HTC Desire vs HTC Legend vs Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 vs Google Nexus One vs HTC Tattoo – Web browsing and streaming

April 15, 2010 are lucky enough to own all 5 phones and have put their Android web browsers to the test. Guess which phone came out top? The Desire of course!

Here are the best bits:

Sony Ericsson Xperia X10
The browser on the Xperia X10 hasn’t gone under much modding by Sony Ericsson, resulting in a basic version which doesn’t compare so well to the Desire and Legend. That’s not to say it’s bad. Getting around pages is easy, but entering web address should be easier than having to go through the hard menu key at the bottom. YouTube clips streamed and played with no stutter within about 10 seconds. Impressive.


The web browsing experience on the HTC Desire is the business and definitely squeaks top spot from the Legend. It’s the complete package, with Google Translate and Wikipedia baked in, and it’s a doddle to use. The X10 is a mite disappointing, while the Legend and Nexus One deserve honourable mentions.

I must admit I haven’t browsed the web much on my Desire yet [rant]no thanks to TalkTalk taking months to sort out my ADSl migration[/rant] but when I have it has been quick and ‘snappy’. I’ve never had a problem accessing any websites and when clicking on small links you don’t have to be spot-on, the browser seems to guess where you’re trying to ‘click’ and does it for you. Very clever stuff.
