    Current Phone Model:
    Droid Turbo
    Not exactly a good test, different browsers load different types of web pages faster. Also they are comparing 3 different wireless networks. There are a lot of factors that could impact the speed. All being said, so what even if it is a little faster. I love my Droid.

    That's one test. How about trying that test 10 times on 10 different sites and averaging it out?

    I believe at the end of the video he said "WIFI Browser test". I am still really disappointed how the iPhone schooled both of the Android phones. :(

    There is another thread about this video. Open the browser on your droid and start loading engadget.com as soon as the person in the video does. In the other thread, everyone noted that their droid loaded atleast 10 seconds faster than the droid in the video. I read engadget daily, but they are very biased towards the iphone.

    After that test, make sure to do it on two different websites. Pick any site you visit often, and let us know the results of that test. Don't forget to clear the cache though!

    yea good luck to you and trying to get anything to load on the iphone when using 3G.

    and for the video, I saw both the droid and the nexus running wifi.I dont know what the iphones symbol is for wifi but that might actually be a spot where it gets service (top of a building with a clear sky, touching a cell tower, etc.)

    so I say this experiment is completely useless because the wifi they are using could be far away and not have a good connection to the router. and the droid started syncing which would use the connection instead of trying to load the website

    all i got to say is DROID DOES (still)

    side note: how much longer for 2.1?? :)
