Note that the iteration itself has the exact same performance. The difference 
you're seeing is overhead only.

A sufficiently large vector (which can be as small as 10 items) or sufficiently 
complex action on iteration (a printf, for example) will completely offset the 

Both QVector and std::vector from libc++ have the exact same type for the 
iterator and const_iterator

    typedef T* iterator;
    typedef const T* const_iterator;

    typedef pointer                                  iterator;
    typedef const_pointer                            const_iterator;
