Re: why low CPU GHz

Do you not mean under clocked if it's been turned down - So why, Well just like a Pc heat is a factor the more effort a chip has to do the better heatsink you need including fans - So I'm sure tests were carried out and running the chip in said phone would have caused a severe overheating issue so for safety and tolerance reasons they get turned down - Now you can root and install an app and as you say overclock the chip to get more performance from the chip which is above recomended tolerances

Re: why low CPU GHz

dont you think this is a violation of feature prospect 

 

coz there are many people who will turn back after seeing 1.19 Ghz processor

 

is sony being so bad day by day

 

that to sell phone first show high specifications  on a chiptset which is not made  to handle it and then under the name of update it bring down

please take a note that just by rooting and intall overclocking app one can not over clock

Re: why low CPU GHz

Well that's just not true at all - A modified kernal is just that modified which makes the not so tech savy user able to overclock without having the ordeal of installing apps and adjusting features

Actually,there is no need for root.Simple high tech processor is enough.Just look at the Krait CPUs,they are able to reduce clock and even stop some cores.

Re: why low CPU GHz

You need root in order to run an app to overclock your CPU - See SetCPU or Quick CPU to name just two

Re: why low CPU GHz

Yes,but just check the CPUs (Krait).Sometimes,when not needed,some cores are just idle.
