Speed Comparison Video of iPhone 4S and iPhone 4

YouTube user Eurosausage posts a comparison video highlighting how much faster the iPhone 4S is than the iPhone 4 at launching apps.


While app launching is a basic task that doesn't show off high-performance graphics and other capabilities, it is one of the most common tasks initiated by users that forces users to wait for the system. The video offers comparison of a significant number of apps, giving a good picture of the everyday performance improvements users can expect in upgrading from the iPhone 4 to the iPhone 4S.

Only a slight speed increase between opening those apps.

The real difference will be when devs write apps specifically for the iPhone 4S to make use of the better hardware.

Exactly, these minor improvement do not warrant $650 price tag if you are upgrading from iPhone 4.
