For the strength of the Pack is the Wolf, and the strength of the Wolf is the Pack.

I like to buy a new smartphone for using various Android applications, playing games, watching videos and of course making phone calls. I heard that the latest smart phones comes with different types of processors namely the single core processor, dual core processor, quad core processor and the octa core processor. I want to know what is the actual difference between them. Which is the best and what is the cost of each processor? Which one is just enough for me? I need better phone but don’t want to waste my money. So Experts, please throw some light into the matter.

Single core processor has only single core which has to handle all your running applications and process.
Dual core means like 2 processors in a single processor which helps you phone to run faster.
Quad core smartphone has 4 cores which means like 4 processors which helps you to run even faster than a dual core mobile phone.
Octa core the latest which has 8 cores and its the fastest of all processors. You can multitask or run many applications without hanging at a time.
