Chrome su desktop però mostra performance pari se non migliori di Safari. La ragione risiede piuttosto in Android, nel processore: il migliore device Android in circolazione ha una performance peggiore dell’iPhone 5.
Notava John Gruber, nella sua recensione dell’iPhone 6S:
Take a look at Geekbench’s aggregate results for Android devices. In terms of single-core performance, there isn’t a single Android phone that beats the two-year-old iPhone 5S. Android devices fare better in multi-core benchmarks, because they have more cores (some have eight, many have four — the iPhones 6S still have only two cores), but single-core performance is a better measure for the sort of things you can feel while using a device. Apple is literally years ahead of the industry.
