Re: It is even slower than you say
Actually, I understood it fully. But maybe I could have made my point clearer.
Given the meagre 3-8% reduction in size, the disproportionate increase in CPU (and thus battery life) to obtain it will not mean any significant advantage for the consumer,
It might make the carriers happy but even then, 3% (even if *every* device used this new algo), will hardly dent their year-on-year data increases, and 8% probably only works on specific scenarios.
The consumer will hardly notice the benefit on local storage, given the "growth" of the phone's OS and application footprints will probably wipe out any benefits there.
So given the real world useage, chances are, all the user will see is a massive increase in battery drain, with no real benefit, in *either* local storage or improved data transmission performance.
Far better to improve security on the devices, as this will have immediate benefits to the consumer, given it's likely the smartphone will become a significant attack vector for hackers in the coming years. Preferably one with minimum CPU requirements.
