The end of the line for Iphone's?

Ok so i have been holding out now for about 6 months waiting to change my work mobile phone in the hope that the boys at Apple would offer something to compete with the other major players. Looks like i waited in vain!

The new iphone really isn't inspiring me and having witnessed the iphone 5 looking rather similar to my 4s, im quite disappointed to see the 5s looking.... Well, still like my 4s!

So im thinking of breaking away from Iphones and quite fancy the look of the Sony Experia.

Problem is i have something like 600 odd songs on my Iphone and don't want to lose them.

Can the be transferred across to an Android phone?

Also, two of my vehicles have ipod enabled stereo's which have a dedicated charging and music control facility.... Is there a way i can convert the plug to another brand of phone manufacturer? An adapter maybe?

Anyone on here have any experience of the Experia? I use my phone about 70% for work (emails etc..) and the rest for pleasure.

Any comments welcome.

I'm in the same boat (no pun intended) Got 3 Iphone 4 between us, loads of apps, B&W Zeppelin dock etc, so we are pretty much tied into the franchise. There's nothing wrong with the phones & we are out of contract. The phones do everything we want 'em to do & I see no reason to cough up to change for what is essentially a minor update. Personally I think the smartphone has probably reached its pinnacle for the foreseeable future, with the Manfs now competing on price & minor tweaks for the fanboys.

an iphone is still way easier to use than the Samsungs. Unless you have something specific the samsungs do that the iPhone doesn't id stick with the iPhone. For the vast majority of people the manufacturers have again gone down the path of differentiating themselves with masses of features that most of us will never use.

Why not just stick with your 4s? I don't see any reason to "upgrade" to a 5 or 5s, but equally wouldn't want to swap it for anything else.

My 4s is paid for and my monthly bill is now about 12 for more minutes than I ever use, unlimited texts and a gig of data. If I had a bleeding edge phone on contract it would be costing 3 or 4 times that much.

Ditto about sticking with the 4. It does everything i need, costs only 12 per month for zillions of calls, texts and unlimited data.
Personally can't see the point of upgrading....

The S version of every iphone model is traditionally the same as the first as far as the shape and size its the techno inside the phone that is tweaked for faster download speeds and what not. If your after a new look you'll have to wait for the iPhone 6

iOS vs. Android: Your Best Arguments

I won't be switching from an Android phone anytime soon but most people want a phone that just does the simple things (calls, text, email, web) and does it well. They don't expect or need their phone to do anything else. An iPhone does that.
