    Lightbulb The Huawei Ascend 2 vs. Huawei Ascend 1

    Hi everyone newbie to forum but not to cricket I fried my ascend 1 so I was about to buy the Ascend 1 again off the cricket website until I saw they have the Ascend 2. So my question is what is the difference between the two phone besides appearance?

    So does that mean it is "dual-core" like the Glory? The Glory is said to be "dual-core" but the processor is a single core processor. So, somebody said that the GPU could be why they call it "dual-core". Is the GPU considered a "core"?

    I don't believe so. The dual-core phones on the market have GPUs and in the specs the separation between the "dual-core" processor and the GPU is made clear.

    When we talk about dual cores we are talking about the CPU. There have been GPUs in many single core Android devices. I thought if they had a GPU and the proper CPU/Android OS, they could run flash. I know the Indulge can. Can the Optimus C. I never got to play with one.
    Please check the forum and post there before PMing me. I have over 674 unread PMs due to the fact that they are issues which should have been addressed here.

    If you need to buy something from (Ebay), please use this LINK every time and support the forum!

    Why do they call the Huawei Glory dual-core if it only has a single core processor?

    The Huawei Glory will have one PROCESSOR but the processor will indeed be a dual-core processor. Think of it as two processors stacked atop one another and miniaturized to fit inside your smartphone. What I wonder is how they will manage the heat produced by the phone while in heavy use, but I'm sure they've already worked out a solution for that.

    Where did you read this? I haven't read anything about it being dual-core...
