    Where the apps in the multitasking tray? Remove them from there are try again. They'll be a difference.

    So the iPhone 4 switched to the app and the 4S loaded it? With that method the 3Gs could be equally as fast.

    Same here. Ran speed test on both my 4 and my wife's 4S and down avg. about 0.2 Mbps faster while up was about 0.3 Mbps faster on the 4S (3.3 down, 1.2 up).

    My bad, glanced over your initial post a bit too quickly. That being said, I expected the 4S to have faster download/upload speeds considering it supposedly supports HSPA+.

    Have you tried any apps that are more CPU intensive, i.e. Infinity Blade?

    What a horrible way to conduct a test. With all phones right next to each other, it's no wonder they were going so slow. And when he ran the SpeedTest.net app, the AT&T phone was connecting to a different server than the other two phones. Take this test with a grain of salt.

    I think it's the apps. Open up something that puts it through the paces and you'd certainly see a difference. The standard cal message etc., stuff wasn't developed to be hyper fast on any processor. You're doing a test akin to running safari on a mini and comparing it to safari on a mac pro. It's still just safari and runs at decent speed. Try something like Final Cut Pro, or autoCAD, if you want to see why the eight other processors were put in that MP>;):p

    Those people saying it's faster have fallen into the apple hype and/or are apple fanboys. It by no means has a dramatic difference in speed. Some posters have even stated that the 4 may even be faster than the 4S.

    Yeah, you should return it. Or you can swap with me I have a iPhone 4. I'll take that slow dog with the 8MP 1080p sensor off your hands.:p;)

    Try loading up this forum in Safari on WiFi and see what you think.

    Unless, ATT has HSPDA+ in your area, it will be same speed as far as 3g or 4g. As far as loading apps, it varies!
