ARM ran a survey of the top 500 Android apps in the market and found that only 20% are pure Java, 30% are native x86, 42% require binary translation and 6% do not work at all on Intel's platform. To make matters worse the level of compatibility is falling. They also found that running an app in binary translation mode takes a huge performance hit."

However, a new report conducted by ARM disputes this.
