I'm debating about updating from my 3GS which is falling apart, or just nursing it out. I'm probably going to have to upgrade soon.

The 3GS wasn't referred to as a refresh yet the 4S is way more of a significant improvement over the 4 than the 3GS was over the 3G.
Do you get tired of saying the same thing over and over again? Mind you, this isnt an insult to you. Its just I see your posts on every apple thread there is and you say the same thing over and over...

OT: If people want the phone, I say let them get money flowing in the economy. <5% of those preorders (I am guessing) actually looked into this whole debated of whether or not it is worth it. Too bad really, as everyone should carefully evaluate such a purchase. Interesting read though OP

I'm considering switching to an iphone, at least they seem to work as intended even if they aren't the latest and greatest. I'm on my third replacement droid, I had two droid X and now an X2 and they are literally garbage. If I didn't sign the contract I would have switched back to my old flip phone that didn't even have a camera. Verizon finally carries iphone so its looking like a good option, because I'm so tired of:

Open an app? Freeze.
Open camera? Black screen then freeze.
Try to use GPS? Gotta shut the phone down and turn it back on for the sat to work.
Want to browse a webpage with 4 bars of 3G? You can't, cuz its stuck on a white screen.

I'm jealous of my friends who have iphones, even their sliders work smoothly without all the stuttering.

Everyone has their criticisms, problems, and raves about each phone and platform. Some people like ios better, some people like windows mobile better, and some people like droid better. Who really cares what another person buys? Most people that complain about people buying the opposite platform most likely don't and never have owned both, just like the whole osx/windows pc flame war. It seems that people tend to flame others that don't buy what they would. Same could go for anything purchase, such as cars. Should I flame someone for buying a Prius because I drive huge lifted vehicles and luxury sedans that get horrendous mileage? no.

Do I have an iphone 4? Yes. Will I upgrade to the 4S? Yes, it's only a few hundred $ and giving my 4 (which is in pristine condition) to a parent since I want the better camera and the A5. She'll be happy with the 4 since she has a 3g that's in horrible condition and probably won't even notice the difference between the two. Do I want a droid? no, because I've had 4 iphones (original, 3g, 2x 4s) and they work with my macs flawlessly. What do I do on my phone? Talk, text, take randoms pics, use tapatalk, play angry birds, and use evernote. Pretty much ANY smart phone on the planet can do that. Why am I buying an iphone 4s? because I just feel like it.

Indeed, I do like how it looks as well.

Mmm no, only when I have to do it to the same person over and over again. I hate misinformation, and haters love it.

Why bother posting when something already sums up my view on this matter.

Link edited with "xx" instead of "tt" due to cursing in the video.

That's like exactly my thoughts. Aneurysm.

Honestly, this is exactly why I am afraid to even try an Android phone. Don't want to get stuck with something that doesn't work properly for two years. I hear lots of people saying that these sorts of things don't happen on Android phones, but there are still people saying they do. I'd just rather not take the chance, and go with something I know I will enjoy using, and that will be problem-free.
