In this thread I was asking questions about weird wifi latency bug I found. Basically my Samsung Focus had really high latency on wifi. Sometimes on my phone 3g would be faster than wifi. So i googled some speed tests for phones and found. iPhone speedtest

When I ran speed tests there my wifi latency was between 700ms-1200ms, on 3g it is 200ms-300ms. I used other phones like an iphone and an Inspire on the same site on the same wifi connection and got ping times of 30ms-40ms. So I went into an att store and tried another Samsung Focus and I was also getting high latency.

Then I read up on this online and found a thread on a microsoft support page with other people having the same problem. Another interesting bug is when you plug your phone into a usb port on a computer and run the speed test over wifi, your ping times would be 200ms-300ms.


What I'm asking from people here is that others with different windows phones from the Samsung Focus to try running this speed test on wifi to see if they have the same problems or if its just isolated to the Samsung Focus.

thanks

Samsung Omnia

3G = 245
Wi-Fi = 600

I know this is the European equivalent Mochi (But much nicer looking IMO, LOL) of the focus, but just thought i'd share my findings anyway.

My wifi sucks. I am sad to see this thread. I was hoping that the phone itself had an issue and I could just exchange it.

Not sure what to look for using the linked app (history never changes and multiple latency numbers) but using BandWidth, which is a good WP7 speedtest app:
WiFi - DL 7.99Mbps (on 10Mbps service) Latency - 708ms
3G - DL 2.44Mbps Latency 512ms
Checked history and some WiFi latency numbers are as low as 162 - 174ms.

I use WiFi 24/7 as I get better battery life than my 2-3bar 3G. Actually been quite pleased with WFi on my Surround.
