I agree in general about low-spec processors in these smaller phones. I used an HTC First for a while, (for the size, display (720p), and design.) I didn't think the lesser processor would bother me, but eventually it was unbearable. They should have put an 8930AB or even 600-series chip in there.

However, it's not all about cores. I don't agree on that. In most situations, you're only using one or two of the primary cores anyway. Four is overkill for anything but the most demanding games and apps. For example, the 8960 (dual-core) in the Moto X seems to perform really well for most people.
