Need for Speed (N8) vs Need for Speed (Nexus S)

Published by at

One of the more interesting comparison videos I’ve seen comes via Daily Mobile and Macintosh Morrison. It’s the Google Nexus Sand the Nokia N8, strapped together and playing Need for Speed Shift. The point? Well it’s a direct match up of the game to compare speed, control and fluidity. Who do you think will come out on top?

The video “proves” very little in terms of fine game control, comfort, accuracy and such like, but it does show one thing. The relative speeds of the game on both devices is pretty much identical (or at least down to the driver), the graphics are thrown around the screen in a similar style. If this was a strict test, I’m sure colours could be balanced for the actual view, but the point has been made.

Are the N8 and Symbian^3 suited to gaming as much as other platforms? I think the answer is yes.
