EVO 4G beats iPhone 4 in browser speedtest & more

I thought this video of EVO 4G vs iPhone 4 was interesting.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ULv-0xcciFE

The iPhone 3GS has had a pretty fast browser, it's always compared to every new phone that comes out, especially in browser speed tests. Because of this, I expected the iPhone 4 to have an even faster browser experience. The interesting thing here is jon rettinger (awesome phone reviewer and admitted iPhone user) finds that the EVO is FASTER than the iPhone 4. He starts doing speed tests at around 5:25. EVO wins when loading technobuffalo and a youtube channel. He tests both wifi and sprint/att networks. It's also shown that the EVO is generally faster overall.

Anyone surprised the iPhone was not a bit faster? Love my EVO!

The iPhone 4g clearly has a better looking screen tho. You just can't compare amoled, superamoled, or retina display to an LCD as far as colors and clarity go. I wish he would've put the same background on the EVO that he had on the iPhone4.

The conclusion of this comparison is that the EVO is victorious. I think that speaks volumes coming from a guy who uses apple and iPhone products all day long.

I'm not suprised, the evo constantly outpaces my iPad in page loading. Can't wait to see what the Evo can do with the froyo browser. My friend has it on her Nexus One and says it's a night and day difference.

Re: EVO 4G beats iPhone 4 in browser speedtest & more

First thing I noticed about this video...the Iphone just looks crappy next to the EVO. Looks cheap, old and plain. (sorry a little biased)


Now just saw the entire video...EVO ftw

Re: EVO 4G beats iPhone 4 in browser speedtest & more

I find it interesting that the Evo opens programs quicker, considering that there is a touch lag on the Evo.

Re: EVO 4G beats iPhone 4 in browser speedtest & more

@donatom3 you're right, forgot about froyo, and the iphone4 has the newly released ios4 update.
jon also did a speed test between the nexus1 with froyo (older build) against the iphone 4.... browser comparison starts at 5:45 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MjhF1xZQRQk

Re: EVO 4G beats iPhone 4 in browser speedtest & more

So iPhone does have a prettier screen, hands down, but who on an evo can say that aside from comparison, their huge-ass screen isn't beautiful? No one lol. The iPhone probably has better battery life, but it's a smaller screen, and a weaker processor. Smartphone users have learned to live with a charger as a force of habit. Oh, and another thing, the EVO can be held WITH BOTH HANDS. Lawlz

Re: EVO 4G beats iPhone 4 in browser speedtest & more

When comparing displays, keep in mind the different versions of EVO we have with the Novo and Epson displays... I have read mixed reviews on which is better but maybe the EVO in the video has the lesser of the 2...

I know my EVO screen looks much better than the one in the video...

Mine too. That animated screensaver they had just looks kiddie and undignified. He should have prepped the Evo better to match the iPhone as much as possible, icon-wise, background, etc.
