    So i was out the other night with a few friends and we decided to race our phones going to various web sites. We laid all three phones down in a triangle next to each other. We would all type in the same web site and hit go at the same time. My incredible was killing them. Compared to the droid, the incredible would load the site about 5 seconds faster. The iphone was not even close. One site took about 15 to 20 seconds longer to load on the iPhone. They were shocked at how fast the incredible was. I am so glad I have this phone!

    The stock browser really IS damn snappy, I'll agree. Sure, connection speed is a big factor, but how quickly the browser renders is a big part of it as well.

    Did you clear your cache first, or at least visit websites that none of the phones had been to?

    The iPhone 3G is ancient and the 3GS is pretty old too... the iPhone 4 should be slightly faster than the Incredible, probably comparable to the Galaxy S which is using a more power efficient and powerful CPU.

    honestly I have tried the other browsers and I acknowledge each has strong points and uses but the stock browser is really barebones and fast, great for quick look ups and forays into the interwebs......

    Download speedtest.net and have your iPhone friend(s) do the same; then compare actually speeds. I did this today with my coworker and his iPhone. The Verizon 3G network is way faster than ATT: about double the download and upload speeds. Not sure what ATT is claiming when they say "the fastest 3G network".
