    Hi all,
    I am an android user (note 2) planning to move to iphone. Wanted to know which phone is better 4s or 5?
    My usage would include a few phone calls a day, email sync, texts, little of Facebook and twitter. Would also be taking a considerable amount of pics, and using maps once a while.
    I intend to use the device for at least 1.5 to 2 years.
    (Due to budget constraints, I am planning to buy a used iphone which is under warranty.personally, I like iphone5 but apple says no warranty extension once default 1 year warranty goes out. So I am a bit confused. Also read in forums that 4s is facing many issues like wifi graying out and battery drain with ios 7.0.4. )

    Please advise.

    My friend just bought a 4s for $.99 from ATT. I play with it quite a bit and it handles apps and functions just fine from what I can tell. If you're looking fora phone to last 2 years though, you may want the 5 since there will be more iOS updates that may not work well with the 4s.

    The 5 hands down

    Reason coming from the Note 2 the i5 screen will work better for you and it's a very capable solid device that will be supported a lot longer than the 4s

    The iPhone 4S is a fine device. However, if you're planning to use the device for a couple of years I would go with the iPhone 5.

    If you buy a 4S now then i feel the screen size change would be way drastic for you considering you use a Note 2. Plus 4S will not receive updates beyond iOS 8. So it would be wise to go for the 5.

    If you can afford the 5, go for it. If you get the 4s, it's still a great product. I loved mine.

    iphone 5, it will have a much longer lifespan than the 4s (ie you'll feel it is still 'relevant')

    I am not exaggerating but as an "ex" android user and after using iPhone for just 3 days, here are my observations.

    I don't face any lags, no apps crashing, no crappy camera..the list is long...
    I am surprised why do people bash iPhones on various forums etc.
    I have used WP8-lumia 920, android -note 2, galaxy s3 etc etc.. I was tired of same crap again and again...

    All I can say is I have fallen in love with my iPhone..and will never turn back..
    Apple plz add one more name to the list of your admirers

    #love - Peace
