iPhone 4S test shows web and Siri features

A contributor to AppVV in China has managed to get pre-release access to an iPhone 4S in a hands-on video (below) before it has even started shipping in earnest. The short clip shows it nearly twice as fast in the overall BrowserMark test at 89567 points. In the JavaScript-heavy SunSpider web test, it was even faster: it was nearly as fast as the iPad 2, which itself was four times faster than the original iPad and iPhone 4.

We bench iOS 4.3 in SunSpider

The launch of iOS 4.3 has brought a much improved web browsing experience through the Nitro engine for JavaScript, which until now was previously available only in Safari on the desktop.

iPad 2 4X faster in SunSpider web tests

Early tests of the iPad 2's web performance have suggested a major lift in speed over the original. The combination of iOS 4.3's Nitro engine in Safari with the dual-core A5 gave the newer tablet a SunSpider JavaScript completion time of 2121.7ms, or just over four times faster than the original iPad's 8594.9ms. SlashGear's benchmarks showd it excelling the most in a 3D raytracing test, scoring over five times faster, but also better than the average in access and cryptography tests.

iPhone 3GS browser faster than Apple's tests, rivals

iPhone 3GS Web Tests

The web browsing on the just-launched iPhone 3GS is fast enough that it not only beats immediate competitors but even Apple's own claimed testing, mobile ad provider Medialets finds. Using the same SunSpider JavaScript benchmark Apple has used to demonstrate the added speed, the firm says the faster iPhone took about 16.5 seconds to complete the benchmark, or just a third the time of an iPhone 3G with the same iPhone OS 3.0 release. The speed is well above Apple's general claim of having "2X faster" performance across its newer device.
