If you thought that the iPhone 4S release would bring its rumors and speculations frenzy to an end, you must know that this was just the beginning. Now released, iPhone 4S continues to create and provide all kinds of dicussions.
Most of these regard the iPhone 4S features and capabilities. Many would say that iPhone 4S didn’t deserve all the big fuss made around it since it doesn’t bring too much of a change. So, here’s our iPhone 4S review. Hopefully, this will help you decide whether the long expected iPhone suits your needs or not and whether its specs are higher than those of its predecessor, iPhone 4.
As you already probably know, iPhone 4S packs a better processor, that is the A5 processor, a 8-megapixel camera as well as improved aerial signal. The design is no different than the one of iPhone 4. So, if you’d expected something more ravishing in matters of look and design, then iPhone 4S will clearly disappoint you. Still, the phone’s dimensions include a height of 4.5 inches, a 0.37 inch depth, a 2.31 inches width and a weigh of 140 grams.
Let’s take the camera first. iPhone 4S may not bring something revolutionary when it comes to its camera capabilities but there are great chances for you to throw away your compact camera in favor of the iPhone 4S 8MP camera. As we’ve showed you earlier today, the photos taken with iPhone 4S reflect the high functionalities of the camera. Taking into account that this is just a phone camera, you will be surprised to see the result.
Other specs regarding the camera include: Autofocus, LED flash, Tap focus, HD video recording capabilities at 30 frames per second with audio, photo and video geotagging and video stabilization. In matters of video recording and photo snapping, iPhone 4S proves to be a rather good device and you can rely on it for your everyday photo tasks.
What generated so many discussions is the phone’s Siri voice assistant, though. This seemed to be the greatest feature of all since its launch. Even if this feature is quite of a new concept, iPhone 4S manages to take it to a whole new level since it succeeds in turning the instructions into actions without any flaws.
The less pleasant aspect is that Siri interprets only instructions related to key features and not to all the things iPhone 4S is capabale of. But if, for instance, you want to make an appointment for 2:00 PM on Monday, Siri will not only do that but will first check whether you have something else planned or not for that day.
Siri proves to be more than useful since you can set it up to remind you to buy or do something. You can also dictate blog posts! Just imagine how cool that is! This makes it almost a necessary tool and any sci-fi fanatic surely appreciates the integration of this feature. So, a big plus for that!
In what the dual aerials are concerned, Apple has been keen to underline the fact that in the case of iPhone 4S there will be no aerial issues as it happened with its predecessor. We only had the chance to test it on Wi-Fi, so for the time being, we cannot complain about any aerial disfunctionality. That’s because the dual aerials automatically switch to get you faster as well as more stable signal.
The iOS 5, the improved graphics and the 200+ features are among the differences that iPhone 4S has come up with. The GHz dual-core ARM Cortex-A9 processor makes it two times faster allowing thus to launch and re-launch apps quicker.
In matters of capacity, iPhone 4S will come in 3 versions: 16GB, 32GB and 64GB. Other specs include: Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, assisted GPS, Bluetooth 4.0, HSDPA-14.4 Mbps, HSUPA-5.8 Mbps, 3.5-inch (diagonal) widescreen Multi-Touch display, retina display.
The built-in rechargeable ion-lithium battery will give you a talk time of up to 8 hours on 3G and of up to 14 hours on 2G, Internet time of up to 6 hours on 3G and of up to 9 hours on Wi-fi.
There are many other smartphones that come with these features but they won’t come up with the voice assistant which ultimately seems to be the most interesting feature of iPhone 4S. Many of these are even cheaper but if you’re impressed with Siri as well as with the faster processor, then iPhone 4 S might be a good choice.
