    the hummingbird and the A4 are the best.

    the Hummingbird kicks ass with its amazing graphics power, while the A4 has impressive CPU speed optimization (really fast bus speeds, and large L2 caches).

    the Snapdragon has some crappy ATI GPU emulation, and ignores L2 cahce completely.

    Hummingbird: 1GHz ARM Cortex A8 w/ 512KB L2 cache, coupled with PowerVR SGX 540
    A4 in iPhone 4: 800MHz ARM Cortex A8 w/ 512KB L2 cache, coupled with PowerVR SGX 535
    OMAP 3630: 1GHz ARM Cortex A8 w/ 256KB L2 cache, coupled with PowerVR SGX 530
    Snapdragon: 1GHz Scorpion ARMv7 CPU with no cache, coupled with Adreno GPU

    Out of the 4, Hummingbird is the fastest, followed closely by OMAP 3630, though the software they run on (Android 2.2) is not the fastest since it doesn't have GPU acceleration for quite a few essential elements. A4 is not as fast as OMAP 3630 or Hummingbird, but it makes up with an OS that is fully GPU-accelerated. Snapdragon is just plainly horrible no matter how you spin it.

    I always thought the snapdragon was better than that but turns out it's crappy.

    I thought the a4 was underclocked purposely to save battery
    At least in my opinion it was.

    I thought the snapdragon was pretty good... i guess not.
    if only the a4 was clocked at 1 ghz.

    1. A4/ Hummingbird
    2. Hummingbird/ A4
    (those two are nearly equal)
    3. Omap
    4. Snapdragon

    all in terms of raw power. However, that isn't the end all for how snappy/smooth/fast the device feels.

    A4 is 1GHz on the iPad, and 800MHz on the iPhone 4. It's not underclocked on the iPhone 4, it was just manufactured that way. The A4 on the iPad is much bigger than the A4 on the iPhone 4, and it also uses up more power.
