Galaxy S4 Exynos Benchmark

Samsung justifies using two different processors on its Galaxy S 4:  one that has the Exynos Octa 5processor, which is basically two sets of quad processors that clock in at 1.6 GHz, care of Samsung andanother that has the Snapdragon 600, a quad processor that clocks in at 1.9GHz

The reason for this, according to one of its CEOs, is to meet the expected demand for the smartphone. However, it does not sit well with all of the Galaxy S 4 customers since a few weeks/months back, benchmark results of each of the variants showed that the Exynos 5 Octa does perform better, which naturally seems to be the "better buy".

Initially, people thought that the Snapdragon version will be provided to countries with excellent LTE coverage and they were generally OK with it because the move seemed justified, but not until Samsung releases an Exynos version that also supports LTE.

The main difference between the two variants is that the Snapdragon version uses the same quad core for all kinds of tasks, whereas the Exynos 5 Octa version uses a different set of cores for lighter tasks and another set of cores for graphic-intensive tasks like gaming. 

However, Samsung CEO JK Shin downplays any issue that will arise by saying that any differences will not be noticeable because the two variants will be almost identical in performance.
