    Just thinking of over clocking from 1.2 to 1.5 or if it goes higher, for a bit more speed. How do you do this? And is it really worth it?

    I would think it would melt at that speed.

    Besides it goes more than fast enough.

    From what I've read most phones tend to act up at or after 1.4ghz. Restarts, FCs, overheating, etc. I wouldn't recommend it, as you probably wouldn't notice a real world difference. Then again I'm not one to tell what others should and shouldn't believe in.

    I wouldn't imagine you'll see much real world difference. Most likely you'll be over volting a bit which will reduce your battery performance.

    What I would do is keep your clock at 1.2ghz and drop your voltage a bit, you could improve battery life. Most stock voltages are a bit higher than they need to be during production release, so you're probably safe to reduce the cpu voltage while maintaining stability at 1.2ghz. Especially since the 4460 is rated for 1.5ghz.

    Sounds good, I will keep it as is, as this phone is really fast. Just knew it was actually 1.5ghrz, but underclocked at 1.2.
