We know that CPU speed ("MFLOPS") alone is not the only factor that determines the performance of an Android device.
Other factors include the I/O subsystem, memory speed and, of course, the software that drives this hardware.
But in the case of evaluating various phones in terms of TTS and ASR performance (e.g. minimal delay from the moment you say a word, until it is recognized, given the default built-in engine), can we say that MFLOPS is the dominant factor?
In other words, do you happen to know whether TTS & ASR involve mostly CPU cycles with relatively little memory and I/O transfers? Or is it the opposite?
