This video was inspired by a post on WMPowerUser regarding whether or not Microsoft is ignoring dual core phones. I commented that people need to get over it. The dual core Snapdragon S4 Plus was a decrepit, old processor even when it was the only processor that was supported by Windows Phone 8. It really says something when your next generation low end phone outperforms your last generation flagship.
Of course, I got torn apart. I pointed out that a dual core 1.5 GHz dual core Snapdragon S4 Plus is far less powerful than a quad core 1.2 GHz Snapdragon 200. Of course, I probably would have had the same response, that it’s not all about cores and GHz. People aren’t very nice on the Internet.
It doesn’t change the facts though. Watch the Microsoft Lumia 535 outperform the Nokia Lumia 1020.
