Android vs Apple response times

One of our guild elders has uncovered a difference in the device versions of the game. Everyone with Apple devices reports little to no lag and therefore has the opportunity to play more missions and quicker than players with Android devices, putting the Android users at a distinct disadvantage, estimated to be 50% slower. Anyone else noticed this?

    Others in my guild have stated the opposite.

    I use an older Android Samsung Galaxy Tab 4. I get 15-18 missions per battle. Last war I mentioned it in chat. The two guildies who battled with me both outscored me 400+ to 230ish. They have iPhones. Like @Cronus said, the load times are long. I've seen others post in the forum about doing 25-28 missions.

    I have regularly done ~30 with my Galaxy S6.

    Yep, also about 30 seconds loading time... there is no way I will be able to make up for the halved RP by playing more missions. Not because I wouldn't want to...

    I can finish a map (regular or human) faster than it takes to get to the battle 😵
    My devices are both Android (archaic tab and 2017 phone)

    Samsung model sm t580, my load time is about as long as a mission. The price you pay for saving money.

    I have noticed a difference between using my phone vs my Chromebook (both android platforms). It is pretty day and night.

    Think it mostly depends on the strength of your internet connection.

    For those people on Android saying they have no load problems, just how quickly does it load?

    Those in my guild with newer iPhones are seeing sub 5 sec loads. Many on Android, myself included, are seeing 30+ sec load times.

    On missions mine is much closer to 5 secs than 30 secs.

    That's blisteringly fast @PigBenis

    What device do you use?

    If you've only used Android, you won't be able tell. If you have tried both, you will see the newer iPhones and iPads are MUCH quicker!

    I've got an LG Stylo 4 (Android) with both data and wifi activated. Missions load in about 5-10 seconds, usually closer to 5.

    Galaxy s7, my load times are really slow, I only did 21 missions on the last battle scoring 346 despite doing missions quickly. My guildmate was nearly at 600.

    We have a guild member with latest iPhone X and he posted gameplay video showing 2-3 seconds load times before and after missions
    Those with latest high-end Android devices get 10 seconds load times
    Its an insurmountable difference ... very unfair

    It seems very varied across devices. I'm genuinely surprised at how fast some older Android devices run so it's clearly an optimisation problem.

    I wish I had the 2-3 second load times some people are seeing, but oh well what can you do?

    I think it needs looking at, been on the losing end in a close battle and with faster loading it may have been a win.

    I would think loading times are always going to vary due to different devices and/or wifi speed and quality.

    Not sure what NG can do to change that if anything.

    Unfortunate, but true!
    Just a draw back of how the game mode was designed! (Speed)

    Regarding Andruid and iOS response times, Andruid has guild leaderboard fixed sooner as opposed to iOS I'll tell you that 😁

    As far as GW is concerned, a Platoon of iPhones beats a Platoon of Androids every time.
