I'm a bit confused, if all 8 cores are never running together, so at max you get one core at 1.6 ghz on the octacore phone, and the normal uk version is just quad core at 1.9ghz, how does the octa core keep beating the uk 1.9ghz version?

I'm not sure i understand it as only 4 cores can only run at a time on the octacore, that means the 1.9ghz version with its 4 cores will always be at least 300mhz faster than the 1.6 ghz octacore.

this means that the international version i9505 should actually run faster, but benchmarks ive seen show the other runs faster, does anyone know why?
