    Default Is Dual Core Enough?

    Is a dual core processor in a phone enough in the long run? Phones are coming out with quad cores now... Which is amazing and great but say in the GSIII would that phone and its accompanied processor last with the development of new apps and updated OS versions?

    its mostly just made for people to brag imho... phones run extremely well on the 1.5ghz Dual cores.. hell, even my Galaxy S 2 was smooth as butter and it was just a 1.2 ghz Dual core.

    It depends on the dual-core...

    The snapdragon S4 and Samsung Exynos 5 are plenty fast for what we do on phones, and they are both dual core.

    OK if dual core is enough for the future, what about storage?

    Is it worth buying a 32 GB storage vs 16 GB, In over two years of ownership my SD card has less the 1GB on it. That being said these new phones offer lots of new services, but cloud storage is now available, but are there reasons I do not know about which would lead me to get the 32 GB version?

    Do you want a phone that works just fine, or a phone you can brag about to strangers on the internet?

    Maybe (MAYBE) apps. If you're a very heavy gamer you could take up a lot of storage with some of the newer games. Or if you take a lot of HD movies without the ability to offload them to a computer or something else.

    Exactly this. Also a lot of my storage goes towards music as well.

    for the everyday person, a dual core will be fine. I think we should invest in compressing apps rather then expanding.
