I don't know, I think I need 2 cores to smoothly multitask.

I own a single core phone and at times it chugs or lags when switching from Browser to Twitter.

Its a sales thing....bring more customers and more money in, they make a 230mph motorcycles and cars, do you need them or will you ever go that fast? No...But some people just want to own it and say ya, I have that new quad core phone or new 230mph car...Americans like NEW products

Higher speed cores and better graphics chips should be the focus IMO

I'm all for faster hardware/more cores, my Galaxy S II runs so much better than my original Galaxy S.

It's like the megapixel race all over again. It's not the amount that counts, it's how it's used.

Expectation:

- Holy cow! This phone has 12 megapixels!

Reality:

- Holy cow! It still sucks!

I think it's funny that you, HTC Fan, have Motorola and Samsung devices, but no HTC THIS is why it's stupid to use a product or manufacturer name as a username.
