  • Apple's iPhone 5 Deemed "The Fastest Smartphone in the Land"


    A recently released report by PC Mag put the iPhone 5 against previous iPhone models, then against top Android models including Samsung’s Galaxy SIII released in June and Google’s Motorola Droid RAZR M released just last week. Guess what? Apple’s iPhone 5 was declared the world’s fastest smartphone.

    When compared to previous years’ iPhone models, the iPhone 5 obviously came out ahead. If that wasn’t enough, it should be noted that it often came out ahead by a factor of two. In browser tests, it scored nearly twice as fast as the iPhone 4S in Browsermark, where it was more than three times as fast as the iPhone 4, even with all phones upgraded to iOS 6 (which boasts improved browser speeds for all). The graphic tests resulted in the iPhone 5 scoring 2.2 times as high as the iPhone 4S and more than 8 times as fast as the iPhone 4. In general, PC Mag said the iPhone 5 was overall 2.5 times as fast as the iPhone 4S and over 4.2 times as fast as the iPhone 4.



    When Apple’s new iPhone was pitted against Android phones, PC Mag noted that last year’s iPhone 4S running iOS 6 on its dual core, 800MHz A5, “is about on par with leading Android 4.0 phones like the Samsung Galaxy S III and the Motorola Droid RAZR M, both of which are using the 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processors,” adding that “obviously, the difference is that Safari is a faster browser than the Android browser.” PC Mag continued by saying that the new iPhone 5 “takes things to the next level,” stating that “its Browsermark score is 80% higher, and it shows much quicker Sunspider times.”

    The iPhone 5 won overall by a narrower margin, but as noted, “the ‘memory’ and ‘stream’ scores, both of which test loading data in and out of RAM, come out much better on the Apple device.” In a graphics-specific processing test, the iPhone 5 beat the S III and RAZR M by more than a factor of three. The report concluded that “based on these benchmarks, the iPhone 5 lives up to the promise of being twice as fast as the iPhone 4S. I’s also, for now, the fastest handheld computer sold in the U.S.”

      Pre ordered my phone a few days ago, but I thought I'd go to the Apple Store and check out one of these for myself. I must say, congratulations apple! The iPhone 5 is an absolute gem. It feels great and certainly seems like the fastest smartphone on the market. To understand this, you need to actually hold the device. Stop looking at specs.

      Ohhhhh, that's right...I forgot Apple that actually pays attention to making its hardware work at its full potential and they make that hardware work smarter.

      "But it just looks like a stretched iPhone 4/4S"

      Ohhhh, that's right. Apple took the time to determine that typing on-the-go w/ one hand is still feasible with their new screen dimension. After all, this is still a phone...not a tablet.

      "But I don't mind typing w/ two hands..."

      Good luck avoiding crashing into people or having them crash into you while you have to stop in the middle of a sidewalk to type on your 5" screen!

      Stupid Fandroids!

      hahahhaa... I sooo love this guys post... hahahaha... +1000 for you dude!!!

      I just recieved my iphone 5 for verizon this morning and decided to unroot my galaxy s3 for verizon and put it back to stock and ive gotta say the iphone does come out ahead in a couple speed test for browsing and what not but they both handle graphics such as N.O.V.A. 3 and modern combat 3 fluidly and without lag.

      The s3 will probably still be my phone of choice for the time being because of the amount of things you can do straight from the get go, widgets, data while in call and other things. Right now the couple millisecond browser speed isnt to enticing.

      Now bring on the jailbreak and we'll talk

      One more side note, all of my phones have have otterbox defender cases and none of them feel cheap in the slightess.

      You do realize the drop test are completely irrelevant due to the fact that the phones don't fall in the exact same angle.

      Maybe it was cause he spelled "aize" instead of size? Plus that run on sentence was wtf

      Thazsar, I believe the "take some English classes maybe" quote was referring to the quote above, not the "In a hurry" quote.

      Unless your holding an actual tablet, no phone is truly a tablet. That crashing into people statement is irrelevant due to the fact that you can type with one or two or even 5 damn hands and people will still crash into you. So when your holding your iphone on landscape, do you type with one hand? Didn't think so.

      Stupid OS fanboys! notice how i didn't say iOS cause not everyone that uses an iphone say dumb things

      What you guys should is grow up and get a life, honestly!! Buy whatever phone you want regardless of what you or anyone else thinks. Is your money at the end of the day!! At the end of the day is all about preference and everyone will say apple is better or samsung is better or nokia or whatever. It is all preference!!!
