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

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…

Right! Nothing wrong with saying the iphone is the smoothest, but all it has as far as I'm concerned. If the milliseconds matter to you... the iphone is the best for you. But the iphone just doesn't do enough for many of us.

Note that literally no iFanboy ever had anything to say about touch responses on OSes until this article came out. Now that it has, they're all "Oh my god, I've always noticed those fifty extra thousandths of a second, and it totally ruins the experience for me every time!"

They're like freaking hipsters of nitpicky standards.

It's hilarious snig. Ifans take anything and run with it. They believe they have had soooo many advantages for years. Seriously man this elitist bs has to end one day. Like this one guy on the gmail ads in the app article. Claiming if google does it he will move to iphone. What a lame bs excuse. Similar to another guy who had a galaxy who would switch to iPhone if it didn't have FLASH. I don't even need to continue

for those who think 100ms dont make a difference, did you even watch the video? How can you say such things as: "who cares if i have to wait some extra 50ms". This totally misses the point.

For me this is the one single advantage iOS has over Android. It destroys the illusion of a perfect immediate interaction with the surface.
When you connect a mouse to your phone this delay is completely gone so it cannot be android itself it must be the interaction with the hardware.

IOS 7 is horrible and has something worse than lag. Before the icons fly in after pressing the home button or wake up button, you can't even open an app or swipe the screen until the icon fly in animation finishes.

That is worse than anything I have experienced on Android by far. Who cares about touch responsiveness when you don't even notice the difference until a test points it out. The lag on IOS 7 is super noticeable and annoying though. Should have stuck with iOS 6 to be honest.
