    I've never spent so much on accessories and apps as I have since I got the 4s! Android was definitely a more cost effective OS. Sure the quality is better with iOS...but it definitely comes with a cost.

    That's my only complaint. Any other previous Android users feeling the same? Aside from that I'm enjoying my iPhone.

    Nope, haven't felt that at all really. But, the only accessory I've really purchased (if it can be called that) is an OtterBox Defender. Apps are about the same in price, so no difference there (unless it's a more expensive app). Otherwise, I'm pleased with my 4s and I came from a mint condition Nexus S 4g on Sprint to the 4s on Sprint (love unlimited data).

    My father in law got a cheap android phone because he refused to pay money for a phone when he already pays a monthly bill to the phone company. I tried to tell him that saving a few hundred dollars wasn't worth all of the headaches, but he didn't listen.

    Now, he has a Huweii Android phone which is confusing to use, hard to figure out, and it shuts down every so often for no reason.

    With Apple, you are guaranteed to get a great product which is intuitive to use. If it isn't great, they will fix it without question. I have had every iPhone since the 3G, and am now Mac user because of it. The extra cost is justified.

    P.S. You can buy accessories on EBay for very cheap. I have bought a bundle 5 chargers and sync cables for $7 shipped. Don't pay high prices at Apple or Best Buy...

    I buy a lot of my cases from Amazon because they are usually cheaper.

    I'm curious as to what accessories you're buying? Cases? That's simply cosmetic. People who buy
    a lot of cases tend to buy them no matter the phone they're using.

    I just have purchased quite a few cases and then a car kit. So the accessories are my own fault. But to the guy that said there is no difference in app prices...you're completely wrong. I'm not knocking iOS. It's funny to see OS fans band together and get defensive. I'm an unbiased smartphone user. I enjoy both systems equally so I offer unbiased opinions. The feeling I've expressed have been expressed by my customers as well.

    I agree...quality comes with a higher cost. And the quality of the apps are definitely higher. But seriously guys...let's not be so biased.

    Most of the accessories that I purchased for my 4S came from eBay or directly from the company using a discount code that I got from doing a Google search for one. Can't say that any of them were more expensive than the ones I got for my previous Android devices.

    I find myself spending more money on my 4s than the Droid devices I've owned I feel thats because the selection of accesories is so much greater for the iPhone device coupled with me always having to change my case almost weekly.

    I'm not being biased at all. Most of the apps I purchased the Market when I was on Android were selling for $.99 or close to that. Most of those same apps that are available for purchase on the App Store for iOS (like the ones I bought on Market) were the same price is all I was getting at.

    Yes, there are some that are more expensive on iOS, but my comment wasn't meant to be biased.
