iPhone 5 screen twice as fast as Galaxy S4’s: Report

iphoneNEW DELHI: Apple fanboys have for long boasted that iPhones offer the best touchscreen experience, and a recent research proves them right. As per the latest report by game and app streaming company Agawi, the Apple smartphone still is the best smartphone when it comes to matters of touchscreen responsiveness.

Agawi’s new report states that the iPhone 5’s touchscreen responsiveness was found to be twice as fast as those of its rivals which constituted mostly Android devices. The results were based on an in-house testing process where cameras operating at 240 frames per second were used, and a custom piece of hardware called a Touchscope that measures app response time. The results showed that the iPhone 5, which was launched last year, was way ahead of the other devices, with the iPhone 4 and Samsung Galaxy S4 coming second and third respectively.

The report stated that in matters of responsiveness, the iPhone 5 showed a minimum app response time of 55 milliseconds, compared to 85 milliseconds on the iPhone 4 and 114 milliseconds on the Galaxy S4. There was, however, no mention of the reasons for the difference in responsiveness across the various devices.

The Android devices that were used in the test consisted of the Samsung Galaxy S4, the HTC One and the Moto X. The Nokia Lumia 928 was the only Windows Phone device used in the test.
