But the things I miss most about going away from BB are still:
Full application integration between social apps/contacts
Things I will NEVER miss from by BB:
SLOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOW startup time (over 15 minutes)
Medeocre battery life
Poor application selection
Poor application stability
SLOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOW startup time (again, this was a big deal, negated the use of replacement and extended batteries, god forbid you drop your phone and the battery pops out).

Slow startup times have pretty much disappeared, now it's only a slow shut down. Not 15 mins though, more like, 1.

I figured that this was improved. It was too big of a deal to ignore. I also know that they have added touch screen support and improved their processors. However, I hope they BB understands that while I appreciate the addition of a touch screen, it isn't license to get rid of the trackpad and keybard.
TBH, the Torch was probably their best form factor, other than the Bold. They just needed to improve the OS and the guts, as the form factor was fantastic.
A wifi hotspot is always going to be faster than 3G. This test seems kind of pointless unless both are tested 'one at a time' on the same network. The browser benchmarks on the iPhone 5 are pretty good, certainly better than most Android phones with the possible exception of the Nexus 4!

Anything that hurts Android and the Korean copycat evil empire AKA SamSUCK is a win for the consumer and for innovation!As soon as real Apple competitors spring up, the only people running Android will be the hobbyist nerds who root their phones to get around paying for anything.[/citation]
Android will still be the No. 1 platform for a while. IOS/Apple isn't even a competitor to Android anymore.
I'm not sure what websites they're using, but I've yet to find a website that takes anywhere near that long to load on my Lumia 920, whether on wi-fi or 3G/LTE. Well, unless I'm in an area with poor signal or the network is congested, but of course that has nothing to do with the browser. It seems like they cherry-picked website that take an inordinate amount of time to load in general, and one of them IE failed to load at all -- also something I've never had an issue with on my phone.
