I didnt realize the iPhone browser was that efficient at javascript. It looks like safari is the one with the best browsing experience.

A best browser that can't play flash file even! The guy who thought i tried to play flash with my ZEN! Ha ha ha! Does he know actually what ZEN is? Before replying just read my comment again. Oh sorry! Do u really know how to read? A third party beta browser (opera mini 5 beta) can render web pages more perfectly than the crap safari browser. This article is about web browsers not about iphone lovers or iphone specifications. Hope the iphone lover will realize.

you were talking about iphone. I've tested an iphone. It has nothing but a great touch screen. Yes iphone is a good phone (not a good phone actually just it would be a phone then) after the jail breaking. But why should i jail break my iphone? Why should i lose my warrenty? To play flash file and for a download manager? that's bullshit. There's a post on gsmarena blog about iphone That the ten reasons that's why you won't like iphone. Just check it out. Then reply later. And here's the guy saying 'iphone rulez....(!)'.
just go to hell with your piece of crap iphone.

Closed source really sucks.

Iphone is the best... got the best browser.. best look... 1000's of site have iPhone support already..

there are apps exclusive for iPhone by big companies like Paypal, Google etc..

every thing comes for the iPhone and not for stupid omnia hd or HD2 or something..

Only phone which is better than iPhone is SE X10 and iPhone 4g is gonna beat the hell out of it too..

iPhone rulez... and for that creative guy who said that he wants to play flash bullshit with a ZEN

just JB your iphone and you can download files to your phone and install the flash plugin to run flash videos.. ok?

watch = 321ueOiBw7s (Youtube)

to do and now just don't talk utter nonsense when you don't know stuff or haven't used the phone you are blabbering about..

I've heared nothin but people slating the iPhone. i get it now, only people who don't have one of have used one for any length of time dislike it. It's easy to see why people feel like they've got to slate it because obviously you've bought the wrong phone by trying to avoid it. The iPhone is quicker and better than all the other phones on test. I'm deffo going to get one now. Cheers GSM arena for helping me make my mind up. :-)

> In reply to Marc @ 2010-02-13 08:05 from StNb - click to readFlash is flash. Flash wasn't created for online flash games only. I could give u an example. I'm using creative zen. And in creative's site there is a video about zen in flash file. So how can i play the video with your iphone dear? Iphone for those people who wants their cellphone for fun. Apple's technologys are at least 2 years backdated than the other phones. Check it out. You'll notice. So iphone sucks! A piece of junk.

Ah, true... You should include Skyfire browser in your test. And it's a first mobile browser with Flash support out of box. And maybe much more at the moment

Opera Mini beta on the 5230 - 98 on the Acid test, 54 on the JS Benchmark. So almost at the top on rendering, and way above the rest on performance. Imagine what Opera mini would be like running on something with a decent processor.

The standard Nokia browser won't even connect properly to their own Beta Labs site ....

Salam, Hello, Thx to GsmArena. For me OPERAMINI is more popular and more commun than the ather browsers, it is a J2ME application that need a medium range device with less network connection on to mouve. Webmaster shoud make webpages usefull for mobile browsers with less flash and javascript.
