Bigger, Better and Slower iOS4

Even though iPhone 4 is better and faster compared to iPhone 3GS, the iOS4 is not. Especially on iPhone 3GS let alone 3G model. Our customers have noticed this also.

Finnish iPhone magazine (iPhone Maailman by Talentum) did some more thorough testing and this is what they found:

All device here used iOS4 and run different apps and tests. For example time to load NYTimes.com front page took 14,7 seconds from iPhone 4 but whopping 45,1 seconds from 3G. App called Peggle it opened in 3 seconds with iPhone 4 but 16,5 seconds from 3G (8,5 secs with 3GS). Other apps pretty much follow the same route.

So opening up your app with iPhone 3G running iOS4 might lead to some idle time waiting for the app to load.
