    Too many variables. Same network? Do a reset on both in airplane mode and close all apps to make a more conclusive test

    Turned both off & on, all apps closed, airplane mode... And the same result.

    Could it be possible that maybe your 4S has an A4 chip in there? Production error?

    Is one (or both) of these phones a backup from an older device?

    I think the solution here is to swap phones. Then yours will be faster :p

    Or put a big game or app on both and then run it to see how they stack up. Just going about the iOS interface does not really mean anything. Load up Infinity Blade on each and then see where they compare ;)

    I can see your mom saying " No I'm not going to get my phone out of my purse again" " leave it alone go play with your own phone" LOL

    This.

    Open it up and verify that it is indeed an A5 chip. :eek:

    I ran into trouble setting up the phone, and I believe it might be restored from a backup of itself. Like, a backup from the same device. There are so many myths about the effects of restoring. Could this be because of this? I wonder.

    One of the biggest reasons I got/kept the 4S was for speed.

    Can it? I do have a good amount of apps. My mom barely has any. But I can't imagine that would effect it. Especially on flash storage, right?

    I was definitely hitting them at the same time. I could even deliberately hit mine first and the red one would still win.


    Alright... So maybe I'll reset my phone and see if anything changes. :p

    yeah i was doing random little tests on my 4s and 4 and noticed that the 4 was faster sometimes. there's a lot of variables though. the 4S is restored from a jailbroken backup... has a lot more texts and stuff in it and the 4 is completely stock. so i think that could be why.

    Yeah, my 4S is slower than my sister's 4, too.

    It's gotta be either 1) restoring from backups, or 2) amount of apps/data.

    But what's weird... Is that you wouldn't think either of those would cause problems like this. Doesn't flash memory solve these kinds of problems? And what kind of backup system does screwed up things like this?

    restoré to new and see if it improves speed
    if not, you could just restore again from an old backup and be where you left off
