HTC Desire & Samsung Galaxy S square off in a Quake 2 death-match

HTC Desire & Samsung Galaxy S square off in a Quake 2 death-match

It's a death-match for the ages as we find the Snapdragon powered HTC Desire on one side against the new competitor found in the Hummingbird processor packing Samsung Galaxy S. Both handsets were pitted against one another in a classic Quake 2 death-match to see which handset is able to deal with the intensive graphics and game play that accompanies the experience. If you're into gaming and pure raw power, the Samsung Galaxy S and its 1GHz Hummingbird processor is clearly separating the gap between it and the all too familiar Snapdragon processor. Just by watching the video, you can see for yourself at how smooth the game runs on the Galaxy S as opposed to the Desire. For quite some time, we've seen the prowess that the Snapdragon processor managed to exude, but now it's considerably receding its powers in the presence of the Hummingbird processor. So if gaming is what's on the top of your list, then the Samsung Galaxy S is looking more likely to be a better candidate.

I can't wait for the epic 4g. If it has better battery life and if the video camera is silky smooth I might have to pass up on the HTC Evo
