    HTC Desire (Snapdragon) vs Motorola Milestone (OMAP3430)

    Intro
    Here is my 3 part review on the HTC Desire vs Motorola Milestone.

    They may look a little low-quality at first because they may still be processing (and I have a crappy webcam to record with).

    HTC Desire specs:
    HTC Desire - Full phone specifications

    Motorola Milestone specs (note: CPU is not 600MHz, Motorola set it to 550MHz for the final product for an unknown reason):
    Motorola MILESTONE - Full phone specifications

    First part

    Second part

    Third part

    The OMAP 3430 has a GPU that pushes 18.5M triangles and about 662M pixels per second @ 550MHz

    The specs on the Snapdragon chipset list 22M triangles and 133M pixels per second.

    The Snapdragon has a very poor fill rate thus the choppiness in games.

    There is no 3D muscle in the Qulacomm.

    So essentially depending on what you are doing the Qualcomm/Snapdragon will be poorer in some aspects and better in others and vice versa.

    1GHZ is a marketing ploy.

    I think the extra 3.5m polygons (they aren't called triangles) per second is a pretty good show of muscle, not to mention the WiFi performance is also a winning factor.

    I had nothing but sloppy performance with the Milestone. I haven't had that issue with the Desire.

    exactly : ) which is why I said:

    "So essentially depending on what you are doing the Qualcomm/Snapdragon will be poorer in some aspects and better in others and vice versa."

    Gaming is not a strong point with devices using the Qualcomm. Not yet at least.

    Now THAT is a better more neutral stance. In my videos I took a neutral stance, for example: what I was experiencing, thinking and noticing at that time I mentioned for each device. I really miss the tactile keyboard but I just get frustrated with the sluggishness and crashes the Milestone has.

    If Motorola had the bootloader unlocked I wouldn't have bought the Desire.
