SomeTexan: I wonder if the fact that iOS apps are compiled (from Objective-C) to native code, while Android apps are Java programs running on the JavaVM has any bearing on the speed issue?
blacksharpiemarker: The real news: Who cares?/I'd still take a Samsung over an iphone any day/week/month/year, etc.
jjorsett: Unless you're using the phone for modeling molecular folding or analyzing radiotelescope data in the search for ET, what do you care how fast it is, as long as it runs fast enough to do the things you use your phone for? Desktop PCs got fast enough for me a couple of generations back, and when I build a new one these days, I buy a processor that's at least a couple of steps down from the fastest available. Maybe somebody who wants to run a game in HHHHD quality at 6000 fps would find it inadequate (more a function of the GPU anyway), but let those guys pay $6000 for a machine, mine is just fine. The same principle applies to phones.
ecmoRandomNumbers: I'm thrilled with my new nexus 7. I work for Verizon and am not looking forward to the iPhone 5. It's going to be hell. I wonder if I can get the entire 4th quarter until Christmas off.
