    I found this on the Androidguys site which appears to show that the Galaxy S is a bit of a mover. The Galaxy is only beaten by a Nexus One running Froyo and the new Droid Shadow.

    I wonder if shadow is already running 2.2. Looks like galaxy should crush n1 after updating to 2.2.

    really?? shadow doesn't have snapdragon??? hmmm... maybe i misread about the shadow??? so it will have hummingbird also then?

    AH HA!!! i found the article!! its OMAP which is better than snapdragon!!! nice~ but i still like the galaxy s better and that shadow looks like it was ran with android 2.2?? if it is... than that shadow phone is slow because it will lose to nexus 1 also!!! because in the article it said...
    "Then again, the Shadow that was tested may have already been upgraded to Android 2.2, based on the suggestion that the PowerVR SGX 530 GPU in the OMAP 3630 supposedly found in the Shadow wouldn’t best the PowerVR SGX 540 GPU in the Galaxy S head-to-head on Android 2.1"

    i agree it looks like Verizon is going to push the shadow first since they had big success with Motorola Droid.... i never liked motorola before until i saw droid it's a pretty dang nice device but i still won't get it because i had too many issues with motorola phones but they do look like a solid phone though oh shadow also looks nice but i rather get the galaxy S still... but too bad verizon is not going to get it anytime soon..... sucks...

    BTW, this app doesn't test raw CPU power - it has a graphics test as well. And the Droid's CPU (can't remember the name) handles graphics better than Snapdragon does. So, you could imagine that the Shadow will be even better than that.

    i guess ur saying that there isnt really a GPU in any phone just a CPU that has some GPU capabilities built in?

    That's what it looks like to me but is that really how much extra processing power my sense UI is stealing from me?
    I can't wait to get rooted and unlock all that potential.
    Also with that much cpu going into the ui it must be using alot of battery.

    the desire, N1 and the incredible got almost similar results, except by a tiny margin difference with each other..
