    Hi everyone,

    I need a bit of advice. I have basically been waiting for this release quite a number of months because I plan to purchase my first ever iPhone. However, like many it seems, I am a bit disappointed with the end result.

    So I currently have a bit of a dilemma. The iPhone 4s starts at £499 from the UK store, whereas the iphone 4 (8gb... cant see the 16gb anymore), starts from £429... I know what most of you would reply, for only £70 get the latest model. However, I have encountered a number of deals from a trusted seller, such as a mint conditioned 16gb iPhone 4 for £380. (I would have to worry about unlocking it though)

    What are your opinions for a first time buyer? Shop around for a good iphone 4 deal or does the iPhone 4S really deserve my money?

    I would appreciate your opinion. Thanks.

    Well those are sim free unlocked prices. It depends if that's what you want or you're willing to get a contract. On contract the prices should be lower.

    I would just put the extra cash and get a 4S...

    well by the same logic, why not pay an extra £49 and get a new iphone 4 rather than a mint condition iphone 4!
    for me its got to be NEW all day long, for me if i was willing to spend over £400 for a phone in the first place, i wouldnt mind putting the £70 to get the latest model
    £70 gets you:
    8mp camera
    A5 processor
    Siri
    1080p video recording
    bluetooth 4.0

    its now whether you feel that those features are worth the £70........
    for me they are :)
