Back in June when iOS 4 was released, it had all sorts of performance issues on older devices such as iPhone 3G and iPod touch 2G. Steve Jobs later confirmed that iOS 4.1 update will fix majority of these problems, but even that didn’t pleased everyone.
Now that the final GM release of iOS 4.2 is already out, and with public release looming near, our friends at TiPB ran a quick performance test on iOS 4.2 for iPhone 3G to see how it compares with iOS 4.0 and 4.1. Their verdict?
iPhone 3G’s hardware isn’t as fast and it’s RAM is literally a quarter of iPhone 4’s but it did a decent job typing, scrolling, pinching, and zooming its way around iOS 4.2.
