Samsung Galaxy S has the fastest GPU of all Android models
Which Android model has the fastest GPU? It has got to be the Nexus One, right? Nope, guess again. Well, if it's not the N-One, it's certainly the DROID. Double Nope. Oh, yeah, it has to be the HTC EVO 4G-after all, that handset walks on water. Triple Nope. The answer is the recently introduced Samsung Galaxy S. Thanks to the Hummingbird A8 chip, the Galaxy S can process 90 million triangles per second. To put that in perspective, the Nexus One can process 22 million triangles in that second while the DROID can handle 7 million. Comparing the number to a non-Android handset, the iPhone 3GS can work on 28 million triangles per second. This means that Samsung's new Android device has a 1GHz ARM Cortex-A8 chip that is 3 times faster than the 1GHz Snapdragon that powers the N-One and the EVO 4G. This gives the Galaxy S 36% of the video processing power of a PS3. Add to this the Super AMOLED screen on the Samsung device, which is built to be very efficient to save power and battery life, and the Galaxy S is on a...ahem...Galaxy of  its' own.

I was been one of the great fans of Samsung before, but software updates gave me a second thought of buying new Samsung phones . They do not update the software of their mobile phones! I had an I550W and U900 Soul. These phones never got a software upgrade until now. And another is the Omnia of my friend. The Omnia phone has a software upgrade on the website but we did try to update his phone and were so unfortunate not to succeed. I am not against with Samsung. I just want them to know that software update on each phones is a key factor in mobile industries, not only those huge hardware innovations!

Definitely more excited about this than anyother mobile phone that's been announced. But that's because only hardwarde is interesting me lately. The only software that's of iterest is bada and wp7s. Fuck evo and it's spotty 4g.

Its gpu maybe 3 times faster than the evos gpu on 3g but on 4g which is supposedly up to ten times as fast do the math phonearena not say the galaxy is inferior phone actually has better specs but inferior technology that's why the evo is a game changer

So the evo will receive data UP to 10 times faster. But 10x isn't always gauranteed. Hell 4G isn't promised everywhere. This is hardware speed more specifically graphics processing. Nothing to do with 4G.

Sure, you’re excited about the Samsung Galaxy S. Now. Stop. And imagine 6 months after you bought the Galaxy. You’re angry. You been lied to. The promised updates never come. There are real problems just using the phone. Forums like this fill with users like you, angry, dumping the phone, and comparing how little they can get for it on craigslist. $150? If you’re lucky. You’ll never buy a Samsung product again. Samsung has hired a PR firm to try to hide the real problems you and thousands of others are having with the phone. This is real. Do some research on the Samsung Behold II. This is Samsung’s business model. 1) Shiny new phone with promised updates 2) Wait… there’s no money in supporting a phone, only in selling new ones. 3) Refuse promised updates on under plainly false pretenses. 4) Go to step 1. 5) Profit. Please, do not buy this or any other Samsung phone. HTC and Apple make nice phones that they support. Tell your friends. I’m just a regular guy who fell for their lies. Don’t be me, 6 months from now, in a forum, writing this same message.

Behold 2 doesn't have the hardware for the upcoming updates, Either way, these new dual processor phones that will be coming out, as well as the rumors of the Samsung Galaxy S2, Galaxy S phones have been out for a while, And Gingerbread is what everybody is looking towards to, but it wont even be showcased till next month, 2.2 is not out on all phones but a rooted galaxy s phone is the fastest out there when it comes to benchmarks, check your app apple dudes, theres an app for that
