All the major smartphone platforms have recently received a significant major update that boosted their performance and added new features. Seeing that everyone has embraced HTML5 as the way forward for the web, here at Mobility, we decided to put these platforms to the test.
We got devices running the very latest versions of their platform software and ran the HTML5Test on them. The HTML5 Test has a maximum possible score of 555, and the higher the core, the better the HTML5 capabilities of the browser.
Here is how they stacked up:
|Platform||Android||Windows Phone 8||BlackBerry 10|
|Device||Asus Nexus 7||Nokia Lumia 930||BlackBerry Passport|
|OS Version:||Android 5.0.2 Lollipop||Windows Phone 8.1 + Denim||BlackBerry 10.3|
|Browser:||Chrome 39||Internet Explorer 11||BlackBerry Browser|
Here are results from older or 3rd party browsers on the different platforms:
- Chrome 38 on LG Nexus 5 running Android 5.0.1 Lollipop: 491
- Firefox Mobile 35 on LG Nexus 7 running Android 5.0.1 Lollipop: 456
- Samsung Browser on Samsung Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 running Android 4.4.2 Jelly Bean: 430
