Smartphones have now become an indispensable part of our daily life. Nevertheless, people are becoming more attached to their smartphones to access Twitter, Facebook and Whats app.
With new and more powerful smartphones being released on a daily basis, the connected devices will soon replace traditional PCs. Even if you are looking for a smartphone costing under sub-10K, you're not out of luck.
With the arrival of low-end phones, the market for super affordable handsets has resulted in an increase in the demand for modern day connected devices.
We've been talking about low-end phones for quite some time. But today, we'll like to focus on how a smartphone packed with a multi-core processor can help you to execute your life better.
What do you mean by multi-core processors?
Multi-core processors are an integral part of how fast devices work and how efficient they are. For instance, a dual-core processor is a CPU with two separate cores, whereas a quad-core CPU has four separate CPUs with their own resources. If quad-core CPUs are just now beginning to become the standard - let's now welcome hexa or a CPU equivalent of six single core processors.
