    Or you could buy a Windows Phone that's faster than android quad core phone and it only has a single core processor.

    Judging by recently leaked benchmarks I doubt that much and is impossible to claim at this stage. Yes windows phone does require less specs but ics has taken a step in the right direction there. It's personal choice isn't it but I for on am glad Samsung and android are driving the industry forward.

    That's what I thought too - processor description sounds suspiciously like all the tricks that desktop processors use. As long as Sammy aren't bl**dy daft enough to (a) go for fixed battery and (b) use MicroSIM, then the GSIII might jump into #1 slot for my next phone.

    Define "faster" - i.e. are you talking benchmarks or that nebuluous "user perception"? WP7 is pretty good but, as "mark22" says in post #4, each successive version of Android is markedly better than the last wrt performance. Recently I was able to try a 3rd party ICS build on an old HTC Desire, and to be honest it was just as responsive as iPhone4S or Lumia800 (the latter being the WP7 phone I'd buy if I defect from Android).

    Remember WP7 reputedly doesn't do proper multitasking, instead it's suspend-n-resume. Given that, you can see why having multicore on Android (which does do multitasking) would be desireable - letting you run apps concurrently with no slowdown.

    Thats one of the biggest fanboy comments I've seen on hexus. Have you used a modern android phone (sure my old x10 was slow but that was 2 years old and running a dozen apps almost constantly)? My Galaxy note runs smooth and is only a dual core running 2.3.6. With ICS all things point to it being even better with GPU acceleration and the like.

    Heck - If we're being fan boy about it why not talk about Windows Phone's extremely limited screen resolutions? I love my 1280 x 800 screen.

    My Galaxy S II with Android 4.0 is as fast as iOS happily and in fact feels faster on app loading/switching.
