The study, which measured load times on more than 45,000 pages, showed that Android loads pages a whopping 52% faster — average times were 2.1 seconds for Android versus 3.3 seconds for Apple.
The study had some other interesting points as well:
- Wi-Fi load times were only a half second faster than 3G load times on the iPhone.
- On the iPhone, pages that are optimised for mobile browsers load a lot faster than regular Web pages — 2.1 seconds versus 3.5 seconds. But on Android, there’s not much of a difference — 2.0 seconds versus 2.1 seconds.
