    Smartphones weren’t designed to take on fully featured desktop first-person-shooters but with an increasing amount of processing power and memory being packed into today’s handsets, games such as Quake are finding their way onto mobile devices.

    Two of the most powerful mobile processors on the market at the moment are the 1GHz ARM-based Snapdragon processor from Qualcomm and Samsung’s own 1GHz ARM-based Hummingbird processor. The devices are high-powered, yet require lower power meaning they are perfect for devices such as smartphones.

    You wouldn’t think there would be much difference between the two processors, that is until you see how well they perform when a port of Quake 2 is run on an HTC Desire (Snapdragon) and Samsung Galaxy S (Hummingbird), the difference is quite remarkable:

    You know those are two different games, right?

    Good for samsung, really. They haven't done anything interesting in the smartphone area in a long time. Maybe this will get LG to step up.

    Yet their galazy has random UI lag issues still. I just don't trust samsung and phones. I'm glad their chip is good (its pretty much the same chip as the iPad).

    But unless you are into 3D games (which if you are, iPhone is your better choice) the current crop of processors are good enough for just about everyone.

    Snapdragon and Hummingbird are actually more alike than they are different.

    Most likely it's a 3D acceleration thing anyway for the difference between the two as shown in the video.

    The concept of phone like these running WebOS sends (nice) shivers down my spine... Samsung used to have a Palm OS range of phones...

    BUT

    From the prespective of Samsung taking on WebOS, I suppose the HP angle pretty much kills that (too many areas of competition)?

    Yup. I couldnt find the two phones running the same game.
    To be far.... that iphone 4 looks like the brightness is turned all the way down.

    I was impressed with the galaxy S performance when pinned against iphone 4 on other videos. Last weekend, I stopped into my local ATT store as i was waiting for a haircut. I played with both the samsung galaxy s and iphone 4.
    Iphone 4 is a beautiful piece of hardware. ios seems boring to me... but very polished.
    Galaxy s looks similar to an iphone 3Gs... but still has that samsung build style ( instinct etc). In the performance dept... amazing( the screen is vibrant and displays deep colors). If i was the avg consumer... the iphone 4 would probably win me over.

    I believe this is the same processor that Apple uses in the iPad and iPhone 4. Apple just rebadged it the A4. I can't post links yet, but you can check it out on Wikipedia.

    my recollection is that Apple's ARM license allowed them to tweak and optimize their A4 variation for their OS -- something that M$ now wants to emulate

    That is correct, but they collaborated with samsung on the hummingbird.
