More cores won't make your apps move faster. Faster cores will make your apps move faster.
With each new generation of Qualcomm Snapdragon Processors, we aim to add new user experiences and boost over performance. We're able to achieve these significant performance boosts not by adding more cores, but by building better cores which work faster and use less power.
Having a processor with better, faster cores is especially important for apps. When we looked at the top 20 apps in China, 85% of them only used two CPU cores. The 15% percent that used more than two CPU cores barely used the 3rd or 4th at all. So again, more cores won't make these apps move faster. Faster cores will make these apps move faster.
We made the following video to explain these concepts.
