iPhones score highest touch responsiveness, more than twice as responsive as Android and Windows Phone devices

0. phoneArena 01 Oct 2013, 05:00 posted on

Have you ever thought just how responsive to touch your device really is? This is after all a key factor in determining how fast it feels, and now researchers from Agawi came up with a benchmark test that measures response times down to the millisecond…

Nice, but most of the times we don't notice such things.

Touch responsiveness speed depends on both hardware and software. Display and display's controllers (hardware) + controller drivers (low level software).

Human Brain "can process" data received by the eyes between 150 and 300 ms.
All the phones listed are under 140 ms ....

How did you notice that ?????????

You do realise it was a lie right? People limes up for the sales sure, but there was not THAT many people. There were more people lining up and who had pre-ordered the 3gs/4 and yet they sold less of the 3gs/4 on the first day and even throughout the entire first quarter (

Their earnings report will prove honesty, or falsehood. In the mean time you should provide proof, when you make a profound statement like that, otherwise you simply sound like a hater dude.

Shipped = Sold in Apple's case because it is not just about Apple Stores but also about Phone Carriers like T-Mobile. They order devices from Apple which they have to actually buy. They then resell those devices. As soon as an iPhone leaves the factory it can be regarded as sold (I don't know how it works for Apple Store Shipments though but they were sold out on launch day anyway).

Well, I guess we were overdue for a benchmark test that iFanboys can smugly quote in order to feel better about themselves, while Android devices keep coming out which show no noticeable difference in response time from iPhones.

Like, seriously, if I touch an icon on my Droid Mini, the response time is immediate.

But whatevs. Go ahead, iFanboys, in future debates you can go ahead and screech "but my phone is fifty milliseconds faster when I touch it!!! So iOS is clearly the superior OS!!!"

And my response will be to smile and shake my head in pity as I walk away.

Apple users won't say this because they don't care. the iPhone is a quality, simple and stylish device that does the simple things it's designed to do: call, text, email and game. As long as it continues to do that at a high level Apple will continue to be successful. This site is nothing but Android users talking about how superior Android is from a statistical level. NEWS FLASH: APPLE USERS DON'T CARE. Keep high-fiving each other - do whatever it takes to make you feel better.

Nothing but? You're exaggerating.

I agree we have some pretty idiotic spec heads here, but we also have a lot of decent people on both sides of the debate-and a lot of iAssholes too.

Furthermore, you keep trying so hard to act like you don't care, when it's clear that others' negative opinion of the iPhone and iOS bothers you.

For the record, older iPhones most definitely lag. We saw it with the 3GS a couple of years ago, and now it's happened to the 4. And it'll happen to the 4S too.

I have the 4S and don't experience lag at all. The 4, maybe (not sure but would assume it does considering it's a year older), but not the 4S.

The only people that openly support Apple on this site are me, Myx, bucky and dark. To say theres parties on both sides is the biggest understatement. This site is 95% Android to 5% Apple from a commentating perspective. I just find it pathetic how badly Android users want to put Apple down. Name one Apple person that says anything bad about Android? Theres none. Apple is their choice and Android is yours - we respect that but don't understand why Android users don't do the same.

The fan bases for all OSs each have their fair share of idiotic, ignorant, and mindless people. It's just like sports.

Also, the iPhone 4S, in my experience, has a substantial amount of lag after the iOS 7 update, not just the 4. Probably due to the true multitasking, it just doesn't work with less than 1 GB of RAM.

That they do, but it's predominantly Android on this site.

Maybe you do more on your 4S than me, but mine seems to work quite well.

Your 4S must be magical then, because all I've heard from my friends with the 4S is that iOS 7 is laggy. I've worked with the 4S myself, and there are quite a few stutters during regular usage.

Like I said below, all fan bases have their fair share of ignorant people. You saying that Apple fans don't bash Android is completely false, Mxy is typically found bashing Motorola's Android products. There were also a few other people over the past few years who were notorious for insulting and putting down anyone who supported the little green robot, taco and gallito for example (I've had many arguments with them). And if we take the limits of your observation outside of PA to YouTube, there are HUGE numbers of Android and Apple fans in the comments raging at each other.

"...Android users talking about how superior Android is from a statistical level."

Doesn't every Apple event starts from statistics which actually shouldn't be important for product user? :D

Android is superior than iOS from practical level since you can do more with Android and since it is more flexible and you can more easily adapt it to your own personal needs:

If you think apple users don't care about specs, you may want to refer back to articles about the Iphone's GPU, 64 bit processor, or benchmark scores. You can even go old school and look at the ppi of the retina display from an article a few years back.

When data is positive to them, then they say that it is very important and so on. But when data is negative to them they pretend that they don't care. In other words - hypocrites. ;)

You sound like a broken record. Any device past it's prime will lag. The 4 is nearly 4 years old, so obviously it'll lag.
