iPhone 5 Touchscreen is 2.5x Faster Than Android Devices [Chart]

Posted September 24, 2013 at 4:47pm by iClarified
The touchscreen found in the iPhone 5 is far faster than any Android or Windows Phone device, according to a report from Agawi and relayed by VentureBeat.

In its first TouchMarks benchmark test, the iPhone 5 responded to touches at an average time of 55 milliseconds, compared to 85 milliseconds for the iPhone 4. The closest Android device was the Samsung Galaxy S4 at 114 milliseconds.

“Apple trounced the competition,” said Peter Relan, chairman of Agawi. “There is this whole other dimension of responsiveness that Agawi cares about.”

Other devices tested include the Google MotoX, HTC One, and Lumia 928 which came in at 117 ms.

“Even a two-year old iPhone 4 beat out the other Android devices,” Relan said. “You expect this from Apple’s design team, while others may view their responsiveness as good enough. Now we know why the Android touch keyboard is not as snappy.”

“App responsiveness is judged by how quickly the app can respond to your inputs,” said Rohan Relan, cofounder and CEO of Agawi. “Smartphones with touchscreens that have lower MART scores feel snappier. This is probably why, to many users, the iPhone keyboard feels more responsive than an Android phone keyboard.”

Agawi says it will make the TouchMarks benchmark and methodology available on its web site for those interested.

I have always been a Android guy, but I must admit that Apple always has been more snappy. My GF's iPhone 4S reacts way faster than my Galaxy S4. Disappointing I must say.

You're saying apple is snappy yet they won awards for a reason, if you are jealous, switch already, iPhone has and does more! I used the galacrap, never again!

I don't want to switch because of the screen size, and the fact that I bought many apps for android. Just because iPhone is faster in reaction time, doesn't make me want it, just hope that android phones will follow in the future. The freedom of an android phone is more important to me ;)

Well iphone 6 will be bigger this time since only picky sheeps who just want a bigger screen for a phone worry only about that and not specs!

And when they do they will be better ...remember on iPhone 1 picture messaging was non existent. .. Apple does not inovate... they just happen to have better hardware for now
TheRealNoGoodNick - October 29, 2013 at 12:37am
And you don't think about what you said, you say apple doesn't innovate but has better hardware, dude that's like saying cars don't have gas pedals but can move and just because android cat hes up as always, they do that only because they wait for apple make something to copy them, besides when did they ever win a jd power award, where is your proof they were ahead of apple in fact?

Reading the responses I would think the average mind would be the limiting factor anyway...

Now, I know why I can type faster on iphone than any other android phone even with bigger screens! I switched to bigger screen phones a few times and no matter what phone I switched to, what keyboard apps I installed, I still cannot type as fast as on a smaller screen iphone! That bugged me that I switched back to iphone a few times even though it has smaller screen!
gamerscul9870 - September 25, 2013 at 4:29am
I used is, not one problem at all, have you tried sideway typing or Bluetooth keyboards or voice search all with iPhone?

I've had the iPhone since the 2G and I could always tell Android screens were less sensitive. It's good to see it in numbers. iPhone screens are also more accurate if you want to point and click in a small/exact area as well.

Do you feel better now? Knowing your phone touch screen is faster :)
Amanda - September 25, 2013 at 11:21am
haha just a faster touch screen does not mean you will be able to play latest games and music and do 100 other things besides calling like an Android device. Just another expensive product from Apple which apple fans will buy without using their brains. -Amanda Android Developer @ TechAhead Software

Lol.. Android sucks
md33 - September 24, 2013 at 10:11pm
Who cares, their just phones.
TheRealNoGoodNick - September 24, 2013 at 11:07pm
People think it's so awesome when it copies, treat it like it's superior, or thinking apple copying it, and they are also phablets and the bugs we deal with trying to use it, worst experience ever, didn't even like it at first.
cciev - September 24, 2013 at 5:39pm
my phone is better than your phone. ha
TheDude - September 24, 2013 at 5:39pm
...because iPhone 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, x, does 2.5x times LESS things than Android phones can.
KnewIt - September 24, 2013 at 7:39pm
Prove it...
TheRealNoGoodNick - September 24, 2013 at 8:11pm
Speed, loading start up, picture shutter loading, take up room, use less bugs, less page freezes, less time for key typing response! Yeah that summed it up!
SAMSUNG - September 24, 2013 at 5:19pm
No I joke
gamerscul9870 - September 25, 2013 at 11:54pm
