Not sure how you made this mistake.

Obviously apple is eons ahead in OS pathway with Microsoft finally maturing a far better mobile system.

Had Google taken control of Motorola and rid motor of its antiquated pipeline and engineering AND developed topline Nexus then android might not have become so fragmented. And perhaps be much further ahead development wise.....instead bells and whistles and prompt and bluster are used to advance the Droid system.

Mostly is been totally inadequate and very poor test engineering that's brought android to where it is today. It could be so much more by now if you didn't have carriers and device owns writing versions of android...period end of report

NOT OPTIMIZED like apple and apple only has 1 line of phones and 1 tablet range ...it would be stupid if they can't optimize games for just a short list of devices

Obviously more likely part of flagship lineup as an Optimus rather than next nexus. More's the pity as original intent to nexus was topend flagship level for owns to follow...

Shall be interesting to watch the what and wherefore to this tidbit shall land....

MS Trident made a huge jump in recent years on that. But performance is not everything in browser. Browser also needs good UI. Something that mobile IE and Firefox misses. They both got very non-practical and poorly functional UI. That's about both phone and tablet IE and Firefox.

This is crazy...

Even Quadcore/Octacore (incl. SGS4) is laggy.
I'm not a WP-fan, not at all, but even the Lumia 620 with a 1GHz Dual-Core and "only" 512MB of RAM (available for only 200€!!) beats the SGS3 with JB in BrowserMark. Just again a proof that Android sucks.

For me: exaggeration on datasheet, NO THANKS.
