Engadget.com: We can't get enough of Sony Ericsson's PlayStation Phone (also known as Zeus Z1), and we're guessing neither can you. We were just sent a new video of the device in action
With Infinity Blade just released, this looks, er, unimpressive... I'm still waiting on the official announcement, though.
So, my Droid X just did 37.2 FPS on that benchmark. So I am not impressed so far. Has anybody seen the linpack or Quandrant benchmarks on this phone yet?
Yeah I am really wondering about this Playstation phone.. What kind of games will it play? Because I have the HTC EVO with PSone emulator and I play tons of PSone games that work with no problems. http://www.youtube.com/watc...
@DARkNIKON, same with me and my HTC Desire, don't really see the fuss about this phone tbh.
24.4 on Neocore is extremely sad for something that claims to be a "gaming phone" It was rumored that the psphone would be releasing with a snapdragon processor. Im guessing this prototype is using the old gen snapdragon. Hopefully they decide to do the right thing by either using 2nd gen snapdragon with the Adreno 205 gpu, or something MUCH better. Quadrant Standard scores do not translate to real world performance. On 2.1, I used to get 2200+ with OCLF, while now, my phone is MUCH faster,but im only getting 1500-1800 with voodoo.
The fuss is because... it has real controls instead of a touch screen and it will possibly receive first party Playstation exclusives such as LBP and Motorstorm. But don't compare this phone to PSP-PSP2 it clearly is just a phone when it comes to hardware.
it is the pspgo with skype. Just dl killzone liberation on it for $10.
You use your PSP Go as your phone? LMFAO
I have used it a couple times to call my brother when he was in china and japan. I call from the psp/go to his pc and it is cheaper than cell's. VOIP is where it is all heading. The fact that it a psp shouldnt matter.
I'm laughin at the dude who only has 3 bubbles. Yeah. I do to, but you dont see me acting stupid. Thats like saying "Your using your laptop too watch HD movies?? What a loser! LOL" yeah. here's a lolipop Gum. suck it.
i think the benchmark software is not adecuate to the Z1 processor architecture... and is almos a Dummy... is a prototype
24fps? what happen with teh as powerful as ps3/360?
That's for PSP2. According to an insider on Neogaf this is just a Sony Ericsson phone which has the Playstation branding. It has no relation to the PSP2
yeah i think people should notice that this is NOT psp successors. probably just another variant of psp merged with a phone. but my spider sense said this is just a fake prototype to confuse competitor. im sure with 3ds glassless 3d and apple app store, psp must come up with a serious feature to beat those two.
Go cry some where else troll
PSPhone != PSP2. Noob
That is butt-ugly, there a PSP games that look better. The frame-rate is also sh!t.
F that. that looks like a PS1 games. *Currently waiting for PSP2*
Its a benchmark called Neocore for Android. When comparing Android phones many people look to Neocore, Quadrant, and Linpack benchmarks to evaluate the performance of a certain smartphone.
ps phone .. who cares!!! give me my psp2 game list...
Lol thats like running the phone in software mode.
this is rather unimpressive since my Galaxy S is getting 53.8 fps in this benchmark... just sad, that nobody really optimizes games for it, cause it has a really good graphic chip and it would beat even the Iphone 4 (just for the info the Iphone4 has the PowerVR SGX 535 and the Galaxy S has a PowerVR SGX 540 version) @gamingdroid yeah i know, it's pretty much pointless giving a phone great graphic chip if there aren't any "exclusive" games for it... but at least it helps playing all the video formats since it uses HW acceleration. Aaand i can brag with it ;)
The reason your Galaxy S don't have games optimized for it is because fragmentation is rearing it's ugly head. Android might be a dominant player, but as far as I know there isn't one dominant handset that developers can target which means developing either for a niche market or prepare the ardious task of meeting the masses via lowest common denominator or some version of it. Expect it to get worse!
i would say the galaxy S line as well as the desire line are dominat players i will agree that there is framentation but i would rather have that then one device with little choice that gets a new version once a year but...its not enough
Wow you couldn't be more wrong! Google brings out developer phones that basically set the benchmark for the OEMS to match and this allows developers to target this dev phone without having to worry too much about different hardware. The Nexus S is the latest one!
@silvacrest I'm not sure it is a good thing to have too many choices when those choices have a negative impact on your experience. However, I love choice and WP7 seems to balance openess yet controlled fine. Of course their issue is the young platform with a bad reputation from Windows MOBILE. @Klepto You are partially right, but that doesn't help the millions of others that own a non-Google official phone like the Nexus. Also, for the longest time I wanted a Nexus One, but the price was exorbitant. In August, they even stopped selling them and only way to get it is become a developer, but then they can only offer the T-Mobile version now. I'm on AT&T.
I'm going to purchase The Samsung Galaxy S Captivate. It's a very nice looking phone. As for the PS Phone, I have faith in Sony Ericsson will do a great job on develoopment for the phone.
not impressed. I am sure that the PSP2 will be way better though
im hoping that since its still a prototype it has not been optimised for gaming yet, hence the low score its a gaming phone, it should be setting new standards
Wow, color me disappointed. This looked like shit, and apparently it ran like shit too. If this thing is a gaming phone but doesn't have the best hardware then there really is no point.
If it's only going to be playing PSP 1 games, it doesn't need "The best hardware". This isn't the PSP 2......
Just downloaded this app and tested my Samsung Galaxy S 2.2 with lagfix. 55.8fps. lol..over double the speed of this new PS phone. Awesome phones these latest Samsung Android handsets (though 2.2 still having lag was a letdown, thank goodness for the Lag fix).
the new 2.2.1 version leaked like yesterday, it is very very fast, you don't even need lag fix, they also fixed many things, just read the changelog and comments :) you should try it out - http://forum.xda-developers... .
