iOS is dog-slow on older iOS devices in my experience. It's plenty fast on my 4S*, but on my sister's second-gen iPod touch and several friend's 3G and 3GS's it's Lag Central. Navigating through menus, loading sites in mobile Safari, launching games, you name it, it's horrendous. Hangs, freezes, random reboots. Strange, I thought only Android has those issues.
It's funny that earlier you dismissed anecdotes from several posters regarding iOS battery life, and then a few pages later you turn around and counter claims of iOS instability with anecdotal evidence of your own. "LOL my 3GS never crashed, therefore iOS never crashes."
