> In reply to Ishaan. @ 2013-01-29 14:38 from vGcD - click to readCan you prove its a quallcom? I doubt it, even a dualcore quallcom would be hard to fit in a phone at this price. Sorry to say this is probably mediatek, and irs gonna sukk in single threaded performance, its gonna be pwned by even 1GHZ dual Krait.

BTW, A7 is worse than people think, its only the theoretical performance that can compare to A9, in real life its gonna be a sad sad story. Look at that A7 schematics and its die size, and then imagine how an A9 would perform without sufficient cache, and then divide that in 2. Yes, this is gonna be real bad. For real life performance we need cache and more complex architecture, think of a quad A7 as a computing cluster running pentium processors, it has high theoretical MIPS but it has no desktop performance at all. Unfortunately this is how Galaxy S4 will perform in the UI also, it will be running on 4 slow cores instead of 2 fast ones. Thats why iphone and WP8 feels fast, 2 fast cores. And wait for Xperia V/T/TX to get JellyBean, they will be smoother and feel faster than Galaxy S3 and Note 2. Galaxy S4 will be a megastutter if the A15 cores are at sleep while flipping homescreens and playing with the UI.

But still in India, Karbonn is still not as reliable as Micromax is. Micromax is the best local phone manufacturer in India at the moment with the best of the phones with the best of the hardware and other specs.
