Hi guys,

Galaxy SII blew away my senses with its performance. It is too slick. Do Benchmark softwares like quadrant have any significance ? Mine Nexus S shows a very high score but its not even half slick as SII Which ROMs should I try, if I am looking for a slick Rom. Or the hardware difference is of a significant matter here ?

Go AOSP(CM7/MIUI) and then use a kernel that will allow you to over-clock the crap out of your NS. You might still not reach desired performance compare to a stock or even over-clocked S2.

You're trying to compare dual core to single core here, not to mention double the amount of RAM.

Ive used my mates SII, its a great phone to be sure, but honestly in everyday usage terms theres almost nothing between them. Theres some factors i prefer about the SII, but none of them are really enough to make me wish i had one over my NS.

That may change with the arrival of the Nexus prime. However, ultimately everything becomes obsolete, thats why i purchased the NS, hopefully to avoid some of that. However, i do think that Google really should have made the NS a dual core device, even if it delayed it slightly.

Google made a very good choice when they put the best single core processor available in the Nexus S.
There are barely any dual core socs that beat the samsung chip here.
And no, Tegra 2 does not beat it.
Both cores aren't even being used properly.
The Galaxy S II is barely any better than the Nexus S.
The Nexus Prime will probably rape both though.

The Nexus S is a phone, whereas the Galaxy S II is a mini-tablet.

This. Dual core is a waste in 2011. My ns4g is faster and more responsive than my friends dual core devices.(plus I have almost 300mb available ram)

I agree. 4" is the sweet spot especially considering screen sizeower consumption. I've had 3"-4.3" displays and the ns4g has spoiled me.

Guys,

I am "only" talking in terms of performance and I have noticed a huge difference.

As far I think it is the dual core that is making this kind of difference.

to be honest yes. there is a big difference. not only in speed but in 3d, video rendering+formts, in browsing... they are both due to the software (hardware acceleration tweaks touchwizz added) and the hardware too. never base yourself on forums for these things. ppl generally tend to defend their devices. lol and i do it too at times. just take a look in the nexus one forum, you'll find a couple of threads over there saying that from nexus 1 to nexus s was no upgrade at all.
the thing is ..you cant compare these 2 devices. the nexus s is already a nearly 10 month old device and the sII is still the creme de la creme!
