Watch: Speed Test Pits iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S Head To Head

Still trying to decide whether you want to upgrade from the iPhone 4 to the iPhone 4S?  Here’s a video that might help you decide.  In this video, YouTuber Eurosausage pits the iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S head to head in a speed test.  Which came out on top?  The iPhone 4S, of course.  But is it fast enough to warrant an upgrade?  You be the judge.

It should be noted that in the video’s description it is made clear that this is not a scientific test.  However, the creator writes, “I did try to hit the screens at the same time, most are pretty accurate.”  He adds that iOS5 had just been installed on both phones and that they were connected to the same wireless network.

Although the test isn’t “scientific”, I still think it provides a pretty good illustration of what users can expect speed-wise when they upgrade.  The speed test goes through a variety of functions and apps, including the App Store, Find My Friends, Settings, eBay, a few popular games and more.

Check out the video below and let us know what you think.  Would you consider upgrading to the 4S based on this speed test alone?
