In the class of quasi-contractive operators satisfying Zamfirescu's conditions, the most used fixed point iterative methods, that is, the Picard, Mann, and Ishikawa iterations, are all known to be convergent to the unique fixed point. In this paper, the comparison of the first two methods with respect to their convergence rate is obtained.
