderators and such. At first I didn't believe that, but I thought he was high up, so I trusted his source. But thanks for clearing that up for me!!!

Furthermore, you make it sound like that was a bad thing.
The faster dual cores in the S4 were functionally equivalent to the slower Samsung quad core, it saved power without requiring separate modem chips, and it added reliability by reducing the part count.
There was nothing bad about it and Verizon had zero to do with that.
Please stop reading whatever blog you've been reading, for your sake.
