Also, the 'core myth' is like the 'megahertz myth' - it was shown last year how many dual-core processors at higher clocks were slower than a single core like in the HTC Titan, and this year we are seeing dual cores faster than quad cores. Also, since Android is the least efficient mobile OS (proven, not opinion - the price of 'options'), and the apps almost universally use battery and processor wasting ads and geo-tracking to sell your info, it NEEDS the power …
You mean they went from one core 500 MHZ, to 4 cores 1.4 GHZ in 3 years?

As far as the myth goes, it has taken forever in the PC market to make efficient use of multiple CPU's and they are still not doing it.
