If you have been reading the reviews for the new Verizon 4G LTE devices, you have probably heard that the devices perform amazingly (even though they lack a dual-core processor). This is because the HTC Thunderbolt and the LG Revolution (not the Droid Charge) carry Qualcomm’s new generation Snapdragon processor.
In the video below, Qualcomm wants to explain why their single-core processor, combined with Verizon’s 4G LTE network, would bring you a better experience when compared to “the competition” (Motorola Atrix 4G on AT&T’s HSPA+ network). In a few words, this is because Qualcomm works on both the network and the processor, ensuring that the components are optimized to work with each other.
We would like to know what you guys think about this demonstration. It may seem like the comparison may be a bit unfair, since they are testing data speed. It is a given that Verizon’s 4G LTE data speeds are about the fastest (for now), so Snapdragon has an advantage from the get go (even if the processors were equal, the data speeds on a Verizon device should be faster anyways).
What do you guys say? Is this a fair demonstration? Do you prefer the new generation Snapdragon over its dual-core competitors? Check out the video and let us know what you think.
