Is it likely that the US version would be a little laggy considering its only running on a dual core or does the 2gb make up for its speed?
Do you think the iPhone 4 is laggy? I'm talking about the 4, not the 4s. It only has a dual core with 512mb of ram. It really makes a difference when a manufacturer has control over the hardware and the OS, to ensure they play well with each other. IMO, this is why Samsung is the Apple of the Android world and why they are becoming the #1 brand.
And 2gb of RAM is really iciing on the cake. I pay very close attention to ram on my tablets and phone and will close programs, even on my ipad2, to ensure fast performance. Both Android and iOS claim to monitor and control ram as needed, but I prefer to control things manually.
