    Apple iPhone 4 8GB or 4S 16GB ??

    Girlfriend wants an Apple iPhone for Christmas. Verizon online has an iPhone 4 8GB for $99 and and iPhone 4S 16GB for $199. For those who know your phones, which would you get? Why exactly would she need the 4S 16GB?

    I have no problem buying the more expensive model, but I'd like to know if it's worth it. Thanks.

    I would get the larger GB before getting the 4s.

    The iPhone 4s has a few nice features over the 4 but not worth the extra $100.

    ...Siri is the main one. And that's not a big one in my mind.

    The 4S is faster, and currently the only version that is allowed to run Siri, Apple's voice recognition software. There may be a subtle difference in download speed when downloading over 3G, as well, but I don't know if it's as noticeable in Iowa.

    Also, speaking from experience, 16 GB leaves a lot more storage space for music and the like, whereas 8 GB only provides so much space anymore. If she intends to use it as her primary music player, go with the 16 GB version.

    Does she plan on keeping a lot of stuff on the phone? Video, music, apps, etc? I have an iPod touch 32 gig and with all my music and movies I have on it, I'm pushing my gig limit. It doesn't take long, if you put movies on it, to take up a ton of space. And if you have a lot of songs, they take up more room than you think.

    That being said, I know a lot of people that easily get by on 8 gigs. I could probably get by with 8 Gigs, but it would be a pain in the *** as I would have to constantly be re-arranging stuff as opposed to just putting what I want on there.

    Although, now that the family is getting an iPad for Christmas, I won't need to keep all the movies and games on the Ipod that I did before, since the kids will have that to mess with.

    Spend the extra $100. Well worth it. The 8GB is almost worth it in and of itself.

    I suppose she could make use of icloud if space on the local storage device was low.

    All the phones in the world could be 4g capable, but if the network doesn't support it you get the slower speeds. Don't believe all the hype in the commercials. 4g is very limited in availability. If you have it you'll love it...if you don't...you won't miss it because you won't know what you are missing.

    This. Verizon plays on the 4G notion all the time, even though about 90% of thier customers don't live in areas that support the service.

    Go big. As an iPhone owner, storage space is key. All apps will work on any phone, but the size will make it a lot more ocnvenient. Music will eat up space fast.
