    After the debacle of upgrading my iPhone 3 to iOS 4 and watching it think about things forever, can someone offer some insight on the performance if iOS 5 on iPhone 4?

    I'd like to be sure my phone will stay teh snappy.

    There's a big link on top that says please direct all iOS 5 stuff to that forum.

    Damn fast. Quicker than iOS 4 for sure. Safari is noticeably snappier and the UI is definitely smoother. It's a very good upgrade for the iPhone 4.

    iOS 5 on my i4 feels great. No lag either, all of my apps seem pretty quick as well. There's no need for a 4S :D

    You guys are lucky. I managed to get IOS 5 on my iPad after a few hiccups, but the iPhone download is going very, very slow. It's saying 7 hrs when the iPad download only made we wait a hr.

    I'm about to go crazy.

    That's exactly why I updated to the GM a few days ago. :p ;)

    Make sure you have a current backup and it'll restore fine.

    My iPad synced perfectly. All my app data and everything is still there.
