    Will putting iOS5 on my iPhone 4 slow it down at all? I'm weary to install it because back when[​IMG] I installed iOS4 on my 3G, it slowed it down tremendously, almost to the point where it was too slow to use. I know the iPhone 4 has much faster hardware in it than the 3G, but will the same thing happen or is the 4 able to handle it so that it won't make the device slower?

    Thanks.

    My two iPhone 4 loved it, although l had to do a "reset all settings" (not content, just settings) on my wife's 4 to fix an immediate battery drain issue.

    Both ran it great.

    I'm not sure if my phone got faster, but it certainly didn't get any slower.

    Before I upgraded to the 4S I had iOS5 on my 4 and it ran great. No slowdowns
