This review is from: Samsung Galaxy S4 I9500 (Unlocked) 16GB Black Mist 3G 5" Super AMOLED I9500
Pros: Very good phone. polished and fast. Better than iphone 5. bought it for my wife. She loves it.
Cons: Expensive. Google Nexus is probably a better deal. But this one looks better and is more polished. Battery time is a little disappointing.
Other Thoughts: Bought it for 745 CAD $. Its price has since gone up.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Nearly all benchmarks have shown this CPU performs badly. I bought one to see how bad it is. It is a pleasant surprise. It does much better than the benchmarks suggested. At least it is an upgrade for me from Phenom II x4. It is also faster than an i3 I have at stock. Now I've overclocked it to 4.3ghz and it flies.
Among all the bulldozers, this one gives you the best value. AMD, unlike intel, dont strip features off their lower end models. So you've got the same set of features (aes, avx, ...) as 8150. For me, I can use aes (hardware encryption) right away since I encrypted all my hard drives by truecrypt/dm-crypt (yes, I'm paranoid :-).
Cons: Newegg prices it a little higher than it should be. I bought it from a local store for 5 dollars less and minus S & H. Also see below.
Other Thoughts: Retailers seem to have difficulty determining how much to sell it for. Some places price it as high as 150. I think 120 is the fair price. I believe it is the price after Christmas. Once piledrivers or Ivy bridges hit the market, this one can be had for < 100. But I'm not going to wait that long.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Great HTPC. Very capable CPU. Much faster than an atom making it a better choice for HTPC than an atom Nvidia combo. Works with both XP and linux.
Cons: Getting hot quickly after a while.
Other Thoughts: Athlon Neo has become obsolete with zacate coming up. Cannot wait for new models coming out with these new babies.READ FULL REVIEW
