Huawei is working on a quad-core Cortex-A15 1080p flagship? - read the full textToday some interesting rumors originating from China have surfaced. The local manufacturer Huawei is reportedly working on a direct Galaxy S4 competitor with a 4.9-inch 1080p display and a quad-core 1.8GHz ARM Cortex-A15 processor. The rest of the rumored specs include 2GB of RAM, Mali T604 GPU,...

Please don't mention lag on this rumored phone. IF this rumor is to be true, this will be the MOST powerful handset to date, on any platform, and add that with Android's ever evolving nature, lag would really be irrelevant, don't you think?

While denying you even blamed in the first one. And I didn't fiercely defend or blame. I replied to false comments with fact. Then you say it must be because you're a such and such fan. I like Droid, but I'm a fan of all good tech. Its pretty obvious who the fan is when they scapegoat their faults onto others. Crapple is the only one I don't like and that's because they are literally like a real life version yet very lame in comparison of umbrella corporation. And just full of old and restrictions. Yet they are the most blindly occultly followed of all. Yes it gets marginal speed advantages but it only does it by being one single phone to one os and by having system wide restriction only made to make a false image of perfection. Yet what they lack falls miles behind for it being the only phone. Not to mention the issues at release for it being just one device. And also you are mainly comparing the 5 "which is technically the 6-wahoo there is their innovation of the year" to the Us S3 which is dual core. And the answer is Android is a computer and IOS is an application launcher. Not mention a 4.8HD display at 720p as compared to 4inch at qhd and a removable battery vs a built in "and still too small given it's lithium polymer nature" battery.

Now look at it this way:

Compare a dual core(ip4s) to quad core phone(s3). (The dual core performs better and faster then the quad core phone.. then where did that extra power go?)

Sure say the extra power is used for multi-tasking.. but why does the scrolling in application still lag and slow even if all the other apps are closed and stopped?

The battery is larger, why does it have the same battery life rating as ip5?

In other words; the lag and delay touch is inexcusable.

What i commented before is truth, i did not blame anyone for my actions only myself, because i was a android geek/fanboy before, like you i fiercely defended android, blaming wp8 ios for any small issues. But now i am enlightened, i pick the side with the best performance and quality. If android prove me wrong again in KLP about lag and touch response, i will gladly jump back.

OWS?huawei is taking rapidly the market share compare with other brands! they been offered in postpaid plans offered by the giant telecom comapanies: Smart, Globe and Sun! Filipinos are awakened that aside from those well-known brands such as samsung and sony, though iphone is in another story, there are giants smartphone makers that can compete when in comes in performance, and durability...whre new to this brand but we've been using their products in diffrent category such as LTE, and broadband facilities! Bravo HUAWEI!

> In reply to Anonymous @ 2013-03-26 03:51 from PGXj - click to readSee. I just stated the logical truth. All computer systems in the world have flaws. But all you can do is get all defensive and then scape goat your defensiveness onto others. Then not even have the guts to directly reply to me. All systems have lags and flaws. Its the undeniable truth. To believe otherwise is childish and naive. Because again "to your scapegoating" its everyone else that wnats to pretend their system is flawless and that Android lags constantly. It doesnt. Not to mention IOS being a restricted locked down app launcher to create the illusion of perfection while Android is closer to a full computing system wide and customizable. Does Android have lag at times? Yes. Does IOS? Yes. Does Mac and Windows? Yes. Not to mention IOS is so restricted some old flip phones let you do more...and have you experienced, seen, or watched videos on IOS 5-6 issues? Especially on older icraps?

Just told the truth that its not extreme and that others have it too. Yet here you come all butt hurt saying it lags it lags it lags...Good job

That is because it uses a pentile matrix which is not directly comparable to rgb matrix. So yeah this Huawei will have much clearer image (for those who have the eyes to see) but far worse contrast...

Android lag is true. Android fanboys deny it with all their might. Youtube videos showing the lag is given terrible rating thumb downs. Living in denial everyday, tweaking to no end, comfort themselves by scrolling endlessly on their home screen launcher daily to show its smooth.. but when they open application like facebook, or chrome browser.. the scrolling is so bad its embarrassing.

They will put widget on their homescreen to hide this embarrassment, so they do not need to be seen using laggy application. And they need the control bar to toggle wifi 3g 4g endlessly because if not their phones will run out of battery in no time.

They make sure to use all their time to show off their phones to friends and family, so they use geeky features that normal people did not use.

They always hope the next android version will fix this lag.. like now with jellybean.. they have high hopes for KLP. They change phones with octa core .. 16 cores to hoping the lag will be gone.

Why do i know such stuff you ask?.. Because i used to be like that ... im ashamed of myself.

There is no such thing as perfection in this entire world. All computer systems lag and hiccup. Desktops as well and ALL cellphones. And Android does not do it so excessively. And to talk about cheap or older ones have you ever used a three year old wp or ios device? Lmao. Laaaag. The 4S had the most crashed apps of all mobile os's. To believe in these silly illusions is no short of pathetic.
