While your purchasing decision will most likely not come down to speed when comparing the iPhone 5 and the Galaxy Note 2, it’s still a factor to be considered. In the speed test we conducted, we took a look at how long each phone took to boot up its respective OS, how quickly each phone opened the same app (by the same developer), and finally how long each smartphone took to load a couple of web pages. What were the results? Watch the video below to find out!
While in the video I called this speed test a tie, after further review I’ve decided to give the win to the iPhone 5. Why? Because while the two phones were neck and neck for most of the test, the iPhone 5 took less time to boot up and loaded more (but not all) web pages faster. Like I said earlier, if you’re considering these two phones you want them for completely opposite reasons, but you can rest assured that speed won’t be an issue with either of them.
