Honestly, why would you need a quad core phone anyway?

Idk Im tired of this single corephone. and all the unintended things you can do on a quadcore phone would be epic.

it would be in direct competition with the vita in some aspects. sony should just market the vita as a quadcore phone. they failed marketing on that product imo.

Smart phones don't need quad-core processors yet. Dual core is good enough since it's not like people are major editing videos, playing games like BF3, etc. on their phones.

Maybe in another year or two if mobile phones make the next "leap" in technology they will be justified. But right now it is mainly for bragging rights and to bump the price up slightly since people seem content on spending a ton of money on a phone.

Tablets have proven to be capable of handling professional-grade applications like image and video editing, so quad-core CPUs for tablets are more sensible. Phones, however, will not need more cores for a long time. Honestly, they shouldn't have even needed more than single-core CPUs, based on the performance of the iPhone 4 and the Windows Phone handsets that are well-optimized for single-core CPUs.
