    I got a iphone that's about a month and a half old, my first, and i'm wondering if it is starting to slow down a bit or act funky. I hate to ask this question but... I don't want to be anal, but I still have memories of watching my old samsung moment ring in my hand with a blank screen, missing the call before the phone app could load up. I also occasionally wince if there is a glitch while scrolling between home screens, keyboard popups, etc. is there an ios equivalent to the Windows Experience Index? actually this program just assessed hardware, but I want to know if things are actually slowing down.

    -4s
    -1/4 of storage still free

    No smartphone is completely lagless. Those that continuously tout that the iPhone never lags is actually doing disservice to the brand by hyping a myth.

    All phones slow down as more apps are installed and the greater the interval from restored as new is. Android is way way worse. I hard reset my phone about once every two weeks and do a restore about once every two months. Seems to keep it pretty zippy.

    The only time I ever noticed any slowdown is adding tweaks through cydia, and that is the "fault" of the tweaks, nothing more. I can almost guarantee you that you will not have the issues you mentioned with the Samsung. I generally tweak the living bajeezus out of my phone and it's never been anywhere near as bad as you are fearing.
