    I am not a fab of the 5 at all. DH has one and I just don't like it. I have the 4s, due an upgrade end of this year but right now I am hoping I can keep it safe so I can stick with it about longer

    I can honestly say I've never missed Flash on my phone...on my iPad, occasionally...but not on my phone. :shrug1: Many things are going to html5 now, so I don't even think about it very often.

    Yep, that was a bit of the reason I didn't upgrade when the 5 came out to begin with - I always like to give them a bit of time to "work out the kinks" :wink:

    I do love my 4s and have been truly happy with it - Jon has the 5, and though I find some of the features "nice" I wasn't fussed about having to have it. He REALLY wanted the Galaxy S3 (and then 4) but just couldn't get past the size of them -

    I currently have a 4S. It's giving me problems with not holding a charge worth a darn but it's been a good phone otherwise. I am due for an upgrade at the end of Aug. The store tried to get me to go with an Android last year. It was TOO BIG. The phone needs to fit in my front pocket.

    Yes I notice it more on my iPad but occasionally in my phone too. It is a pain when you click on a link on Facebook and the little 'requires flash' message comes up. When DD is using my iPad for homework (Like last night) and I end up having to get my laptop out :0/

    I have a 4 and my phone does not hold it's battery. A walk to work (25 mins) without touching it reduces the battery to 92%. I have tried turning off wifi, bluetooth and all other host of things without sucess.

    I even switched off my mobile internet for a while to see if it helps. Nothing.

    That is the only thing that is putting me off getting another iphone!

    Me too but with a 5, I have an appointment with the Genius Bar on Friday. My phone is near useless to me at the moment because of the battery drain :(

    I have the 4 and the battery life has been great for m. Last year on holiday it lasted all day long, I just charged it every night. When you think of the photos and things I was posting on here during the day and other things I was really impressed.

    Chris has the Galaxy 2 and he finds the iphone too small, he's hoping that when the 6 comes out it will be slightly bigger than it is now (he's not interested in the 5s :lol: )

    Jon had the Galaxy 2 and loved it - that's why he was so disappointed when the 3&4 increased so much in size.

    My battery has just started to show signs of "age." It used to do brilliantly, but over the last couple of months I've seen a significant change.

    So, I think I have made the decision to do as many of you suggested and file the insurance claim and wait a bit to upgrade. Thanks for all the advice an insight!

    Ah yes. Funny you should say that, Baleigh was studying for finals the other day and wanted to use an online site for making digital flash cards (very cool, btw). She was on my iPad and couldn't sort out why it wouldn't work - and neither could I until I looked at it - it had been so long since we'd run into the "flash issue" that is completely forgotten about it! But yes, we did have to switch over to the laptop...

    I use a little app called 'puffin' it's a web browser that somehow converts the flash items on a webpage to something the ipad can handle.

    Don't ask me how it works, it just does! :lol:

    It's about £2.99 on the app store. :)

    I don't know it off the top of my head, Jules - but I'll ask Baleigh for the URL when she comes home from school this afternoon. :yes:
