    I'm a longtime Blackberry loyal user, went from the 9930 to 4S last November and haven't looked back. The 4S is a great device, solid all around. Love the simplicity of iOS and that everything just works. No more experimenting with different carrier OS's.

    I find the SIII to have poor signal on Verizon. I love the hardware, but greatly prefer the LCD on the HTC 1X to the SIII screen.

    In general, I find BB, Apple (only since the 4s lol) and Motorola have far superior signal strength. Samsung and HTC seem to put out inconsistent products in terms if signal, and that experience is only in Verizon for me. Maybe GSM is a different game.

    I need my phone to be a good phone first and foremost. The 5 has rocked in this area for me.

    I really had no issues with the signal strength. It was actually quite good.

    3 years? It's hard to keep an Android for 1 year because the market is saturated with them.

    True that's why I like how apple is running it one device a year with updates still running smooth

    That was a thought I was having Saturday when contemplating reactivating my 5...the support I'd have from Apple over time. The GSIII is great but with the Note II out and now the GSIV, how long before root is your only option for software updates. I'm over the rooting scene and see no purpose the JB my iPhone.

    Jailbreaking makes a world of a difference On your iPhone tho so many tweaks and apps to make it better its makes the iPhone worth it

    I'm a simple man and typically don't long for the tweaks when I'm using my iPhone. Every now and again I wish there was a quick way to launch right into the battery usage/standby stats but I get over it. Lol

    I just put my note 2 on ebay. I just don't use all of the features on the note. And I miss my iphone. Now that jailbreak is out I miss it even more. Lol I just hope that I don't regret going back to the iphone 5.

    I too jumped over from a blackberry 9930 to the 4 and now on the 4S. I'm not a fan of the oversized screens, although I secretly lust after them (love watching videos on my mobile device and there's something about the extra screen real estate that's pleasing to the eye)...I'm patienty waiting to see if the Z10 stacks up to my needs and then, MAYBE, I MIGHT make the switch. But until then, the 4S is a great handset for me. It does everything for me and then some! beauty and elegance in simplicity.

    I had the Note 2 as well. It is an awesome device but I certainly understand where you are coming from. I had to come back to iOS too. There were just a fe things that didn't work properly on Android that would drive me nuts. Had to go.

    The Galaxy S3 is a very nice phone. But some of us just prefer the iPhone 4s.
    Looked at the S3 the day I picked up my 4s, the S3 looked nice, but the Iphone 4s just seemed more solid to me.

    I have a free upgrade on my account for anything but an iPhone. I have to wait until September for that. I chose to get an iPhone off a friend. I still don't like android that much on my nexus tablet but its a good sturdy tablet.

    I came from a blackberry and if any of you know me from crackberry you know I've been a blackberry fan for years.

    Bb10 wasn't cutting it for me and my 9900 was dying. I figured iOS was my next option.

    So in reply to the op the 4s doesn't feel dated to me.

    In reply to the above posters. Gs3 is way better than a 4 but a 4s I feel is on par with a ga3. I could only imagine what a 5 would be like speed wise. I don't need one so I won't get one. I'm a practical kind if person.

    eve6er69 it's good to see you here on iMore. I was a longtime BB user too. I decided last year to give iOS a try. I bought a new 4S and haven't looked back. Enjoy your 4S and welcome to iMore!

    Mine is starting to hang & freeze for a few seconds here & there. From switching pages on the launcher screen (I.e. home screen) to sending messages.... We're talking 5 seconds or more. Unveil the new iphone so I can decide what to do, please.

    That doesn't sound right. My 4S was working as new on iOS 6. Maybe a restore may help?
