Phones With The Most Processing Power

Long gone are the days when a cell phone operated at a snail's pace. Smartphones are now like small computers, offering more memory and storage space than ever before. With advancements in mobile technology, the distance between computer processors and phone processors is also shrinking. In fact, 2012 has even been labeled the year of the quad-core processor by some industry experts.

The Core Difference

The difference will be especially noticeable when users are running demanding apps, such as 3D games. Games will run seamlessly, without lags. Users who frequently run multiple apps simultaneously on their phones will be able to quickly switch between these apps and load new apps in a short amount of time. Document viewing and editing will be that much easier, and anyone who uses their phone for business services will be delighted with 2012's powerful phones.

The advent of more powerful mobile processors means that more demanding app will continue to develop. Such has been the case with Apple, the company that tends to release a new processor with every version of the iPhone. Apple has continued to upgrade its iOS and some older devices, with less powerful processors, aren't capable of using all the features of newer iOS released. This is precisely the reason why only a select number of Android phones will receive updates when a new version of the operating system is available.

Powerful Phone Options

Apple's iPhone 4S doesn't use a quad-core chip, but the manufacturer has still squeezed two cores into the A5 processor of its flagship smartphone. Apple boasts that the powerful processor doesn't eat up battery life, a common problem with smartphones.

All of the quad-core Android phones will use Android 4.0, the newest release of the OS from Google. LG Optimus 4X, HTC ONE X and ZTE Era will all sport a quad-core Tegra 3 processor for smooth multitasking. Both LG and HTC are working with 1.5 GHz processors, while the ZTE Eta has a slightly slower 1.3 GHz processor. Samsung's Galaxy Nexus incorporates a 1.2 GHz processor that might look slower on paper, but is still lightning fast in person. Huawei hasn't seen as much success in the United States as other manufacturers, but the company has promised two quad-core phones in 2012. The phones use an ARM-based K3V2 processor with speeds of 1.5 GHz, the same as the latest offering from LG or HTC.
