"Most of Android is built in Java,not c++."

Except performance-intensive stuff IS native-coded. And multimedia stuff tends to fall into that category: especially anything involving video. And even my S4 (also a quad at nearly 2GHz per along with a good mobile GPU chip) has difficulty doing 1080p H.264 video with subtitles (not starting with H.265). A 10% hit can mean the difference between a decent enough playback and one too herky-jerky to be satisfactory. And most consumers think opposite to you. "Screw security; I just wanna get stuff done!" Meaning you're outvoted.
