Is it Possible to Buy a Cheap iPhone 4S?

Even though the iPhone 4S is Apple’s flagship model and has been making customers pay a premium for many months now, there is one way of finding a cheap iPhone 4S deal. That is if you’re willing to opt for a lower memory model. The iPhone 4S 8GB has all of the features you’d expect from the premium-level smartphone, such as an 8-megapixel camera, Siri voice activation and a whole host of apps and user-friendly functions. However, the lower memory means that you don’t have as much space to keep video clips, images and files on your phone at all times. There will be a time when you fill it up, but with online cloud storage facilities it’s a small price to pay so you can pay less for the phone itself.

As the iPhone 5 is winging its way to the UK soon and we are proud to be the place to be for iPhone 5 deals once the networks release their prices, the iPhone 4S is becoming cheaper and cheaper to buy. However, with stunning technology and advanced cleverness compared to other phone manufacturers the new iPhone 5 will not make the 4S obsolete. People today are still buying iPhone 3 phones, so if you’ve been hankering after an iPhone 4S then now is the time to take advantage of the clearance sales as retailers make way for new phones.

With the iOS5 taking the iPhone to new levels and the A5 processor speeding things up to help the user have a more fluid action to their commands; it’s a phone that others are trying to emulate. Ultimately, for the best premium smartphone you have two choices either the iPhone 4S or the Samsung Galaxy S2 until the new models of each company come out later this year. If the 16GB, 32GB or 64GB iPhone 4S models are too expensive still, then go for the 8GB and make the most of Dropbox, Google Drive or any other online storage site.

If you’re a serial smartphone buyer but love to grab a bargain you can buy the 8GB version to save a little bit of money. It’s more than adequate for most people and if it means that you need to transfer videos to your laptop then so be it. You just need to be a little more proactive in moving files, but 8GB is still plenty of space for the average user.

The HTC Sensation is thought to be the competitor to the 4S but the Galaxy 2 is more likely to be stealing customers from both companies. However, if you’re an Apple fan and have loved the iPhone and all of the associated apps and functions that come with it, then the 8GB is truly the bargain of 2012. As Samsung bring a new model out or a variant of an existing model so often it can be tricky to keep up. Also, Samsung tend to focus their efforts on mid-range smartphones and that’s why the iPhone 4S 8GB in white or black is still a major force on the smartphone circuit.
