Moving from an iPhone 3G to something like the N1 or HTC desire will I notice an increase in wifi speed?
The iPhone 3G on wifi can be like pulling teeth sometimes.

I mainly use it on wifi at home or cafes etc.

I don't really want to buy an iPhone 4 and do what Jobs tells me I can.


I notice a site comparing N1 and HTC desire with the 3GS here...

iPhone4 seems inferior from this review when compared to the Galaxy S.

I'm using the Samsung Galaxy S and I have to say I love it! Previously had the HTC Desire. The WiFi speeds on the Galaxy S are great. I hum along on the net. Should have Froyo by end of September which will speed things up aswell.

I just FTP'd two files from my Android-running, Eken M001 tablet to my Linux-running PC.

Each file is 135MB and it took 57 seconds. That's about 2.3 megabytes / second...with two other people browsing the web - one of them playing YouTube video.  

Not too shabby for a $150 / 300MHz tablet.

I'll have to try it with my Nexus One.....as it supports Wireless N now.

I spent last week with someone who has a new iPhone. I have an HTC Desire. With both of us accessing the same Wifi and nothing else on that access point, my Desire was considerably faster than the iPhone. I didn't measure actual speeds but was surprised at the speed difference when we were accessing the same sites. It wasn't a controlled experiment and I have no idea what background tasks were running on the iPhone at those times but there was certainly a perceived speed difference.

Going from my Desire through 3 walls to my desktop, testing using iPerf, im getting roughly 11-13Mbit. Just wireless G on android 2.1 and only small 10MB files it was testing with though.
