That Vibrant does seem to have issues.
But who knows. Can we get more tests?
I just know the GPU is supposed to be 10x better.
Don't underestimate the snappiness of the Snapdragon though. It's good at what it does, even with a weak GPU.
Edit: Possibly touchwiz needs some kinks worked out?

What keyboard is that you got running on the Evo?
I played with a Vibrant at the TMobile Kiosk in the mall, and it didn't seem that slow as the one in the the video. I did notice that hitting the 4 Android buttons at the bottom was a bit trickier and the buttons didn't respond as fast as they do on the Evo. And while the screen on the Vibrant looked great, I still prefer the massiveness of the Evo.
If only the Evo had that faster GPU....oh well, there is always next year by which time there will hopefully be some kick **** 3d games out for Android.
Im guessing touchwiz. I have gone as far as doing a factory reset and same results. I saw a video of the evo vs the galaxy S and they had the same lag getting out of apps...it goes black for a second. I hope I got a lemon, because I returned my Evo and Evo's are sold out now.

I think its HTC optimizing everything on the EVO. I still think HTC has a leg up on Samsung both in there knowledge of how to optimize the platform to a particular device and HTC is better at getting out updated software to devices.

That Vibrant ran slower than my old Hero. Haha.
I dont know if something was wrong with it. But this is a great example of why people need to wait for a product to come out before you spend so much time drinking the sweat from its balls.
People fall in love with some benchmark test on a 3d game that doesnt matter and use that to claim one phone is better than the other. Let a phone get released and let people use it for a few weeks and see how it really performs. Has Samsung ever made a good phone?
Why do they deserve the respect at this point everyone game them with this phone?
Maybe its a bad model. maybe its touchwiz. Whatever it is its not good.
3d Graphic benchmark nerds can insult the snapdragon because of some benchmark test they dont even understand, but in real world phone use the EVO has been shown to be the fastest phone their is. Fast as in using, lauching apps, ect.

I don't know. I have seen some real life comparisons with the Snapdragon processor against the Samsung processor and the Droid X processor and the snapdragon won every time. I think that people are expecting these new processors to be netters because they are newer. But I don't think that it the case. For all of you EVO owners, just accept the fact that your processor is the best around so far.
