    At this point, would you rather own a stock iPhone5 on 6.3 or a jailbroken iPhone4S running 6.2?
    Both in excellent condition, both the same size GB.

    Not looking at the value difference, but rather the iPhone you would use, day to day.

    Can you clarify the reason why you've posed such a question ?

    Are you torn between the two ?

    My answer would be I'd stick with my ip5 and await the next jail-break.

    I'd rather have the jailbroken 4s, but admittedly I dislike the aluminum body on the 5.

    Stock iPhone 5. I already had it stock for five months (got it on launch day), and really liked it, so jailbreaking was just the icing on the cake.

    I like the design more on the 4 but the 5's hardware is quite unbeatable .

    I'm sure, if they kept the design for the 4 and implanted the 5 hardware it would be the ultimate phone for me.

    In the same process they would have more volume to increase the battery capacity instead of reducing space to the price of battery ...

    After using my iPhone 5 for quite a while now I'd forgotten how heavy the iPhone 4s was until I used the one I gave to my son.

    That said the iPhone 4 / 4s build exudes quality.

    Hmm , what do you mean ? It exudes quality but in the same sentence you judge the weight ?

    I'd forgotten how weighty it was which in my eyes lends 'weight' to the quality of the workmanship and materials invested into it.

    I'd say its the opposite . Reducing weight but still improving the hardware greatly is to me an excellent craftsmanship.

    Rather have stock iphone 5.. After having the ip5 and jail broken for a few months now I can't imagine going back to the heavier and smaller 4s even for jailbreaking. Compared to a friends 4 jailbroken phone..I like how my 5 makes the jailbreaking look more sleek. Lol

    That's the beauty of choice and what ticks your wants and needs boxes.

    I moved up to the iPhone 5 and like it for what it is.

    It just took a little while to get used to the difference in weight !

    I'm very happy with my jailbroken iPhone 5 running iOS 6.1.2.

    You don't agree with me?? :confused:

    so wait, you think that it requires more effort and talent to put something worse in a bigger box than put something great and better into a smaller one?

    Hehe. :D

    If you buy an iPhone 5 now its most likely going to be 6.1.2 or lower so your fine to JB.

    Having owned both I prefer the 4S and actually went back to it.
    The 4S is a more solid phone and does everything the 5 can.
    Also, the 5 bends way too easily...

    How did you get your signature to work? Mine says disabled and I don't see a way to enable it.
