Most folks at /Android on Reddit agree the A10 is still king even after these leaks, they realize that single core perf is still the holy grail for performance, UI thread is only still done on one core which is crucial to user experience. Most apps can't parallelize well either on all cores, but the most important factor is the about running UI operations on the main thread, which runs on one thread/core only always. No one here besides a very select few here (Tyrionlannister and few others) would understand this An app built using Android framework run all UI operations on the mainthread, these operations are critical to user experience. No matter how many cores you have you still need to update the UI on this one thread. A main thread that takes less time to do the work will result in a smoother experience. Even if the iPhone was a single core device, it doesn't need to mean it can't handle background operations well, the processor have scheduling which means they can work a little bit on each thread virtually multitasking. Some clueless folks here though don't get this at all and will say anything to affirm to themselves that Apple sucks at everything. Oh well, let them remain ignorant
