Because I am lucky enough to get a lot of different phones to test I get to use the gambit of Mobile Operating Systems. As I was testing the Samsung Note I couldn't help but feel that it was tad slower than the HTC Titan II.
Not at specific apps or in the "Smoked by Windows Phone" way the Windows Phone just felt snapper in general. It seemed like opening basic everyday tasks like e-mail, texts, weather, etc... was just somehow quicker on the Windows Phone.
I did a side by side test with a Windows Phone (HTC Titan II 1.5Ghz single core processor) and an Android phone. (Samsung Note 1.5 Ghz Dual core processor) I closed all multitasking apps that the Note was running. (so it wouldn't slow it down or give it an unfair advantage by having apps preloaded.) I let running on both phones the basic tasks of checking my email, my Facebook, Twitter, etc..
As you can see the Windows Phone is a little faster at the basic stuff than the Android phone despite the lack of dual core processing power. Thoughts on it? Perhaps an theory of why? Leave them in the comments or reach me directly by sending me a tweet.
