I was planning on buying a new Telechips pad. The thing is I've been offered a RockChip pad (Red LED with Camera) at an incredibly low price. So my question is: How much of an improvement is a RockChip over a VIA Pad?Considerations:Battery LifeResponsivenessVideo PlaybackThanks.

I'm confused. Planning to buy Telechip (a) get offered Rockchip (:) at low price. so you want to compare Rockchip to Via ©?Ok why don't you want Telechip to rockcihp?Whatever.Battery life. this depends on so many different things it hard to say. Different Via devices have different batteries but in general Via uses less power so sliight edge there.Responsiveness. Rockchip. You can get custom Rom, swapfile and overclock the Via and get it close or same as rockchip base.Video Playback. Rockchip. Has GPU for video decoding much smoother. Rockchip has this one by far.Telechip vs RockchipBattery life. Can't tell just by CPU type. size of battery in device, Rom optimization on device are much bigger factors than CPU. WI/fi, GPS settings make big difference also.Responsiveness normal usage the same. if multitasking Telechip has more cpu for background task.Video Playback Telechip has faster CPU and faster GPU many have 720P or higher video out on HDMI (not on built in screen)

As the benefits are marginal. I've decided to forget the RockChip and buy a Telechip.
