You're comparing apples to oranges. Just because some processor has more GHz and cores than a processor on some other architecture (which they really don't anyway if you're really paying attention) doesn't mean it's more powerful. I have a first generation bottom of the line Core 2 processor at home that will eat any of these Arm processors for lunch. High-end cell phone processors "might" (and that's a big might) be more powerful than average desktop processors from 10 years ago, but any $400 desktop you can buy from Best Buy today would smoke them. Are they terribly powerful for how small of a box they come in? Yes. But are they more powerful than the average desktop, no. If they were, companies like Oracle would be releasing enterprise software for them. And then you would be in a position to talk about how advanced the apps they run are. As it stands, a media player is not an advanced app.
