So, like the title says, is the 4 still worth buying in 2013? I've been using Android phones for more than a year, and I want something new. I don't want an iPod Touch 5 as many others have suggested simply because I don't want to. My choices are limited to the 4 and 4S (the 5 is just too freakin' expensive right now). These are the things that I would mainly be doing on the phone (in no particular order): Take and edit pictures for use on Facebook & Instagram Use chat apps such as Viber and KakaoTalk Play music Call and text Browse the web via Wi-Fi (I never use 3G as I'm almost always within Wi-Fi range anywhere I go) Very casual gaming (the likes of Temple Run *not TR2; I hate that sequel* and Angry Birds. I have a desktop, and I do most of my gaming on it) I rarely used any sort of maps or navigation in my previous phones, and Siri is practically useless where I live (Philippines). The 8MP camera, I noticed, doesn't really make a huge difference with regards to my needs (posting photos on FB and IG is all I ever do). Another thing that I consider a HUGE deciding factor is the price. Most second-hand iPhone 4's start at around $270, while the second-hand 4S's cost around $370. Is $100 worth it for the 4S with regards to my needs, or should I just stick with the almost-3-year-old iPhone 4? Will I really experience a big change in speed for $100? How "future-proof" is the 4 compared to the 4S? I want to get the 5 as soon as prices drop below the $400 line, but I'm afraid that that won't happen until after the 6 is released. Also, with regards to the speed and smoothness of the iPhone 4 on iOS 6.x.x, I've found that information varies. Some people say that their 4's stayed as fast as the day they bought it, while others say that their phones became annoyingly sluggish. I think this has to do with how the iPhone was updated (OTA or iTunes), but I don't know what to believe. I'm asking for help because this is going to be the first iPhone I will ever purchase. It's a big thing for me, and I don't want to kick myself in the butt later for making the wrong decision. I'm no expert, so I really would appreciate any help that I can get. Sorry for the long post. Thanks a whole bunch in advance!
