All it'll do is confuse your customers and keep people from buying stuff since they end up keep waiting. If they did major updates every few years then every year, we'd see a huge upgrades. Maybe that sounds a bit arrogant and selfish, but it makes more sense on their side. Only reason we're seeing smartphones advance so fast is because so much competition and such a huge market since 9/10 people you'll walk up to is going to have a smartphone.

TL;DR: Annoying seeing something so much better than what you just bought since it makes you want to wait and you end up waiting forever until you pull the trigger from getting impatient.
Ideally, it shouldn't bother you. If you buy the S2 now, you have the S2, regardless of whether they release a new one in one year or two. If you want to upgrade in a year's time, that's your choice. If not, you just have to skip a generation, get a new one in two year's time, and "pretend" they haven't released something inbetween. It's there for people who want and CAN afford to upgrade. Noone really has any place complaining.

-Higher clocks didn't fix Android's relative clunkyness
-Dual-cores didn't fix Android's relative clunkyness
-Quad-cores won't fix Android's relative clunkyness

(Coming from an Atrix 4G user)

Hardware acceleration should bring the smoothness of Android up to parity with Windows Phone 7 and iOS. From what I gather, an update will bring about hardware acceleration.

The only issue with the atrix is motoblur. Stock android runs absolutely perfectly on my HTC Desire (1GHz single core), try rooting your atrix and loading cyanogen .

>Running stock Android with crap bloatware
>Expects it to run like his desktop PC

Time to root and flash that Atrix son... Get that quadrant score up! (I get 2,495 right now on my G2x, eats the Nexus One and iPhone 4, and I'm not even overclocked right now)

Anyone tech savvy enough that wants an Android phone with 1GHz+ single core has no reason to be running stock. My HD2 at 1.2GHz handled Gingerbread flawlessly, G2x just kills it now.

not happy, i was into getting the samsung note and now i have to live with the fact i'll be buying inferior hardware when all other mobile devices are getting quad cores while im stuck with dual core
post #66 of 132
you can't really develop for something that isn't out yet. the quad core smartphone will have its uses once its out and people have learned what to do with it.

I'm curious... how is it possible for a thin phone to have a quad-core 2GHz CPU? I'd expect even a slate with that CPU to get too hot?

Dear god of technology,

Less cores, more battery life...... that is all.

my guess is arcitechure. it also depends on how thick the screen is, how thick the shell is. There are a lot of factors that can be thinned down before in inside of the phone gets thinner.

i think its a case of we'll have to wait and see.

Fixed, I haven't seen any clunkyness since Android 1.6 on my 528Mhz, 192MB RAM HTC Dream, my mums Desire, my friends and aunts SGS1, my SGS2, etc. All lag free.

At least Motorola is innovating though! I'm yet to see anything that can properly load the dualie in my SGS2, but I'm sure if I had motoblur on it, it'd be loaded and laggy.

What node is the Oxynos chip on? If it's on 45nm and they move to 32nm, they could easily fit a quad core, the CPU doesn't get that hot on my SGS2, only the 3G and WiFi parts. (i.e. It only really warms up if I download)
