This is the First Smartphone to have a Eight-Core Processor & many of them will be thinking that what actually the Eight-Core Processor Mean. The Eight-Core Processor will actually have two types of cores on it. The Phone will use Four Core at a time.

"Four cores are powered by ARM's A15 architecture. These are high-performance cores and run at 1.6GHz. The remaining four cores use A7 architecture. These are cores with extremely good power efficiency and run at 1.2GHz. Galaxy S4 will use A7 cores while handling light work. For example, if you are making a call, the phone is likely to be powered by A7 cores. But if you are playing a demanding 3D game, it will switch off A7 cores and use A15 cores. At no point of time, the phone will use all eight cores simultaneously." - Credits TOI
