iPhone 4 & iPhone 4S Beat the Nokia Lumia 800 in Browser Benchmark Tests [Video]

Microsoft claimed earlier this year that devices running Windows Phone Mango and its IE9 web browser would beat those running Apple’s iOS platform and mobile Safari when it comes to browsing the web in the palm of your hand. It seems, however, that that’s not quite the case with the Nokia Lumia 800.

359gsm uploaded the clip above to YouTube, which shows Apple’s fourth-generation iPhone 4 and its fifth-generation iPhone 4S up against the Nokia Lumia 800 in browser benchmark tests. As you can see, both iPhones — the iPhone 4S in particular — achieved significantly greater scores than Nokia’s device.

Here are the results in full, courtesy of My Nokia Blog:

iPhone 4 – iOS 4.3
Nokia Lumia 800 – WP 7.5 (aka Mango)
iPhone 4S – iOS 5

Browsermark Test: Higher is better
iPhone 4 (iOS 4.3) – 37 503
