Nokia Lumia 800 and GART

Jan 16, 2012 at 7:51 AM

I know that Nokia Lumia 800 doesn't have gyroscope.

Does GART use gyroscope? Can I use it with a Nokia Lumia 800?

It works OK on my HTC Mozart, which has no gyro. It is a bit jittery, but still functional. You should get something similar on Lumia 800.

I used GART on a Nokia Lumia 800 and it works great :)

The Lumia 800 doesn't have a gyroscope, but GART still works fine. It can 'jump' around, but since I haven't run GART on a device with a gyro, there's no way I can be sure the performance is different. The Lumia 900 (which has a gyro) is due out at the end of March/early April 2012. Hopefully someone can do a GART comparison between the two devices.

I have used GART with and without gyro. There is a notable difference but even without gyro it's usable. I don't have a video comparing the two but it's very similar to this video comparing the iPhone 4 (with gyro) vs. the 3GS (without gyro):
