Samsung Intros 8-Core Exynos 5 Octa Processor
Actual performance increase
I understand the need for more cores if you are playing hi-res games, or using very demanding applications, however beyond that, I don't see a practical application.
If the processor is more expensive to produce, and is must faster specifically for games, you can count me out.
On a dual core 1.5 Ghz phone, I have never, EVER sat there and through - "Wow, android operating system, if only you could move faster". Everything is super snappy with a dual core 1.5 S4.
Maybe for games this will be great, but for anything else? Why even bother, go for a 1ghz or sub processor.
