    My mom has the stratosphere and I did a speed test side by side.

    Two Samsung phones.

    I was amazed and disappointed.

    Of course the lower number is the nexus. For a flagship android device verses a phone that has all this bloatware I think its unacceptable.

    You can't say its a Samsung problem because they are both Samsung.

    I hope Google gets this right asap.

    Doing this is very unstable. You can literally do multiple tests on the same phone and have very different results.

    I ran multiple tests. The stratosphere out ran the nexus in every one.

    You may be missing the overall point. 11 down is super fantastic and way better than you had before. There is almost nothing that can benefit from being faster than that. Just be happy, hope for improvements and move on :)

    That's not true. I had a razr and speed wise the nexus is slower. And I am hoping for an improvement.

    I can't brag about a phone that does worse on a speed test than a more inferior phones.

    Are you trying to compare the network, or the phones?

    that doesn't mean anything as other phones could be pulling 50mbps in same area.

    i've experienced same results comparing nexus vs thunderbolt. nexus won't register speeds higher then 12-15mbps in our house while thunderbolt constantly stays in 20-24mbps range.

    I'm basically trying to say I would think this test should be the other way around.

    While 11 down is great. Its not as good as 26 down.

    Two phones on the same network should be close to the same speeds at least.

    Exactly. Should the nexus be lower than that old tbolt?
