    The iPhone 5 is rumored to have a 4 inch screen, starting to chase after the likes of Samsung / HTC. Their latest offerings have ~4.7" screens.
    Have a look at the One X or the Galaxy S3 before you commit, just in case... But personally I'd suggest if you're sticking Apple that you wait until the 5 comes out shortly, it's going to be a nice 'incremental' upgrade from the 4S, but from what the news is saying it'll be a worthwhile one

    Wait for the new iPhone. 4s is not much of an upgrade from the 4.

    Or get the new nexus or one x.

    If you do decide to stick with apple and the Iphone, wait for the 5. Even it doesn't have a four inch screen etc, the phone will still be better than the 4s. But, as Chill said, also look at the high end droids.

    One X has a quad-core 1.5Ghz with "12-core graphics"

    Heck no! ;-)

    In fact I couldn't stand the stock One X interface, bugged me in so many ways. Thankfully the Samsung Galaxy S3 which is looking to have very similar hardware to the One X (A quad-core 1.4Ghz vs a quad-core 1.5Ghz) appears to be much better in this respect.

    I'm running CM9 on mine, something most people wouldn't be comfortable with doing.

    Yes, from what I've seen sense 4.0 is a problem. The issue I have with the Galaxy s3 is it looks like it's been designed to avoid an apple lawsuit.
