So what is the difference between 8 and 4 cores? Maybe you have already known that thanks to multi-core processor the performance of the device increases.

Previously, when multi-core devices only began to appear, it was believed that the increased number of cores is just a marketing and that it is useless. In that times the operating programs could not correctly use even two cores of the processor. At the present moment, the vast majority of programs and applications are able to interact with a lot number of cores.

Multitasking is a good thing, in any case. We all want to run simultaneously a couple of applications such as navigation,  music, browser. But we don't want to accept any freezes, during all these actions. So, for such impatient users, developers increase the number of cores, thanks to which, we receive only positive emotions using the head unit.

All right, now we know how it works. The increased size of operative and internal memory - is a good thing. Can never have too much memory, right? What's new in Android 7?

New Android has a special tool that prevents connection of applications that in standby mode to the Internet. It saves your megabytes. Its name is a Data Saver. You find it in settings. This tool also allows you to add applications that are not limited to the Internet connection, even when Data Saver is enabled. However, the application that is currently in use is not restricted and works as usual.
