Hi Lifehacker, I am trying to find a good cheap smartphone for around $200. Right now the iPhone 4S seems like a good option, though I realise there's a risk it will not be able to run iOS 9 when that appears at the end of this year. Is it a good idea to get a refurbished iPhone?

Predicting the future is near impossible -- but that doesn‘t stop us all from having a red hot go. Human beings have been predicting the future since the beginning of history and the results range from the hilarious to the downright uncanny.

My experience of iPhone batteries is that they take a couple of cycles before the meter is accurate but I don't have a iPhone 4S yet so I can't comment one way or the other. What about other iPhone 4S owners? What's the battery life like?
