No it isn't, android typically has more than two threads running at any given time while not in standby.

You're just saying its a gag because, by design, iOS will never make proper use of it

Hell, on iOS dual core barely has a use, most of the time the second core will be sitting idle unless an app is specially programmed to use it, which most don't.
