PC Mag.com recently ran the iPod Touch through a battery performance test documenting the performance of OS 2.2 versus OS 3.0 equipped versions. They also compared the results with those for the iPhone 3G and 3GS. See the results here.
As interesting as the PC Mag testing and recommendation are, what is almost as interesting are the comments from users who think the recommendation to hold off on the upgrade is absurd. Check out a few comments below:
“With differences as little as a second, how did you measure this? I don’t see how the difference can’t be summed up by human error if not done by some sort of software review. I rarely boot up my iPod. The last time I did was to install the 3.0 upgrade and before that it was almost 2 or 3 months. One feature that speeds things up on my end that isn’t discussed is the autofill feature. That makes surfing much faster and well worth the money.” – MarcZero
