Re&ommended %ro&essor &o& s%eed is 5 $23 for Android ./.x or greater and 5. $23 for Android )ersion 4.x or greater. -amsung has got some ni&e set of mobies at that %ri&e range. ut &he& what ind of -,M does it su%%ort Mini -,M or Mi&ro -,M though it1s not a major issue be&ause you &an easiy get your -,M &ard &ut from the mobie stores (they ha)e -,M &ard %un&hers!. ut ee% the outer %art of the -,M so you &an easiy insert it in other de)i&es where norma -,M &ard is su%%orted. , reay doubt any dua &ore or uad &ore %ro&essors are a)aiabe at that %ri&e tag. ut note that you buy an Android de)i&e with a %ro&essor greater than Arm )7 ar&hite&ture for good o)era %erforman&e.
