The MS store employee was dishonest and got butthurt when it backfired. That was not a speed test, it was all about who had the phone preconfigured for the selected task.
She choosed something that she had already configured her phone to show on her home screen. In the worst case scenario she only had to unlock her phone faster than the other guy, or at least about as fast which would mean he still wouldn't win.
In the best (and most likely) case, the other guy wouldn't have added those two weather widgets to his own home screen and would hence lose.

His phone was jail broken and modded to hell and back only to be fast at this ONE task. It proves nothing except you can mod your phone to make it a weather station able to show weather a fraction faster than a multi purpose phone.
Call me when he can do it faster on a OOB phone.
"Modded to hell and back" when he only removed the lock screen (which is a standard Android feature) and added two weather widgets?
Are you serious?
