is there really a need for phones with a quadcore a 2gb of ram i mean really, there phones the htc onex and the new lg have tegra2 quadcores in them. on a normal pc you dont need a quadcore to do more than a phone would even at 1.4ghz i think there clocked at thats still overkill for a phone no?

Don't need them, but my phone could use more horse power for some applications I run, no need to run them on the phone but why not.

I still have a dual core phone, but I'll be upgrading to a quad soon as I can run Ubuntu off it when docked, it'll be an amazing device.

yeah I wouldn't mind haveing a dual core in my Xperia PLAY because I would like to play a few more games with better FPS like GTA III, but I would also like a bit better processor and RAM because unused apps are always open even though FB may not be connected to the internet or even if I shut them they just re open, it only has 400MB at the moment (I think) so about 1GB would be good

Do we need quad core for mobile phones,probably not. Do we want Quad core on mobile devices, definitely yes. Quad cores will be better for HD screen , gaming , apps etc

but,after a 1.6ghz dual core i really dont think well see a difference, i mean yes we all want it but is it worth paying 600$ for a phone becuase it has 4cores? i dont know any phone app that uses 4 cores

do you mean tegra 3 because tegra 2 is a dual core
plus wont quad core phones drain battery? also why would you even need a quad core on your phone unless you try to use your phone as a server, 3d rendering or trying to play more than one game at once?
