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…

Let these haters of iOS continue to do just that msa. Berzerk isn't one, but sniggly is notorious, yes both sides have their psychos, but PA is overrun with android ones. Mxy, and you should know this berzerk, is usually attacked by team android and he's notorious for standing his ground. He can be stubborn, but isn't Troll, that Dorothy guy, PhoneArenaUser, and a host of others. On to the 4-4s, those phones don't have the hardware to truly run iOS 7, so there's gonna be a little lag depending on how one uses the phone. That's why some experience it, while others don't. Hey upgrade lol, that's what we techies do.

Have you noticed I never respond to you, or post on your comments anymore, other than now? That's because after that utterly stupid, and ridiculously ignorant comment you left on iPhone launch day I've deemed you insignificant. You're no longer worth my time or effort, so I no longer waste those things on you. This will be my last response/post to you, as I said you're not worth the effort. Please go away, and ignore my posts. Thank you

I'm thinking about getting my mother a iPhone 5 on T-Mo. I like iOS 7 to the point where I want to use it, if it was on a larger screen that is.

As someone that supported Apple for 10 years, I won't commit to putting Apple down for certain quality apsects. I will, however, express my opinion that the business model is horrid. For a company that only holds 17% world marketshare and still be one of the richest companies in the world next to oil companies, means the company has found a way to spend as little as possible and charge far more than their competition.

I had enough of being told what I can or can't have. Or what I need or don't need on products I spent good money on. Frankly, I find this article another way to keep Apple in our face. I own an Android with Jellybean and I find that the response is immediate. I can get from point A to point B just as effectively and enjoy my device as it tailored to my personality and tastes. I just don't experience these detrimental issues with Android as the tabloids like to promote for Apple's favor. This whole "Apple does this better" stuff is getting annoying. I can name things Apple does better but can also name a hell of a lot of things Android does better. But, the most important bottom line for me as well as others that have switched to Android, is the fact that we have more control in what we do or need from our devices. I don't care how good the product may look or feel. It's useless if the company won't allow us to move about on our own merits, needs or wants.

This is why our generation spoke with our dollars in moving over to Windows PCs. Our money, our choice. The world spoke that Microsoft deserved to control 90% of the marketshare then just as Android deserves to control 80% today because they allow the consumer more control rather than the company controlling the consumer.

Enjoy your device bro, but ASAP grab yourself a 5S. You won't regret it, it's a major step up from the 4S. It also gets every feature, and the processing power is "BEAST" (as my 16 year old son says after every dunk lol).

I currently live in the UK on a Masters program and won't be back in the U.S. until December. I'll be riding out my 4S at least until then (no way can I spend £500 on an iPhone - or any phone for that matter). When I get back I'll evaluate all choices and see if I want to stay with Apple or explore other options. I'll most likely go with the 5S, but as I've stated, I'm open to all.

Yeah they don't care alright. Explain the benchmarks ifans keep throwing in everyones face. They did the exact same bs last year when the 5 was released. Ifans are KNOWN for bragging and putting irrelevant crap in people's face. And as far as the article. Most people can barely notice audio sync issues in videos. What makes you think they will notice a few ms more response time? Only a gamer "might" be able to notice this but everyones not a gamer.

Well, I'm happy to know that I'm "notorious." Except that if you actually ever paid any goddamn attention to my posts, many times I will post commentary that is pretty fair to iOS. For instance, when the articles came out detailing bugs on iOS 7, I was very vocal in my reminders that bugs happen with any OS update.

No, I don't like iOS or the iPhone, and I can't stand Apple, but to accuse me of blind fanboyism is the height of ignorance, darkjedii.

I wouldn't exactly call Sniggly an iOS hater. He is typically fair and mainly points out hypocrisy and flaws in judgement, and even though he usually does so with less tact and more vulgarity than some of us, that shouldn't label him "notorious". Not an iOS hater specifically, more of a zealous hater of ignorance.

