    Post Nexus & Droid 1 Speed Compared, Should I be conerned

    So I have always noticed that my wife's Droid 1 is usually 10 dbm or so better than my Galaxy Nexus. Tonight I did some speed test on 3G to see what each would say. Shockingly, the Droid 1 out performed my Nexus. I tried it a few times with similar results. Should I be concerned about this?Nexus & Droid 1 Speed Compared, Should I be conerned-screenshot_2012-02-04-21-51-06.pngNexus & Droid 1 Speed Compared, Should I be conerned-img_20120204_215118.jpg

    I'm assuming you don't have 4g in your area, if you do why the heck are you on 3g?!

    I wouldn't be too concerned about it, I mean there's a pretty significant difference in the ping as well.

    The 4G obviously blows it away, but I usually don't use my 4G unless I'm downloading something big because it eats my battery. I just wanted to make sure something wasn't wrong with my phone.

    Switched to 3G to get an idea of what to compare your test to, because they look pretty bad.

    On 3G with an -83dBm(3 bars) on my Nexus I'm getting 1219 kbps download 867 kbps upload.

    So it looks like your wife's droid is similar to my download but about half of my upload speed on 3G on my Nexus.

    My OG is seeing 1327 kbps download and 426 kbps upload, similar to your wife's OG.

    Just for reference if you get to test with 4G:

    Nexus on 4G: Download=10096 kbps Upload: 7590 kbps with -93dBm(3 bars).

    Lol ok just wondering. What I've seen with all 4g devices is slower 3g speeds. With the TB, Charge, and Razr recently. Ran 3 tests to compare to a D3 and DX2 (friends were bored as well). Turns out the 3g only phones got the faster download speeds, but I don't recall any of them being that big of a difference.

    edit: Do not take my findings as actual research.

    I added some more information. I ran another 3G test between the Nexus and Droid 1, the screenshots are attached.
    -93 Nexus
    -89 Droid 1

    I also attached a screenshot for the 4G test.
    -93 Nexus

    Seems odd that your 4G is so much better heh, I can't imagine your 3G radio is broken or anything, but I guess it's possible with that bad of an upload speed.

    Hrm, let me ask this, whats your data usage like? Is it possible you're getting throttled?

    If he were being throttled, the 4G would also be throttled but based on the last test it definitely isn't.
