"Excellent phone - Better Than Androids"5.0 starson by sarusan68
Pros: World phone
NO JUNK APPS!!!!
iOS5 & iCloud
Solid construction & durable
Cons: It's about time to offer a slightly larger screen (especially for those of us with poor vision).
Siri does not work with all apps, including Verizon's navigation app.
Summary: Made the switch to the 4S (Verizon) several months back after using a Samsung Galaxy (Android) for 6 months.
I am pleased with the switch since I found there to be numerous issues with Androids such as; too many steps to do simple functions, too many apps that could not be removed and poor battery life (seems to be a common issue regardless of manufacturer).
Having helped friends with their iPhones over the past several years, I found that iOS and the hardware are far easier to use, more durable and offer excellent performance.
Siri has been great, not perfect but it handles what I need it to for the moment.
Chose Verizon for it's better maintained network, reliable service, excellent customer service (no such thing with Sprint or AT&T) and great coverage.
And as for the voice/data issue with CDMA, not an issue since I use my iPad and Macbook Pro on my LTE MIFI.
