Nexus S overclocked to 1.2GHz
Google's Nexus S handset is no slouch, especially running Android Gingerbread with its Ext4 file system. Ext4 is one of the things the lagfix for the Samsung Galaxy S brought, and improved significantly the read/write speed, which was the main bottleneck for the otherwise superb 1GHz Hummingbird chipset to be showing ho-hum results in Android benchmark apps out of the box.

The Nexus S doesn't have this problem, but that still didn't stop the crafty folks over at the XDA-Developers forum from pumping up the processing speed to 1.2GHz from the default one gigahertz. That is 20% improvement, and pictured below are some impressive benchmarks we saw in the thread that ensued, albeit with the core at 1.3GHz. Head over to the thread link in the source, if you want to follow the developments.

This benchmark is pretty useless - if the phone is zippy and foes through menus with ease, then you are good to go...

hahah maybe these speeds are just hobbies of others, they just want to have fun and make out the most of what they buy... but if that overclocking is for your need (you are not satisfied with the speed) then maybe i can slap the phone on your face. i cant imagine the difference between an overclocked and normal phone haha.... i can wait 2 millisecond of my life. the speed overclocking gives is not worth the strain given to the phone
