Approximately one hour ago Apple launched iOS 4 for iPhone and iPod Touch, so far we have heard some success stories regarding the update, however there are also quite a few problems.
There are two main annoyances so far, one of these annoyances is that the optimizing images process takes a very long time when installing iOS4, the other problem is that performance on the iPhone 3G is said to be very poor.
This is probably because the iPhone 3G has just 128 MB eDRAM and a 620 MHz processor underclocked to 412 MHz, whereas the iPhone 3GS 256 MB eDRAM and a 833 MHz processor underclocked to 600 MHz.
A few frustrated iPhone 3G owners have venter their annoyances on Twitter, such as bhaggs who recently tweeted “I don’t recommend iOS 4.0 for the iPhone 3G. It has been way sluggish. Almost want to revert to 3.1. But I got an iPhone 4 coming”.
iPhone 3GS owners seem very happy with the update, such as techworlock who tweeted “Early impression of IOS 4 is that it feels faster than 3.1.3”
Have you installed iOS 4 on your iPhone 3G? If so, how are you finding the performance slow or fast?
