In this article, you will get to know what is the difference between both of them.
Let’s have a look!
AMP and RWD both work on mobile phones but have different goals. Responsive web design is more focused on flexibility. With the help of this method, the focus is on creating a website that can work on any device, from desktop computers to mobile phones.
While AMP is the method that delivers content to users instantly. This method is more focused on speed.
The other most important difference between AMP and RWD is that accelerated mobile pages can work with existing websites but in the case of Responsive Web Design it replaces the current website.
For working with AMP there is no need to replace the current website, it can also be added to responsive websites. While we have to re-design the website to implement Responsive Web Design.
AMP works only with static content whereas Responsive Web Design is suitable for any website. So, for this reason, AMP is good for articles, blogs, informational pages, and
Responsive Web Design works amazingly for web forms and custom applications.
Responsive Web Design (RWD) offers a mobile-friendly website but it does not fulfil the need for speed. In the case of accelerated mobile pages, this method is highly optimized for speed and mobile user experience.
AMP is very fast and suitable for high-traffic websites. This will provide a better mobile user experience and is faster than many methods, but is not suitable for websites that work on web forms and custom functionality.
All these are the differences between accelerated mobile pages and responsive web design. AMP is fast and Responsive Web Design is more flexible, you can choose according to your business requirements.
