@mariu$ i understand that the dual core i better for games but i heard that there is no lagg during video play back on the Desire S from a few friends (not sure though)...it is just that im worried about the heat its gonna produce for the higher processing power...
but i guess we cant say anything about that too until its put into a test
dual core is supposed to actually get better battery life than single core because the CPU's are more efficient, do less work for the same processing power, and are newer and optimized better.

Early reviews on the lg optimus 2x says that battery life on dual core is more or less the same as the old style single cores. Above is what the companies claim, but do you rember they said that with the origimal snapdragon?? They said battey life on it will be as good as other phnoes at the time? But they were wrong

Also remember these are the first generation of dual cores so they may not be as well optimized yet! Kust like 2nd gen snapdragon inproved mainly performance amd effiency (therefore improving battery life!
