Reading this makes me thing WP8 probably already supports quad core CPUs.

> In reply to [deleted post]You must be seriously joking with that 4 to 5 days of battery backup, what are using? Mugen Power 5000 mAh battery? My bro Note 2 goes max to max 2 days with moderate use on power saver. With 2 hrs of gaming, 2-3 hrs of call, 4 hrs of messaging and email and 1 hour of web surfing and some 1 hour of songs.

> In reply to [deleted post]1) Your phablet features a 3.1 Ah battery capacity, yet the endurance rating from GSMArena is 69 hours. This is nothing special at all.

2) The endurance rating tells me that you're greatly exaggerating what you can do with the device. Either that or it has got some special magic holy battery. Enabling additional power save modes has NO EFFECT when the phone is idling like it did for most of the time in the gsmarena tests.

3) You apparently still didn't understand what he was sayng.

4) Write properly for f*cks sake. It's not our fault that you made a mistake and went the Android route instead of WP8.

For WP it will most likely be the new low and mid-range choice. Not bad at all. I'd expect Snapdragon 800 or 600 for the high end.

I'm also willing to bet it'll be a good powerhouse for Android, since these are last-gen cores, and Qualcomm usually ships optimized drivers.

It was a comparison between what Android offers at high specs, Windows Phone can also.

Android does have lag, even in Samsung Galaxy S4 when you on to some high multitasking or doing some extreme 3D but I recall, it's percentage is very low as compared to older versions but it does lag. Every OS does.

> In reply to Gelvin @ 2013-06-04 15:33 from sSP9 - click to readYes, Windows Phone needs less resource for now because it has less process to run. Actually in my opinion Windows mobile 8 is a bit incomplete product. You can understand this from lack of file manager, notification center and even FM support is not implemented! Still now its capability can not be compared with Android.. Give a hardware even like Lumia 520 to android 4.2, it will definitely run snappy. Can you think of an Microsoft product running on a weaker hardware without bloatware!

I own a Galaxy S2 (1.2ghz dual core with 850mb of Ram) and it's running "properly". It's all a matter of Rom and kernel optimization. And my phone really rarely ever lags, and I even got stock Samsung JB Rom on it.

I would not say JB4.2.2 lags, on the contrary I feel it's quite slick. But there are always occasional stutters. Sometimes when I exit games like blood and glory:legend or CZK Origins, it all of a sudden freezes with black screen for no reason and have to restart the phone. There's difference between lag and occasional stutter or freezes. For all normal operations it remains slick. I am still mad at android coz N4 happens to have Snapdragon's commercially released most powerful CPU till date with quad cores and i still face these kind of issues so it has to do more with OS' process handling than just hardware. My good ol N86 with symbian on it had lags, but not many abrupt freezes like this. I find these freezes a very annoying considering i own a dual core PC with windows 8 on it and pretty much outdated hardware even at the time when i bought it (which was 2 and half years ago, so you can imagine in today's date how outdated that hardware will be) and still have never faced these kind of issues. I am hoping WP8 also evolves soon and remains robust like its desktop counterpart so that i can switch to Lumia!
