The S5 and G3 here are not the local versions running on 801s. Exclusive yan oareho sa South Korean market. There’s even a QHD S5 running on an 805. Di na bago yang ganyan. The old WVGA S2 has LTE-enabled variants sa Korea. Ma S2 na HD pa nga yung screen.

Well, we can always sidestep the exynos with the Korean versions from our friends from Androple and CPFindersguide of TipidCP, hopefully they have stocks of the SD801s versions of your favorite Samsung Phones.

A * is an asterisk, not an apostrophe.

By the way, is the Note 4 offered here really the Snapdragon 805 one? I thought PH would be getting Exynos.
