    I'll probably post the in the Intercept forum as well, but here goes. I have the OV (Jerry's BACKside IHO), my wife has the Samsung Intercept (stock rooted, formerly bROM). On paper, her phone is much better than mine. In reality, mine out performs hers in EVERY respect, regardless of what ROM either phone is running. I know that my phone has a GPU and hers does not, but the difference is VERY noticeable with any task. The GPU should only impact 3D renderings, right? Even her webpages load slowly, and she gets quite a few FC's. My question is this, is my GPU the reason for the discrepancy (she just has to live with it) or should I keep trying to troubleshoot (maybe find the root of the issue)?

    No this phone is known to outdo that one. The GPu effects everything that renders onto your screen releving allot of the cpu demand. Same thing a video card does for your computer. So really the intercept will always be behind. I've known people that have had both and always swear by the v including people who write about both phones for a living.

    I learned a heck of a lot when I built my first gaming PC by myself, and what Ben says is true.

    Oh, I've built my share of PC's, starting with a P75, but I'm still getting my head around the similarities (and differences) between a traditional computer and an Android.

    Good to know, though, that her phone isn't having issues. It's just not as cool as mine! ;)
