    How fast is your phone?

    I will post this in several different forums so that we can get results for different phones.

    Would you please do this Real World test and post your results? If you have multiple phones, please test each phone while connected with WiFi. Times are from when you tap the icon until the app fully opens and is usable.

    Real World Speed Test:
    1. With no apps running, time how long it takes to open your Facebook app.
    2. Close Facebook and time how long it takes to re-open Facebook.
    3. Close Facebook and time how long it takes to open Google Maps.
    4. Close Google Maps and time how long it takes to reopen Google Maps.

    Please cut and paste this Report Score Sheet in your reply:

    Real World Speed Test
    1. Time to open Facebook:
    2. Time to re-open Facebook:
    3. Time to open Google Maps:
    4. Time to re-open Google Maps:
    5. Phone make and model:
    6. If Overclocked, Speed:

    If you would like to see the effects of rebooting, do the test then reboot your phone and repeat the test.

    Basis for the test:
    3G or 4G connection speeds vary by location. WiFi should be similar for everyone. Linpack, Quadrant, and others test the CPU only or the graphics system only. This is a real life test of actually opening two very popular apps available on almost every phone. Time to open email, messages, etc. vary with the number of entries and so are not used.

    Thanks!

    Thank you to everyone for your help!

    We have gotten 49 responses with 4 tests each covering 16 different phones/speeds.

    The initial opening speeds compared to the stock Pre:
    • Droid X: 6.9x • iPhone: 3.9x • EVO: 2.9x • Epic: 5.0x • Torch: 6.3x as fast as the stock Pre.

    The initial opening speeds compared to the 1 GHz Overclocked Pre:
    • Droid X: 4.2x • iPhone: 2.4x • EVO: 1.8x • Epic: 3.1x • Torch: 3.9x as fast as the 1 GHz Pre.

    Comparing all four tests to the stock Pre:
    • Droid X: 6.9x • iPhone: 6.1x • EVO: 4.4x • Epic: 7.6x • Torch: 7.3x as fast as the stock Pre.

    Comparing all four tests to the 1 GHz Overclocked Pre:
    • Droid X: 4.1x • iPhone: 3.6x • EVO: 2.6x • Epic: 4.5x • Torch: 4.3x as fast as the 1 GHz Pre.

    Other notes
    • The 2009 BlackBerry Storm and Bold at ~600 MHz are nearly twice as fast as a 1GHz Pre.
    • These apps do not truly close on any of these phones as evidenced by the faster re-open times.
    • Other phones tested were 1.8 to 4.2 times the speed of the Palm Pre overclocked to 1 GHz.

    Is the pre / pixi slower mainly because they have less RAM then other devices or am I wrong?
    Yeahp looked it up, all those listed phones have 512MB of RAM pretty much and faster processors. So, that would explain it. I wonder what these results would look like w/ a compcache enabled pre.

    The Pre Plus has just as much RAM, 512MB.

    WebOS, while well-designed aesthetically, just isn't that optimized.

    Let's hope webOS 2.0 optimizes for speed!

    More like how slow and random, sometimes it opens apps in a reasonable amount of time, other times it is very slow, other times it freezes, cannot give a accurate speed test.
