Well, in this case, you've probably found out that the fresh, new iOS 7 experience by Apple has caused the performance of your iDevice to no longer be as buttery smooth as it used to be...

Upgrade to a 5S, or mini 2. Why not enjoy the best.

Same can be said of any OS, but not everyone can upgrade yearly or even every two years.

That's true PBX. Seems like the latest greatest is always best equipped to run the newest software. +1

Why pay money for something that is free on another platform (performance enhancing (vs decreasing) software updates to old devices (courtesy of the Linux gods on XDA)?

Yep, like their 64 bit A7 dual core, that's crushing the quad cores. Innovate that.

Considering the iPhone has below-HD resolution while all flagships now have Full-HD resolution - of course that's the case when it comes to benchmarks as of now.

To be clear that high scores of benchmark are due to less pixel density (~326 ppi) and lower resolution (640 x 1136 pixels) ....means it require higher time for GPU to fill the pixels for higher resolution like nexus 5 (1080 x 1920 pixels, ~445 ppi pixel density)
Didn't expected from a person like you who has more that 7000 posts.

Yes, i phone is durable, made of good material etc but who cares when everyone is changing their phone in year or so.

Like their new iOS 7 starting to lag....innovate that.
Like their new mass production of curved screens (which sammy and lg already did)....innovate that.
Like their new iOS 7 lockscreen, notification dropdown etc are copy of android.....innovate that.

Being controlled from end point to sale, you'd think Apple would have made sure it didn't lag.
That's quality for you, no it's just a clear sign,
They want you to spend more money.

Well, they tell you what you want and will ever need, you can trust them completely.

Screw you NOKIA why can't I get w8 on my 3310? I shouldn't have to upgrade to enjoy smoothness!
