Top 5 Quad-Core processor phones in India
Quad-core has become the newest buzzword in the industry used (sometimes abused) to make people believe a phone’s speed. More cores will process more code simultaneously, but real world performance also depends upon how fast each of those cores can crunch. Also, the software needs to be optimized in order to make good use of all those heads. Read more here.
So, which are the top quad-core processor mobiles out there in the Indian mobile market? Here’s the list:
Samsung Galaxy S4
The current flagship Android phone from Samsung features two Quad-core chips, out of which one is a powerful 1.6GHz ARM Cortex A15 based, and the other is a power-saving 1.2GHz Cortex A7 based. The phone intelligently switches between the two depending upon the operating load. There are variants of the S4 that don’t come with this Exynos Octa-core setup, those rather have the Snapdragon 600 quad-core chips clocked at 1.9 GHz.
The Taiwanese’s company’s flagship comes with the Snapdragon 600, same as the variant of the Galaxy S4, but is clocked slightly lower at 1.7 GHz
Sony XPERIA Z
The water and dust resistant champion from the Japanese company runs on a 1.5 GHz quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro. This chip is based on the heralded Krait architecture.
Samsung Galaxy SIII
The last year’s flagship still is a relevant model today. The SIII is powered by Samsung’s own Exynos branded chip, which is basically a quad-core ARM Cortex A9 running at 1.4 GHz.
Micromax Canvas HD
A super value-for-money phone with a quad-core chip, the Canvas HD sports a Mediatek 1.2 GHz CPU based on ARM’s older Cortex A7 architecture.
