    Hey all! how are you doing?

    A question to you guys, I can't decide...

    What is the major difference between the iPhone 3gs and 4? when both running ios 4.
    I assume it's the Speed,Display,FaceTime and camera.
    My question is should I get a new 3gs for a cheaper price or buy the new phone, like 400$ more?

    What do you say?

    Honestly, the screen alone is worth the higher price tag in my opinion. It's so incredibly superior to the older devices' screens and you can't really appreciate it until you've seen and used it firsthand. The 4 also feels a bit snappier and more responsive than the 3GS, but both are great devices. If you can afford it without any trouble, definitely go with the 4, but the 3GS will serve you just fine if you'd like to save some cash.

    Pretty much. Except apps like iMovie, that require you to have an iPhone 4.

    Not going to help much, but personally I've decided to get a decent phone that does web browsing, MSN, and music (probably not touch screen) and then an iPod Touch 4 when it's out (hopefully September!)
