  • Benchmarks Show iOS 5 Beats Android at Rendering HTML5


    According to a report from AllThingsD, a cross-platforming gaming SDK, Spaceport.io, tested the speed of HTML5 rendering on iOS and Android – concluding that iOS is the faster platform in this particular case.

    Spaceport used their own benchmark, which they call the “PerfMark.” This benchmark counts the number of moving images on a screen at 30 frames per second, a rate that provides a near-native user experience. The demonstration showed that HTML5 games ran significantly faster on iOS 5 when compared to their Android counterparts - more specifically, the iPhone 4S scored 252 PerfMarks and the iPad 2 scored 327 PerfMarks. Some of the Android devices tested such as the Samsung Galaxy Nexus smartphone scored 147 PerfMarks and the Kindle Fire only scored 25 PerfMarks.

    When it comes to the tablet market, the iPad 2 beat every single Android device it was tested against. Spaceport founder Ben Savage said that “HTML5 is getting faster over time, as seen in the latest OS updates across Android and iOS. Although this is a welcome trend, there is still a long way to go.” At this point in time, many companies are jumping the bandwagon and implementing HTML5 where applicable. Game developers are hoping to create games that will run on a variety of platforms allowing them to target a larger market and thus have the potential to increase revenue.

    With the iPad 2 already trumping the tablet market, we can speculate that the upcoming next-generation iPad will continue to further the gap.

      well duuuuuh

      I want to hear the Android people's take on this. "Uh speed isn't everything.. We're still better"

      iPad 2 is a year old and KING of the market. And the only thing that will dethrone the KING is the arrival of the iPad 3/HD.

      Maybe by the release of the iPad 4, Android can compete with the iPad 2!

      I understand and fully support a range of opinions, and i'm glad you don't ban fans of other platforms on site. However, there should be a line drawn, and this guy (i use that term loose) already stepped over it.

      lol for real. If you dont like apple then why are you on a site that is modmy"i" not modmy"android" ... then everyone gets mad at people on this site about favoring iPhone calling us all "fan boys". So what if i am a fan of the products i purchase, obviously these people are android "fan boys" that have nothing better in life to do than go to apple forums and troll.. lol

      if you're a fan of apple products it doesn't make you a fanboy. a fanboy is someone that only loves apple products(or their product of choice), and thinks everything else sucks because it's not an apple product. I keep trying android phones in hopes they fixed the lag, the smoothness and the glitchyness but I haven't found one that has. In my opinion they're not as smooth and consistent ie. sometimes the screen bounces and sometimes it doesn't. iOS 5 has been horrible for me so far. even before I jailbroke, my phone would do glitchy things. I didn't like the size of the 4.5" Android screens because the phone felt clumsy and I couldn't text with one hand. Android Sucks but Apple is catching up. That could all change with the next iPhone or the next iOS. P.S Sprint is sooooo slow.

      i agree and disagree. Yes people that talk bad about products they have no hands on use with just because its not apple, its just plain ignorance (and i would imagine there the same way with other things in life as well). As far as iOS5 on my 4s it couldn't be faster IMHO. its so smooth and never glitches or hesitates on animation/scrolling.

      as far as andiod sucks but apple is catching up. Personally i think its android trying to catch up lol.. Apple simply doesn't just put every feature known to man that everyone wants just because. They listen and implement when its perfected, that way it runs smooth. Thats at least how i feel about it.

      I do not see what version of OS they used, and using a Kindle as a representative of Android tablet? Can this be any more biased?
      How about using a more powerful Android tablet instead of a cut down android tablet intended to be used more as a reader.

      What everyone forgets is that this is a 25 year old excuse for fanboys of apple.
      Apple makes good products, i will agree, but they are not given to us by g-d so stop idolizing.
      Since dawn of apple every fanboy screamed how apple os is better than windows, yet never wanted to admit that apple only develops for one hardware profile wich they control. Windows and now android has to run on a multitude of devices. it can not be a valid
      argument when using one phone that is running android with crappy performance to say android sux. If you take in account how well android does across multiple hardware... Well I'd say that's better performance.

      Actually Apple stop releasing new iOS for older gen iPhones after about 2 years after its introduction, basically when contracts up get a new phone. And every year the iOS has more and more glitches. My iPhone 4 have problem with proximity sensor issue after I upgraded to 5.0.1, my apps crashes more often with 5.0.1 than when it was 4.3.3...
      You do not need to get 4~6 new Android phones every year, nobody gets a new phone every 2~3 months.
