You might get a refurb unit, places like Gazelle buys from users, sell to insurance companies for replacementsI have the 4.
I regret getting it everyday.
I did an insurance claim yesterday so I should be getting a new one my Monday. (Not sure what I'm getting because the 16GB 4 & 4S have been discontinued almost a year)
Why didn't you wait for the 5c?Late adopter of a 4S - bought a brand new one on Thursday.
I came from a Touch 4th generation and Lumia 520.
Thought long and hard about whether to buy one - I hate making bad decisions and feeling buyers remorse - but after watching a few videos comparing the 4S in use to a 5S and 5C.. decided to sell both the above and buy the 4S.
Love the thing!
Obv not as snappy as the 5/5C/5S, but is faster than what I'm used to, and for general use as per videos watched it wasn't a night and day difference.
Buying the older generation makes this amazing piece of hardware affordable to me in the UK, starting with a smaller budget. And I figure, it worked in 2011 - and cost twice the price then - it does the same stuff now. Just shut your eyes and pretend it's 2011.. heh..
Prefer the form factor and build to later models IMO the construction quality is exceptional for a consumer device. Couldn't entertain a 5C for these reasons.
I will say that the Lumia is shocking value for money, and complaints are more of the Apple way of doing things than the device being dated. So some things are a bit meh, even compared to the £50 Lumia 520. The Windows OS desktop is light years ahead of the iPhones. IOS feels antiquated by comparison, and some things are a bit convoluted and less intuitive than Windows.. so WATCH IT Apple you have some serious competition there..
But alas, none of the music apps I use on IOS... (this is my main use of the device) are written for Android or Windows Phone OS.. so I'm trapped within the Apple Walled Garden.. and bought the best device I could afford heh...
I think Apple owners generally, seem willing to overlook a few weaknesses for the overall lush experience, and no other device puts pro grade music creation tools in pocket..
So yeah, using a 4S it's great...
