From what I hear, the US version will use the new S4 chips, basically A15s. The quad core international version uses A9s. Basically, in actual real world use, with no apps yet fully quad core compatible, and even if they become compatible, the dual core A15s with 2GB RAM should perform equally to the quad core A9s. Its similar to how come a 2.5Ghz dual core i5 is faster than a 2.5Ghz core2duo.

[h=3]Standout Features[/h]Smart Stay is a feature which uses the front-facing camera to detect when you are looking at the screen – the screen stays on if you are looking at it, irrespective of the duration of the screen timeout. With the Direct Call feature, hold the phone to your ear and it will automatically call the contact you were looking at or texting.
It’s just a few mm wider than the S II, so it’s very easy to hold. The contoured shape and slim design make the S III stand out. Finally, with a 2100 mAh battery, the S III has more than enough juice to last you through the day.

this is what i heard about multi core support on android


According to Intel, Android’s thread scheduler just isn’t up to the task of getting the best performance out of the new quad-core (and to a lesser extent, dual-core) chips we’re seeing. Since the manufacturers of those components should be the ones capable of getting the highest performance out of them, Intel thinks the companies behind these chips should be the ones contributing the necessary improvements to the Android source tree, but “they just haven’t bothered to do it.”

Sure, some of this might just be a backhanded way for Intel to congratulate itself on its own work at improving thread performance, but we agree that someone needs to be taking a closer look at Android multi-core support. According to the company, some of the phones from other manufacturers end up performing worse when multiple cores are enabled. It doesn’t name names, but if that’s true at all, it seems like a damning assessment of Android’s current relationship with multi-core chips.

I still have my Atrix around that I can hack up everyday or every other day. It is OC'd to 1.3GHz and has 1GB of RAM. So really it is just a smaller screen. I do love the Note and the size it gives. Games and everything are much more fun on it. I get about 18 hours of battery from it with what is heavy use for me.

I just cant see spending that kinda money for a Quad Core phone. It isnt going to operate all that much better. Android is not made for Quad Core at this time. There is no evidence that Jelly Bean is going to support it either. So really your just wasting 2 cores.
I have a use for 4 cores. My phone gets used for more than Android.
