I feel like I've got the worst iPhone ever built by Apple - The iPhone 4. Disappointed with no Siri with iOS 5, no fly over. Ridden with problems like antenna gate battery gate laggate all sorts of gates by Apple. And I know, some of them are overblown problems. That's okay. I'm getting the iPhone 5 anyway. And I don't need flyover because I know its a hardware limitation. But I want to rant . Yes, ranting threads get the most attention and flaming and I know that. So, Thanks for the added lag with iOS 6, Apple. So apparently I restored my phone twice to iOS 6 into factory conditions and I got the same annoying lag with my phone. So the only thing i can conclude is either Apple didn't do a great job optimizating it (Most likely) , or the iPhone 4 seriously has a dated hardware. You can say I'm a person who sits around doing nothing but watch the laggy framerates my iPhone 4 has. But that's just me. Being a perfectionist, I'm anal to little details. But looking at how smooth my iPod touch 4th gen runs iOS 6 is enough for me to doubt how Apple optimized iOS 6 with the iPhone 4. My iPod touch runs iOS 5 very well, crappy on the iPhone 4. Now it has been once again repeated with iOS 6. If you want a great example, try quitting the camera app when you boot it from your home screen. (iPhone 4 owners) Jumpy frame rates all over the place indicates obvious negligence by Apple. And Apple and iOS is supposed to triumph Android for its 'buttery smooth' iOS which I know find it hard to believe WITH THE iPhone 4. (Again, as always, subjective to different people's opinion) I find somewhat hard to believe engineers are actually testing iOS 6 on an iPhone 4 without even noticing all these little problems. So Apple, how hard is it to pump up frame rates in the UI animations to at least match the iPod touch? The iPod touch running the same hardware does it well, but apparently either this was a deliberate crippling of hardware or you didn't do a great job with optimization. I'm no hardware expert, but the iPod touch comparison pretty tells me everything else. I know I'm going to get TONS of flaming with this thread, but that's the only way I can express my opinions and a little annoyance over this issue. In a word of fairness, the folders animation issue has been largely solved of course. And there are also noticeable speed improvements in a number of other areas. But I would much rather have the springboard experience to be buttery smooth and fluid too, please apple? But I will say, iOS 6 is a great update overall features wise, but Apple needs to buck up on the optimization side. I hope Apple do not neglect older devices and actually pick up an iPhone 4 and see how 'smooth' (/s) iOS runs on that device. Perhaps this means I shall order an iPhone 5 even sooner than the late oct-november or even december target I've set for me and my wife to get the iPhone 5.
