AT&T uses the exynos processor while T mobiles uses the inferior Qualcomm chip.

Did not know this...........what crap!!!

I would like to know why it's inferior though. I mean, Qualcomm is the innovator from back in the day. One would think they have stayed current. No???

Let me rephrase that...There not inferior in every way, there chips are just slower. There SOCs right now are the only ones that support LTE. Thats why the american version uses the Krait while everyone else gets Tegra 3. The krait is still really fast though.

The exynos was just the fastest chip for 2011 in multiple benchmarks.

So Qualcomm is still up there, but for whatever reason the exynos chip didnt like TMOBs HSPA+ network.
