The iPhone 5 is set for a general public release in two days time, and overnight, we have started to see some reviews being published from those who were lucky enough to get their hands on the review and testing units. The reviews are obviously a great resource for people who are considering exchanging their hard earned cash for an iPhone 5, but there will also be a lot of people who are wondering about the actual performance of the device when using it in a real-world environment for everyday tasks.
When running in Mobile Safari, the iPhone 5 returned a result of 914.7ms, which is shown quite clearly on the chart that it outperforms all other devices that have been tested. Some of the more notable devices on the chart are the Samsung Galaxy S III, the iPhone 4S and the HTC One X that are all left way behind the new iPhone 5. Interestingly, the iPhone 4S is actually quite far down in the listings, but the next-generation device is two and half times faster than its smaller brother.
