    He should have done a test first on dslreports.com/mspeed to show network speed first. Need to know the network speed of that particular location first as it will vary everywhere. If both have about same network tests, then it's a fair comparison of the actual phones.

    If you bother to read the rest of the review, he does just that. Look at part 3....

    "In a somewhat unscientific run of repeated DSLReports mobile speed tests, we found that the Pre averaged 634Kbps downstream, while the iPhone and G1 nabbed 552Kbps and 413Kbps, respectively. Not drastic differences -- and obviously only in a single location -- but certainly promising if you've got good Sprint coverage."

    Actually a good way to test it is to tether the phone to your laptop and go to speedtest.net but wait...

    Ah, it was in the review but not in the video link.
