CPU Comparisons - Low End SmartPhones

    Hi all..

    I'm currently using an hTC One V SmartPhone and whilst it works -Ok-, it generally gets itself bogged-down (CPU = 100%) in one of these processes:-

    "Search Applications Provider" (which is disabled - why does it even run!?)
    "HtC Sense"
    "Android System (probably something with the 'People' process)"


    ...and all sync. functions are disabled.

    I've gone through a stack of things to try and get around these problems (short of 'rooting' the phone)... but simple ol' Android just doesn't seem to work so flash on this hardware.

    Therefore, I'm looking to upgrade the phone.. However... it seems that quad-core CPU-based phones are physically large and I want to keep my phone to a small size like the One V (120.3 mm H x 59.7 mm W x 9.2 mm D)... so I'm likely to be stuck with dual-core CPUs...

    ..but will a dual-core CPU-based phone give me much of a change in the performance of the phone?

    As an example, my current phone has a CPU described as:-

    Single Core, 1GHz Qualcomm Scorpion/Snapdragon S2

    ...and a phone that might be a replacement has a CPU described as:-

    Dual Core, 1GHz Qualcomm/Snapdragon S4

    ...but would that be much of an upgrade? Am I likely to see any improvement in the operation of the phone and the applications?

    What about something with a faster dual core CPU (1.5GHz?) ...

    Would appreciate any thoughts...

    Can't say from personal experience, but a friend of mine went from some single core phone to a dual core Motorola Moto E and he says everything is so much faster and responsive.

    Might just be that the phone is still new so not many apps and stuff on it at any one time so..I can't say for sure.

    For better coverage I moved this thread to the sub-forum where device comparisons are discussed.

    Yes it would, because ultimately very little is clockspeed-dependent on Android. Otoh, multiple cores mean less competition for resources and thus a smoother experience. The dual-core device will "feel" quicker because the UI responds better even though the clock speeds are identical.
