LG working on 8-core chip called Odin, Optimus G II bound - read the full textThe LG Optimus G II is still some time ahead with an expected launch next fall, but the rumor mill is already in motion regarding its chipset, as the KoreaTimes reports. LG is probably heading down the route of a home-brewed chipset much like Samsung and Huawei. Their first chipset, dubbed Odin,...

this chipset gives me a smell of optimus 8x not g2
almost everyone is aware of the fact that optimus g2 will be sporting snapdragon 800
and at top lgs phone d801 is been shown on gl benchmark with sdragon 800

Pretty good in terms of the phone specifications. But the one minus point for LG would be that the looks of their phones have never been anywhere near Samsung. Most of their phones look like a brick and that the worst part. But I have one about their phone, where can I get their new phone, the phone released only major cities in India?
I actually like the design of the phone and I'm warming up to the LG UI but there's still something about how the notification drop-down looks that I don't like. Maybe it's the way that every manufacturer tends to clutter the area with special "features"

Two years from now octa core(double quad) will be high range while single quad will be mid ranged. Soon we will have bf3 or better on smartphones.

It doesn't matter if Apple's SoC are top notch in synthetic benchmarks, games developed for iOs are not optimized for the higher specs A6, A6X or even a possible A7, they are targeted to A5/A5X which are, still, the vast majority.

And of course games runs smoothier on those A6 powered devices, just like an Android game runs smoothier on a SGS3 than on a SGS2.

And about game consoles... Since when a low-end PCs have best image quality then game consoles ? Ah, you mean those AMD APUs, don't you? Well, about time eh? It's been, what, 7 years since 360 launch? Anyway. We're talking about consoles released six/seven years ago and still the major bunch of non game PCs haven't the pace to keep up with them.

Again, raw graphical power of Apple SoCs have nothing to do. Apple is king of the hill since 3GS, which performs better than the original Samsung SGS although having a similar SoC. A closed system have it's advantages. Believe it or not it's all about marketing.

''LG kinda neglected this side of the Android device business in the recent years. '' I wouldn't say so...

Further, closed systems are no guarantee for better performance, only for more predictable performance. While consoles may look like giving high quality gaming at a first quick glimpse, the actual quality is by any means sub par to even a bog standard dirt cheap PC.

It may be more easy for a developer to develop for a fixed set of hardware, but even there the reasoning goes off, as Apples gadgets have different sets of hardware with different performance levels. It all comes back to the point that Apple adds relatively big GPU's to it's SoC's, which makes gaming more fluent.
