The iPhone 5′s touch screen has faster response times than both Android and Windows phones after cloud streaming company Agawi set new TouchMark benchmarks.
Agawi used a 240fps high-frame-rate camera along with a custom-built device called a Touchscope to measure App Response Time (ART) for different smartphones. The Art is measured through the latency experienced between the time a person touches the phone display to the device’s on-screen response.
The iPhone’s minimum app response time (MART) was 55 milliseconds. The result proved to be far faster than performances by the other smartphones tested. The Galaxy S4 had a MART of 114ms, the Lumia 928 by Windows had one of 117ms, the HTC One took 121ms and the Moto X came in the slowest at 123ms.
In a video published by Microsoft, the difference in latency time between 100ms and 50ms is shown to be a noticeable one.
Why did iPhones test so much better? Agawi thinks that Apple’s touch screen is calibrated so that it is better equipped to capture and process touch than Android and Windows.
More comprehensive testing is required. The company hopes to design more TouchMark performance tests and release the hardware and software behind the benchmarks. This way their results can be confirmed. The company already hopes to test the recently released iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c.
