    I was an iphone 4 user for about 17 months.

    I was looking for iphone 5 but the announcement of iphone 4s made me buy the phone of google : galaxy nexus.

    This phone seemed better in specs but in daily experience for me as a user, it is way below the expectations.

    I am now thinking about 4s, would you please give me some of the most important new features of it. Otherwise, I might stick with the nexus until iphone 5 release.

    It's really not much different than the iPhone 4 to be honest (assuming you were running iOS5). The camera, reception (arguably), and Siri are really the only improvements.

    I really like iCloud and how it syncs all my photos to iPhoto, but other than that, it really doesn't do too much for me. I guess backing up my app data and a couple others things are useful too.

    If you're not familiar with iOS 5, notifications are vastly improved and the iOS speed (along with the 4S hardware) makes for a pleasantly quick UI.

    The Galaxy Nexus also backs up app data.
