How many of you are getting the 4S - Page 5

post #41 of 94
Own the 4 now, 16 months into my contract with ATT. will buy the Samsung Galaxy Note upon release and sell the iPhone and Acer Iconia. So no I wont buy it. But I promote buying it to anyone who likes iOS (like me ) and wants a nice dual core CPU/gpu (yes I said gpu, gaming on the iPhone is awesome)

OT: if the iPad 3 has retina, I'll be buying that. This Iconia really freaking sucks compared to even a 1st gen iPad.

I agree, those with an iPhone 4 don't have a huge incentive to upgrade (although if your eligible, it would not be a bad choice). My wife and I have a 3GS, so the 4s looks real nice. By the time I get an upgrade, the iPhone 5 will be out and the 4s will be affordable. I have no problem being 1 or 2 gen behind.

AT&T give iPhone owners an early upgrade price. I can get a 32 gig iPhone 4 for $449 with a 2 year contract even though I am not officially eligible for another year. Not sure what if any discount I will get for the 4s (I guess I can look tomorrow).

Same here!

My wife and I both hate our Samsung Fascinate's. We are definitely getting the 4S.
post #45 of 94
Not a freaking chance.... all 4s has is a better cpu, better camera, and siri....Apple has billions of dollars to come up with something...(anything)....and they give us a slightly better Iphone 4. Im on my ATT pantech phone which ive had for about 3 1/2 years. Was looking forward to the iphone but now not at all. Looking at a samsung galaxy s II (however battery life looks awful on that thing)...so still searching.

I thought about doing that, but last time my wife and I got new phones, she got the 3G (last gen) and I got the 3GS, and she's just had so many problems with the 3G and it being an absolute snail and crashing a lot. I'm afraid with future OS updates and newer apps, we'd get behind again if we didn't get the latest model now.

Also worth mentioning, the 4S 16GB is $199 right now (with contract). The 4 is $99. The 3GS and 3G had the same pricing ($199/$99) when we bought ours. Funny thing is, her 3G will resell for around $100, whereas my 3GS will resell for around $200. So the $100 difference that I paid to have the latest model sticks around with it until I resell to buy a new phone.

What else did you want the 4S to have? 4G is the only major feature missing that I can see...

I am happy with my current screen size. Played with larger phones and did not care for them.

I don't really get the point of 4g phones.
So you can reach your monthly limit faster?
I have unlimited data, and I truthfully don't have any speed issues with my 3gs. I can watch Netflix and listen to Pandora without any issues, I occasionally DL a movie or TV show, or even stream from veetle.com, all without issue.

Better GPS system, not sure what you mean by that. My GPS will pinpoint me within 10 feet of my actual location, and that is the older 3gs.
Or are you referring to a better navigation system?

I agree about a better GPS system (built-in turn-by-turn would be nice). That's a software upgrade though, which could be added later. I was thinking more along the lines of hardware.

I don't think Apple will move to a much bigger screen. Lots of people don't want a screen larger than 4" (myself included), just because it means a larger device.

By all means, please do go on. You only mentioned two things besides what I already mentioned.

I never actually used more than 2GB, but I see the appeal. Saw some dude with a droid charge pulling speeds I get at my home wifi (1 MB/s) which is insane for on the go.

As with the screen, yeah it could be bigger.

But otherwise, what the heck were you guys expecting exactly?

Samsung galaxy S II, add dual core cpu, add .3" and further reduce the ppi on the already streched 800 x 480 screen, keep practically everything else the same including that same body shape = EVERYONE LOVES IT

Incredible 2: Update to a better single core, add what 256mb of ram, nothing else = Everyone still loves it.

iphone 4S, add dual core, better camera, keep IPS and small frame = OMG APPLE SUCKS NEVER GOING TO BUY IT. I mean this is still more than the garbage that was the 3GS (yeah 3GS users, I'm a hater, I had a 3G at the time and a 4 now)
