It's been a little while now since iOS 4 was released so we thought we'd check back and see how it's working (or not) for those of you with the 2008 iPhone 3G?

My iPhone 3G (above, yeah, cracked perhaps a tad poetically) really chugged away at first, but after a clean install (not restored from backup) and turning off Spotlight Search, it's working much better now. Of course, if you've gotten used to an iPhone 4 or iPhone 3GS, it's obviously slower but if its your one and only -- or newly acquired hand-me-down, it's almost as fast as it was under iOS 3.x.

Let us know your experience, and if you've come across any other speed tips we'd love to hear them.
