    ***if you would like to rate or leave comments on the video, first click play and then click on the video screen again to open up the youtube page***

    These videos are not rigged in any way. I just got both of them together and started loading websites.

    First/original video: Iphone and Droid both on same wifi, and both have had the website loaded on the phone before.






    Part 2: Iphone and Droid both on same wifi, loading a page that has NEVER been loaded on either one of the phones before.




    Part 3: Iphone and Droid both on 3G with full bars on each. Loading a page that HAS been loaded on both phones before (same website as in first video).






    Well, there you go. Enjoy.


    ***give videos time to process...might be a few minutes before you can view them***

    Is the dolphin browser faster than the default?

    If so, my Droid will smoke my coworker's iPhone 3gs. The dolphin browser has pinch/multitouch, so no more snotty iPhone owners saying "well, at least I can do this" as they pinch zoom a webpage.

    After watching the videos again, how does AT&T get away with claiming that they have the fastest 3G network?

    As far as I can tell Dolphin is just the same speed wise as the default (however I haven't tested it). But its definitely a more handy browser for sure.

    part 3 was brutal.....

    I can't believe it was that slow. That was bordering in Blackberry land. Very strange...

    I'm in Cali as well. Los Angeles actually. I live in the Miracle Mile area

    Where in Cali are you doing these tests from?

    Fresno. Keep in mind engadget is a very graphic heavy website, so it takes longer to load than the typical website.

    no doubt...I was shocked that Mobile Safari/iPhone performed like that.

    No, I just posted my own results. Not going to start an argument with anyone.


    I did own an iphone before my droid (3gs). One of the main reasons I got the Droid was because I was tired of how long it took me to load webpages. I can't count the number of times I had to go to "settings: general: reset network settings" to even get a page to eventually load.

    To be honest it didn't take that long all the time when I owned an iphone, but it did take longer than I was willing to deal with. Even though it didn't take that long all the time, it did it far too often.

    Even something as simple as ebay mobile or nfl.com mobile became a pain to load up.

    It's not so much a bad performance of the iphone as it is the network.

    woah that 3g test on engadget (#3) was ridiculously slow. Good job claiming fastest 3g network AT&T.
