In some cases, dual channel can be slower than single channel because it has higher timings. It remains to be seen if dual channel will even have an impact on a smartphone; loading massive photos into RAM for editing on a desktop takes a lot more power than loading part of a 10MB application into RAM on a smartphone. At the end of the day, we are left throwing around pointless facts.
I said "like" getting quad or dual. In no way does dual-channel bring such performance increases, I'm just saying it's an upgrade.

But you're right about a lot of that. Everything BlueBiker says.
