    What's the point of 1ghz and up processors?

    I can see the point if your gaming a lot on your tablet/phone but why get more than the 800mhz processor in the evo shift or G2 when everything is pretty much instant load. Am I missing something? Its like when ppl get Core i7 desktops for web surfing...

    While I understand this argument, I've never been a fan of it.

    I feel like, you improve things, because at some point, you may need that extra 200mhz for a certain reason and had you not gotten the improved hardware you wouldn't have the option of doing something different.

    It's like a person who only plays mine-sweeper. Maybe the reason they play mine-sweeper is because their computer can't play more advance games, but if the tech keeps improving and cheapening, that person can buy a more advanced computer and play Crysis.

    If we had followed the argument of "why faster?" we'd still be struggling to post on this forum.

    I overclocked my D1 to 900mhz and it runs pretty close to how fast my D2G runs but I do agree that a chip needs to have a dedicated GPU (D2G does) to play video/games.

    I'm just saying that innovation needs to happen more in battery life and UI versus just processor speed. Blackberry's QNX seems to be doing more with less. THey have the same chip as the Android tablets but it looks to be running a lot smoother.

    Yea I use to run mine at 800mhz till I noticed it took FOREVER to watch a video or anything at all for that matter on the web so now its over clocked at 1.2mhz and runs like a champ and the battery thing I noticed MAYBE an extra hour from 800-1.2 out of a day charge myself
    Task Killers? Nope

    This is what rooting is right here

    There are 2 reasons to OC. 1. To gain better performance from aging hardware such as the OG Droid. 2. Is...well...because we can! That's half the fun of rooting your phone! That's just my .02

    You also have to consider the more ram/memory we get, the more widgets we get. I'm all about the widgets.

    Now, although widgets aren't usually a big drain, they do update periodically and occassionally need to use CPU power. At the end of the day, multi-tasking in addition to that can cause your phone to lag at times when it just takes time for the CPU to power thru all the waiting commands. One of the reasons the IPhone runs "so buttery smooth" is you can't really overtax your phone like that. Android is kind of a victim of its own capability there.
