HTC HD2 vs Google Nexus One Browser comparison Part 2

Brandon just posted a second video comparison of the HTC HD2 vs Google Nexus One his time using Skyfire on the HD2 instead of Opera Mobile 9.7 (watch the first video here). So this isn’t really an apple to apple comparison given that Skyfire uses server side rendering to speed up page loading. Even with this advantage SF is slightly faster in loading the page) the Nexus One is IMO the clear winner here (notice the slow page rendering of Skyfire..).

    Nice testing, thanks.

    It’s interesting that the Nexus managed to present partial pages ahead of the HD2, even though it was consistently slower at loading the complete page.

    It looks like the Nexus code may be optimizing getting something up fast, at the expense slower overall load time.

    As a user experience, I think I actually prefer the Nexus rendering, especially since it seems to lead to faster scrolling afterward.
