Zenodroid, 16 Jul 2018i guess you dont know sarcasm, do you ? forgive me for I has belittle your so called "sarcasm" in a text-based communication in which was hard to apprehend unless you would use the common /s mark
Zenodroid, 16 Jul 2018source for the majority of the lowend soc ? Sure, no problem.
Average selling price for Android handsets $150-$200.
Common processors and performance are QSD 430 - QSD 625. Devices that run faster like the QSD 636, QSD 660, QSD 710 are not as common. And the high-end QSD 820, 821, 835, 845 are much much less common (although most of the profits come from this market).
Fulljack, 16 Jul 2018you didn't know a thing about SoC, CPU, GPU, and the company behind it aren't you? Someone on a GSM Arena forum was calling him Zenotroll . He isn't exactly popular. Creates many posts, yet has very few allies.
chester, 16 Jul 2018Agree with everything except the cloud thing its useless when network providers charge data use...I agree data would be the biggest factor that's why it's far into the future. The concept of the cloud OS would likely be driven by subscription services. You could likely subscribe to any OS on your gadget. These services may offer data too. My guess is in the future data will be drive by many companies not by a few monopolies. As technology expands and changes it will be free reign to use. Right now companies are testing all sorts of way to bring internet to everyone. I'm not saying it's the ideal scenario but it seems that's the direction things are heading.
One day at time phones will have processors with more than 10GHz..but android -___+

Fast processors would be less needed if we had better software optimisation. Android is usually the culprit with skins, bloatware and certain "optimizations" that slow things down, but pure Android on the Google phones is pretty light and lightning quick. And iOS used to be brilliant, but Apple really dropped the ball with iOS 11. But unless you are gaming or a hotshot trader, even a 3 year old top end processor is usually enough.
Depending on the application itself.
A duel core SD with 512mb ram is more then enough for a Windows phone but not enough for an Android OS.
This is where even a single core processor could be enough depending on the users requirements. I think the apps are well behind with making the most out of hardware but then battery will be a problem.... it's a scale that you have to balance perfectly to get the most out of a system.
Alien , 16 Jul 2018In the last few years I've barely turned on my PC. I do almost everything on my smartphone.
L... moreCorrect! Only a few actually use the extra power in flagship phones and your use case scenario is one of them.
But really, why do people who only use their phones for posting selfies on Facebook buy the most powerful and most expensive ones even if they are practically underutilizing their phone's processing capability?
Simple: PRESTIGE and BRAGGING RIGHTS. "My flagship smartphone has an Antutu benchmark of 200,000+, can your midrange phone beat that?"
"My LaFerrari can go from 0 to 100km/hr in 2.4 seconds." Can your Honda/Toyota do that?" Definitely not. So even if I use my LaFerrari in busy city traffic 90% of the time (grossly underutilized), heads will turn. Prestige and BRAGGING RIGHTS. That's the name of the game.
Zenodroid, 16 Jul 2018Nah. We need at least 5Ghz CPU and 8GB gpu in the phones! But not AMD. Anything else. you didn't know a thing about SoC, CPU, GPU, and the company behind it aren't you?
In the last few years I've barely turned on my PC. I do almost everything on my smartphone.
Lately I've been studying Linux, C++ programming, Java, Bash Script and other programming languages. I study on my phone, I write code and scripts on it, I run and test it on my phone.
Yes, I want more power!
I want to be able to run full blown Linux on my phone in the next 2-3 years. For this to happen, I need more power! RAM, HDD, GPU, CPU. I don't care about the cameras or how good they are.
I'm sorry, isn't this the role of HIGH-END FLAGSHIPS? To bring more power and better specs?
If you're not going to fully use it, then go buy a mid-range device. Those work very good with posting lame selfies on fb..
There is no limit in 'FAST',... today you are faster ....but who knows in the next day.
there are no meaning at all when you got a brand new processor with more speed but your Apps and OS keep them slow again......and that's the business of smartphone now-days, you only can enjoy your best performance only in year one or in first year off your OS release,...after that....you got a slow smartphone again,..... and you buy a new one again.....and so on
Anonymous, 16 Jul 2018There is nothing to brag about phones. What is 1k or 2k? Peanuts compared to cars / branded ba... moreOh come on. Get real. You don't need bragging rights? Why do you then buy the most expensive phones with the fastest processors even if all you do on your phone is post Facebook photos? Why buy a Swiss mechanical watch when a cheap quartz watch takes more accurate time?
It's no longer about sufficiency of function really. It's about image, prestige and bragging rights. Accept it and don't deny it. It's human nature to want the fastest, most expensive, most luxurious brands with the most powerful processors not because cheaper brands with lower processors cannot serve the basic purpose but because the prestige, honor, image and BRAGGING RIGHTS of owning the fastest smartphone, is everything. Nothing to do with needing it to be able to play games. And that's for the majority. Sure some minority will need higher processing power, but for the FACEBOOK loving majority? It's a BIG FAT, NO!
Yes, mobile chips are sufficiently faster for most of the user. Now we need better efficiency & smarter chips for processing AI data.
i guess the better question here would be "are our smartphone processors fast enough FOR THE MONEY WE PAID FOR".
everyone will agree that the faster is better, and yet everyone will also agree that not everyone can/will/should pay for it. there has to be a balance.
having said that, i believe we have come to a point that processors are getting resonable fast enough, generally speaking, and that the line between midrange and flagship-level performance are, for the majority of users, are very blurred as of now.
We need to focus on battery life and lower watt . The majority of phone users dont play games on it.
People who play Android/iOS games prefer to play them on Tablets.
Apple Figured it out well and made the Tablet chip the fastest one and the phone slower but efficient .
