It's battle of the dual-cores and everyone is holding their breath. Who will come out on top - Tegra 2, Exynos, OMAP4 or Snapdragon? Both CPUs and their new GPUs were tested to see how new generation smartphones perform.
An extensive mobile shotout gathered five of the latest dual-core Android phones - Motorola Atrix 4G, LG Optimus 2X, LG Optimus 3D, Samsung I9100 Galaxy S II and the HTC Pyramid (a.k.a. Shooter). Those represent four different platforms - NVIDIA Tegra 2 (Atrix, 2X), OMAP4 (3D), Exynos (Galaxy S II) and Snapdragon (Pyramid).
The table below gives a breakdown of CPUs, GPUs, RAM, screen resolution and OS version.
AndroidAndMe.com ran some of the tests and gathered others from several sources. Note that the Motorola Atrix 4G and the HTC Pyramid are at a disadvantage since they have to update 30% more pixels and also the LG Optimus 3D, Samsung Galaxy S II and HTC Pyramid were running pre-production software.
Here are some of the benchmark results (some of the benchmark apps didn't run on some phones).
Even though the dual-core Snapdragon processor has a 20% clock speed advantage, it posted worse results than the Cortex A9 cores in the other chipsets. It's not quite clear at this point how much this is due to unfinished software and how much to the older Scorpion core design (which, aside from a die shrink, is the same as in the original Snapdragons).

theres a diff between the iOS not being able to support fash(as you say) and apple telling adobe where to go and deciding they dont want it on their devices due to security and it being old tech without some companies discontinuing tech as ...
The iPhone 4 processor was the same as the Hummingbird. The company that helped Samsung develop the hummingbird was purchased by Apple after the specs were laid down.
