    Droid3 Speed Test Results?

    Droid3 one week old, I ran 2 tests on 8/4/11 and then 1 this morning and these are the results I have gotten (no wifi, no bluetooth, nothing running, over 3G)

    8/4/11 (1) - 557 kbps DL, 697 kbps UL, 125ms Ping
    8/4/11 (2) - 1110 kbps DL, 820 kbps UL, 125ms Ping
    8/9/11 - 727 kbps DL, 893 kbps UL, 118ms Ping

    Is this normal? On my D1 I was getting around the same, between 500-700 for both, so I would have thought this would be much faster. the 8/4/11 pings I did after using the D3 for 1 full day.

    Pretty much. 3G speed can vary from day to day, location to location, even time of day to time of day depending on tower saturation.

    Here's mine from 7/11 (I got my D3 on 7/9).

    Did I read that right that you were expecting a 3G phone to be much faster than another 3G phone in a speed test?

    Sorry. I was tired...

    You should get similar 3G speeds on all 3G devices on Verizon, however benckmarks and Linpack scores are where the D3 will outshine the others.

    While the data comes in over 3G pretty much the same, the ability of the phone to handle that data is greater....so even though speeds may be identical (D1 to D3) you should notice web pages display faster and things should have access to the data faster.

    Just doing some test on my D1 vs. my D3 on WiFi for speed test.....you can see the D3 handles the data coming in much better when the flow is much more capable (same WiFi connection for both phones)..

    D3 WiFi


    D1 WiFi


    The D3 is processing and moving the data stream through much faster. Better WiFi chipset is probable as well...but the ability for the "system" to handle the data flow is greater.

    That makes a lot more sense. Thank you Tcrews again!

    Very cool thanks for sharing that test. I wonder if there is any difference in the wireless chip between the phones or if the main bottleneck of the D1 is simply (lack of) processing power to handle the incoming data?

    I'm sorry Jeff. I reread what I wrote and it definitely came off with the wrong tone. I wasn't trying to be a smart-alec, I just wanted to clarify that those were the results you were expecting.

    Again my bad and thanks for the info tcrews.
