Sorry gang, but I don't get all this 'outdated' this and 'outdated' that spec this, spec that. Do you actually notice this in the 'real' world. Mondays tech, is Tuesdays recycling! Antutu scores on android tech are subjective. I had a note 3, when the so called 'superior' note 4 came out. I ported a note 4 rom and ran antutu. The difference was negligable!
I know we all want windows phone to succeed, but how many potential casual buyers would worry about processor etc. You then have to deal with heat dissipation. My 930 gets pretty warm, my 640xl ( yes a slower chip) stays cool. What bothers me with heat generation is, after years of working with circuit boards, you have the potential for board warpage, solder weakening etc leading to board failure. Admittedly, this would take time, but if you are loading the soc heavily, heat could be an issue.
Finally, this mornings tech saves money on R&D, allowing for less expensive devices. Doesn't mean they are noticeably slower, it reduces bragging rights, and that is all that matters to people these days. I'd rather save a few bucks, get a device that works, does what I want, and is adequately fast, and spend the savings on my family.
