Should you upgrade to an iPhone 4S?
OK, listen carefully now so you don't get your brain cells in a twist. On the seriously budget end of things (in a parallel Apple universe, admittedly) we have the iPhone 3GS at £320 for the SIM-free 8GB model. Then there's the new 8GB iPhone 4: yours for £430. And if you won't settle for anything less than the iPhone 4S you're looking at £500 for 16GB, rising to £600 for 32GB and an eye-watering £700 for the 64GB model.
Let's say you've got an iPhone 4. Do you upgrade? Yes, but only if the thought of someone having a better camera and faster processor are top of your "iPhone 5" wish list, and you're convinced you want to stay with Apple. Perhaps you've suddenly realised you need Siri in your life? More likely, you can stick with what you've got and sit out the wait for an iPhone with a touch more "wow" in 2012. For iPhone 3GS (or earlier) users or anyone who's yet to take a bite out of Apple iPhone, we reckon it's worth stumping up the dosh for an iPhone 4S. Of course, there's also Google's Samsung-made Nexus Prime – expected to arrive next week – which could yet knock the 4S off its perch.
