No, I’m not gloating, but it’s worth pointing out that despite the Droid’s hardware superiority over the iPhone 3GS in certain respects, the trusty iPhone still loads web pages faster according to this Android Central shootout. And after all, when we’re throwing down with our smartphone brethren, isn’t that what really matters? Well, not really, but it’s a nice stat to have while the Droid users laugh at our 3MP cameras and lack of flash.
At least the Droid loads pages faster than the cheaper $100 Eris, so in that respect you get what you pay for. The video also makes the very good point that you can’t really go wrong with any of these phones, and for many users the cheaper (yet curvier and sexier) Eris, may actually be their ideal Android phone.
Over these next few days we’re going to see many more comparisons between the iPhone 3GS and these new Android entrants, and it’s going to be interesting to see how well the 3GS continues to stack up.
