    I just upgraded to the 4S from the 4. Looks exactly the same layout as if you were to get the iOS update. Now onto the processor, I've noticed a huge difference in speed my web pages open extremely fast everything just loads perfectly. Camera is amazing you will only notice once u open the pictures on a computer and appreciate them more. Siri is great add on but I live in Canada so maps and locations arnt available which is a downfall but I'm sure there will be an update. For me, definatley worth the upgrade. Once again it's extremely fast BUY ONE!!!

    This guy is an idiot. Do not get a 4S from a 4. You will miss out on the real release next summer. iPhone 5 is where its at.

    Camera alone was worth the upgrade for me. Love my 4s

    Sounds like someone is jealous they couldnt get a 4s LOL.
    Just sell the 4s for a 5 like I sold my 4 for my 4s. Really not that hard.

    I'm surprised I did it, but I upgraded... And I'm happy. Things are so much faster. The A5 is what I mostly care about. Everything from opening Evernote, to loading Apple.com, has become way easier

    If i was tied to a contract i would wait. But i buy my phones outright and use money from the sale of the previous iPhone to offset the cost. From that standpoint it was worth it for me.

    The phone is faster, camera is yet again best in class, reception is improved and Siri pretty good.

    The snappy nature of the 4s phone is much welcome over the 4. Could tell immediately. Zooming and scrolling in safari is amazing now

    Definitely worth it. The speed bump is very noticeable. I tether a lot, so it's really going to shine in that respect.

    Running speedtest app I'm averaging 4-5 mbps down and 1mbps up.

    Web pages load quite a bit faster.

    Why can't somebody get both? I went from a 32GB iPhone 4 to a 64GB iPhone 4S and for Siri alone, it's been worth it. However, the real magic can be just in the pure speed. It's not a day night difference but the snappiness of it is fantastic. I also take a ton of pictures so a boosted camera is always welcomed.

    Also, I can now tell Siri to beam me up :D

    I'm eligible every year so it doesn't bother me a bit. I'll just sell this one and get the next like I have always done.
    And just how in the hell do you know he isn't eligible every year before you jump on here calling people idiots. God some of you people are jealous, sad, miserable vessels of hate.

    For those who say 3G doesn't switch off.

    does it stay on when you have wifi on?

    If you are looking for 64gb capacity, then yes.
    If you have money, then yes.
    If you wanna brag about the S. then yes but no one cares.

    Otherwise, I don't see why you need it. A5 dual core O EM GEE, 0.5 second faster...HOLY SMOKES...calm down nerds. And phones with more than 5 megapixels is a joke.. I have a few iPhone 4S ready for resell. For me, I rather make money than upgrade from my 4 but that is just me.

    It's faster than my iPhone 4; Siri is pretty nice. Reception is spot on. The camera is pretty good for a cell phone, and I really needed more space, so have a 64GB option was a major selling point for me.

    So I upgraded to an iPhone 4S… why would that mean I'm missing out on from the upgrade next year? :confused:

    Presumably, you won't get a qualifying price again for 16+ months, so if the next iPhone were to drop within 12 months you may or may not qualify, and if it drops in early Summer of next year you definitely will have to pay full price.
