Excerpt: The iPhone is a brilliant smartphone that works well, and we have been firm followers since 2007 when it all started for Apple and its smartphone line. Smartphones are the future and we love all platforms because they all have their good points, but we are about to burst the happy bubble and come down…
Conclusion: Overall this smartphone is a power hungry beast. With its A5 processor everything seems so fast and smooth from playing games to surfing the web. The new camera is the best camera I have used on a smartphone and Siri is just a pleasure to use, this really is a new way to experience mobile phone technology. If you’re looking for one of the fastest smart-phones on the market with a brilliant camera and a beautiful operating system then this is the phone for you.
Excerpt: The iPhone has been a massive success despite its obvious flaws (think no Flash support; mediocre camera; lack of customisation) and Apple manages to get away with releasing phones at a very slow rate compared with other manufacturers, so we’ve been waiting a long time for what we all thought would be the iPhone 5, but in reality turned out to be the iPhone 4S . So what is it we’ve all been waiting for?
Summary: The iPhone 4S is Apple’s top of the line smartphone, but is it just a small upgrade over the iPhone 4 or something entirely different? It looks the same, but does it act the same? New in the iPhone 4S is Siri, Apple’s virtual personal assistant, along with an upgraded camera, twice the speed as far as processing and downloads are concerned, and a redesigned antenna system that also supports global roaming for Verizon and Sprint users.
Summary: If you have an iPhone 4 you probably won’t feel compelled to upgrade to the 4S and neither should you. The iOS5 software update is free, along with iCloud, for users of the iPhone 4, 3GS, iPad and latest iPod Touch models. But you won’t get Siri. Taken as a stand-alone smartphone, the iPhone 4S is up there with the best of them, but no other maker offers the type of AI you get with Siri, or the integrated ecosystem of iCloud and iTunes.
Excerpt: It's been 16 months since the iPhone 4 was launched. That's plenty of time for rivals to catch up and - in the case of certain models such as the Samsung Galaxy S2 - overtake Apple's flagship smartphone in certain areas. Now Apple has responded with the iPhone 4S, a handset that looks the same as the old one, but with more powerful internals.
iPhone 4S Siri man voice in UK, business & direction problem
14 October 2011
Excerpt: Hands-On: The new Apple iPhone 4S has arrived and we have a few little issues already with the voice and directions, iPhone 4S Siri man voice if for those in the UK and the woman in USA, and we are getting a business search problem.
Pros: Incredibly responsive interface and touch-screen, notifications bar for events and weather, excellent camera, still the slickest hardware design on any phone, high-quality apps at an easy to navigate app store
Cons: iCloud data sync costs after a miserly 5GB, most of its best features available as a software update to older iPhones
Excerpt: The first reviews are out for the iPhone 4S and they’re a lot like we expected, which is to say, exactly what we expected: the same phone on the outside but much better on the inside. It’s faster, has a much better camera and packs a golden bullet with Siri. First of all, the iPhone 4S blows away the iPhone 4 when it comes to speed . For the past week, I’ve been testing all of my most-used apps and the differences range from solid to awesome.
