    I've had my 4S for nearly a week now and I'm sorry to say it's going back. The screen is horrible beside my iPhone 4 - washed out and sepia and the battery life is worse than my Android Incredible S - which is also faster and has things like proper text flow.

    So, I'll stick with my 4 for now and await the real iPhone 5.

    Do you promise not post anymore with your decisions that mean absolutely nothing to the rest of us?

    Why not get a replacement? A restore fixes the battery issue if what you did was an upgrade (I haven't had any issue at all, mine's fine), and my screen is nicer than on my 4. :/

    Many people got the same 'Yellowgate' problem like you do. As for the Battery, turn off the location-based reminders and iCloud when you don't need it... and playing with your assistant is another reason for the fast battery drain.

    It's a real pity that some of you guys have forgotten how to behave in an online environment. Come on - civility costs nothing.

    It seems you have forgotten or completely missed the two huge threads discussing these very topics. Why couldn't they be posted in there?

    Although normally I'd agree with you, in this case I think you asked for these responses. The problems you are referring to can almost only be attributed to a defective phone, yet rather than exchange it you decide to return it, put in a dig about the "real" iPhone 5, and tell us you are keeping your 4. You reap what you sow.

    And my 4S beats up your 4 any day of the week...

    Wow...some people are dickish this morning....lay off the guy...

    It sounds like you took his decision to return his phone rather than exchange it personally.:confused:

    Were you insulted by it? How is mentioning the next iPhone a "dig" at you (or other members of this forum). A lot of people have stated their intention to pass on the 4S and wait for the next iPhone. Do those people make you feel insulted as well?

    Ease up Fanboy. :rolleyes:

    And this:

    Really? I mean c'mon...REALLY? Grow up FFS....
