Blaze Report: Android Races Ahead of iPhone

A report by Blaze, the web performance specialist has revealed that when it comes to web browsing Android is way ahead than iPhone.







Performing tasks at a better rate than the iPhone and loading the pages almost 52 per cent faster than the iPhone has given Android the winning edge. Blaze used the Google Nexus S with Android 2.3 and Apple's iPhone 4 with IOS 4.3, over a Wi–Fi connection to keep 3G connections differences at bay.

The actual test meant loading the devices with over a 1,000 different websites. This was done so actual user experience was created. These websites were then clicked on over a period of days. Blaze, in the meanwhile, also developed certain apps to measure the exact time taken to open a certain webpage. The results showed that the time taken by Android to open a webpage was 2.144 seconds, compared to the Iphone's 3.254 seconds. The tests were narrowed down to only mobile webpages. Here too, albeit by a mere 3 per cent supremacy over iPhone, Android did manage an edge.

Blaze, intends to further these tests on tablets, too, wherein unlike the tailored content for mobiles; users will expect the view of a complete webpage.
