    I'm selling my Galaxy S3 tomorrow for £330 locally. Here is my dilemma.

    Do I buy a local iPhone 4S for about £270 locally.

    Or do I add £200 to my £330 sale and buy the iPhone 5 sim free from Apple.

    Which to choose and why...

    Since you are asking in an iPhone forum, my guess is that most people would tell you to get the iPhone 5.

    You are going to miss the s3. That iPhone screen will really seem tiny after using the s3.

    It wasn't that big of a deal for me. I could actually read the text on my 4S better.

    Why you selling your Samsung S3. It is better than iPhone 4S. I advising you that can't sell Samsung S3.

    I have a red att gs3 and I am selling it since I bought the 5. However I would be keeping it over the 4s without a doubt.

    I have both a Galaxy S3 and an iPhone 5. I don't see the point of selling the S3 for an iPhone 4S unless you're seriously strapped for cash and MUST have an iOS device. Get the iPhone 5 or keep the S3. Don't bother with the 4S.

    get the IP 5.


    the 4S is an excellent phone but if you've got 330 quid now to spend might as well go the extra mile and get the newest phone and dont regret it down the line when and if you want the IP 5 you'll have to pay full price.

    The 5 will hold its value longer...

    As others have said be sure you really want the smaller iphone screen before you sell the S3.

    Simple.

    Samsung S3 > iPhone 4s

    IPhone 5 = Samsung S3

    Samsung Note 2 > iPhone 5 + Samsung S3

    Note 2 has the best display Samsung has ever made and fast quad core. Phone of the year material.

    Keep your S3 until Apple gets their act together on quality...

    I don't think Samsung is any better. My first S3 had a very crooked and partly extruding home button. The second came with a battery that wouldn't charge. Third one was acceptable.

    It didn't feel terribly different going from a galaxy note to an iP5 but going back (to look up a contact today) was WEIRD. I'd go iPhone 5 though, it's out so you might as well get it to stay up to date longer. Two things make me say this: larger screen and ridiculously faster specs. Everything about it is double over the 4S... Just a guess, but I'd say it won't be long before developers are really taking advantage of that.

    Hmm I am very torn. I will have £330 from the sale of my Galaxy S3. I can purchase an iPhone 4S for the same or less than this.

    Going to an iPhone 5 will cost £199 exactly. Debating whether it is worth it. Any S3 owners in the same boat?

    Lol wut?

    You should be able to get the 4s for less than the ip5 bro. I'd go for the 5 though.

    I'm an s3 owner and no, I have no desire to switch. 5 is better than 4s and you are currently without a phone. Seems like a no brainer.

    I gave up the S3 for my iPhone 5. While I did enjoy the big screen I'm really not missing it. I love the ip5.

    I upgraded from a 4S to a 5 and I can tell you that besides the obvious cosmetic differences (thiner, longer, lighter, aluminum back) there is a HUGE difference in speed and the display is noticeably more vivid.
    Get the 5...you won't regret it.

    I sold my S3 to buy an Iphone 5 as well. Very happy with it! I love the build quiality and the fact that I can operate the phone with just one hand. Sure the S3 screen is great when at home sitting on your couch or something, but on the move the Iphone is more handy to me.

    4s is also great but the 5 is really fast, will hold it's value better, if you can miss the 199 pounds...go for it. If you can use the 199 pounds really good for something else, the 4s is still a great phone. So get the 5 unless you have a really good destination for your 199 quid now.
