    I have come to the moment when I realize I will be coming over to my first iPhone and finally leaving android.

    Now here is my dilema, do I go ahead and get the 4s or do I wait for the 5 or whatever the next iphone is gonna be?

    Any suggestions or comments from people coming from android?

    If you need a new phone now get the 4s, if the phone you have now works fine and can last another half year or so then stick with what you have and get whatever the new iphone is called.

    I'm in the same boat. Just get the best phone on the market right now. When the 5 comes out, buy it off contract and sell your 4S to offset the costs. One thing that people coming from Android need to realize, is that iPhones maintain a ridiculous resale value.

    Opus and I both switched from the Galaxy Nexus to a 4S and even with me still missing some Android aspects, you couldn't pay me to switch - I was just offered $225 and a Nexus for this and I turned it down.

    Like Wildo6882 said iPhones retain great resale value.... Where as I just lost $100+ on selling my Nexus

    As far as what I like vs Android devices I've had:

    I love being able to click a date that is in an email sent to my iphone and it automatically puts it on my calendar.

    I love the over all size of the iPhone. I thought I would miss the 4.65" screen and not once have I missed it yet.

    I love the clarity of the display.....this display simply cannot be beat it is just amazing.

    I love the camera, especially compared to my prior Android devices. The Nexus was horrible but this iPhone....WOW

    Siri is also very cool, not really an advantage though over Android, just an nice extra to have.

    I made the jump last month from a BB Storm2.
    And boy am I glad. Can't imagine having to wait until the fall.

    So I say, go ahead, jump!

    Good Luck

    Depends on if you are willing to wait until fall. That is a long time away.

    This is what I would do. It's what I probably will do with my 4S when the next one comes out.

    I would say if you can wait, to wait. But if you can't (and I don't blame you) then go get the 4S.

    Go ahead and make the jump. Well worth it. And, you can always sell the 4s to offset the cost of the new one coming in fall.

    I agree.

    I would caution against purchasing a 4s now if you do not have to even if you plan to sell it later. Thousands of other people will be doing the same thing when the new device gets released. This will make reselling more difficult and bring down the value of the old deice. So, hold off if you can.

    I completely disagree that a lot of people selling their 4S to get the next iPhone is going to bring down the price or make them hard to sell. People are still selling (and getting) over $300 for an iPhone 4 16gb. That phone is almost 2 years old. You can't find another 2 year old phone selling that high. Most high end Android phones don't go that high 6 months after release. A used 4S in mint condition will still get you a good chunk of a new iPhone paid for.

    Agreed. When comparing the sales of the 4S along with Android devices of similar age on eBay, the resale value of the 4S blows them all away.

    OP, I would go with the 4S now as others have said. Why wait another 8 months when you can be using a iPhone now? Keep the device that you have now, just before the new iPhone comes out you can put your 4S up for sale and use your old device temporarily while you wait.

    Half a year is a long time to be without an iPhone :/

    I'd consider buying a used iPhone 4, it's really not much worse than 4S and you can get it for half the price. Then switch to 5 once it's out, and sell the 4, without losing much.

    Just got the 4s 64GB at upgrade pricing and planning to sell it to hopefully mostly pay for the new iPhone later this year! I'd say the best way to go.

    I'm in the same boat. My upgrade comes up April 1st on Sprint. I can't decide whether to keep using my launch day evo and wait on the next iphone or go for the 4s. The evo is my first smart phone experience so I really want to try ios and and see the differences for my self.
