HTML5 Performance In iOS 5 Beta Is Top Notch, Beats Microsoft At Their Own Test!

HTML5 Performance In iOS 5 Beta Is Top Notch, Beats Microsoft At Their Own Test!

Apparently Mobile Safari’s performance under iOS 5 beta is lightning fast, and even beat out existing Windows Phone 7 devices with Mango loaded on them in a speed test set up by none other than Microsoft themselves.

The story goes that Joe Belfiore, Director for the Windows Phone program, demonstrated the mobile version of Internet Explorer 9 by pitting it against the iPhone 4 running iOS 5. Much to his dismay, the iPhone won, running content at 31 frames per second versus the Windows Phone’s 26, showing a dramatic performance increase for HTLM5 content.

This is a beautiful result, and it’s just the beginning. People currently using the iOS 5 beta are aware that it is very much a beta, riddled with bugs and performance concerns. The fact that it can trash Windows Phone “Mango” in Microsoft’s own tests, especially at this state, is a good sign, as that performance will only increase as work on iOS 5 moves forward. Check out the below preview video to see the test in action.

I dunno about you, but I personally can’t stop smiling after seeing this video. Your thoughts? Sound off in the comments!

    Current Mango builds performs at 41 fps, on a processor that’s less good than the one you may find in the iPhone 4. And it’s just one HTML5 test from Microsoft, and it’s one of the simplest one.

    If on a iphone 4 the ios 5 safari version already outperformances the windows phone than I tell you we will have some huge smile when the same test is run on the new iphone 5.
