Pick the modern phone's single killer feature: 4G or dual-core?

Pick the modern phone's single killer feature: 4G or dual-core?
Can you imagine the perfect world? One where true geeks roam around in solar-powered cars and communicate with their devices only with their thought. Well, maybe yours is slightly different, but there is one thing we have in common – we're not living in it. In the current reality of things, a simple feature combination like an 4G dual-core phone seems extremely hard to achieve. The Motorola DROID BIONIC was on the right track, but plagued with problems it has been pushed and probably completely replaced with a new model.

At the same time, dual-core devices pack some impressive chips, bringing undeniably cream of the crop performance. Look at Samsung Galaxy S II's benchmark results if you don't want to take our word for it. But compare them with a comparatively modest device like the 4G LTE-enabled HTC ThunderBolt, the Samsung DROID Charge or the LG Revolution and you start hesitating. The latter reach whopping download speeds of above 5Mbps on a regular basis.

While in the near future, we expect to see the market flooded with dual-core 4G LTE devices, currently there is not a single one to cater to users who want the best of both worlds, so you have to make a choice. Which single feature would lure you into a purchase? Pick one killer feature and share your arguments in favor of it in the comments below.

Which feature is more important for you?

4G connectivity – The world is in the web and I need the fastest access.
Dual-core processor – 3G works fine for me. Plus, I want to be able to run the latest software on my phone.
