Well it just makes no sense considering it would be much more cost effective to use a chip Samsung manufactures instead of one that Samsung would have to buy from another company.Archean said:
+1 on that one Princeton, Exynos is a better choice IMO as well, and biggest advantage Samsung have is SAMOLEDs ...... a reason because of which I've stuck with GS.
Tegra 2 had the same TDP as my Hummingbird single core. I don't have any on hand but the dual core chips were actually saving battery life by either splitting up tasks, or completing them faster. It's usually referred to as race to the finish processing where you do it as fast as possible to get into idle mode faster.Archean said:
I would prefer 1GHz Dual Core with SAMOLED Plus 720p display just as it may be bit more battery efficient.
Having a very fast or quad core chip in a mobile doesn't make sense for several reasons, e.g. shorter battery life, and erratic software updates (if at all). So having a quad core chip won't future proof a smartphone in anyway.
