Speed depends on many different factors such as the connection, the device, device memory and processor, your distance to the tower, tower congestion, and a few more. Most of these are outside your control.
On 3G, you should average about 400 to 900 kbps with a max of about 3.6 mbps on the AT&T 3G network. 4G should get you up to 7.2 mbps in most areas where it is available, slightly higher in some.
A test of two different devices is only valid if you are side by side, running the same test via the same network. Otherwise, it is like comparing apples to orange.
