Read today that AnandTech did some benchmarks of the new Apple phone with IOS7. Headline says it was Benchmarked it against top competing Android phones like the Galaxy S4 and the iphone phone with is dual core whatever it is...blasted away from the Galaxy S4 as far as benchmarks go.
Did not read the article so don't know how iphone compared to Moto X if they even tested it. Not too surprised if they tested a system from an OEM because I have always thought that the OEMS don't' use the best coding techniques...they simply throw Ram and chips.. to the phone .to get better performance out of their "enhancements". Don't know if they tested a Nexus devices, but do the tech bloggers consider them completing devices?
If this is true what do you think this is saying about specs in a phone? Do you think that if Google incorporated the UI into the operating system we would see a faster response. In other words the UI is not simply the launcher app but it is actually a system app or in the Kernel. I bet this could be done. Let the UI be a system app or in the Kernel but let it be smart enough to recognize another launcher....like it does now and then simply point to that instead of the hard coded system app. If a system app can be coded this should be able to be done.
I don't know enough about this technology but I am thinking that they might need two kernel systems...one with the stock stuff included, an alternate that will get used if a user or OEM installs another UI.
Just thinking that's all...probably way off too LOL.
