So I went to the verizon store today with my Droid Charge. Had full 4G bars, and I thought my internet was flying. I go to the iphone 4s booth, turn off wifi, clear history/cache on both devices, and compare Dolphin HD browser vs Safari.
Iphone 4s was literally on par with every load time over 3g! I was amazed, thinking that of all the features the iphone was better at, at least I would win in webpage load speeds, but no. How can this happen? I ran speed tests, and it showed the charge getting about 3x the speed. What good is speed if it doesn't translate to real-world improvements? I am starting to respect Apple's decision to wait out on 4g for another generation until it doesn't destroy battery life.
