If you have wondered what’s faster for web surfing, an and or device of the iPhone 4 Blaze Software has found the answer. According to the field tests that Blaze ran the Android device is 50% faster than the iPhone 4 when it comes to page loading.

The page load times were about a second apart and it wasn’t a few tests run either, the testing included 45,000 load tests. The test on Android was run on a Nexus S smartphone on Android 2.3 using chrome. The median load time was 2.144 seconds. The iPhone 4 on iOS 4.3 using Safari had media load time of 3.254 seconds.

The test used Fortune 1000 websites repeatedly using both WiFi and 3G connectivity. The Android device was faster on 84% of the sites the company tested on. The study said, “Android wasn’t just faster overall, but rather provided a faster browsing experience four times out of five.”

  1. These benchmarks are getting a bit stupid. Yes, each company needs to push their products to be as fast as possible, to be solid and as stabler as possible, etc. . . however, I doubt anyone is going to be looking for a device and think–this will save me one second on a page load versus this one. Besides that, we know iFans will by crapple no matter how bad it is. So, let’s just make Android the best OS in the world, bar none, and leave the rest in the dust!!!

  2. Was unaware of chrome for android ….

    Speed does matter for page loading, if it is slow I’ll jump between tabs so im not waiting for page to load. My I really do love my nexus one, only time pages don’t load almost instantly is if im not on wifi.
