this is showing that apple are notany more efficient then the other phone makers, they are just like the rest of the pack.....they are chasing the numbers game, they may be dual core, but 64bit architecture is un heard of yet in a phone and is totally unneeded and it would clearly blow the 32bit competition out of the water as proved in the specs., personally, i hope the phone makers focus on making phones better rather then just making the specs higher, phones are super fast regardless of latest makers design be it LG, or sony, or Samsung or Apple or so on, how about improving the storage, the camera, and so on.......

8 Cores is completely ridiculous. My computer has 8 cores! (4770k) Android probably doesnt even support 8 cores. and i would bet my life that not even 1% of the apps on the android play store supports or will support 8 cores in the future. Why dont these processor companies work on making the current gen quad cores more efficient? Better battery life and performance would result out of that. And app publishers dont have to write more code in order for their app to support 8 cores

HTC ONE: Add a Super Amoled Screen - drop the duller imaging of the LCD. Drop Blink feed as the only option for home screen. HTC ONE MINI: Same changes to screen and blink. but increases its ram to 1.5 to 2gig.
The blink and LCD were limiting recently so in the interim I just bought our 2nd HTC One S due to slimness, No Blink and Super Screen - nice.
Winner

Hardly relevant.
More importantly is the PRISM spy issues with all things Google, and that means Android.
You have to be crazy to have an Android device in today's world if you value your privacy.

Oww that fancy CPU.. Great!
and it's so hard for them to pack a new octa ultra pixel (8ûP), isn't it?

Where are the Samsung HATERS its the same design come on where are you all? Next so they FOLLOWED Apple with their design also without memory card and replaceable battery and followed Nokia with Colored Lumias so now following Samsung with 8 core stay tuned to GSM Arena folks so to see whats next the point when manufacturers jump on the internet as if they were THE FIRST when they are following someone else thats crazy

Have you ever heard of HTC ZETA?
http://www.gsmarena.com/htc_zeta-4333.php
It was rumored to be launched 1 year before HTC One X...It was a dream phone, those specs at that time were killer ones...now they are obsolete (except for the processor that is exactly snapdragon 800 tacted at 2.5 ghz).
so..everything is possible.

And the android numbers race continues, I think the iphone 5s and moto x have proven that the higher the number of cores doesn't necessarily mean better performance, I mean look at apples latest A7 dual core CPU, it blows every current device CPU out of the water even samsungs own octa core S4.

Hope they bump the pixel count of the UltraPixel camera to double its current pixels. This would make it considerably better than the vast majority of Android phones.

Hey, and if they add optical stabilization then we are really in business :)

I am glad they are sticking with the same design, which together with the Xperia is y far the best in the Android world (not quite as elegant and simple as the iPhone, but close).
