|STORY ABOUT THE ODROID-C2|
Here is the comparisons to give you better understanding of ODROID-C2.
ODROID-C2 vs ODROID-C1 vs Raspberry Pi2
Both are Linux-friendly ARM® single-board computers for various applications and purposes.
The ODROID-C2 has many advantages over the Raspberry Pi2.
The processor is an S905 2GHz Quad-core from Amlogic with 2GByte DDR3 RAM, Gigabit-Ethernet and IR-receiver. The size of this computer is still only 85 x 56 mm with a weight of 40g, and offers silent operation, 2~5W average power usage, and instant portability, since it fits in a shirt pocket.
One powerful feature of the ODROID-C2 is an SD 3.01 standard compatible UHS-1 MicroSD card, as well as the faster eMMC module, can be ordered with the ODROID-C2, and arrives with the popular Ubuntu operating system already installed. Insert the MicroSD card into the slot, connect a monitor, a keyboard, a mouse, Ethernet and power cable, and that’s all you need to do to use the ODROID-C2! Browse the web, play games, run office programs, edit photos, develop software, and watch videos right away.
The ODROID-C2 also has a 40+7pin GPIO header to make a physical interface between the board and the outside world. The 40+7pin interface headers include PWM, I2C, I2S, UART, ADC and GPIO function.
The IR receiver and ADC features on the ODROID-C2 offer many options for building great DIY projects.
CPU and RAM performance comparison
We ran several different benchmarks to measure the computing power on the ODROID-C2. The same tests were performed on the Raspberry Pi 2, ODROID-C1, ODROID-U3 and ODROID-XU4 for easier comparison.The values of the test results were scaled uniformly for comparison purposes. The computing power of the C2 was measured to be ~2-3 times faster than the latest Raspberry Pi 2 thanks to the 2Ghz Cortex-A53 cores and much higher memory bandwidth. The high-performance 2GB DDR3 RAM is an additional advantage allowing most programs to run smoothly on the C2.

ODROID-C2 shows around 33,700pts while ODROID-C1+ shows around 21,200pts. So you can run Android OS more smoothly. Note that the XU4 shows around 51,000pts thanks to the much faster A15 cores and Mali-T628 MP6 GPU cores. But the ODROID-C2 has higher rate of the “Performance per Dollar” probably.
Storage I/O comparison The C2 can boot from a MicroSD card or an eMMC module. The MicroSD interface supports the higher performance UHS-1 mode as well. File access of a 512MB file (read/write) on two different storage options shows distinct performance differences. The eMMC 5.0 storage is ~7x faster than the MicroSD Class-10 card in read tests. The MicroSD UHS-1 card is ~2x faster than the MicroSD Class-10 card in read tests. The MicroSD UHS-1 card provides a great low-cost option for many applications!To obtain the results in the storage I/O comparison graph, type the following lines at a command prompt.

$ dd if=test.tmp of=/dev/null iflag=direct bs=8M count=64

But the rendering speed is not good due to the limited performance.4K video playback on the Android OS is quite stable and fast for 4K/HEVC playback on a real 4K display.
