They will have some trouble loading certain things.
My reasons why I baught a SGP:
1. Not a Crapple product.
2. Bigger screen
3. Hardware is far more better
4. It runs Android which is open sourced
5. MicroSD support
From the 377 how much free ram do you have? You don't have the whole 377 ram. The best you can get is 210 ram abd this after you close everything.
Idk maybe it because i have lot of things on my device but i have friends that have lots if things on thier ipod 4 and the results are like that:
1.because the ssd the ipod4 open the game faster.
2.multi tasking is much better! If you will close an app like facebook it won't return to work after 5 minuts.
3.ipod touch doesn't need something like chianfire to run pib or all the over heavy games.
4.when you get out from a game the ipod 4 get out faster than the sgp.
5.the ipod touch doesn't load the apps after you exit from a game.
6.you can get out from games in the middle and when you back to the games they will continue exactly from when you stoped (again multi tasking)
7.even if its only one game you ran or couple of games you ran in the backround the ipod touch will run the game you play much smoother.
If i want to play pib, temple run, mw3,asphalt 6 or nova 3 i must close all the apps in the backround so i will get something like 170-200 free ram so the games will run smooth. But even after that when i have 1.3 ghz and 170-200 free ram i have little stops in the games.
Im NOT an apple fan but in the players the ipod is the winner.
Idk if it's the android or the device but my sgp is slower than the ipod touch.
Im afaid that everytime a friend take the sgp to play he will get the little stops in the game or even to get the device stuck for good until you restart.
The device isn't smoother than the ipod touch even if he has more ram and more powerful processor.
It's about the results are much important than the hardware in the device.
I want the sgp win but unfortunately in this case he isn't.
Sorry that i wrote a lot and sorry for my english
