There are numerous questions (and good answers!) about the fact that iOS 4.0 is horribly slow on an iPhone 3G.

How about iOS 4.1? Does anybody have any positive experiences to share? I'm staying on 3.1.3 for a long time still, or until any new v4.x isn't any slower.

iOS 4.1 is under NDA, so anyone who comments about it is breaking their contract with Apple. – Chealion Aug 8 '10 at 19:25
OH! I didn't know, I thought it was already public. In that case, lets's just let this question linger here until people can safely provide answers. – Torben Gundtofte-Bruun Aug 8 '10 at 19:54

An excellent and very promising article! The video doesn't look like a parody to me at all, sadly. I've downgraded to 3.1.3 myself bcause of this. I'll wait with accepting the answer a bit, to see if anything else comes along too. Thanks! – Torben Gundtofte-Bruun Aug 9 '10 at 6:03
Same my iPhone 3g is woefully slow with 4.0.1 – Sam Saffron Aug 9 '10 at 6:16
I think the parody part of the video is the commentary and music/sound effects. – Martin Aug 10 '10 at 10:09
