I got HTC One X+ with Tegra 3 and Beats Audio and my phone have greatest sound I have ever heard on smartphone.

I read that 4X has some issues with sound but that can be fixed with amplifier settings.

I feel that in 2014-2015 the smarthpones will be at the same level at gaming as PC, XBOX360 or PS3.

The problem would be battery life.

Hope they can provide that, as smartphones require better battery life then graphics.

"along with a second generation battery saver core, similar to Tegra 3."

No need to read more, what good is 4 A15 cores when they do not wakeup when there is work to be done? Look at Asus 700 Infinity tablet, the one with Tegra 3 quadcore (WIFI version) is so stuttering and freezing that its as good as useless for webbrowsing, but the same tablet with dualcore Krait (the 3G version) is smooth and snappy.

There has been indepth discussions on this topic on other cellphone sites, like AA, people dont want the 5th core, whats the use of a high nd chipset when 99% of the time the performance is like a Galaxy Pocket? Even Xperia Tipo blows Tegra 3 devices away in smoothness.

I remember the same hype that was given to tegra3 last year, it failed to match the performance of exynos and snapdragon in the end..let's hope this year it really proves to be better
