It makes you happy when new software runs like ass on your POS 3 year old phone?

That's innovation! Let's limit our software so our oldest phone can run it!wheee.gif

That's what happens when you flood the market with cheap devices every 6 months. Gotta' hand it to iOS and WP7 for not fragmenting.

The amount of people that still have an iPhone gen-1 v.the amount that still have a 1st generation Android phone is going to be incredibly lopsided in the iPhone's favor.

Loved my old G1, but the lack up updates past 1.6 was really annoying. Ended up rooting and Cyogenmod'ing it to 2.1.

Have the G2x now with 2.3 and love it. Got my update (through LG, not through T-Mobile) very soon after release.

Nope, garminfone was unmodifiable because garmin wanted to protect their GPS software and not let everybody port it to every other phone and get free GPS
Nobody would even try to run GB on a G1.

Aside from that valid point. We don't need no stinking "official" updates to have the latest OS version so to me (and I guess to you too) this chart doesn't mean much but there are quite a few people who wait on official updates.

Which defeats the point of this article.
The 3G is outside the realm of iOS4. It shouldn't even be part of the debate. iOS4 came out 3 years after the 3G. This chart only goes out to three years, and anyone who keeps their phone for more than 2 is just wasting the opportunity to get a newer phone with a contract upgrade.

Actually probably some truth to that...

They aren't limiting the software, and having the option to upgrade to the latest OS, even 3 years after the phone was released, is a heck of a lot better than the track record that Android is showing.

Except that's what the article is arguing.

The article is showing lifespan of 3 years for a given phone. iOS4 came at the END of those three years for the 3G. In other words, it's off the charts, or, at best, on the very last square of the chart for the 3G.

So no, the article is not arguing that iOS4 should be installed on your 3G iPhone.

But it was only 2 years?
iPhone 3G launched 7/11/08
iPhone 4 Launched 6/21/10

Both dates are on the chart.

The 3G was updated to iOS 4 on the 21st of June when the iPhone 4 launched. That's two years, well within the time frame of the chart and the argument presented by writer.

Tator is right, it was 2 years. Not 3.

Though, keep in mind that the 3GS isn't running into the same problem with iOS5. The 3G had a measly 128MB of RAM, which is what caused all the slowness and crashing and everything (there was never more than ~30MB free for apps, sometimes even less). It was bad enough on 3.x, but when they added pseudo-multitasking into the equation it all went to hell.

From what I've noticed, my friends 3GS is running pretty poorly with iOS 5 in comparison to the launch OS (3.4?) and it's last iOS 4 update.

He actually rolled back for that reason. As always, YMMV, but I've definitely noticed this trend with most devices and OS updates.

On the other hand, I will commend Blackberry for having very useful (in terms of productivity) OS Upgrades that run well even on 3 & 4 year old devices. (Though, for them this is more of a concern due to the number of companies using their services.)
