iPhone 3G Slowdown Could Be Fixed With iOS 4.2 Update

According to this video made by TiPb, all iPhone 3G users who suffered slow-downs after updating to iOS 4 may see their iPhone's performance considerably boosted after they install the incoming iOS 4.2.


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.


The iOS 4 update rendered all iPhone 3G almost useless, with a major slowdown across the board. The iOS 4.1 update helped a bit, but users have said that it was not enough and it's still far away from the original performance of their iPhones. [TiPb]

I sure hope so. I am due for an upgrade, but not sure what phone I am going to get. If Apple wants to court me they need to show that a new iPhone 4 won't be broken by their hand in a couple of years.
