    I’m not really surprised that these proccessors reached 3Ghz, amazed yes, surprised no, but battery power does need to come into consideration here and getting the balance between clocking speed and battery life is crucial in these smartphones, still god damn impressive though.

    Really… as stated above this was already proven to be a hoax by the creator of SetCPU. Not to mention did you see how laggy scrolling was at “3ghz” what a joke. This video should have been reviewed and immediately thrown out as trash.

    Show some benchmarks, not a stupid video that can be fakes. Well, I suppose benchmarks can be faked too. How about releasing instructions if you expect anyone to believe outrageous claims.

    ummmm yeah, not really possible with that chip. Also if it “were” I wouldn’t hold it as the phone would eventually explode.
