Hmm, SINA application for Japan? Looks more like it's for the Chinese market rather than the Japanese market.

lennard , 12 Sep 2011guys if your bet is on processor... i will bet on single co... moreSingle core has a higher power consumption, it also generates more heat than dual-cores. It's a simple principle, comparable with a car engine - the harder the engine has to work to attain the desired speed, the higher its fuel consumption will be (and the hotter it gets, too). A car with two engines can divide the work and therefore run at a more 'stable' and generally lower pace, using less fuel (battery).

Still, with todays' Android iteration, a single core processor generally gets a higher performance out of the OS though, simply because it is currently better optimized for single cores. However, it runs smoothly on dual-core as well, and will only become progressively faster on a dual-core as soon as it has been optimized for it.

In any case; Dual-core >> Single core.

Another thing: with 1240 mAH with a single core and these specs; you'd better have a spare battery in your pocket.

  • lennard

guys if your bet is on processor... i will bet on single core with clock of 2.5GHz rather than a 2.5GHz dual core... Why???? because dual core suck more battery life than a single core..

I need your opinion guys about it....

Now that is a nice fresh new Android design on a device. I like the look of it and the specs aren't that bad. I can live with single core. Good job Sharp.
