10 of the best octa-core smartphones available now

0. phoneArena 17 Aug 2014, 19:30 posted on

While an octa-core processor doesn't necessarily make a smartphone better than handsets featuring quad-core CPUs, 8-core chipsets are becoming more and more popular...

Octa cores are useless anyway. The S4 Octa lags terribly! Snapdragon FTW!

you are right. even octa core cant handle touchwizz. they need more cores. but iphone btw doesnt lag with two cores.

Are you silly or what ? There are more transistors on the dual-core A7 than on some octo-cores, that explains why the A7 is more powerful than the Snapdragon 600, many Mediatek and Exynos processors...

so octa core thing is just gimmick then
(P.S. Im not silly. Im clever than you )

Octacores are useful

most of the above phones are using mediatek which is legendary slow... 8cores or 8 thousand cores, mediatek is really very slow... if you use mediatek powered set and qualcomm or exynos powered set side by side then you will clearly see how slow mediatek is

big.LITTLE is a big.LIE, as well as the HMP mumbo jumbo.

Bear in mind : both clusters aren't activiated simultaneously. It's an either-or case.
Benchmarks detected : big
Anything else : LITTLE

Doesn't matter what you say, they are still Octa core based awesome devices.

Now go home and cry and ask your dad why iPhone doesn't have Octa Core? hahaha

as long as ppl happy wit their device whats the point of having octa or hegza core phone ? I used galaxy s2 for 3 years and never complain about cores. I think you just trying to be funny but in reality your comment has no point.

Update your knowledge. Galaxy s5 does run all cores at the same time..it has the HMP "mumbo jumbo"..both clusters ARE activated aat the same time.

BS. Activating both clusters cause hiccups bound to cache coherency and bandwidth sharing.

Its programmed and balanced to function properly.

Its called software.

And most programmers don't even know how the CPU behaves under certain conditions. That's called reality.

Its called smart programming

Just like 4wd

Just like Apples 1gb Ram iphone with a 64bit cpu

Rotflmfao

Even the ios7 takes up 400mb of ram, leaving you with 500mb ram to take full function and control a 64bit cpu with 500mb of ram.

Nice way to brainwash innocents, but not the smart ones.

Who the hell on earth as a programmer would use a 1gb ram to utilize a 64bit cpu.

Surely Apple

Thats called iScum

Lmfao

Thats why Apple took cues from Arms instruction, and then modifies to their own.

If you believe Arm is mumbo jumbo, why the hell Apple buys Arm chips, if its BS…..

Apple doesn't buy any chips from ARM.

ARM doesn't even have chips in their product palette.

Educate yourself before posting crap.

That's called license fee, and it's something COMPLETELY DIFFERENT than buying something.

ok its called license fee, why apple is paying to ARM for a license if ARM is crappy as it sounds from your previous comments? why the greatest in your mind "apple" cant have their own instructions?
if programmer like you or programmers in your circle dont know how cpu behaves in certain conditions then it doesnt mean most programmers in the world also dont know... there are great programmers available in this world... for example, your beloved apple has great programmers who make the software run smoothly on their ancient hardware... you should take an example of your fruit

Isn't obvious big.LITTLE is supposed to be working individually? And how is a big lie? It's more or less similar to Tegra 3 design. HMP is putting all cores to use. How about you learn some of that 'mumbo jumbo' before placing worthless comments like this.

I really dont care all that much about the processor,as long as the UI runs smoothly. Just sayin'

Problem is, I have yet to see an Octa device that runs smoothly on a FHD screen.

The Snapdragon 600 has no such problem.

These gimmicky Octa devices should stay in the 720p territory where they belong.

You have very limited experience with smartphone devices.

RedMi Note is smooth with good gaming gpu. 27000 antutu isn't too shabby for a $150 5.5" IPS screen, 2GB ram device.

It's dual sim also add convenient that I like. Instead of carry Note 2 and Note 3.

One Xiaomi RedMi Note take good care of my communication and mobile gaming needs.

Then octa BS cores are certainly not for you.
Quad Core FTW!

Is the Exynos 5430 a 64 bit or 32 bit processor?
