Still using a 4S?
I've owned a iPhone 5 and 5c at different times in the past. My curiosity and fickle nature when it comes to smartphones led me to sell them and try out other phones on other platforms.
My mother recently upgraded from a 5s to a 6s Plus, which means my step dad got her 5s and - for helping them backup and restore their info to their new phones, I got my step-dad's 4s.
I had been using a Motorola Moto G 2nd Gen running Cyanogenmod 13 but decided to use the 4s as my daily driver.
And you know what? It's actually a pretty good phone!
Considering it was released nearly 5 years ago and is running the latest version of iOS, I'd say that's a pretty amazing return on investment for a smartphone. I seriously doubt anyone still using a 5-year-old Android phone can say the same.
I can't believe how small it is! I'm missing the screen real estate of my Moto G, but the compact size is actually kind of nice. I don't feel like I'm carrying around a tablet in my pocket and I can easily use it with one hand.
The build quality and design is just fantastic. Its solidly built and still feels like a premium device, especially when compared to my plasticky Moto G.
Surprisingly, I can still do everything need on the 4S. It has all the apps I want. It's a bit laggy at times, but it holds its own vs my Moto G, which is newer and has lag issues itself.
My past stints with newer iPhone models didn't keep me hooked. Ironically, using this 4S might actually do the trick.
I know it won't be getting iOS 10. And it does lack features I want (like hardware encryption and Apple Pay). But all things considered, the 4s still seems like a great little phone even 5 years later.
Anyone out there still using an iPhone 4s?
