In the 8 year life-cycle of a console - I would say maybe after two or three years the low power mobile chips will be equivalent in performance.

I was going to buy the Samsung Note 4 in September, but I may wait a year for one of these beauties to be incorporated in to the next, next generation!

As a note 3 owner I can prove that 4k 30fps recording is already here. And Nokia obviously got a 41mp sensor working with an older generation Qualcomm chip I believe.

The "game changer" here is enabling these functions out of the box...I believe Samsung/Nokia had to do custom firmware (software, or hardware) to get the functions mentioned in this reply's first paragraph.

4k will be awesome on tablets/phones. They will require enough graphics horsepower to drive them. As a 25 year old, they need to hurry up and make 4k economical before my young eyes can't appreciate it!

64 bit should be nice, who knows ho long it will take the android ecosystem to migrate.

I agree, the Note 3 is a great bit of kit. I may still get the Note 4 as there are rumours it will be 64-BIT - but then part of me thinks I should still wait until 64-BIT Android has bedded down a little more.

My Note 3 is awesome. I don't think I'll have any problems with waiting for the Note 5.

That is quite a leap from 6 months ago.

So here we have the current generation of consoles, anyone want to take a guess at how long it will take before SoCs like this will eclipse them in performance?

With Nvidia, Intel, and AMD all making a hard push towards mobile... I'd say long before we see the next generation of consoles.
