Engadget in its extensive review of Google Nexus One carried out a web browser speed comparison test between iPhone 3GS, Nexus One and Motorola Droid. The test involved opening of engadget.com homepage at the same time on all the three handsets, running on a local WiFi network.

Folks over at Engadget have got their hands on the Google Nexus One and their first impression of the device is “Nexus One thus far is .. not very different than the Droid in any substantial way.”. Yes, the phone does feel a tad faster to work with when compared to Droid, thanks to its 1Ghz Snapdragon processor. But the difference there is not by much.
