    I currently have an iPhone 3g and I'm deciding whether I should:
    :apple: get the 4s
    :apple: see how long the 3g can last (it is slowly dying. Can't load webpages using 3g anymore :( )
    :apple: Get the iPhone 4 at a cheaper price and wait for the iPhone 5
    :apple: Get an android but I love the iPhone :(

    I too have an iPhone 3G, so i feel your pain. Here is what i'd do:

    1) Get it
    2) It's already dead, dump the 3G already
    3) The iPhone 4 is not worth it anymore
    4) iOS > Android, but device wise... yes Android phones like the GS2 are looking great.

    I currently use a Droid X and 2 people in my family have a Droid Charge. I'm pretty sick of Android and the constant crashing/lagging and it's the main reason I want to switch. The touchscreens even on newer Android phones don't seem to be as fluid as the iPhone's touchscreen. Samsung's super AMOLED screens are definitely vibrant but one thing I noticed (even compared to my Droid X) is that the screen almost looks fuzzy. Think about sweating and then holding your phone up to your face and then letting the sweat dry without wiping it off. Not sure if they all look like that but the 2 Droid Charge's I've seen do. If you absolutely want to try an Android phone I would definitely wait to see what the Nexus Prime is like next Tuesday.

    Just wait for the iPhone 5. That's got to be the best approach.

    There are too many variables to just blame the phone its self.

    There's another option, I bet a ton of people will be upgrading from iphone 4... and you could pick one of those up for cheap and then wait for 5?

    Get it. No, actually don't. Sorry, I did mean 'get it'.

    Just do it and put yourself out of your misery otherwise its likely to be a very slow and painful wait for the iP5. Besides, the sooner you start the contract (if you go down this route), the sooner it'll finish and then you'll have the option of picking up the iP5 or waiting, for not too long hopefully, for the iP6 (or iP5S). That's my theory anyway.

    Thanks everyone :) I might consider getting the 4s, if there is a good plan at Telstra.
