The Apple iPhone has been the hot smartphone ticket for a couple of years but competitors are working hard to close the gap. The Samsung Focus is a Windows Phone 7 device that runs on the same AT&T network as the iPhone, and the Focus features a distinctive user interface in a sleek and visually pleasing package.
One of the primary uses of any smart phone is browsing the Internet, so comparisons of browsing speed can be helpful to isolate a possible factor in a purchase decision. To conduct this Internet browser speed test, we used the Wirefly Learn page for Windows Phones, a page that neither of the tested phones had ever visited. Also, both phones connected to the Internet using only AT&T Wireless' 3G network. The Samsung Focus uses Microsoft's Internet Explorer Mobile for its browser, while the Apple iPhone used Apple's Safari browser.
The result: The Samsung Focus was a clear winner, showing the complete page before the iPhone, but the iPhone seemed to complete loading all the page data a bit before the Focus finished. For a closer look at the test, click on the video on the right.
