TDMaster, 11 Jun 2012all i can say that when Intel / Nokia will reach the market share of Android they can say what... moreIn fairness you just asked for a processor manufacturer to catch up to a mobile os market share... that makes no sense, android is not in competition with intel surely you ment that intel need to catch up with arm's market share??
Fox says grapes sour, but it really is.
are the manufacturers and retailers fool having the multi core processor with android. Lol
Android should have PureCores lineup for Android for every phone makers.
they should also try overclocking to hit 4GHz each core to run Angry Birds hehehe
Kiran's talk, 12 Jun 2012Android is getting quad core and now this comes.I was about to get the quad core HTC One X before I saw this but now I dont know whether to get the samsung note with its high powered Dual core or not =P
quad core dual core in mobiles are eye wash and complete marketing strategy by mobile companies to sell their devices resulting draining the cell by extra and useless cores. Cosidering the size and capacity limit of battery in mobile phones these extra cores are burden & juice-sucker and nothing else. A mobile phone cannot be a full fleged computer and cannot carry a large Ampere hour battery as back up. So these mobile companies should cosider to cut these so-called extra cores to extend the discharging time of mobile batteries.
AnonD-11222, 11 Jun 2012actually HTC one X offers good battery because of fifth low power core clocked at 500Mhz, just... moreOh yeah i definitely agree with you there. However only some Tegra 3 games drain the battery considerably, not all of them.
But saying that, what do people expect? I expect my battery to drain if I'm playing a game that uses the full hardware potential of the phone. (and I mean that regardless of which OS i'm using).
Wish they would put higher capacity batteries like the old days lol
Whatchasay, 11 Jun 2012No. He didn't say it doesn't make use of dual and quad cores. He said it doesn't make effici... moreOK i missed the word "efficient".
Ive never used a phone with their single core processor so I cant comment on its performance. All I can say is compared to what I've had in the past, Nvidia Tegra 3 is fast enough.
I think it was obvious to most tech-aware people .... not a reason to bash but I can confirm that Lumia 800 is really impressive compared to ... whatever you want, including the mighty iPhoney
Real blame is on Soc manufacturers!
When yo can not find source for let's says FM radio that go in kernel you can't compile it! And it whose happened many times! Not that on WP or iOS yo have regular updates! I don't se not a one developer or firm out there that's reedy for hard core development of let's say Linux kernel and assembly optimizing it. Goggle is abusing Linux and that most change! For Soc manufacturers that don't care about costumers simply don't bay them! I em awaiting to se haw Ziilabs upcoming ZMS-40 based tablet will bare this because they developed they one aps for Android and haw costume Linux tu.
It clear....android dont use multi cores effectively bcoz intel is not manufacturing multi core chipset.....in future if they then then android will use its multicores effectively...i hav htc one X its awesome....i agree android should make there os little more perfectly....i am happy with my htconex......but use of custom kernels can make ur android experince better...using a multicore mobile means u have take charger where ever u go.....last but not least gaming experience is lot better in android (htconex) than my fathers iphone...
Actually, 11 Jun 2012Intel has an Android phone sold in India.but that's run on single core x86, not ARM multi cores. So it didn't use that unoptimized multi cores usage stated on the article.
AnonD-8143, 11 Jun 2012As much as am a fan of Intel, this statement is stupid considering the fact that Android is pu... moreAndroid is not fully open on development phase. You can get the released source code, and apply your optimization. But when the new version is out, you HAVE TO re-apply your optimization, which may or may not compatible with the new version. Just admit it already. Manufacturers are meant manufacture devices, not developing OS. That's the job of OS developers. And outsiders (non google) cannot submit even a single line of code to the internal source as it actually not open source when they are in development phase.
i dont know much about kernel or programming thing. I know one thing, my Samsung S8500 is the fastest mobile I have ever seen, iPhone is an exception. I sold that because of meager application store. So, this is definitely about programming stuff. I remember old days when we used to feel proud of higher gigahertz desktop processors, but the scene changed.
I said many times before. Android is the most poorly optimized, most buggy, and most unreliable OS I have seen. Windows Phone and iOS have much better satisfaction ratings. Top 7 out of 10 rated phones on Amazon are Windows Phone.
Ok, let do some thinking here, why do phones frm china can handle 4sims with single core. An better bat. Life,? The are loud, with inbuilt fm&tv receivers? Now that's software optimisasion, so the truth is what da hell do u need a daul core without all this goodies, so where were we, oh! So which is de best phone? I can't here u, what did u just say? Dual cores should have more to offer guys wake up.
Inefficient multi-core management? Just root your phone and run a custom kernel. For example, i run faux123's kernel on my HTC sensation. It effectively decides when to use one or two cores and at what frequency too. I get both excellent performance and battery life (:
AnonD-8143, 11 Jun 2012As much as am a fan of Intel, this statement is stupid considering the fact that Android is pu... more100% agree. But it pops a question for me, with so many SoC variations, why android don't set a single standard instructions that all SoC must have so they can more focus on optimizing the OS? The same thing may goes with many newcomer graphic chips, eventhough ChainFire can help but it's not the same as standardized driver from manufacturer. Seems like SoC manufacturer don't do their homework. They just want to sold it "as is" without further support as possible. Shame.
Or Actually this Dude wanted to say, Quallcomm, Samsung or Texas Instrument (Which are the android's processor vendor) are Lack of Capabilities to optimize Multicore's SoC. And He really wants to say "buy INTEL's multicore processor" after they release their products. Haha... Advertising is started..
