iPhone 3GS Beats Nexus One on 3D Frame-rate Test

Even though it's almost 6 months newer, Google's Android Nexus One isn't producing the same frame-rate as Apple's iPhone 3GS according to a Distinctive Developments test. In fact, it's lagging behind. The reason? iPhone 3GS is using Neon floating-point optimization and the Nexus One isn't.

Add this to the capacitive screen performance, multitouch keyboard, and It's interesting to see what Apple got right months or years ago, that others haven't finished or polished even today.

They may seem small or minor, but when taken as a whole those details create the user experience iPhone owners enjoy.
