    Default A Comparison of All iPhone Models Ever Made


    The smartphone landscape has changed drastically since 2007 as many of you may already know. Back then, the iPhone rocked the smartphone market and some may say that it still does to a certain extent. Still, the original iPhone lacked several features such as GPS, cut-and-paste, a camera with flash, and it only ran on Edge but still managed to crush its competition. Since then, there have been a total of seven iterations of the iPhone, each one slowly building upon its predecessor.

    It was bound to happen sooner and someone has finally done it, a comparison between all eight distinct iPhone models. Those of you interested in watching the comparison can do so below:



    The results are exactly what one would conclude but what you may find surprising is which iPhone models are able to shut down the quick. Another thing that is surprising is that the original iPhone is able to boot up quicker than the iPhone 3G, 3GS and 4. As one would expect, the more recent iPhone models run faster and smoother than their predecessors but comparing the models side by side really shows the small differences in performance that have come about due to several releases.

    iPhone 4 gotta be the worst model. It was incredibly slow and couldn't handle any decent tweaks.

    Pretty cool comparison! I was never very happy with my iPhone 4, especially with speed after jailbreaking. Very happy with my 5S right now.

    I'm really surprised the iPhone 4 was so crap. But thats also IOS7 on iPhone 4. I bet you install IOS5.1.1 and it'll be a lot better.
    I think IOS5 was probably the best IOS there was so far. 6 was a joke, 7 is just pathetic and all previous IOSs had lots of missing features where IOS5 is the last with all the great features like Google Maps that actually worked and YouTube.
    I know Google Maps is available now and its great but its no longer part of IOS.

    They all look the same. Well, not really. God I remember back when I first got my 3GS and couldn't even have a wallpaper. That was my first smartphone. That phone blew my mind. The phone still worked until about a month ago.

    The first one is not an "iteration."
