    Is anyone else experiencing this? Is there a thread on this I missed?

    I mean crazy slooow. SMS takes ages to open, the lock screen won't come up right away, the 'icons flying away' animations stutters and jerks. Brutally slow. Is anyone else having this?

    i think it is about the same as beta 4. things dont open quickly and its frozen once on me so yes i do think you are correct. hopefully the actual gm will be better bc this is only the candidate.

    Its super slow. Like really starting to piss me off slow. Even without multitasking or background wallpapers, you think the speed wuld have been the same as 3.1.3, but no.

    Really? I have found that a 3G with OS 4.0 GM is faster than a 3GS running OS 3.1.3 (yes, I've compared it).

    Mine (3G) is slow - particularly when trying to start a new text. I just get a white screen for a while with grey lines.

    Also, is anyone having trouble switching to speaker when the phone is laying flat?

    Man, I wish that was the case for me. My friend has a 3GS that I play with, and that thing feels like a rocket compared to my phone.

    Typing is brutal now too, worse than ever. :eek:

    Maybe a stupid question but are you comparing OS4 on the 3G to OS4 on the 3GS or to OS3 on the 3G?

    I find OS3 extremely slow on the 3G so I'm really not looking forward to this now.

    Yes, it's extremely slow.

    I've just sold my 3GS running 4.0 and am using a 3G with 4.0 until my iPhone4 arrives. It's absolutely horrible.

    It's not just slow opening apps, it's also extremely jerky. Just going back to the home screen from one of the other app screens, it jerks into place.

    I already felt the iOS 3.0 upgrade on my 3G caused it to run slower. Just better, more complicated software taxing your hardware which has remained the same through two major revisions of the operating system. Honestly, what did you expect? You can't add features without a performance penalty.

    I don't think it's that bad and I have multitasking and the wallpaper enabled.

    It's worse than I thought for not enough benefit on a 3G. May revert if the official release is no different.

    If you restored from a backup, it could be that.

    I had some major slowdowns with my 3G when I restored from a backup. Doing a fresh restore without the backup fixed it for me, even though I had to set email up again and everything.

    It was totally worth it to get the speed back, though.

    The 'Snow Leopard' of iPhone OSes would be nice. The iPod app is crazy slow too.

    I did, in fact, restore from a back-up, so maybe I'll try a fresh restore. That's a bit of a hassle though - it's not like restoring everything is the quickest thing to do.
