    Hate to break it to you guys, but the consumers you're all talking about could care less about core counts and 64-bit vs 32-bit. They don't even know what a core is. You really think the average consumer buys the Samsung Galaxy S5 because of that Snapdragon 800? No, they buy it because it's a Samsung. No matter how many times a company puts specs in their advertisements, the average consumer will never buy it because of that. If specs mattered to the average consumer, Apple would be bankrupt. Phones are status symbols.

    Many average consumers have some idea of core counts but are stupid enough to think more core count always means better performance.

    I hate to break it to you, but I'm not talking about the consumers you think I am. ;-)

    Many on WPC care, most on AC care, even mobile nations staff care. The number of people who understand how and under what circumstances core count contributes to performance improvements are few however. In what ways mobile cores differ from desktop cores and why they can't be thought of in the same way is a mystery to most.

    While such folks are a minority, they are the ones recommending devices to friends and family, so they are influential, and important to have in your pocket.

    Some companies design devices specifically for this group of people. They will happily include hardware that does little to nothing, as long as it makes devices look more appealing to this consumer segment. It's similar to Samsung faking benchmarks... anything to make a nice spec sheet,
    ... and most people on sites like this will eat it up.

    It's not that we're all stupid. It's just that not everyone can own a degree in microelectronics and software engineering, which marketing departments are happy to exploit.

    A lot of consumers listen to their techie friends and purchased based on recommendation too...

    not really,iphones still have some of the best cpus-gpus than even most androids despite being dual core
    the galaxy s4 is advertised as octa core,one of the reasons people even bought it thinking it would be fast or something(they were soo wrong) it wasnt even octa core,its like taping two cpus together literally
    samsung isnt a status symbol at all,people assume its a good brand and buy its products,ive had terrible experiences with samsung and refuse to buy any more samsung products
    apple makes better quality products they arent perfect but better than samsung even though overpriced,people buy an iphone for its quality,speed etc
    the logic more is better attracts consumers,nokia is doing something similiar with the 630(not a bad phone but its quad core performs equal to the 520s dual core apparently)

    Speaking of 64bit, Will the 1525 and Mclaren have 64bit?

    No. The 1525 is just a slightly upgraded 1520 with a slightly faster SoC and maybe a new design, and McLaren is canceled
