MediaTek announces first true octa-core processor - read the full textMediaTek has officially announced the world's first true octa-core processor. The latest SoCs allows all the eight cores to run simultaneously, unlike the Samsung implementation, which can activate up to half of its CPU cores at once. The true octa-core processors offer you enhanced performance,...

Most TVs tell you all you need to know about the source, that's how you check it.

This is actually (kind of my point), how *nominal* resolution means very little.

Really render at 1080p during the intensive 3d game is run..
Unless pc....we can check the reso in the video setting..
The way you try 2 convince here that gaming for smartphone is truly 1080 reso is blinded opinion.
Do the android game can set resolution Setting while played??
Or you just lie to yourself.......

Just now we are not talking about gaming just saying desktop os already can run at 1080 reso 10 years nothing to proud of current smartphone in able running the same reso.
I wanna ask u you think all android/ios game running in ful hd 1080p 1089x1920.....??do you??

If you say yes.....
then you are makin biggest silly joke of the friend..

If you were having troubles with h264 then forget about h265 entirely.

Also, it's not just about *nominal* resolution, it's about what you can run at that resolution.
A perfect example of that are the 3D games vs simple desktop programs. The higher the resolution the higher are the computational requirements for 3D applications.

You would require a pretty amazing GPU for your P4 to run 3D games similar to the ones now available for android at 1080p resolution (a GPU which wasn't of the time/era of your CPU).

Simple physics is: more space you have, more powerful hardware you can put more power you can get. PC desktops will be all the time more powerful than any mobile platform just because it has more space for hardware, which gives more solutions for cooling and Utilization.For example, Xbox one and ps4 will use mobile AMD jaguar platform octa core 1.6 and 2.0 GHz respectively making new machines slim and tiny solving any heating problems current gen consoles had. Comparing to most powerful mobile phone platform A15, Jaguar easily beating it in any aspects: raw power, float points calculations and so on. Well is laptop platform has more space for hardware and better cooling solutions than smartphones simple as that. Let's compare jaguar to desktop performance like i5 3570k..and i5 approx is 50+% faster than jaguar platform :))) so please stop talking about things which is phycically impossible now. My s4 with kraits cores is heating like hell when I playing intense graphics games, simple you can't put powerful CPU without proper cooling, where is just no space in smartphone shell, maybe in a future after 30-50 years nano CPU's will change a situation but anyway if you will create small and tiny Proccesors with unlimited power why can't you do it easier for desktops with more space to use???????

but the OS win9x desktop environment already can scale to real
1080*1920 resolution for last 10 years ago.
So....nothing special/surprise with 1080 in 2013 smartphone.

Good luck decoding h265 in your P4...

All the fancy talk about 60fps or vsync or triple buffering sound so good on paper.. But in reality its a big lie and joke. IT barely can squeeze all the work into a 16ms time frame.. (60fps).. So if the scrolling involve pictures/downloads and it is not cached.. it LAGS and shows up.

Simply open google playstore.. see how laggy the scrolling is when it loads new pictures. See how sucky chrome is compared to its iOS counterpart. Same with TONS of other applications.. twitter / fb / viber / etc etc.

But its not saying its not doable, it takes LOTS of effort to make it LAG free. Good example of android apps, like flipboard/nova launcher/and brand apps (s note, or sense 5.0) are almost lag free. It just takes up lot of time to update for phone makers.

heard of jellybean? it's exclusive to google for use in android. It forces 60Hz animation. Google used high speed RED camera's at 240fps and they could not get the lag.

Lag is a lie and a myth started by WP users because of having no features.

Android is the professional smart phone users choice.

And that one is resolution at 2592 x 1944... much greater then s4 .. or any 1080p androids..

How come that one does not lag when playing / running the exactly same application? ... OOPS?

The lag comes from android.. NOT the processors.. so the fault is not with samsung/htc or phone makers. Its the OS that is crap.. and failed to optimized the cpu/gpu usage..

So point back to this octa core, it might have good features and power... BUT android take advantage of it? .. i bet not.
