I personally wouldn't sweat benchmarks. I don't even plan on running any on mine, if it runs fast from my perspective as the user, I'll be happy

Ok Rah...Catch your Breath bro! I feel your pain...Like DT said, dont sweat the Bench Marks! However,

A: Hows the speed while just doing simple things, like going on the open Web and going on some sites?

B: Call Quality? Is it Clear, Loud? Any Dropped calls?

You do realize epic 4g on a faster network right? You do know att network is not as fast even if they frickin say it is. Loading webpages has nothing to do with dual core or single core, its the damn network speed. A snapdragon running at 1ghz will be plenty fast at loading webpages when you are on a sprint wimax network.

So relax you should have known att network doesn't have backhaul implemented yet. They never say its up and running they say its ready when combined with enhanced backhaul.

Lmaoooo....You said it...You, Me, and a football field full of Forum members as well. We'll all be saying never again to Samsung. But the truth is, my Fascinate running on vzw is just as good, if not better then a lot of stuff on the market...Yes 2.1 and all...LOL! I'm deff skipping the Atrix, I may peep the Thunderbolt when it drops...But I'm really yearning for some new Super Amoled plus goodness from Samsungs Galaxy S 2 line.

They are building a new factory for Amoled screens which should be open within the next few months & a new one in Texas mainly for apple but not open until next year I think. So hopefully by the Autumn everyone can get there hands on Amoled & maybe even super Amoled's...

These Atrix forums are great lol, that's why Android needs some control so people can get OS updates can't believe some phones don't have Froyo yet and Hell this phone should have had 2.3....but let me guess stupid Blur can't keep up with the updates so they working on making blur work with Gingerbread..

Samsung's screens are not that great. AMOLED Pen-Tile is crap for text and energy consumption is higher than LCD.

ok Mr droid genius.

what about gingerbread do you want? Most people complain about not having gingerbread but they do not even know what the different features are in gingerbread. The only real notable difference in gingerbread is the animation you get when you lock the screen, and NFC support which we cant even get on the Atrix because it has no NFC chip.


The update you want is 2.4 (ice cream). That will give android the enhanced dual core support which will make a huge difference. I'm sure motorola, HTC, and Samsung are all working on 2.4 for their devices.

Well gingerbread and froyo are significantly different in a lot more ways than that as you can see here: Differences Between Android 2.2 Froyo and Android 2.3 Gingerbread

Most of the manufacturers you listed are releasing their new phones with Gingerbread this year, not Icecream. Perhaps 2.4 will be pre-installed on phones coming out in 2012.

Not so much as what I want it just that why these phones getting updates at slow times, whats the hold up with carriers it one of the things I like about iOS it all comes out at once instead of carriers holding back for some reason

Actually one of the best differences is the hardware graphics acceleration of the OS so things seem smoother and more responsive.

For whatever it is worth.

The programs to test speed probably aren't designed to test dual cores :/

It took years to get dual core optimization and quad core optimization is moving at about the same pace in the desktop world.

So it will prob be a while before you really gett he most out of a dual core phone..

No, 2.2 uses two cores, but you have to understand how tasks are dispatched, and how threads are (or are not) managed. Two cores allow for concurrent processing, but if a process is only a single thread, it doesn't magically make it faster, it's effectively running on a single core.

multi-core CPUs are outstanding in multi-tasking environments (like aOS), so when people open up a single core phone and take a video running next to a dual core, opening a web browser and saying "see my single core phone X is just as fast", they clearly do _not_ get it.

I posted something over at XDA, I'll repost it here.

Rahstyles, until people write applications that take advantage of the duel core, you won't see major difference in performance between the Tegra and regular cpus.
