Default Single core/Dual core smartphones, poll

You're next smartphone, what will you be buying/holding out for a single core device or a dual core?

Why?

This is specifically with you in mind Sky.

dual core = more power requirements = more battery consumption = less battery life?

I'm not stating...I'm asking, amirite?

I'm wondering the same. However, I would hope the cores are fabricated smaller therefore they would consume less energy, so if you did need power it could switch to both.


I'm just waiting for that PSP phone, if they update the hardware.

Battery Tech is really the short end of current technology at this point. As that improves, and processors become more efficient, battery life will become a non-issue.

I'm more worried about the point where phones turn into tablets.

As processors become more efficient, they become more powerful, which requires a bigger screen to show off that processing power.

Android needs to get their battery life issues sorted out before they start adding MORE processing power.

I've been hearing this for the last 7 years (5 of those were spent selling cell phones) and batteries have yet to keep up. They're absolutely horrible with the other technology out there. There's no reason My phone should be dead by 5pm unless I spent 8 hours talking on it. Sucks that batteries are the weak link.

Plus greater power requirements = great cooling requirements?

Again I'm asking. How long before mobile smart phones start needing active cooling systems because they're so powerful, further shortening battery life and efficiency.

Protoge- I will then.



Hatchd- My iPad has a fantastic blend of battery life and power. Charge it once a week at most. My iPhone will get through 15 hours or so with wifi/blutooth turned on. I'd love to see more life though. Battery tech is lagging the rest of tech, and will continue to do so. It's better over the last couple years, but still not great.

I'd like a dual core, but I'm more interested in a higher res screen and longer battery life.

there should be a poll option of "# of cores does not affect my purchase"

I would choose that one.

My Epic 4g isn't too bad. Well, at least compared to my previous smartphones, most of which have been the PPC series from Audiovox/UTStarcomm/HTC.

When compared to my backup dumbphone, my Android phone has terrible battery life. When put up against my previous smartphones it is better than anything else I have had so far.

I can easily get 48 hours out of my Droid 2 thats with texting most of both days and the occasional game and web browsing.

Really all a phone battery needs to do is last from the time you wake till the time you go to bed. Pretty sure 90% of people plug their phones in at night.

You must be a light user then. We have two iphone 4s and 2 3Gs in our enviroment, and with just push email, and moderate use, our users are lucky to get 6 hours before absolutely having to put them on chargers.

...and those who keep it charged in their cars during the commute drives...

...and those who have them charged in their speaker docks at work.

As long as the phone is snappy fast, runs Android, is rootable and has a nice screen I do not care about # of cores.

Unrelated rant: I wish somebody would release a modern Android phone with the exact same physical keyboard as my G1. All keyboards suck in comparison.

Interesting thread. Is it hyper?

As batt tech is the sticking point, either that will need to be improved or the size of other components will need to be reduced to increase the space the bigger cell will need. 28nm is the next step for processors. Dont know which mobile proc. manufacturers are jumping to it yet.

Dual core, ASSUMING android handles additional cores properly. Ideally multiple cores use less power under base load but still have the headroom when you need it. Depends on how well android handles parallel tasks.
