also, maybe it's from apps running in the background that make it a little slower. Since iphone does not support apps in the background.
Have my wifes 3GS against my Acer Liquid and browsing through www.arsenal.com and the liquid is consistently faster
The liquid shaded it on the BBC home page (mobile version) but by a margin thats negligible and when you browse the site they are both there or there abouts with each one finishing just before the other.
Liquid again quicker on the BBC desktop home page but not by much.
Seems, apart from engadget home page, much of a muchness.
Side by side you see how much you need pinch zoom on the iPhone. With smartfit on the android web pages are readable, on the iphone you are pinch zooming and panning left right and centre.
If you are nippy scrolling on the iphone you get a checker board pattern where as with the android you don't and if you flick scroll the 3GS feels a little treacly but its just the way they implemented their physics in the scroll. The android you can flick scroll and watch it slide past, with the iPhone its not going to flick very far.
