Galaxy S: Smart Phones with Superior Speed

Jul 21, 2011

One of the most important parts of a smart phone is its processor, which is responsible for running all those cool applications lesser phones can’t handle. A good one handles a multitude of functions without sacrificing speed. New phones like the Samsung Galaxy S series offer powerful processors with never-before-seen speeds. Read on to learn why a fast processor matters.

Discover a More Efficient Design

A smartphone is a small computer. Some computers have a CPU for running applications, while other functions like display and sound are handled by separate chips. In modern smart phones all those functions are handled by one, dramatically improving speed.

Since smart phones have power-hungry features, like bright screens and intense graphics, saving power wherever possible is important. Today’s smart phone processors can automatically turn off idle features to conserve power.

Experience Intense Speed

Do you get frustrated when your phone stalls between programmes or while you’re scrolling across the page? Is something as simple as searching through photos or contacts taking longer than it should? The chips in most of the smart phones on the market today eliminate those issues with fast processor speeds.

They run at speeds of 500 or 600 MHz, with some of the latest phones boasting 1 GHz processors. Currently, the fastest available is the Samsung Galaxy S, with a 1 GHz Hummingbird processor. It can process 90 million triangles per second, compared to a Snapdragon processor which processes only 30 million per second. More triangles mean better image quality and much better frame rate—all in all, smoother, more realistic, more detailed graphics. Pair it with 8GB or 16GB of memory and its speed is unstoppable. With practically no waiting involved you can flip through menus, scroll through contacts, and surf the web with extreme ease.

Enjoy Blazing-Fast Multimedia

More and more smart phone makers offer a video and web experience similar to that of PCs. Because of that, the number of people that play mobile games on their smart phones has grown substantially.

For serious gaming enthusiasts, speed is everything. With a fast CPU like the one in the Samsung Galaxy S you’ll experience virtually no lag time, fast, and fluid motion along with ultra-realistic 3D graphics and intense colour. Uploading and downloading movies is also faster, and watching them is breathtaking thanks to incredibly smooth playback.

Multitask Like Never Before

A powerful processor on your phone can make a serious difference in everything you do. With a 1GHz processor like the one in the Samsung Galaxy S, speed is never an issue. Its Hummingbird processor is twice as fast as other leading Android processors. Open and transfer files, zoom in and out of pictures, write and send emails and fly through applications effortlessly, in mere seconds.
