Speedy Go! is an application designed to improve the performance of Symbian phones using its accelerator. The application comes with a speed test utility, which can help to compare the performance of different devices. The test gives a measure of the overall speed of the phone.

Note: The Speedy Go! test was conducted on the N8 firstly with 10 widgets running on the homescreen (five on the first page, five on the second and none on the third page). In that test, the N8 scored 777. The above screenshot was taken with 4 widgets on the homescreen. Please also keep in mind that this is a prototype N8; the software is not finalised. There's still plenty of room for improvement.

In the video below, you can see how the N95 8GB and N97 handle the same test. The results are shown at around the 6-minute mark.
I'm sure many of you have read opinions from people who've used the N8. Now that those opinions have been substantiated with benchmarks, how do you feel about the N8?
