Whenever we talk about buying a new smart phone, there is one constant question which we always ask; how many cores does the smartphone have?
Have you ever wondered what cores in a smartphone are? Why exactly do we need them? And how exactly does the number of cores, affect the performance of a smartphone?
So to give a clear and simple logic of it, core is like the brain of any smart phone. This basically alloys a phone to do multi-tasking without any hassle and maintaining a fluent speed too.
There are several types of core set available in today’s smart phone market such as dual-core, quad-core, hexa-core and octa-core where dual stands for 2 cores working together and same carries on others too. There used to be single core mobiles who ruled the market for a very long period but due to increasing need of human in every sector with busy lifestyle, multiple cores are actually required.
Addition of core actually enhances the user experience as user can do multi task on one go which is actually in demand but adding core like quad, hexa and octa does hold a few issues too. The top most issue is of adding cores are of battery life and it has been proven right that more core more battery usage. Unlike in personal computers where the main power has been taken from at then flowing electricity which is kind of unlimited whereas in smart phone a limited battery capacity which will be required to charge time to time.
ARM the company behind almost every processor claims that every new processor as compared to its predecessor is highly advanced but on the other hand it does drink out a lot of battery too. ARM is now thinking the way by which battery would also be maintained with higher core values.
