You won't regret it. Give it at least a week and you WILL be addicted. I have yet to meet a new iPhone user that hasn't fallen in love with the phone.

COMPLETELY worth the upgrade if you have the option.
uh, who was an iphone hater? I've been pretty neutral and fair. I was, and still am, a fanboy hater.

And for the price You pay all i hear is about how crappy the Quaility of the phone is, Even here you guys complain about how junky it is, Sure its a little bit faster than the 4s the screen pops a bit more and you can see one more app on the home screen BIG DEAL Some one stated they are on their THIRD phone already, Seems to me the smart thing to do was to stick with the 4s and call it a day
Of course people will complain. That's how forums work. It is not junky, and you do actually sound jealous. The S3 is no champion of build quality. From the AndroidAuthority video- you drop it and it splits in half. I don't usually pull that card, but I don't know what's up with you.

It's not a little faster. The display is way more accurate than the 4S and the S3, and the phone is way faster than the 4S, and faster than the S3.

People who exchanged their phones multiple times are exceedingly picky. They aren't the typical breed of consumer, (e.g. someone who buys a Samsung product); Apple has spoiled its fanboys.

I went to the apple store by me and there were at least 40 of them hanging there. I was $20, which is lame, but now I have one in my car that I can take into work or other places with me.

To a fanboy, you were a hater. I got flamed just for agreeing with you

It baffles me as well how the iOS keyboard still lacks long press options, and there are no shortcuts to system toggles (like SBSettings gives). I'm sure both of these could be addressed with a jailbreak, the same way the speed issues of an S3 can be addressed with a root and flash to 4.1.

As far as speed Goes is the extra 1/4 of a second faster over the last iphone really worth Upgrading for the $200? I doubt it As far as i look it its exactly the same phone but a bit larger faster, Way worse maps and bad built quality

You just have to check online every night at 10PM (Apple Store).

You can also check the Best Buy website, but I don't recommend buying from them. If you have a defect out of the box, you have to fight them for the right to return. And they are very reluctant to do swaps.

Are you seriously like 5 years old? Your intelligence matches your opinions. How can you say bad 'built' quality?! You honestly need to stop posting, you are making yourself look DUMBER AND DUMBER!

Sorry man, I confused you with hater extraordinaire, Jeffro.

Still glad you made the switch and enjoy it as much as you do.

How can you say it has bad build quality when it beats the S3 in every drop test? Because the first batch of phones had scuffs? After that first batch no one has complained of scuffs. Also tests have shown that the iPhone is faster than the S3.

This is sig material. I like it! I look like a badass!

But can you change "Apple Inc." to iPhone ?? I really don't like the OS on Apple computers lol. Although I guess I could Dual-Boot...
