Keep your current Android smartphone, because the Linaro dev team has managed to boost performance of the stock Android ICS 4.0.4 by 100%!  Okay, these optimizations only apply to ARM devices, but chances are you have an ARM Android phone.

Keep your current Android smartphone, because the Linaro dev team has managed to boost performance of the stock Android ICS 4.0.4 by 100%!  Okay, these optimizations only apply to ARM devices, but chances are you have an ARM Android phone. 

Through various hardware and software optimization, the Linaro Android 4.0.4 achieved an average of 60 fps in all 0xBenchmarks (OpenGL Cube, OpenGL Blending, OpenGL Fog, and Flying Teapot), whereas, the stock AOSP 4.0.4 was getting around only 30 fps.  0xBenchmarks mainly deals with the CPU, so the impressive performance increase does not reflect the GPU.

Oh look, a bug!
