iPhone 5 Beats Galaxy S III In Multiple Speed Tests
The iPhone 5 may be only two days old in the hands of most consumers, but it’s already being hotly discussed, debated, and analyzed. Put up against it’s clearest competitor, Apple arch-rival Samsung’s Galaxy S III, the iPhone 5 appears to excel in at least one area: speed.
Blogger Austin Evans put both phones to the test on Verizon’s 4G LTE network. And while he used Geekbench for a standard speed score, Evans also provided comparisons of the phone’s speed in browsers and for gaming. In each, the iPhone came out ahead.
Speeds will certainly vary by network, but a similar test on AT&T also showed the iPhone as the speedier device.
Of course, I’m sure Apple critics would argue that speed is not the only factor in smartphone supremacy, or even the most important. And the Galaxy S III still has the edge in screen size, resolution, and now, having Google Maps.
Which do you think is better? Let us know in the comments section below.
