The better efficiency of this display will increase battery life. Heck if they use IGZO in it, if not already, it would give much more battery saving.
and one more thing: most people, even me would give up a better performing phone for a one which is more comfortable to hold(right thickness and weight), because they don't care what processor they have or which architecture.
yeah but do agree, these days some phones are too thin & light, so much that they look fragile(iPhone 5)
