I'm too lazy to post a Stuart Smalley photo. But you get the drift.

Hmm.

WHile the A5 chip obviously makes a difference vs. the A4, I'd venture a guess that most of the difference in speed between the 4 and 4s is iOS 5. Put that on the iPhone 4 and see what happens.

I don't think that that is the case. I believe that someone posted benchmarks of the iPhone 4 running iOS 5 and they weren't even close to the 4s.

That benchmark showed that the iPhone 4 with iOS 5 was the 3rd fastest smartphone overall regardless of platform tested on the Javascript benchmark. Hell, even the 3GS with iOS 5 was faster than the Droid X on that test.

Even the test showing the widest margin in performance was only a 2x difference. In the video in this thread it looks MANY times faster than that. Something's not right. I'm guessing that the iPhone 4 in video isn't running iOS 5.

Yes, that's a well known Android bug.
