For those finding Ram an issue on the iPhone. Get the cheap app called SYS Activity. It lets you very quicker refresh the ram without having to restart

Despite the tired feel of iOS, I am happy I jumped back on with a 4S coming from an Evo 4G and an Evo 3D. Android is fun if you are born nerdy and love Linux. I had a blast messing around with it and tweakng it to my liking. But it never stayed stable. Constant problems with Android making it hard to rely on for work and normal phone tasks. I gave my Evo 3D to my GF and she has been using it lightly for 3 weeks. The camera is force closing non-stop. Rebooting randomly all day, losing signal and not getting it back without airplane mode. And this is all on stock (read: non-rooted), just the way HTC wants you to experience the handset.

Android is great for certain things, but in the longrun I think iOS is great, stable and much cleaner everywhere. I agree with the RAM though. 512 just ain't cutting it anymore.

Hardware doesn't really bother me, as long as the device works well, that's all that matters. The biggest disappointment with the 4S is ram, Apple really could have spent a couple of extra pennies and boosted this to 1Gb, I've been getting a few app crashes on my 4S today (Safari and appstore mainly) and it's pretty clear it's because ram is being used up. The options are either, double tap the home button and then hold another icon down for a few seconds until they start to jiggle and then close each and every app. See how cumbersome that is, the other option is to turn your phone off and on, which I guess is a lot quicker.

Which brings to my next point...software, iOS is looking pretty outdated, everything takes too many steps, basic things like turning wi-fi/gps etc off and on, private browsing on safari etc. In the same way that Windows 7 caught up with OSX, the same has happened to iOS, actually I think iOS was overtaken in usability some time ago, which is sad.

Apple really need to refresh iOS this year, Siri is a gimmick, I haven't touched it since the first week I got my 4S. It's pretty obvious Apple know this, why do you think they stuck that very useful camera "button" on the lock screen in iOS 5.1, previously it would take ages to get to the camera, now it's just one slide and your camera is on. We need a lot more of this from Apple

@jeffyg3 - I seriously hope the screen stays at 3.5" because any bigger and you now have a phablet. If I wanted a tablet I would buy an iPad. The point of a phone is to fit in your pocket. The 3.5" is perfect.

Reviewer, do yourself a favour and stick to the day job of reviewing games and not phones.

I have been using my Galaxy S for at least three years and these has been no issues with the hardware and software which runs very smoothly. The Galaxy S2 was not enough to justify an upgrade but the S3 is very tempting.

Personally I'm waiting for the iPhone 6 coming out later this year. If it doesn't have at least a 4 inch screen I'm definitely getting a different phone. The Galaxy III looks nice, but I've gotten really tired of using the Android OS, it's sluggish, and easily not as stable, intuitive, or smooth as the latest update to Windows Mobile 7 or iOS. I've gotten a lot more app crashes and hang ups to the OS with Android, even on the Galaxy Note at work than I have with iOS. I'm really impressed with the new Windows Mobile OS. I think I might end up getting the lumina 900 if the iPhone 6 is stuck with the same tiny screen as the current models. But bravo to Samsung for the new Galaxy hardware.
