Is the 3GS much faster for database like this?

Hi everyone.

I'm contemplating a move from 16g 3G to 32g 3GS. I use Bento for a pretty large (213k, I think) database, and it runs very slowly on my 3G. Is the better processor speed and larger memory in the 3GS likely to let it run faster (search, scroll, etc.) than on my 3G? Thanks for any help before I purchase.

213k is big? I would say it will be faster because the 3GS is faster overall with the better CPU and more memory. Literally everything I've used my 3GS for is faster than my 3G without a doubt.

Your best bet would be to test it out on someone elses first to see if you are happy with it.
