What is the first thing most of us do after buying a new smartphone? Right, we try playing games!
A friend of mine bought a new Nokia N8 several days ago, and, as a big fan of racing games, he started to play Asphalt 6 HD almost immediately. He also tried to compare the game graphics of his Symbian^3-based N8 and my Android-based smartphone (I had to download and install it even though I don’t like racing games…).
The results were very… interesting, if I can say so. We didn’t make our own video since we found a similar one in Youtube. Here it is, have a look:
The video is only 480p, but despite that it’s clear that the graphics quality of the N8 is much worse, and the Symbian^3-based smartphone really loses to its Android-based competitor… It also seems the game is a bit slower on the Nokia smartphone.
We had the same result – the game looked much better on my old Android smartphone than on my friend’s new N8. But I guess, it’s not the fault of the phone, anyway, most likely the developers didn’t optimize the game when transferring it from Android to Symbian^3.
So I hope a new version of Asphalt 6 HD will be released by the developers, and this new version will be adequately optimized for Nokia’s Symbian^3-based smartphones. I guess all Nokia fans will be very glad to meet it.
