    I have a sony ericsson w595 and thinking of upgrading. I thought about the bb torch because alot of people i know have a bb and the bbm feature seemed attractive, but i hate the look of it and its massive.

    So im now thinking of getting either the iphone 3gs or 4. I plan on buying it on pay as you go. Ive never been a fan of contract phones and i know alot of people who have had trouble with their contracts and now regret getting a contract phone.

    So yeah which one should i get?.
    Both will be 16GB btw. And yeah i know the price of both if i plan on buying it, so please dont include the price when comenting. Thanks

    What? Load of rubbish. Its faster than the 3GS.
    Anyone who gets the 3GS instead of the iPhone 4 is an idiot (unless its because of price).
    As for the iPhone 5, you'll be waiting till June.

    It's definitely faster than the 3GS. It's got a better processor and more RAM.

    Iphone 4 hands down.

    In comparison to the 3gs, well, its far more advanced in terms of the camera as it has a flash and its 5 megapixels, its display is a lot better too.

    i know nobody that regrets it.

    iphone 4 is considerable better. not to mention that the 3gs is a relatively old piece of tech now, in a couple of years it'll be absolutely ancient!


    my advice is either wait another 5 or 6 months and get the new iphone when it comes out.
    or get an android phone that has come out in the last couple of months.
    but thats partly because i hate having old tech, especially when it comes to phones.

    and the screen (after using an iphone 4, a 3gs and most other phones just look terrible in comparison)

    Iphone 4 I have the 4 and my boyfriend has the 3GS.

    The Iphone 4 screen is so much better than the 3GS, and its quicker, more apps developed for it etc. I think you'd regret it if you got the 3GS over the 4.
