    I've had so much trouble with my iPhone 4 since I got it on preorder day that I'm considering using my upgrade to get a HTC. Can anyone tell me if the new iPhone has as many problems as the 4? My problems with it are yellow pictures with flash, Bluetooth sounds robotic, it says searching for signal & requires 3-4 resets, and dropped calls. I exchanged it once and the second time they said there was nothing wrong with it but I know there is. I've never used anything in the last 4 years other than Apple so I'm worried about going to something else. I know this isn't the best place to ask this, but what do you all think?

    Bluetooth & the antenna have been improved. I assume you've got a case on it. Check if that's what's causing you grief with the photos. The camera on the 4S has received a significant upgrade.

    Keep in mind you'd be walking away from your app investments when changing platforms. Also there's a bit of a technical learning curve so if the ease of Apple's UI is a plus than make sure to familiarize yourself with the return details on the HTC so you get a trial period without getting stuck with it unless you're sure you want to keep it.

    Finally, only the high end Android's can compete with an iPhone. Anything less is purely for savings and a consumer that isn't asking as much from a smartphone.

    Size might also be an issue for you but weight is usually lighter with the new Androids.

    Hope that's helpful :)

    What about using your upgrade for the iPhone 4S? You could also try another genius appointment and maybe you'll have a more understanding genius.

    My wife and both have the 4 with none of the problems u describe. I never even noticed the antennae issue. I've since upgraded to the 4s. It works great also, the battery may drain a little faster but it's not very noticeable. I'd upgrade to the 4s. Siri is great. U can customize vibration ringtones for each caller.

    Persevere with your iPhone 4 if you can... use your upgrade later in the new year on the new iPhone5....as a stop gap the 4s is ok.... Don't be tempted to go to the dark side;)...Good luck :)

    Mine had a battery issue as well as camera but Siri compensate for all of the problems. :)

    Well my husband thought I wanted the HTC Inspire so he went and traded my iPhone 4 to someone. Maybe I'm just a simple kind of girl, but wow that phone gives me a headache. I'm so glad that I can upgrade Feb.1st because I'm sure I'm going to be getting a 4s. I can't be to mad at my husband because he thought he was doing the right thing, but I must admit for 2 days I thought I was going to cry. :DI've found a couple things I actually like better about the phone, but overall iPhone is better in my opinion anyways.

    @Reniaalear, I guess it's the thought that counts ;)

    I know I thought I was going to cry. I truly felt like it for a couple days. I do like that the screen is bigger but I need my iPhone back. I'm looking forward to getting the 4s.

    We won't hold it against you, since Hubby made that command decision.
    LOL

    I do like the screen size. You'll love the 4s. It's awesome. I went from the 3GS to 4s. I have no complaints. It's a very nice device.

    I had the HTC Inspire myself before switching to the iPhone 4. I enjoyed the screen size but the poor battery life just killed it for me. I would be lucky to get 3 hours of use out of it before having to recharge the thing. It's not a bad phone...HTC simply used too small of a battery for that size display. But if you can recharge without a problem throughout the day you'll find it's a fun phone. :)

    Well my husband felt so bad for trading my iPhone 4 off for a HTC inspire that he got me a new white 4s today. I'm so happy!

    Whoa whoa whoa. Hold on a minute. There is an iPhone 4s ? S? Really?

    I'm kidding.
    Congrats on your new phone. Good call on the white also. That's a good husband.

    I posted a new topic, but maybe it can be merged? My husband felt so bad about trading off my phone that he went and got me a white 4s today. He also got himself a black 4s. He had the 3GS. I'm going to try to sell the 3GS to get some of the cost back.
