Flashback: A look back at Intel smartphones and tablets

F

I’m not entirely sure but I’ve heard that x86 smartphones and tablets have been dropped due to app compatibility issues in Android.

My Motorola Razr has been a great device. Good performance and good screen.

sin, 3 hours agoThe problem is the lack of manufacturers who make x86 devices and smartphones such processors… moreIntel discontinued this brand, at the time it was targeting 2 watts per core, but now it uses about 6 watts so it can’t be used in phones.

Also Arm was on fire, from the cortex A72 to the A78 they had a massive increase in performance every generation, Intel couldn’t match that.

But now they have a chance, E core despite using more competitive power with the X shell chain, maybe in a few years may match Arm in power usage, around Moon Lake.

I remember phones with Intel atom, they were very competitive with the Snapdragon offerings at the time. Intel should have continued with their smartphone SOCs

unknown 4 hours agoYou must be crazy or insane to prefer X86 on a mobile platform.Arm processors are much better and superior in performance and battery life over mobile devices and have better optimization, are more efficient and more expensive.

It’s more compatibility reasons for wanting x86 hardware than x86 software compatibility reasons

Such processors will probably not see the light of day in a smartphone if there is no knowledge of modern smartphones, please tell me

One UI isn’t that bad. It works fine midway through my flight.

I still have an asus fhd6 note, also with intel soc…
I lost my first genie asus zenfone 5, though…

Shlik 8 hours agoI don’t quite understand the terminology of some ASUS, like CG…what? CG stands for Gar… moreMost of the Atom powered from the mid and low range and had better mileage than the A7 shell used at the time. Only the Crete was as good as Atom and you rarely get it with cheaper hardware.

My fonepad 7 is still only used for notes and writing

Sorry but the seal is the prop

PLYRZR0, 7 hours ago“Runned on an Atom Z2460 with 2 x86 CPU cores (2GHz, 32bit)” Actually, this… morethanks for the correction!

Intel soc power asus zenfone is much cheaper than snapdragon/mediatek phone at that time…but battery consumption was very bad. Average need to charge about 3.5 times for one day use.

It is very sad that Intel atom processors and windows phone & tablet fail

As I prefer an Intel x86 smartphone over an arm based smartphone
I also prefer Windows desktop OS to mobile OS

Smartphone with Windows 7 or 8 OS in the market
It would be amazing to add support for windows xp & vista it would be nice too

This is the 7 inch Dream gaming smartphone with x86 mobile with Upgradable CPU, massive 9000mAh GPU Replaceable Upgradeable Battery, SSD Storage, Built-in Fans, Active Cooling, Upgradable RAM, etc.

I blame Microsoft for making a portable version of Windows for arm processors that are incompatible with desktop software and thus not support them killing Intel atom processors and the Nokia brand as well as the mobile operating system

Then also add the severe insult of infection, making windows 8 and even worse Windows 10 forcefully update with ul os designed for phone that fell on phones and unwanted on desktop and permanently remove the deleted restore partition. So you can’t even go back to Windows 7

Plus the promise of lifetime Windows 10 support is being broken hence telling you that your old PCs don’t meet the system requirements for windows 11

Very disappointed 😫😖 Microsoft

I wish Intel processor will also come back to smartphones even if they are running Android x86 and need twice as much battery

As it is really sad, there are no opinions about x86 CPU for smartphones, at least Android supports x86 hardware emulators like Andy OS or can be installed on x86 CPU hardware and running the native Android x86 OS as a boot drive and when paired with a touch screen With built-in screen speakers works

on smartphones
Intel Atom processor despite definitely poor performance and terrible battery life
It is still distinct and has a unique role in the market for reasons of software and hardware compatibility

“Runned on an Atom Z2460 with 2 x86 CPU cores (2 GHz, 32 bit)”

In fact, the SoC is a single-core CPU with super-threading

I cd with Atom. It’s very slow on windows 10. Always problems with drivers.

I don’t quite understand the terminology of some ASUS, like CG…what? CG stands for Cheap Garbage for sure, that’s what phones were like at the time, even Atom-powered tablets like the Fonepad were rubbish too.

And before you ask, yes, I had one at the time… Intel was behind Qualcomm, and it’s no wonder Qualcomm still makes the best SoC today.
