Nexus One Android 2.2 Vs iPhone 4 iOS 4: Browser Speed Comparison Test [Video]

by Brian on July 8, 2010

Engadget carried out tests between Nexus One on Android 2.2 (Froyo) and an iPhone 4, with iOS 4.0 to check the speed of loading Web pages. Once with Flash enabled on Android and once without.

With Flash enabled the both Nexus One and iPhone 4 on iOS 4 were at loading web pages in equal time. Without Flash, Android’s browser was able to take a slight advantage. Check out the Video after the break!

 

Even ArsTechnica carried out speed tests on the Nexus One and iPhone 4 to measure the JavaScript performance. Android froyo scored over three times better on V8 and almost two times faster on SunSpider. However, the javascript improvements haven’t made a noticeable difference in page load time.

Comparison of Google Android 2.2 and Apple iOS 4

All the major Android smartphones are running or will be running on Android 2.2 Froyo (Frozen Yogurt). Froyo supports lot new and exciting features like Flash 10.1 support, Internet Tethering and much more which otherwise not possible on iOS 4.0. We already posted tabular comparison between Android 2.2 and Apple iOS 4 before and in the exit poll carried out, Android 2.2 Froyo was emerged as a clear winner!

In terms of features, both OS seems to be giving tough competition to the other which makes it very difficult to say to which wins over the other.

    The test was done in England where both units were surfing at similar speeds. The fact remains, the author of the tests should show large web pages with out Flash content to see how fast both perform downloading similar amounts of data.

    If a site contains Flash, iPhone will skip downloading its content because it can't use that information, And Flash enabled sites contain considerable more data than non Flash. What the test shows is that the N1 can download a large amount of data while the iPhone can barely keep up with it ignoring what it cant replay.

    What the videos showed is that Froyo shows ALL the Internet content while iPhone didn't.

    LOL, did the authors notice that the N1 actually downloaded Flash items which the iPhone didn't. And flash content means considerable more data.

    Another detail they failed to state, is what type of connection they were using wifi or 3G. If its 3G, I doubt the iPhone would perform as fast as a N1 given the fact that ATT barely reaches 1Mbps while TMobile can easily surf at 5Mbps.

    To show a true speed comparison, they should choose large websites with no Flash content.

    Brian Mullok, you need to be more objective in your analysis.
