If there is a reason to buy an iphone, there is only 1 : you are already stuck in their ecosystem (which is not a boon), and are somehow forced into buying.

There is no logical reason to buy a phone which is a marginal hardware bump (with plenty of losses such as camera and battery life), aside from essentially supporting apple suing samsung. Other apple devices may be competitive, and the 4s was a big improvement - but this is not.

Veridct: skip until next iphone model if you have a 4s.
