Hello all! We recently ran a test and found the LCP for our web page with the tool is reporting at 56 sec! Looking at the waterfall, we found the culprit to be several images that are taking > 30 sec to load and are all < 1 mb. The most extreme example is a 700 kb image taking 50 sec. The interesting thing is that when loading the web page from a fresh browser, all the images load in < 8 sec.
Is there some discrepancy when using the tool that I’m not aware of? Some performance piece when serving images to bots that I’m missing? I’m hoping someone can give me a pointer as to what could be causing the difference in experience vs reported time.
