    Default ios5 on an iphone 4 question please

    for those of you testing the new ios5, does is run smoothly on the iphone 4? is there any lag at all since the 4 is 512 ram and the ios5 will probably be on the new iphone 5 that will most likely be 1ghz ??

    Just want to make sure the ios5 will run really well on the 4 before loading it , dont want my 4 to slow down alot with it.

    Appreciate all feedback..

    oh also, is the 5 that everyone is testing be the one that will eventually be on the new 5 phone??

    There has been lag on different versions of betas but then have been fixed with newer betas. I have very little lag on beta 7 if any at all. The iPhone 4 is powerful enough to run iOS 5 without problems.

    I didn't notice any lag when I was using it. I rolled back to 4.3.5 because it had some bugs and incompatible apps that i use daily. I will 100% update once my apps get updated and there is an untethered jailbreak

    While I was fooling around on the betas as well I'm comfortable in saying our iPhone 4's can run iOS 5 fine. =) looking forward as update day advances.
