I updated my caching plugins on my wordpress sites after reading this post. The desktop loading is much improved (using better PNG compression helped too). But on mobile, there's a weird delay before the initial loading of the page. I'm not sure if it's a DNS issue or something else
I'm going to try and use the remote debugging tools to figure out what's going on: Get Started with Remote Debugging Android Devices | Tools for Web Developers | Google Developers
On most modern browsers you can emulate a mobile phone, try using pagespeed plugin in emulation and see if you can replicate. There are a variety of ways to get to the bottom of it, but you have to rule out your phone/service first.
I am sure @bytecode has some good suggestions as well.
@softwareRules, glad the caching helped out your site!
The Chrome developer tools are really good with debugging mobile issues. It's not a substitute for actually getting the device and trying it out, but it's the best alternative out there.
Here's how you can run PageSpeed Insights natively in Chrome:

As for the delay, what does it look like? Just a blank screen? Unstyled content? Something else? In general, mobile browsers are slower than desktop browsers. And DNS lookups can take significantly longer.
