The hottest rumor on the web surrounding the Samsung Galaxy S4 is the processor debate - will the company opt for Exynos or will Qualcomm's Snapdragon be the driving force behind the new flagship? Do you want my honest opinion before you hear the facts and rumors? Well, I honestly don't care at the moment since I know that both of these are high quality products. However, what I am worried about is which is better compatible with the rest of the kit. One would assume that an Exynos processor would go better considering that it Samsung's own pride and joy and they can customize it as much as they like until it fits all their needs. Not to mention that the Exynos 5 Octa is a great marketing strategy so far! But this is just me, what do the rumors on the Internet say?
Well the Galaxy S4 news and rumor mill doesn't have all that much to say except for the same repetitive story which sounds a lot like this:
The Galaxy S4 was featured in unofficial benchmarks last week and the *reliable, trustworthy etc* photos showed that the Galaxy S4 will be running a Qualcomm Snapdragon processor. The chairman of Qualcomm didn't give out any details about their possible cooperation with Samsung, but he did hint us that the company's new hardware is well-optimized and will provide *XX% better battery life*.

You can see that I was being a bit sarcastic here, but the joke I played is very reasonable since every single article out there looks the same! Even blogs that have a good reputation to uphold seem to be getting lazy and just copy the same thing over and over again. I am telling you it is hard to find an original Galaxy S4 news source right now!
Anyway, let me state a few facts about why you shouldn't worry about this issue in the first place. First of all, read my opening opinion at the top of the article in case you skipped (how dare you!). Second, please note that Samsung has used Qualcomm's processor units in the past already, specially in the USA. They didn't use them on some unpopular/low-level models as you might be thinking. Far from that! They used it on some of their Galaxy S3 devices, including the Galaxy S3 4G/LTE model which is pretty cool.
The final thing to note is that Snapdragon 600 is a beast! It is powering the LG Optimums Pro and the new HTC One and I have to tell you that I am impressed by those two phones! I am sure that an improved version of that processor would fit great inside of the Galaxy S4!
So what do you guys and girls think? Leave me a comment down bellow and have a wonderful day!
