    Games, only place where performance really matters.. Reply

    Not true!

    I picked up my brother's old Galaxy S the other week, when his current smartphone died, and I got chest pains trying to organize his contacts etc over to it. It was terribly slow.

    So bring on the 'more performance' for me...

    Oh, and as it happens, I spent half an hour with an LG G3 today - that was nice!

    I have a Samsung Captivate (AT&T Galaxy S) that is surprisingly sprightly. I'm running the latest Cyanogenmod (CM11) using the latest Semaphore kernel (which then allows an OC to 1.2GHz). It is absolutely night and day compared to stock Gingerbread. I haven't used it as my daily driver in quite some time but I still enjoy messing with ROMs on it. Reply

    Saying that a KitKat Android build (OC'd at that) is much faster than a Gingerbread one is not anything new. What he said was very different.
    And I must concur. Having a Galaxy Nexus and a LG G2, no matter what ROM and Kernel I use (OC'd to 1.5GHz even), the LG G2 will be faster at everything I do on it, while rendering more pixels. Loading Chrome on the Galaxy Nexus takes a few seconds where it takes a fraction of a second on the G2. Same with any other app.

    Anything that helps bring more competition and therefore progress to the mobile industry is welcome news. I'd like to see *some* flagship Android device running Intel silicon. Reply

    Intel should get a ARM licence.
    This kind of competition those not progress the mobile industry it seeks to divide it.

    Intel did (does?) have an ARM license (Architecture). They sold off the subsidiary that used the license years ago though. If Wiki is to be trusted, Intel acquire the license via StrongARM from DEC, created XScale as a successor, then sold XScale to Marvell. Not sure if Intel still holds the ARM Architecture license (I would think so since Marvell has its own license for ARM.) Reply

    Not even all architecture licenses are the same depending on what parts and how you use the ISA Reply

    Will repeat again and again that Intel should work all the day and night shifts on Broadwell tech with MS to bring true Windows on cellphones and tablets. Otherwise such remote desktop apps like Teamviewer on Android phones and tablets backed by latest tens and somewhere in the world hundreds Mbps network speeds with ultralow latencies will make both behemoths a football teammates.

    I'm going to use the last sentence in this post as an example of a non sequitur next time someone asks me what that is. Reply

    Basketball of course - auto correction's fault. Now got it? Reply
