I was impressed by all the reports that this phone was snappy despite its specs.
After 2 years my GNEX was CRAWLING. I installed 4.3 and after TRIM was able to do its thing, my phone is super snappy again. Its so good that I lost the "itch" to upgrade.
I wonder whether all along, the speed of android was being held back by the lack of TRIM on their devices. I also installed the Greenify app to keep random applications from opening when they wanted and frankly, I'm not sure if I need a quad core anymore.
On a different note. On TWIT I heard Miriam from engadget say that all snapdragon processors had additional low power cores which could be used for language recognition. She suggested that always listening could be added via software to other devices. Any thoughts?
