I suspect the A15 would need to kick in any time the screen came on or people would be crying about UI lag. I know I would.
I don't know about that, I think that quad A7's wouldn't have too I much trouble with screen transitions and the like, bring the big boys in just when something is computationally and graphically demanding like a high end game with a serious rendering engine like NFS Most Wanted/Shift, Real Racing 3 or MC3, now you want those 4 A15 cores to kick in and start screaming.
