    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!

    1. Time to open Facebook: 2 seconds
    2. Time to re-open Facebook: less than 1 second
    3. Time to open Google Maps: 2-3 seconds
    4. Time to re-open Google Maps: less than 1 second
    5. Phone make and model: iphone4
    6. If Overclocked, Speed: n/a


    After reboot:
    Basically the same although opening Google maps was about a half-second faster.

    800 mhz

    FB open = 10 seconds
    FB re-open = 4 seconds

    about the same for google maps

    Forever...

    Thanks everyone for your speed tests!

    One thing that this is really proving is that overclocking makes a big difference even when opening websites.

    To me this test is the only kind that matters. Linpack and Quadrant shows internal results that may have no bearing on my real-world usage.

    I really appreciate getting the results on other phones. Thanks!

    Real World Speed Test
    1. Time to open Facebook: 6 seconds, fully loaded with all pics, etc., in the feed.

    2. Time to re-open Facebook: 9 seconds. seemed odd that it would be longer, so i did it twice. 9 again.

    3. Time to open Google Maps: 22 seconds. no wonder i use bfg instead. it even showed my location wrong, twenty minutes ago BFG was dead on. :/

    4. Time to re-open Google Maps: 14 seconds, with accurate location this time.

    5. Phone make and model: Sprint Palm Pre

    6. If Overclocked, Speed: 250/800 screenstate

    My signal was Evdo wavering between three and four bars. the timing was done with
    Online Stopwatch

    it just occured to me that the time with the facebook could have had a lot to do with signal strentgh, since i timed to fully loaded with all pics, etc., in the news feed as opposed to just the app being opened.

    thanks for taking the time to do all three speed. the OC'ing really does make an enormous difference.

    Real World Speed Test:
    (I'm calling usable state as the point when the app's menu tab appears at the top left of the screen)

    Device info:
    VZW Pre Plus, 1.4.5, UberKernel, Screenstate 600/1000 custom profile with 32MB compcache enabled
    Tests done via a five-bar 3G connection in my home
    Govnah was NOT running during these tests

    1. With no apps running, time how long it takes to open your Facebook app...4 seconds
    2. Close Facebook and time how long it takes to re-open Facebook...5 seconds
    3. Close Facebook and time how long it takes to open Google Maps...15 seconds
    4. Close Google Maps and time how long it takes to reopen Google Maps...10 seconds

    Device restarted...
    Time to reboot (measured from the time screen went completely dark prior to appearance of "palm" logo, to the appearance of the home screen)...2 minutes 18 seconds

    1. Time to open Facebook...7 seconds
    2. Time to re-open Facebook...4 seconds
    3. Time to open Google Maps...20 seconds
    4. Time to re-open Google Maps...Failed to launch on first close/re-open, claimed no Internet connection was present despite the fact I have five bars and a 3G logo. Tried again, and it took 17 seconds.

    How about with a Wireless-G home network?

    1. Time to open Facebook...4 seconds
    2. Time to re-open Facebook...4 seconds
    3. Time to open Google Maps...6 seconds
    4. Time to re-open Google Maps...5 seconds

    Impressions:
    Device reboot increases initial load times for apps, but they steadily decrease with each subsequent launch, provided there's no significant variations in network signal strength. Google Maps is much more sensitive to network signal strength than Facebook, as evidenced by the greatly reduced load times when accessing the Internet via WiFi. Load times using WiFi are equal to or better than those attained with a 3G connection.

    Wow! We are getting great data.

    Thanks, everyone!

    Keep it coming!

    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.
