this thread can be deleted because im not getting a iPhone 4 8gb after all.
Do you honestly believe anyone here can answer that question? How would any of us know. It may come with 5.1 or an older iOS version. good luck with your new phone.
It might come with the newest iOS version but no ones knows for certain.
It depends on how long it has been sitting on the shelf in the store.
Why don't you go with the 4s by going with the 4 you will be behind the curve when the new one comes out later this year. Basically where the iPhone 3gs is currently.
Not everyone can afford/needs the 4S
I recently got a new iphone as well. Got mine off Craigslist, but I went for the 4, without the s. As far as I can tell, Siri is the main difference, as well as the better camera. I can live without both - don't need/wouldn't use Siri, and I have a DSLR for my 'serious' shots, and the 5mp of the iphone 4 is fine for those fun/casual quick pics a phone camera should be used for. The other major difference I guess is the processor, which in all fairness could lead to a more fluid and snappier day to day user experience, so that's valid...but I haven't noticed any real lag or freeze-ups with the 4 yet. All in all, it is worlds smoother than the Android phones I'm coming from.
Anyway, I'm just saying, considering how similar the 4 and the 4s are, I don't think you're exactly taking a HUGE loss by going with the original 4, it's a very close cousin.
The 4S actually runs faster and smoother than the iPhone 4. Noticeably so when you have a lot on the phone, or you cycle through apps a lot. The difference is especially huge when you take games into account.
Yes, as I said I do give credit to the superior processor for enabling smoother performance. And it is supposed to have better graphics capabilities for gaming. The 4s is undeniably the superior device, no argument there. I was just saying that if price is a factor in your decision, as it is for many, then the similarities between the 2 make buying the 4 a reasonable option as it is still a modern and relevant device. For example, a 32gb iphone 4 vs. a 16 gb iphone 4s was preferable to me, and cost me less. And I was on a budget, so this worked out.
Plus, since it's kind of mid-release-cycle, I am saving the big splurge for the iphone 5.
Congratulations its a good phone
