Android load web pages faster than the iPhones

smartphones using android performed better than the iPhones when it comes to loading web pages. Blaze.io, a mobile website optimization company, conducted the study that involved over 40,000 downloads of web pages belonging to the Fortune 1000 companies.

The study revealed that the iPhone loaded web pages 52% longer than Android and on average Android took 2.1 seconds to render non–mobile-optimized web pages, while the iPhone took 3.2 seconds. Android phones outdid the iPhone on site-loading time by 84% of the time.

During the study researchers used the Samsung Nexus S (Android 2.3), Samsung Galaxy S (Android 2.2), iPhone 4 (iOS 4.3) and iPhone 4 (iOS 4.2). The phones loaded pages using a strong Wi-Fi connection, and each device loaded each Fortune 1000 website three times.

iphone would have performed better if they are tested with safari web browser.

QR Code


QR Code is a specific matrix barcode (or two-dimensional code), readable by dedicated QR barcode readers and camera phones. The code consists of black modules arranged in a square pattern on a white background. The information encoded can be text, URL or other data.

It was created by Toyota subsidiary Denso-Wave in 1994, the QR code is one of the most popular types of two-dimensional barcodes. QR is the abbreviation for Quick Response.

There are a number of sites for generating QR codes and they’re all free. One that is Kaywa, a site created by Datamatrix, which is another pioneer of 2D codes. You can use it to create QR codes that link to a web page, text, phone numbers, or SMS.
