I have a Dell laptop with a Core 2 Duo CPU and 4GB of physical RAM. A couple of days ago I was watching Shrek in 1080p on my laptop and well it was smooth if I give it a couple of seconds to settle down after moving the progress bar to some other place in the media player.
Whereas in my sonyericsson xperia neo V the video takes just a blink of an eye to load and then it cruises like a smoothie if I move it some place forward or backward on the progress bar.
Why is it so?
I have also obseved the same difference on a Core i5 HP laptop vs Sony Xperia U.
