Why is the app store so slow and why its not mentioned?

I have always found browsing the app store on an iOS device to be significantly slower than browsing play store on an android device. I am NOT talking about lag but its just so slow to load images and text and its always been like this as far as I remember.

Why is this never mentioned and why is this not a big deal?

On the play store the only thing that's slow is if you open full screen images so its not perfect either but its nevertheless a lot faster than the app store in general browsing and its been very consistent at that.
