Android Man, 21 Nov 2012yes that would be why the Samsung Note 2 battery last like 5 days is it then. 5 days? What, standy time?
The note 2 is big and very bulky tablet like phone. Still, it only has enough juice for 8hrs and 48 minutes of surfing, or 11 hours and 27 minutes of video playback, or 16 hrs and 57 minuts of talk time. No where near the much smaller RAZR MAXX, which even still has a bigger battery.
Even the RAZR i's Intel has proved to be quite kind on the battery offering over 20 hours of talk time from this very small device.
Most normal sized high end phones should offer 2500 - 3300 mAh batteries, and larger ones - 5" and up - should reach 3500 - 4000 mAh capacity. Then not only Motorola customers would be able to use their phones all day long.
why the hell they are making mobile phones supercomputers cureently their is no app in android market that use that much horsepower
And all the software will be out of date by the next year because it'll decide you need 32 cores to run android 9.5 or whatever they have pushed by that point. And the battery will last half hour if you actually use it. My 600 MHZ single core iphone 3gs has the latest software and it's 3 years old. If android can do that, maybe ill think about switching.
well i have a note 2. the battery is just amazing. the longest i had going for with heavy use is 5 days. well done samsung. very happy.
Mihai, 21 Nov 2012it is all fine and dandy but how about some new batteries? You can buy bigger batteries if you need them, look up Mugen.
Anonymous, 21 Nov 2012haha your quad core s3 got beaten by a dual core iphone5 when browsing the web!! Prove how ... moreiOS web browser Safari using HTML5, but in Android web browser is more complicated and allow user to change the User Agent and Flash support, so giving a similar desktop browsing experience on mobile phone.
Mihai, 21 Nov 2012it is all fine and dandy but how about some new batteries? Agreed!!!! These phones are all junk with their 1 million cores 16 million GB ram, storage, bla bla bla..... they are all JUNK if they dont upgrade the most important part of a phone: THE FREAKING BATTERY!!!!!!!!!
My SGS2 battery goes flat in less than a day when I use it!
Anonymous, 21 Nov 2012More core is more energy efficient vs performance..
On the outside u see no difference, st... moreI know it'll still be a soc and won't take up any more space, didn't know that multi cores were more efficient/performance so thanks for that :-) But i didn't mean that the CPU would take away battery space i just meant I'd prefer a slightly thicker phone with a much beefier battery, seems phone makers have got it into their heads thinner is better, ok agreed i don't want a brick in my pocket but something about 12-15mm thick would be perfectly acceptable, and with all that extra volume in the body of the phone filled with battery i think it would be great.
This is just my opinion, feel free to disagree.
4 cores, 8 cores,,,,,, 16 cores..... Whatever..... 95% of apps is not able to use full potential of even 2 cores!!!! I bet plenty people will be showing of their new phones with 8 cores and saying "my phone got 8 cores and yours only 2?" STUPID!
Anonymous, 21 Nov 2012well android is a full computer system. freedom and customizable. ios is an app launcher. But ... moreAndroid is NOT a full computer system. It's just a mobile operating system. Apple and Microsoft did not build and NO ONE can build a full desktop operating system in only five years. It took them almost 4 decades to have done so.
1080p screens and now 8 core cpus. Hilarious! There's a lot more than hardware to phones. Soon we'd be able to custom build our phones like we do our computers. Now wouldn't that be ridiculous. Simple case of more for the sake of more.
Venkat-India, 21 Nov 2012Why you are comparing iOS vs Android. It's something like comparing MS-DOS(iOS) with Windows(... moreYou got it wrong. iOS is Mac. Android is Linux. And Windows Phone is Windows. Windows will never be the counterpart of Android in the desktop world because Windows is closed-source and Android is open source, so the desktop counterpart of Android is Linux which it also got its kernel from, and Windows Phone 8's desktop counterpart is Windows 8 itself, both are based on Windwos NT. There is no smartphone counterpart for MS-DOS. iOS is to Mac.
Boss, 21 Nov 2012Your comparing is same like comparing Windows and DOS! lol Is that the best example u have got?I didn't find lesser technology than MS-DOS to compare iOS.
This news NEVER CONFIRMED by Samsung so chill out people.
Besides, nobody said all the 8 cores will work at the same time, it's just another improved quad-core.
