    OR
    2)should i just keep it and sell it when the next generation of iphone enter the marked??

    Which solution would make me lose less money - ?? And what would you do???

    I think what you are asking is what's the best "Future Proof" move? If it was me, I'd sell it while it still retains some value. When the 5 is released you are going to be better of with a 4S in your hand than a 4.

    always keep the newest, as the value of electronics drops quickly over times.

    ..hmm..

    Yea i know that - but even my IP4 is still int the box i will lose some money on selling it to a private person. After that i have to use maybe +100$ more to get the IP4s - so you think thats worth it when i am planning to sell around sep?.

    Well one thing with iPhones is that overall they actually have excellent resell value compared to phones from the Android camp.

    As for your question, if I were you, I wouldn't sell the 4 to get a 4S. The differences are minor, no one really actually uses Siri IRL, and I find the 4 gets slightly better battery life in real world use. Unless there's some killer app you need a 4S for (which I can't really think of any right now), the 4 should well hold you over to until the 5.
