Windows Phone 7 Vs iPhone 4: Browser Speed Test Video

For those of you who are seriously considering picking up a handset running Microsoft’s Windows Phone 7 operating system later on this year, we have found a very useful video for you to watch, as it compares web browser speeds along side the iPhone 4 and Google Nexus One.

As reported from BGR, the comparison has been put together by the guys over at PocketNow, who have used the LG GW910 handset rocking Windows Phone 7 for their demonstrations.

The video is over 10 minutes in length, and starts by giving us a cool introduction to the tab loading feature on the browser, which allows you to load up to six different websites simultaneously. General loading speeds on sites like Gizmodo and the NYTimes seems pretty good, while the responsiveness when using the pinch and zoom feature is pretty good too.

As for the speed comparison, the Windows Phone 7 is put up against the iPhone 4 running iOS 4.0.1, and the Google Nexus One running Android 2.2 Froyo. For the first website test (PocketNow), WP7 comes in first place, but comes in last on the next two tests, although the speed differences between the phones are not long at all.

PocketNow think that the mobile browser on Windows Phone 7 has the potential to be one of the fastest on the market and on par with the likes of the Nexus One and iPhone 4, but considering that the software is still at an early build, it isn’t fair to judge the OS based on these tests.

Check out the video in full below, and let us know what you think of it.
