Well the time has come, Apple has decided my phone is a little old to be included in the new fun. I have been happily using this single phone, a 32gb iPhone 4 in black glass, for many years now, running all sorts of ridiculous things and running most of my life through it.
This is my second completely amazing iPhone. In the early years I had a couple bad headphone jacks on the first gen model, but Apple replaced them no questions asked and I got a good one that I rode hard on the road that year. The plastic 3G’s were not the most reliable but my friend had one for years.
Overall the iPhone 4, 4S, 4, and 5C are all really well made devices. Getting pushed into the new model coming soon isn’t so bad when you know it’s gonna be such a great device.
