I figured. They always do new releases in Sept/Oct, I think i'm officially up in October, but Verizon usually lets you upgrade a few months early anyway.

Technically in the Iphone 4s, the "s" stood for Siri, which is something the Iphone 5 already has. They'll likely come out with a minor tweek in the Iphone 5 and call it something new, but at that point, I strongly recommend the Iphone 5 or the Iphone 4s. I currently have the Iphone 5 and it is fantastic.

I have the 4s. If i'm going to get a 5, i'm probably just going to get the 5x.

you have the 4s and are due for an upgrade already? Wow, I didn't realize it came out that long ago. I've played around with the 4s and currently own a 5, the differences are pretty much nil. the screen is a little bigger and the headphone jack is at the bottom. one thing to keep in mind is that the 5 has a different plug than all the other Iproducts, so you'll need to upgrade all of that as well. Luckily for me the Iphone 5 was the first Iproduct I've ever purchased, so that upgrade didn't effect me quite as much.

Yeah I got the 4s 2 octobers ago. Craziness. I think it was out for less than a month when I got it. Not looking forward to all of the new plugs/adapters, but i'm aware of them.

the 5 is a royal PITA with regards to the plug. We had to buy a new usb cord for the truck, new car charger for our car, and a spare usb to keep at work for her to charge.

Yeah I'd need to get one for work and one for home, so that would be annoying.

Rumors (from a couple of sources) say summer.

The iphone is a big phone to me. Bigger than I really want actually.

I can't stand iPhones but their tablets are awesome. The phones seem way too small compared to some of the Androids, but they have the best touch response that I have seen.

I don't believe that anyone who has used both an Android and an iPhone actually thinks that an Android is just as good. Say that you like the screen size more or that the apps are better or something, but as far as actual functionality, there is not a comparison.

I've used both, and I think they both do pretty much the same thing. There isn't just "one" Droid like there is an Iphone, but most of the newer Droids are on par if not better than the newest Iphone, IMO. I don't see the big difference in functionality to be honest.
