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.
