    the better GPU and CPU may not be realized yet, but in my opinion, towards the end of 4.X and with the JB, the i4 started to feel sluggish. I think the camera and HSPDA are amazing too.

    Not a chance. The faster processing, the camera, the integration of Siri... all make it worth it.

    I had the siri app on my 4. This is sooo much better.

    I would stick with my 4S over my 4, Siri is good but not my favourite part of the phone

    I just want to try it. Im sure i wont actually use it as much as id think.

    Having it available on my iphone 4 will be nice. The 4S isnt enough to make me upgrade. I have a tight budget right now, so I have to think about my purchases. Otherwise I would have had it already.

    That said, if Siri & the built in trxt dictation runs properly on the 4, ill be a happy camper!!

    I was siriously on the fence about the 4s but decided to keep it. It feels much faster then the 4. I'm hoping the jb comes soon though.

    it doesn't say no jailbreaking required. It said that he didn't need the iPhone 4S to be JB'd to get the software required to make siri work on other iOS devices - which WILL need to be jailbroken.

    I have yet to use the 4s but I would probably be more inclined to keep my 4 and not upgrade if I could get Siri to work WELL on the iPhone 4. Not enough of a change to make me sign up for another 2 years when a totally different phone may be just a year away. I also will not spend $600 for an unsubsidized phone. Don't have the free money for that.

    Nope not a chance of going back to my 32gb 4. CPU/GPU, Camera and HSPD+ is worth it to me plus 64gb. Not even questioning the upgrade. Also looking forward to the next iPhone too and will upgrade to that with out reservations also.

    They will find a way to stop it, then developers will find a way to get it back. Its a never ending process, just like jailbreaking and rooting devices.

    Don't really care for Siri one way or the other, at least not yet. It played absolutely no roll in my decision to buy a 4S

    I thought of exchanging for Android.

    But then I realized that I didn't get the iPhone for the newest features, best specs, or most customization...

    I got it because it is easy to use. Sure, it is locked down... But I like my phone to be a phone. I used to build computers and if I feel like spending hours getting things just right for a (small) marginally better experience I'd just get back into building computers.

    I like the fact that it generally has the better apps all in one easy location, has the best music player, the best camera, and the best ease of use. It is guaranteed quality and the support is better than any other Android company thus far.

    Just my opinion.

    Siri was the decision maker for me. It's so damn obnoxious I avoided the 4S. If this is the future of Apple, then at least I had a great time while it lasted. Suddenly anything else looks better. Siri sucks.

    Nope the camera and speed will keep me on the 4S. Only thing is I wish the camera had an option to switch down to 720P to save storage and battery life if you needed to...Staying at 8MP for still photos is fine, but sometimes you just don't need all the extra pixels in a video.

    If I had the cash I'd upgrade just for the A5 with 64GB, my 32GB iP4 is running low on disk space.
