Wrong specs??


Oct 25, 2010, 9:53 AM
If I am not mistaken, isn't this phone using Hummingbird processor and Super AMOLED panel? Phonescoop specs mention Qualcomm processor..

It is Super AMOLED for sure. However, every website I've seen had this listed as the Snapdragon processor not Samsung's Hummingbird. Maybe they had extra Snapdragons lying around or maybe Windows Phone 7 doesn't play nice with Hummingbird? Or maybe every site is wrong.

The Talk Time is listed as 6.5 hours and Standby is 300 hours on Samsung's site (not 3 hours and 240 hours that PhoneScoop has listed currently, which Microsoft used to have on their site too).

Also, PhoneScoop says 6.9 GB of memory (even though it's 8 GB listed on Samsung site). Maybe they put actual usable storage remaining? But they have the iPhone as 32 GB (or 16 GB) even though that actual usable storage is around 29 GB (or around 14 GB).

What I want to kno...

either way, without a PowerVR graphics chip, or nVidia Tegra GPU, like the Zune HD has, its not going to have the power to compete with the iPhone 4, or more powerful Androids ☹️

It's the right specs

It does have Super AMOLED

However, it has Snapdragon processor because Microsoft forced all the OEM's to use that chip.

So Samsung had to take their own chip out and grudgingly buy the Snapdragon to put in their phone. It sucks because the Hummingbird is a more powerful processor with MUCH better GPU inside.

The Qualcomm GPU is fine. Much faster than Tegra 1 in Zune HD. Xbox Live games are very good. Need for Speed, Assassin's Creed and ilomilo look great.
