These days a Smartphone is just as important as a computer. It is essential that users select a device that has the best performance possible. This thesis used simulation to compare the performance of an application on two of the most popular mobile operating systems, Android and Windows Phone 7. An application was developed using the Android SDK/Java and Silverlight’s C#/XAML respectively. This application tested the performance of threads, file I/O, database loads, buffering, and caching on both operating systems. Both simulation devices were set up with the exact same specifications. The performance was measured using response times, CPU, and memory usage. This work shows that there were major differences in the performance results. With the response times Windows Phone 7 out performed Android in every scenario except buffering. Windows Phone 7 also used the least memory in every situation except loading when a web page without caching. However when it came to CPU usage Android used half of what Windows Phone 7 did.
