    Ever since I updated the iOS on my Verizon iPhone 4 , I feel like its moving more slowly. Everything takes ever so slightly longer to open etc. ?

    Anyone else experience this? Thx! :D

    Its slow for you? now I'm not trying to advertise apple or anything but i feel they have made it faster.Have you tried restoring and then slowly moving your apps to your iPhone?

    Hard reset and that should help.

    My iPhone 4 has slowed down with every iOS update since launch, i've had two different handsets and experienced the same problem. (its not unusable by any means, just notably slower from when it was brand new).

    I also have 4 close friends with iPhone 4 handsets and they are all exact same.


    I have hard reset, i've deleted a lot of data and apps that I dont use too, nothing works, just like the iP4's predecessors they end up slower with more advanced software and in reality it makes perfect sense even if its not welcome.

    There have been numerous users who have reported their 4 is slower after iOS update. The new OS is more CPU intensive so I can see where it might happen.

    I'd love to know what software update you are on. I'm on 5.0.1, jailbroken, and occasionally get a lag with something once in a while. If that happens, I shut the phone down, reboot, and I'm fine.

    The 4 is meant to run iOS 5 with no issues. When it gets into 6 and higher, I suspect we'll see some slowdowns.

    Proof of this statement? There were actually a significant number of CPU reduction changes made in the last two updates.

    Proof that these "reductions" were enough to offset the differences in CPU!:p

    Not sure how problems with your jailbreak relate to stock software.

    I have no problems with my jailbreak. Just stating what my setup is, and I'm on 5.0.1 with little, if any issues

    Mine is slightly slower, but it's not terrible.

    It is slower. THis is especially apparent when compared to a 4s. It is what it is. Liveable, but given the choice between the two, especially side by side, I would pick the 4s; there is certainly a noticable difference.

    Thanks for everyone's comments!

    So you updated your iPhone 4 and notice that it's slower now?

    Noticeable on 4, big lag on 3GS

    My wife noticed a slow down after updating to 5.0.1 on her 4, usually a 1 to 2 second delay between apps. It was much more noticeable (painful) on my 3GS...so much so I was exploring ways to back rev the 3GS. Fortunately, we just upgraded both to 4S on Verizon...it's nice to be able to actually use our cell phones again at home! Good by AT&T :)
