It Goes To 9
Samsung's new phones implement LTE Category 9, which has a maximum download speed of ~450 Mbit/s. That's an improvement from the previous generation, which supported LTE Category 6 (~300 Mbit/s). Also, syncing phone data with a Mac or PC has gotten easier. Samsung's SideSync 4.0 software supports automatic syncing, so users don't have to remember to sync.

I'm sure people won't male a line to get any of these phones.
But the way, I'm amazed by the live HD streaming. Believe it or not, I still have problems streaming HD over a private network with an i7.

Marginal differences.
At best these are marginal differences. And when the specs get so high, marginal differences don't matter. Because most users are underutilizing their devices anyway.
