We finally got some official news surrounding the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2‘s availability, and whether or not it will come equipped with a dual-core or quad-core processor. When we first heard about the new slate from Samsung we couldn’t help but think that is wasn’t a very big improvement over the original Galaxy Tab 10.1, sporting only a 1GHz dual-core processor.
As everyone knows, the international HTC One X has the NVIDIA Tegra 3 quad-core processor and to make things work with LTE, they created the HTC One XL that is essentially the same phone, but with the dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4. This is essentially what is available on AT&T, but marketed as the One X, a little confusing I know. Now Samsung did the same thing with their Galaxy S III.
I want to pick up a new budget android phone and i have narrowed down my choices between these two, Lava Iris 501 or 458q
The 501 has a 5in screen with a dual core cpu but the 458 has quad core but it is 4.5in, which one would you guys choose? They both have 512mb ram so does it matter if its a quad core or dual core since the ram is limited.
Written by: Alex Zaharov-ReuttWith models of the HTC One and Samsung Galaxy SIII sporting dual-core chips with 4G/LTE in the US, but quad-core chips for their 3G models, some are wondering whether Apple’s iPhone 5 will be similarly “core-tailed”, or whether an Apple A6 processor can mix and match quad core with the 4G pedal to the metal – while retaining more than sufficient battery life.
HTC took the wraps off a new version of their HTC One X at the Chinese Telecommunications Fair. Going by the name HTC One XC, the phone will have a 4.7-inch 1280×720 pixel screen and 1GB of RAM. Images of the case suggest it will come in black with gold trim elements. Several sources are reporting this device will be powered by a quad-core Snapdragon S4 chip.
Today most tablets and smartphones on the market have dual core processors on them. But some of them have quad core processors like iphone 5 and Nexus 7. I know dual core has benefits but how does quad core help when you basically can only run one app at a time?
