I'm happy to make compromises on the camera, bluetooth, sim lock/carrier lock, but I really shouldn't be asked to compromise on basic operational performance, email and browsing! Aren't these the very things the iPhone is supposed to be great at?!
Actually these are areas my iPhone is faster than my N82, obviously it seems to be a subjective issue.
Maybe your network is to slow
For example this forum is slow to respond no matter which device I use or whether I'm on wifi or not.
I've found when posting on forums the speed can be affected by the site, with those specifically optimized for the iPhone to be the fastest.
When using Opera, I found that having everything get processed through Opera's servers slowed things down, although the ads that used to appear in Norwegian were slightly amusing.
