    I seem to be stuck in deciding, I need a long lasting phone and iPhone 4 has been around for a long time so is it worth getting an iPhone 4 or 4S?

    Is the iPhone 5 not an option? If not, I would get the 4S. It is still a super capable phone.

    Definitely the 4S if the 5 is not an option.

    I cannot afford an iphone 5, which is why 4 or 4s is what I was considering, 4S is what my boyfriend keeps telling me to get, I just want a long lasting one and if 4S is no danger of outdating anytime soon, then thats the one I will get

    4S just made a year old last month where as the 4 will be 3 years old in June 2013.

    Definitely 4S.

    As you mentioned the 4 is an entire product cycle older than the 4S and therefore will be phased out of OS updates sooner than the 4S.

    I just added my sister onto me and my wife's shared data plan and got her a 4S. She wanted to switch from her clunky MetroPCS Android phone and has a mountain of accessories for her iPod Touch using the old 30-pin connector.

    The 4S takes advantage of all of the great features of iOS6 such as voice turn by turn in Maps and panorama mode in the Camera app that the iPhone 4 does not do. Not to mention Siri is only for the iPhone 4S and up.

    4S. The speed difference is really worth it.

    Plus Best Buy will be selling them for $50 on 12/16. This is for all carriers.

    What do you mean 7 years?

    The 4S has twice the speed, 7 times better graphics, 8MP camera, 1080p recording and Siri.

    If the 5 is out of the question then get the 4S.

    If you care about battery life, get the 4. The 4S has the lowest battery life out of all 3 latest iPhones, including the 5...With the 4 having the longest.

    iPhone 4 is outdated, get the 4S. Very good and capable phone.

    Both are great phones. The 4s is the obvious choice of the two though

    4S will hold you down long enough. Don't get the 4.
