Android 2.2 vs iPhone 4: Browser performance

I’m going to spoil the surprise let you know straight up that the Nexus One is indeed faster than the iPhone 4 at loading web pages according to a quick comparison done by Engadget. The only time the iPhone 4 loaded faster was when the Flash 10.1 plugin was enabled on the Nexus One. Either way the difference bin speed between the two handsets is marginal at best and doesn’t affect the user experience at all IMO. Check out both video after the break:

With Flash:

Without Flash:


Arstechnica also posted two Javascript benchmarks clearly showing that Android 2.2 / Foryo’s new browser slaughters Safari on the iPhone 4. But as you can see in the videos above this isn’t really reflected in real world usage.
