    ***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.
