apples to oranges man....
An iPhone 3GS runs like garbage now too, ask anyone that has one, ios5 hosed it's ability to be a viable phone. That launched the same time as your original droid.
My Nexus S (very similar hardware to your iPhone 4) has been an extremely solid device with no performance issues.
What I'm trying to say is don't confuse a bad device with a bad OS. Both android and iOS have good and bad devices and just because you can cherry pick an example where iOS is better doesn't mean it's better universally.
