Humor: iOS 4.0 op iPhone 3G

Onderstaande video geeft je het resultaat weer wanneer je de laaste firmware iOS 4.0 draait op de iPhone 3G. Het filmpje werd gebaseerd op de oorspronkelijke reclamevideo van de iPhone 3G waarbij men verscheidene applicaties test, zoals het beluisteren van muziek en het surfen op het internet. Al snel blijkt dat dit heel wat trager verloopt.

Je kan hieruit maar één ding afleiden: de iPhone 3G is niet geschikt voor de iOS 4. De firmware update heeft de werking en snelheid van de iPhone 3G enorm afgezwakt en vertraagd.

Op de website YouTube werd als videobeschrijving door de auteur het volgende gepost:

As a generally happy Apple customer, I bought two 2G iPhones on the first day they hit the market (one for myself and one for my romantic partner at the time). When the 3G came out, I bought that model too.

The first iPhone captivated the world because the interface was so well done, so snappy, so interactive; it was like nothing before it. Of course it was, it was an Apple product. That, right there, is why I buy Apple products. And I didn’t even mind that it was missing “copy and paste,” MMS, ringtones, etc – because I knew Apple would eventually get to these through software updates. And eventually they did. Unfortunately they kept coming out with new phones. With faster processors. And they wrote all their software updates for these phones, with little attention to deprecated models. I don’t really use third party software on my phones, I honestly don’t even use ringtones. I just my phone for SMS, web, maps, and occasionally as an actual phone, so the 3G model was more than I ever needed.

Except over time, it’s fulfilled my needs less and less. And it’s not because my needs have grown. It’s not because I’ve installed a bunch of laggy software. It’s because Apple’s firmware has become bloated, with respect to the processing power of the 3G iPhone. I just installed iOS 4 two weeks ago, and at this point, I’d be happy to roll back to the first firmware I ever had, just to have that original speed again; forget about the copy and paste, I don’t need it that badly.

So, tongue firmly in cheek, I decided to compare my phone to the first iPhone commercial that Apple ran. That commercial lasted twenty-eight seconds. How long will my phone take for the same tasks?
