You might have a high tolerant for lag, but my Galaxy S2 is laggy for a dual core compares to single core Lumia 900 and iPhone 4. There are plenty of videos showing lag on Galaxy S2 too of you want to see.

You can always use windows 7 anyway, big deal.

Galaxy s2 and no lagging on youtube videos maybe onluöy when playing 1440p, but that is useless for phones. Nokia is already dead (because of wp os). Wake up man.Windows is the most crappiest system both on phone and pc.

I disagree, the name Geek is actually what attracted me to this. Now from what I can see they've packed a massive processer in this thing with sub-par RAM and battery, it's jsut going to suffer with Xperia Z syndrome...

This should have FULL windows desktop OS instead of Android. What a waste

This phone has a dual core processor that has been proven to be faster than the S4 in some situations but the GPU on the S4 is better. The clovertrail+ is only Dual Core though, so competiting with a Flagship A15 Quad/Octa is very impressive.
I currently have a single core Intel Atom device and the phone has 1GB of ram and it never lags and I don't need to clean the ram. The processor is very impressive and it is a serious rival to the A15 in my opinion.

why not 2gb or minimum 1.5gb of ram, this phone has a good chipset and the battery must be 3000mah.

My note only had 1GB of RAM and once a week or so i had to clear it because it was running slow.

My Note 2 has 2GB and never needs to be cleared.

The Geek is meant to be a high end device so should have 2GB of RAM.

After all the hard work put in to create this phone, they killed it by a wtf four letter name given to this phone.

Well done.

I do not want a phone with the name 'Geek'.

Agreed, 2 gigs of RAM is essential nowadays with so many stuff running in the background that you rarely have control over. Problem is once you have a big game for example running in the backgound you're done with your memory if its 1GB. Sadly though, running unopened apps in the background is the way android works