Mxy is more of the "ignorance is bliss" type, which explains why Sniggly is on his case so much. Mxy constantly refers to old and should be forgotten mishaps by companies to put them down, even if the entire image of that company has changed since then (e.g Motorola), but when the same thing is turned on him and applied to Apple, he quickly dismisses it. Also, he blatantly calls the iPhone the best phone in the world without any indication that it is his own opinion, but rather fact, which is completely false; it is his own opinion, not fact, and should be noted accordingly.

I love Android and iOS 7, I love Windows 8 and Mac OS, and I will gladly be among the first to admit that each respective platform has their flaws, one flaw they all share though is the rather large amount of ignorance among their fan bases that cause a lot of unnecessary conflict. Saying one platform has more ignorant users over the other isn't exactly true or false, it's a grey area for the most part.

You really don't know Sniggly like I know Sniggly.

That guy (along with some other people) was so anti- Apple that it wasn't funny. I joined phonearena.com SOLELY because of the FACTUAL errors Sniggly et al was making at the time. The guy had no clue about business, operations, marketing, etc. at an "executive level." Didn't understand basic Econ 101 regarding marginal cost, cost structure, etc. To be fair, just about every android-lover, Apple hater didn't understand either. I remember when Moto released the Xoom, and I stated it was DOA (and I was correct) and Sniggly forced me to work backwards from BOM to consumer MSRP and I nailed the (then unannounced) MSRP within $20 usually what I knew about supply-chain, distribution costs, mark-up's, etc.

Back then, Sniggly was upset how Apple was hurting him (financially). You read these endless rants by Sniggly how Apple was the new evil empire. You read all these sad sob stories how Apple single him out (the truth was Apple didn't know and didn't care about him).

Sniggly reformed a bit and has toned down spreading factually incorrect information on Apple. Some of us have long memories. Part of my longevity on PA was that I was good at discrediting the Apple-haters that were clearly making stuff up as in lynching Apple or going on a witch-hunt. Some of the stuff these people made up was just ridiculous.

You are confused.

Mxy just states his opinions and opinions are not facts. As you know, opinions are like anuses, we all have one. Mxy is basically harmless.

In contrast, the Apple-haters love to make bogus crap up (these weren't opinions) about Apple. You should read some of the posts when I first joined -- these Apple-haters were using just about every way to discredit Apple. It was a tough job, but someone had to discredit these nut cases.

I think YOU are the one confused and didn't even read what I was responding too. msa1988 stated that not one Apple person on here says anything bad about Android when in fact several do. Not sure what anything I posted has to do with facts, I just simply stated Mxy talks smack about Android...which he DOES. I could care less about when you first joined. No one is asking you to discredit anyone so quit wasting your time.

You joined Phonearena just to argue with me? I'm honestly flattered.

I was a lot more rabid, I'll agree. I've since calmed down about ripping on Apple. I'm happy that you recognize that fact.

And yeah, I guess the Xoom was DOA. Kinda sucks, because it was a good first gen tablet.

You're a smart guy, Ardent. Biased as all hell (the mere fact that you defend Mxy, who often throws out falsehoods and outdated info like they're relevant fact, speaks volumes) but I respect your knowledge base.

I have, and do pay attention Snig. I still remember your very disrespectful post about the late Steve Jobs that got moderated. You may have calmed down, but I really haven't seen that. Sorry if I offended you, but since I don't actually know you, I can only go off of what you post. And what you post is notoriously anti apple/iOS/iPhone/iPhone user....

116. Sniggly (Posts: 7305; Member since: 05 Dec 2009)

Wait, which Steve Jobs post? Was that the one where I pointed out that after a couple years of being dead, Jobs is a rotting skeleton?

I don't owe any respect to a dead man, let alone a dead man who worked so hard to destroy his competitors based on his megalomaniacal assumption that Apple was the only company allowed to have a touchscreen centric OS.

So yes, I have my preferences. Yes, sometimes I'll get passionate. However, I am fair. I'm not ripping on you because you have an iPhone. Right now I'm ripping on you for having a persecution complex and holding years old commentary against me.
