Iphone 4 or Iphone 4s??? HELP?

Postby dans2 » Thu Oct 06, 2011 10:25 pm

Hey guys.. I currently have a Droid Incredible.. and it's kinda buggy.. I just sold my 16g Ipod Touch for 150.. so I can buy a IPhone 4 or dish out an extra 50 and get the Iphone 4s..

Do you think the 4s is worth it? It seems like the upgrades aren't that amazing...

If you're going to get an iPhone, get the 4s. If nothing else, the resell value of the 4s should trump the 4 by more than $50.

Did you sell a 1st gen iPod Touch? I have one and would love to sell it for $150. Hell, I'd take $100.

Yes, get the 4s. It might not look all that different now but I guarantee that there will be updates that regular 4 won't be able to get. Probably in the next 6 months. I'm not positive, but I think this might be the first iphone that has a new feature (Siri) that won't be usable on any older iphone. So, if you're signing a 2 year contract and don't get to upgrade this thing for a year and a half without paying full price, get the 4s. The only thing I wouldn't do is pay full price for it if I was already in a contract.

I'm using my dads upgrade now.. but I get mine in 5 months.. So I didn't wanna spend too much on a phone that might be out dated in 5 months (i realize the 4 is outdated as of now already, but its much much cheaper and the features dont seem too diff)

That's a different story then. If you don't plan on selling it, I'd go with the 4 then unless you want Siri.

Coincidentally, I have both an Incredible and an iPhone 4. I use the Incredible as my normal phone. The iPhone is for testing and is my phone when I'm abroad.

I would go with an iPhone 4 if you want to upgrade eventually to an iPhone 5 (ETA Midsummer/Fall 2012). If not, an iPhone 4S, especially if you want the bump-up in storage, 1080p video capture, and Siri.

I was thinking the same thing.

Do you like the incredible? The camera is great, but it's just buggy. I have never used Iphone and plan to get the 5 in summer (I have an upgrade again in a few months with new contract so..

what do you mean by buggy? The only problem I have with my Incredible is the lame battery life, but other than that it works great when I pay the bill on time.

I like the Incredible. I've had it for about 16 months now and it's still as responsive as the first day I've had it. I never encountered any troubles with the camera, never had any SMS crashes. Battery life on most Android phones is sub-par and the Incredible is no exception.

Both the Incredible and iPhone 4 are on even footing, IMO, with a slight edge to iPhone. Incredible is great for notifications, superior Google Maps integration, Sense UI, voice quality, and portability (it's surprisingly lighter than iPhone). iPhone is better for extended battery life, photo/video capture, and the quality/depth of apps/games is superior to that of Android.
