Dual core A15s are the way to go currently until quad core A15s come out. As most apps aren't made to take advantages of 4 cores, so a way more powerful dual core is your best bet.

Quadcore will be very useful on real multi tasking like Maemo on the n900....

Hopefully we will see it in future updates of Android??..

As for the One X i Think the battery is not actually that bad. Its very good when idle but can get a bit greedy in use, but all boils down to what you actually use the phone for and how often..

And dun worry bout battery life. quad core r rly optimized to have btr battery life on standby n while using they change their processing power to suit ur usage.

Cheers


The hardware requirements we place on phones doubles about every year but my Galaxy Note can handle almost anything I can throw at it 1.4Ghz dual cure is well an truly future proof at least for now and more cores doesn't necessarily make it faster just means you can do more things at once you want a higher clock speed, rather than worrying about how many cores your phone has think about how much RAM it has

Will be interesting to see the apps that support the 4+1 cpu..

I know there are a few kicking about but none that really appeal to me...

Nice ^ -.-

Anyway google 4+1 cpu Tegra and you will see a few apps that support the tegra 4+1

I'd like to have something with dual-core A15. However, it would be interesting to compare its performance+powersaving with 4+1 systems.

Not to mention more power efficient.

So newer games may like the quad core better, but like the 1st response, most of the time i dont think you would need it, and then the extra umph would kill battery...

What you say is correct , because people tend to buy quad processors for gaming .

If someone were to make a game that needs quad core, they're stupid. The fact is no one would make quad core apps now cause the industry is dominated by single and dual cores. If they make an app that needs quad core, single and dual core users can't use it. Thus earning less for them.

Always go for the best technology, coz in future apps will be available for quad core and even if u dnt play games , u should go for quad core..
