Quad-core processors are proving that, the processing speed of a smartphone increases as you increase the number of cores, and this is the most recent advancement in cell phone processor technology. The applications that benefit from quad-core processing are gaming, imaging and video processing apps; and the processing here is much improved when compared to dual-cores in terms of multitasking and multi threaded application performance.

One of NVIDIA's Tegra series' quad core chips actually uses a supplementary core, thereby handling the tasks at a lower frequency, for functionalities like active standby mode, music playback, and video playback. The latest Android phones from Samsung implement quad core processors helpful in browsing the internet and multimedia entertainment.

Furthermore, compared to dual-core processor phones, quad-core processors grant prolonged battery life, as the processes are distributed across the multiple cores.

  • Samsung has tweaked the winning design from the S6, righted the wrongs of its previous flagships, and made a phone you don't want to put down. The Samsung Galaxy S7 is iterative perfection.


  • Stunning. Samsung has just raised the bar for every other Android device. Simply put, if you want to buy a new phone right now, this is the one to pick.


  • The Samsung Galaxy S6 was the best phone of 2015 and, although it’s still early days, the Galaxy S7 is a serious contender for best phone of 2016. Samsung has taken into account what its fans want, addressing the three main areas of concern: removable storage, waterproofing and battery life. It’s also upgraded the core hardware and photography gear, added an always-on display and some useful software. Right now the Galaxy S7 is simply unbeatable.


  • The gorgeous Galaxy S7 Edge makes the best Android phone that much better.


  • Pricing wasn’t particularly on the side of the Galaxy S6 edge last year, mainly because for a phone that matched the S6 on paper, its added $100 premium cost on top of the S6 didn’t seem justifiable. Not surprisingly, though, the S7 edge’s pricing follows the same strategy by being accompanied with an additional $100 cost over what most of the domestic carriers will be selling the S7 for.


  • Five stars to Samsung, as the brand iterates perfectly on an already award-winning smartphone, adding a brilliant camera and gorgeous design.


  • Google's Nexus 6P is easier to hold and easier on your wallet, compared to the Nexus 6 from a year ago. New features, like a fingerprint sensor, reversible USB-C port and a better camera, are the selling points for this all-metal Android phablet.


  • The bigger of this year's two Nexus handsets seems like a dream on paper, with premium build quality, top-tier specs and access to the latest software updates straight from Google. Most importantly, Google finally has made a big phone that's comfortable to use with one hand. It's great for die-hard Android enthusiasts, but we're all spoiled for choice this year and the Nexus 6P doesn't do much to outshine the competition.


  • - Hell, it’s the best Android phone ever.
    - Android apps, generally speaking, aren't as good as iOS apps.
    - The 6P is slim and polished, more carefully created and assembled than any Nexus before.
    - It’s still among the best low-light smartphone cameras, but it’s not reinventing any wheels here.


  • With an uncommonly tough screen and similarly robust battery life, Motorola has created a seriously solid flagship phone.


  • Strong, fast and very long-lasting, the Moto X Force delivers something different for a flagship – and for the most part it works.


  • The Moto X Force is undeniably a force to reckon with among smartphones. This is a powerhouse of a smartphone with good looks, a superb screen, great performance and an excellent camera. Above all, it has a killer feature that's currently exclusive to it: the Moto X Force's display is truly shatterproof, and as a result, the phone can take a pounding like no other.


  • This year alone, we’ve seen several smartphones that redefined the value of what a smartphone should offer. From the super affordable ones priced below the $200 mark, such as the Moto G (2015) and Alcatel Onetouch Idol 3 4.7-inch, to the ‘low-cost premium’ phones in the $350 to $450 range, we really have to think about what the $379-priced Google Nexus 5X has to offer over the competition.Firstly, it’s a Nexus device, which means that it offers the purest interpretation of what an Android phone should be.


  • The unlocked Google Nexus 5X is an affordable plastic alternative to the larger Nexus 6P that trades its premium for better one-handed use.


  • You can operate Google's compact Nexus 5X with one hand – and it has a smaller price, too, compared with the metal Nexus 6P. Its fingerprint sensor and USB-C port take some getting used to, but it's ultimately a future-proofed phone everywhere but its memory.
