For people who live by their smartphones for whatever reasons, there are times when the average single core processor won’t be enough. Whether its for work, file share, socializing or gaming, the rate at which all the apps in the world are evolving demands for a faster smartphone. So here are the best upcoming dual core smartphones that you can choose from.
Top 5 Dual Core Android Smartphones
They are big, they are powerful and they are a must have for anyone who lives on the go. Take your pick from among the best of the best.
Motorola Droid Bionic 4G
- Android 2.3.4
- 4G LTE Networks
- 1 GB RAM, OMAP4 Dual-core 1GHz processor
- 1735 mAh battery
- 4.3 qHD 540×960 TFT LCD
- 16GB internal storage memory RAM, microSD
- 8-megapixel camera
The Droid may win the race based on its battery power. The problem with dual core processors is that they use up too much power and the slimmer your phone, the weaker your battery and the shorter time for which your phone remains usable. But the Droid offers 10h 40min of talk time on one full charging. As far as competition with the iPhone 5 is concerned, rest assured that the Droid’s 4G LTE Network is faster than what the iPhone can come up with, including the AT&Ts HSPA+.
HTC EVO 3D
- Android 2.3 Gingerbread
- 1.2 GHz dual-core ARM Cortex A9 processor
- 16GB or 32GB of storage, micro SD apart from 8GB of phone memory
- 1GB of RAM
- 4.3 inches SUPER AMOLED Plus touchscreen of 480 x 800-pixel resolution
- 1080p video recording at 30fps
- Standard battery, Li-Ion 1650 mAh
There are only two things that can bother you about the S II. The first one is the price. The original reports stated the price of the phone to be around $800, which later settled to be around $599-$699 for the 16GB version. The other problem is the low resolution. But it really isn’t that big of a deal as the colors the phone has are vibrant enough to nullify any pixellation. Also, the phone lacks a hardware camera button and you need to remove the battery when you want to take out the SIM card. Apart from that, the phone is regarded as the perfect dual core smartphone for anyone. If you can afford it, you will be a very happy Android user.
Motorola Photon 4G
- Android 2.3.3
- 1GHz NVIDIA Tegra 2 Dual-Core processor
- 48GB combined storage capability
- 1GB of RAM
- 540 x 960 pixel resolution and 4.3 qHD display
- 8 Megapixel camera
- Standard battery, Li-Po 1700 mAh
The Photon will sell mostly because of its international GSM capability (via Sprint), making it a very convenient option for people who travel countries a lot. The other plus point for the Photon is its superb web browsing capability that actually manages to make surfing on the phone a fun thing to do.
HTC EVO 3D
- 1.2GHz dual-core Qualcomm 8660 Snapdragon CPU
- 4.3-inch qHD 960 x 540-pixel Autostereoscopic 3D display
- dual rear 5-megapixel cameras with dedicated camera button, 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera
- HDMI 1.4
- Standard battery, Li-Ion 1730 mAh
- 1GB internal storage, 32GB microSD external storage
- 1GB RAM
The biggest problem with this phone is its battery life. This sort of dampens the joy of having a phone with features too many to count.
HTC Sensation 4G
- Android OS, v2.3
- 1.2 GHz dual-core processor, Adreno 220 GPU, Qualcomm MSM 8260 Snapdragon
- S-LCD capacitive 540 x 960 pixels, 4.3 qHD
- 1 GB storage, 8 GB internal with microSD extension up to 32GB
- 768 MB RAM
- Standard battery, Li-Ion 1520 mAh
- 8 Megapixel camera
The phone wins for its 1080p video recording and stereo audio recording capability. The resolution of the screen is quite good too. There have been few minor issues with the phone heating up during usage, but nothing too serious.
Those are the best in the business of dual core Android smartphones. There are other phones that are good too, but I found the above phones much better compared to them.
- Motorola Atrix 4G: The phone runs on Android version 2.2 Froyo (upgradable to 2.3.4 Gingerbread), the Tegra 2 AP20H chipset and comes with configurable camera settings.
- LG Thrill 4G: It comes with a 5 Megapixel camera and a 4 inch capacitive touchscreen.
- LG G2X: Slower than others due to its 526MB RAM, runs on Android 2.2 but will soon be ready for 2.3.
All phones are available in the market now. These smartphones are set to redefine what blazing fast on the mobile means. You would be joining many, if you intend to buy one of them and use your older smartphone as a second phone. All you need now is carrier information and you’re set to buy your very first dual core smartphone.
