Question

Dual Core + 1 gig of RAM or Quad Core + 256 meg RAM?

Could anyone tell me which would be the better phone to buy.
I'm looking at these two specs over two different models of phone.
I know they're low.

Dual Core + 1 gig of RAM or Quad Core + 256 meg RAM?

Which one would you choose and why?
Thanks

Why hide the phone makes/models?

In reply to: Dual Core + 1 gig of RAM or Quad Core + 256 meg RAM?

If they arrive with a pre-loaded ROM, the specs may not mean as much vs the sluggishness of a particular carrier installed ROM (or even manufacturer ROM). YMMV.

Give us the makes/models so we can be more certain.

Would not buy on such a spec.

The current Android phones with 256MB RAM are usually 20 dollar models. Not very useful for some but the price.

Dual Core 1 Gig ram?

So a Dual Core processor with 1 Gig of ram would be better?.. Is that what you are saying?

I won't say.

I did write I won't buy on the given specs. I did comment that 256MB on an Android phone would not be very useful for most. But if the other phone is a piece of trash, then the awful phone would be better.
