Snapdragon vs. OMAP vs. Hummingbird (Video)

Previously we wrote about the technological differences between Qualcomm’s Snapdragon CPU (found on the EVO 4G, Nexus One, Desire, Droid Incredible, etc) and Samsung’s Hummingbird CPU (found on all Galaxy S smartphones). In this video, we add the Texas Instruments OMAP 3630 to the mix and put all three CPUs against each other to determine which “feels” fastest in everyday use. To achieve this, we see which device boots up fastest, which exhibits the smoothest internet performance, and so on. In the end, as you can see in the video, the Hummingbird and OMAP 3630 seems to beat out the Snapdragon in most cases, although our results aren’t conclusive enough to determine a true winner.

Have you used devices with all three CPUs? Which do you think is fastest in everyday use?
