Default snapdragon 600 vs 800

Does anyone know how much quicker the 800 is than the 600 and which is the most efficient. Do you think if the phone was used for normal office uses and not games, that there would be any advantage to having the 800?

For normal office uses I doubt you'd need the difference.

Even the old Snapdragon S4 Plus with Adreno225 GPU from the GS3 US edition is fine for office use. Today's SoCs are overpowered and software is still playing catch u to them.

Snapdragon 800 is more power efficient than 600 at lower frequencies.

Don't know much about snapdragon 400, don't want to know much about it either.

It is more efficient, but I thought that is with the newer LTE band that 800 supports. Does it also help with Verizon LTE? South Korea is one of the few places that have the newer LTE.

Nice if it is better, since the S3 and S4 are both battery sucking demons with weak signal. Pure evil.
