I think it incredible what there pushing in CES I was just expecting an improvement performance and graphics shock to me when I read about Samsung Octa 8 processor exynos 5250.
Which I think it 75% better performance then the previous exynos chip with it being more energy saving.
The 8 cores is divided in half: four main cores are based on the A15 architecture, the other four cores are based on A7 architecture
This will have ARM big.LITTLE technology this is what make it power efficient and the four cores based on the A7 architecture.

It would be good to hear about an amazing battery that can last for over a week and doesn't matter what you do with it such as playing game, internet etc.
Companies need to focus more on the battery side then go crazy with CPU, GPU etc later on.The craziest member on WPCentral!

Well, even computers havnt really properly jumped into 8 cores yet. They are available, but a very few things can properly utilize it for it's full strength. Intel's quad-cores are still one of the strongest CPUs out there for your average customer :D

So put the current Lumia 920 on a octal core chipset. Will it be noticeably better? Or will the 2000m batteries be killed off much faster? Or both? Will the speed gains be great enough to compensate for the battery drain?

Android needs all the cores it can get as at its core it seems to be a cheap copy of Vista...
My HTC OneXplus with 4.1.1 is no where near as fluid as my HTC 8X with WP8...
Sure, Android is very capable, but it is SLOW... jerky... not stable.
I had one reboot on my 8X since I have it, before Portico... Android, even with all the latest updates... 1 Reboot a week is the norm.

Cortex A15 are eating to much energy (they're not to efficient, worse than clover trails chips from intel) and are really warm. Thats why in idle/simple tasks they switch to a7 cores. And its not 8 core chip, but 4 core (becouse we will not use all cores at the same time only 4 a15 or 4 a7).

Even quad core processors is an exciting prospect to me. We're almost getting to the point where mobile phones stomp on dedicated game machines in terms of power, and that's just mind blowing. I love Nintendo, I really do, but there's no way in heck they can keep competing the way they are. Subsidised phones makes it easy for people to jump on a platform with a lower mental barrier for entry. I really didn't need a WP8 device, but I got one since my contract was up.
Meanwhile I'm still waiting on picking up that 3DS I've been thinking about for ages.

So basically I hope that in 2 years time when I buy my new phone, I dont have to go at least much bigger than 4,5". My hand doesnt grow in the same ratio.

I believe 5" 1080p is 2013 mainstream display for Samsung! I think LG and Sharp have 5" 1080p display's coming?
I also here there is 6" 1080p displays coming! Can you say Note3....
My brother has the Note2 5.5" 720p I think it's too big for me.....I have the ATIV S with 4.8" 720p display feel's just right but maybe could get away with the new 5" 1080p display 😎
Windows Phone 8 has no support for 1080p display yet! Maybe they will add support for 1080p in the upcoming WP8.1 sometime in March?ATIV S is LIFE
