    morning all! I have been on android the past 2 and a half years, just changed to sprint from Verizon last week, and I had no intentions on leaving android until.. 2 nights ago when I was with a friend who had a iphone 4s, and I played around with it, and I fell in love with it. I am a tech guy so I know the 4S isn't the latest and greatest, but I feel it could be the phone for me, i have the photon 4g lte right now but am not happy with it, so i am going to target mobile today to exchange it.. for maybe the 4s?

    would i be making a good decision getting the 4s? pros/cons?

    thanks for any and all's advice. i have never used iphone before btw.

    i think so but just curious why not go with the 5? that should hold you off for a couple of years, or more, if needed regarding staying up to date with upcoming firmwares

    unless it is a money issue..

    Indeed, it is and I enjoy it so much that I opted to skip the iPhone 5.

    The 4s is a great device, but like BLINK said if you can scrounge up the extra $100 then the 5 will last you longer. Of course saying that there are still a lot of people floating around with the 3gs

    what ever choice you make you wont disappointed.

    If you can save up the $100, the battery life and 4G are worth it for the 5.

    4s user here too, excellent device, and has specs very similar to the 5, so it makes for a great and cheaper option. My contract is up next February (2014), I am positive it will be fine until then and even past that time...

    4s is a great device and your right your not far behind from the 5 also when you jailbreak the 4s you will have the best of both worlds the customization of android and the solid os of apple

    I upgraded from a 4s to a 5, but wifey and son each still have a 4s. Theres little to nothing i cant do on the 4s, and every time I pick up Wifey's 4s, I'm a bit surprised by how solid it feels (it's a bit heavier, but in a good way), and I wonder a bit if Apple was right in arguing that the smaller form factor was better.

    So yes, the 4s is certainly still viable.

    I've had my 4s for a few months coming from a BB. It's a great device. Good luck.

    The 4S is still one of the best phones available! You would not be shut out by it. If I didn't have the 5 I would have the 4S.

    I'm a 4s user and have never had any issue with the phone and I use it constantly.

    I too jumped ship from Android to iPhone (4s) BACK to android and here I am again.. back to iPhone (4s) and it is just as awesome as it was when i had it initially. I hate I ever traded it when I did. Android kept me entertained but a new, bigger, badder device would come out every 1-2 months leaving me feeling behind the curve. lol. And broke. So I managed to trade my Razr Maxx for an iphone 4s. Do I miss LTE? Yes but the 5 has that and when I'm up for an upgrade I'll get that or maybe the 5s I hope you report back and let us know how you like it!

    Thumbs up for a jailbroken 4s. Thumbs down for this damned wi-fi problem with Netgear routers.

    You can't go wrong with a 4S. I like mine so much, that I haven't even downloaded iOS 6 yet.

    Im a longtime Android user who does not like iOS at all. The iPhone is just not able to give me what I want, Android gives me the freedom and functionality that im looking for from my device.

    That being said, that is just my personal preference. The iPhone 4s is a wonderful device (as is the 5) and I would never steer anyone away who prefers the iOS experience.

    But I would highly recommend that you steer clear of Sprint. They have the worst network that I have experienced. Horrible connection speeds and coverage in my area. They are not the company to be with. Your gonna have a great phone thats horribly held back by Sprint.

    The 4S is a very solid device. If you want a bit more speed and bigger display , by all means get the 5. But the 4S should suit you just fine.
