Google and other Android fans might love boasting that Android's latest update gives them the ability to run the whole Flash experience, but their definitely not going to be boasting of its performance..... because it sucks big time!
Thankfully, PocketNow recently did some testing and as you can plainly see from the opening video the results are not good. Flash just happens to slow down the overall phone's performance, and I mean significantly so!
PocketNow's tests, of course, also validates Steve Jobs original arguments and statements that Flash is basically just trash and it is, in my humble opinion, just one more nail in Flash's coffin. Steve, as most now know, has already given us his thoughts on Flash and from what I can see he is more-or-less spot on.
In conclusion, the Android fan boys can brag all they want on this buggy, resource hog, because as much as they love to brag about having Flash, iPhone users can also brag even more so about not having a buggy, insecure and battery and performance hog slowing down their phones to a bloody crawl! Apparently, as of this writing, readers who took part in a Poll Daddy poll conducted by Gizmodo also tend to agree as a whopping 50% of them said that Flash wasn't worth it, and that they would simply prefer to have a speedier surfing experience..
And that's my 2 cents 4 this Tuesday, May 25, 2010
