purely performance standpoint, i7 is faster than i5 in turbo mode, lower power consumption at base frequency and has better gpu than i5. however, price vs performance ratio is another story altogether.
This one maybe not so true. All U models only dual-core HT enabled. You get slightly faster clock and more cache. What you do get this gen is the better graphics. Not too sure about lower power consumption...


So unless people really need that Graphics, i5 is the most worth it imo lah. noit to mention the last gen i7 thermal issue...

if u hv not noticed, the sp3 i5 and i7 have also same characteristics, lower base frequency for sp3 i7 vs i5 which translate to lesser heat and power consumption. there are sp3 battery life tests that showed i7 indeed has longer battery life. the i7 should also be 10-15% faster on benchmarks.

im not saying i7 has a better price vs performance ratio over the i5 but to those that is willing to pay for the best, i7 is still the better choice.

also do note sp4 heat sink has been redesigned to dissipate heat more evenly as compared to sp3 so the thermal issues you are saying may not be true anymore. besides, there are rumours that the sp4 may be liquid cooled just like the lumia 950s but we dont know until it has been released and cracked open.

It has been "cracked" opened, and here's the internal cooling mechanism:

Got to eat my last words. This popped out today. 'Special Pre-Order Price for a Limited Time only'. Prices might increase after 18 October.
