    Hello everyone! Well for starters I'm sure ya'll get a ton of these threads, but I really need the help! I cannot decide if I should buy a iPhone 4S or 5. I will be buying off eBay, since I have almost $400 in eBay gift cards, I want to use them against the purchase. If I go for a 4S, then I most likely will buy the 64GB so in January 2014 I can get a decide resale value. I've used a 4S on Verizon (sister has one) and my impressions were "sis the 3G is so slow....". I know that's Verizon's fault not Apple's, but still. On the flip side though, how many of you are willing to spend $900 to $1100 for a iPhone 5 in 32GB? I mean that's a lot to me, but if I do buy it, I will keep it till 2015, and if its factory unlocked I'll keep it till we switch to Sprint in 2015 maybe even use it longer..... Other than LTE, what benefits would I notice in real world usage? Like is the iPhone 5 worth the massive double to triple the price increase? Should I just buy a cheapo android phone and wait for the iPhone 5 prices to come down? What would you do? I sold my Galaxy S3 and need a phone for work and so my family won't bother me about not having a phone....which they do so much :(

    Thanks!

    The iPhone may not have the best specs, but the OS is unmatched IMO. I've used android since the OG Droid days....

    Okie dokie, much appreciated! Now why did you rate the S3 so highly? I read through your past posts and you seem to own a iPhone 5? That confuses me.....
