  • iPhone 3G S vs. iPhone 3G vs. Palm Pre Speed Test


    This just popped up in my feeds. CNet did some completely unscientific speed testing comparing the iPhone 3G S, the iPhone 3G, and the Palm Pre. While some of the tests are entirely based on signal strength its still fun to watch while waiting for some jailbreak and unlock action!

    The Power on Test
    • Winner - iPhone 3G S at 19.34 seconds!
    • Second - iPhone 3G at 48.18 seconds
    • Last - The Palm Pre turned on in a dismal 1 minute 46.35 seconds

    The Load a Webpage Test
    • Winner - Palm Pre at 23.11 seconds
    • Second - iPhone 3G S at 35.54 seconds
    • Last - iPhone 3G at, uh never. It was on edge

    The Take a Picture and Send it via Email Test
    • Winner - Palm Pre at 40.32 seconds
    • Second - iPhone 3G S at 54.03 seconds
    • The iPhone 3G wasn't test since it was on edge

    Of course there are many other things that speed would matter with that weren't tested but in CNet's unscientific competition the Palm won 2 out of three

      I'm gonna say wrong (w/o any real stats, but here's why) Have you ever heard of the A-DEV forums? It's a HUGE community for any and all WM devices. They've been around years before the iPhone and have been modding and hacking HTC phones for a long time. I do believe that the iPhone community will surpass them if it hasn't done so already, since I'm a former/current member of the xda-dev site but haven't cooked a ROM since the iPhone 2G came out.

      i must agree with all those who say iphone would have been better on sprints network. att sucks major now and i can truly say that after 7yrs of using ther network. only had them cuz they always have a bada*s selection of phones. i have the pre and its freaking awesome! i still love my iphone but i must say the pre makes navigating though apps/windows a beauty. btw i wouldnt be surprised that when att has there 4g running they'll add another 10buks to ur bill just like they did with the 3g...

      Either way, that 3GS is fast! Shame I'll never have one
      Why would you say that????

      Rumours? Apple have said that they aim to release a new model each year so there almost certainly will be one.
      I'm not that impressed with the Pre. Android might be another option but if you can wait until next June (nearer 8 than 6 months) there should be a new iPhone.
      The 3GS is a definite improvement over the 3G but you won't get the new toy feel that you would if you change 0 but IMHO it is still the best thing on the market at the moment. Who knows what next year will bring though?
