Movies are choppy / lagging in iPad retina : will it be better on Android Galaxy Note / Mega?
Posted on 2013-10-11
When I watch gooddrama.net movies or youtube.com on my iPad retina
using puffin browser, the videos (esp those fast action ones) are rather
chopping & often the video lags behind the sound.
Is this due to my iPad retina's processor too slow or not
enough RAM or what's the reason? My kid told me on her
iPhone 5 (not 5S, not 5C), it's just as slow.
Anyone has watched those movies in Galaxy Note 3 or
Mega? Similar issue? Or is Android a more efficient OS
for watching movies ?
Using my 32 bit Thinkpad (with 2MB RAM), those same
videos are not so bad & using Macbook Pro (retina with
8GB RAM) is perfect (don't see any lag/choppiness at all).
But I plan to switch to lower battery power consumption
devices as the laptops/Macbook ran out of battery very
fast when watching movies.
On my X61 Thinkpad, the processor utilization is about
70-95% utilized when watching videos from those sites
