When compared to A10 Fusion, the multi core is good, but the more important single core is underwhelming.if Qualcomm and Mediatek still doesn't care about single core score rather than these unimportant "Octavio-core" adverts, and if the Android world still doesn't want to adopt UFS 2.1 or NVMe, they won't also be this year able to beat iPhone 7 and it will again be the fastest phone all the way through it's life cycle
Kevin1989, 22 Jan 2017the question remains, do we need 8 cores?.
whatever good comes from having 8 cores is an impa... moreIf you are talking about only android devices then I got to admit that a quad core soc at 3Ghz is more than sufficient.
Besides, Microsoft is partnering with Qualcomm to bring native desktop apps to mobile arm based devices.
That's the reason why SD835 is an octa core flagship soc, as full blown desktop apps can efficiently utilise multi core CPU while having more cores gives those apps more headroom for compute performance while combining those cores with efficient 10nm FinFET fab process helps to achieve more battery life.
So, small notebooks can use Snapdragon SOC instead of Intel or AMD for cost saving.
Having all that power on a mobile device is mostly an overkill tbh. Android is more resource efficient than windows or its apps(only considering pure android). But, it is as they say, 'more the merrier'....
Don't release new phone.U should solve all the problems or ur Moto z.High heating and battery drain fastly.
Zenodroid, 21 Jan 2017Newest cpu and os, but not up to date on the ram. Not getting my money bc of that. Go to z force review, where z defeat note 7 with RAM 6Gb. Biggrr RAM just for multi tasking, this is just mobile not desktop

I see 3.2GHZ dual or quad core to be the perfect frequency and architecture.
Then again this worthless benchmark is hitting cores this way..
Core 0 - 1.9GHz - 100%
Core 1 - 1.9GHz - 70%
Core 2 - 1.9GHz - 5%
Core 3 - 1.9GHz - 5%
Core 4 - 2.4GHz - 5%
Core 5 - 2.4GHz - 5%
Core 6 - 2.4GHz - 5%
Core 7 - 2.4GHz - 5%
Anonymous, 21 Jan 2017It already support wireless charging with a battery modWhat battery mod? You mean a cheap unreliable bit of Chinese plastic & wires from Amazon or eBay? No tanks! Want it built in.
Anonymous, 21 Jan 2017Wait for the plus version. This is just the small one.The plus will probably need a briefcase, 2 power banks and glasses to see the 4k you don't see anyway.

aatif khan, 21 Jan 2017Hopefully they keep near stock Android, as with past iterations of Z,X,G,E family. If lenov... moreOnly the Chinese Moto's are getting ZUI, rest assured that the worldwide variants will ship with Moto's usual light skin
If the bottom bezel isn't crazily huge like the first gen Z's, then I'd lovo to have that phone!
Whatever they do, they have to release the Z Force variant outside the us. It is common sense.
Newest cpu and os, but not up to date on the ram. Not getting my money bc of that.
