    Hello,

    Since upgrading my iPhone 3G over to iOS 4.0 my phone has become very very slow and frustrating to use.

    I wanted to ask how is the iPhone 4 at running iOS 4.0? I have checked it out at an Apple store and it seems to work and flow pretty well. (Like how my 3G used to before the update...)

    How are you guys finding the iPhone 4?

    Thanks!

    iOS4 is fine on iPhone 4. It's actually more than fine, it is super snappy to use. What you have to keep in mind is that you are running this generations software on a two year old device. Think of it as you running MacOSX 10.6 on a computer that is 5 years ago. It just isn't going to work very well.

    It's fast but it stutters a lot. Opening and closing the camera can be ugly for example.

    I'd say it's about 25% faster than a 3GS.
