My iPhone4 has a 3.5" screen and iOS7 is lovely on it.How nice of Apple to support the upgrading of my 3+ yr old, still in perfect condition with no maintenance needed, iPhone4.Android users who are stuck with an old Android version, please take note!
  I'm now off contract of my iPhone4, waiting for the next iPhone. About a 4.4 " screen had my interest, but a 4.7" sounds just a bit too bulky.In Hawaii last year I saw young Korean visitors using two hands to hold their too large for a phone Samsungs. Now I'm concerned about the iPhone 6 being too large to be convenient.I could upgrade to the iPhone4s at a good deal now, but it's 8GB won't handle what I have now on my iPhone4 16GB.So I'll wait it out, perhaps there...
Nope I've been with you all along, concerned about every Google change, which I know will increase their spying capability.   Google's spying is scary particularly when Apple assists Google to rob your iOS Calendar, Notes and Accounts files, via Googles Apple assisted Gmail setup. As for the best Maps, both Apple Maps and Google's Maps have  their strong and weak points.   Both can lose me!But I have to keep Google Maps around for their extremely useful street view.
It's becoming a big problem avoiding FaceBook and other spies.They gobble up the small social sites to add to their stable of victims. Unfortunately the spy Apps and Web sites are increasingly rapidly. I refuse them access to my personal info and they refuse me access to anything of theirs!
Buying an unlocked iPhone directly from Apple and using it on prepaid plans, makes sense for many users. Those with low phone usage and good access to WiFi data, plus travel to other countries can benefit significantly.  I'm currently using my off contract iPhone on a prepaid plan, which my carrier was reluctant to sell me, but had no choice in order to keep me as a customer.  My next iPhone will definitely be a direct purchase from Apple. 
Well I'm not so sure about Apple not caring about Google.After the  iOS 7 install on my iPhone, I noticed by accident that Apple gave Gmail access to my Notes, Contacts and Calendar.  Then with an update to Google Maps I find Google very aggressive for more access to my iPhone status. Now I'm wondering how many $$$s  Google is paying Apple for privileged access to my iPhone personal Info ?
I hear the Samsung  Galaxy S4 is currently the hottest Samsung phone.http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2600682/Mobile-phone-catches-fire-owner-leaves-charge-asleep.htmlCivil servant wakes up at 5am to find her PHONE on fire and 'sizzling' beside her bed  
Also perhaps the "spyware first" Android OS is losing favor with the higher end buyer.
If I were to upgrade now my, still working perfectly after 3y-3m, iPhone4; it would definitely be the iPhone5c.The 5c is slightly lower in price than my 4 was over 3 yrs back.IMO the 4s 8GB being sold makes no sense. It only has about 1GB for the user and is only slightly  lower cost up front, but the usage cost is the same as for all  phones. I've decided my next iPhone purchase will be an unlocked one from the Apple store, so I can pick the usage plan I need and can use...
Those who I know who got an android phone instead of an iPhone, didn't mention your reasons. Their reasons were:-The android phone was lower cost.  (But I say only up front! Sometimes carriers actually pay customers to buy the others)-They wanted a larger screen. A valid point for those without good close vision.-The iPhone wasn't presented to them as an option.   (typical because carriers struggle to sell other phones)
