    I’m switching from iPhone to Android because of reliability. Many iPhones (e.g. wifi on 4S) cease to work properly when Apple introduced OS 7, including this release. Apple are in denial of course, but try googling 4S wifi problem and see how many hits! Used to buy Apple for reliability and customer support (hah!). Can’t spend $700 on a phone and have it die after 18 months or whenever Apple feel like it.
