Comment Likely still slower than the Exynos 8890 (Score 1) 30

The Galaxy S7 comes in two major flavors - the US version that sports the Snapdragon 820 and the international version that uses Samsung's Exynos 8890. In head-to-head tests the Snapdragon is noticeably slower with hours less of battery life (http://www.gsmarena.com/samsung_galaxy_s7_exynos_8890_vs_snapdragon_820_speed_test-news-17429.php). Apparently Samsung was required to use the Snapdragon in the US market for its CDMA support.

The harsh realities of how poor feed themselves might not make for touchy, feel-good sentiments but it makes for full bellies.

Why woulkd you never again consider an SD card when you already acknowledged that Android deals with the issue in a much saner way today (http://source.android.com/devices/storage/adoptable.html)? That's like saying you'll never drive a car again because people died 65 years ago before the invention of the seatbelts.
