Quake 2 Test: HTC Desire Vs. Samsung Galaxy S

Illustration for article titled Quake 2 Test: HTC Desire Vs. Samsung Galaxy S

Both run Android. Both have lightning-fast processors (the Galaxy S a Hummingbird/Power VR, the Desire a Snapdragon/Adreno). Both can play Quake 2. But which handles better?


See the side-by-side comparison below. I won't give too many clues away, but I've got to say that I'm pretty disappointed with the outcome. I'm like a proud parent who expected much greater things of her child—even if the initial tests suggested one day I'd be sobbing into my hanky, wishing I'd backed the other horse. Sorry, I'm so upset, I'm mixing up my metaphors.


Got a Motorola Droid? Then you'll be wanting to see how it plays Quake III, right? Right. [Android Central Forums via Android Central]

Hummingbird is pretty sweet.

Does anyone buy Android for gaming though? Just curious...

I guess a faster processor is good, no matter what. Hopefully you can remove their horribly skin and run stock Android.

And hopefully they'll update the phone with new versions of Android when they come out. They're bad at that.
