In its first TouchMarks benchmark test, the iPhone 5 responded to touches at an average time of 55 milliseconds, compared to 85 milliseconds for the iPhone 4. The closest Android device was the Samsung Galaxy S4 at 114 milliseconds.
Lumia 928, Google MotoX and HTC One were also part of the test, and all of them clocked at 117 ms.
“Even a two-year old iPhone 4 beat out the other Android devices, and you expect this from Apple’s design team, while others may view their responsiveness as good enough. Now we know why the Android touch keyboard is not as snappy.”
