Following the iOS 4 upgrade of my iPhone 3G, the performance was so excruciatingly bad that Apple have convinced me to go to the  4G. Bastards. My conrtract with Vodafone still has 3.5 months to go, but my experience with them has been so bad that I've ordered the replacement from the Apple store and will probably switch to XT when I can. I've been a customer for 16 years (since the old Bell South days), but I've had enough....

the performance was so bad on one of their products that it convinced you to buy another product from them?

makes perfect sense.

Apple operate like this:
1) Build up a army of bots, also known as "Fanboys"
2) Release a new product, that's only marginally better than the last, and then the Fanboys swarm in millions to buy the new product.
3) Release BETTER product the next year.
4) *Loop*

It seems the OP is in that endless loop, there's other "better" phones out there.

It's just a subliminal thing...

Go without any handset for a few weeks and it'll pass

a fix for the slowness of the 3g is evidently in the works
Isnt it funny that we always need something a bit faster when it was ok before
I still use my original jailbroken iPhone 2g   does the job just isnt as fast.  I bought an ipad which has made me realise that the 2g iphone is very slow but hey i am not upgrading cause I can wait a few seconds longer to save alot of cash. I can mulitask by putting the phone down and drinking my coffee or whatever else Im up too. So slowness can be an advantage if you use it right

Well, it's no different than upgrading to win7 on old hardware .... Except no one told us that the phone would run like a dig afterwards....

iOS4.1 should help the slowness, on the 3g, The beta 3 certainly did on my 3g.

Its shouldn't be too long until its out. 

So Steve tells me.

simple logic.

It's not slow simply in comparison to the new model. It's slow because the os makes it run like a dog. It freezes for many seconds at a time, and it inevitably pauses at inopportune times. I might have considered a google alternative but I have invested in a lot of phone apps....

Well Astroboy, I tried the iPhone 3 (G)(S) on XT and it flies. Apparently the 4 is even better. I'm moving across too, tomorrow in fact, with the whole company.

"better" phones, I have to disagree. I looked at the other current options and none were as polished as the iphone. I mean with Android (which I guess is what you really mean) most of the devices in NZ are still on v1.6 with no hint of an upgrade - reminds me of the old WinMo days waiting for TNZ to release 6.5 for the HTC touch.

I think there are some similar phones to the iphone 4 and some are probably better in one or two areas but I wouldnt say they are better all round.
