Excerpt: After a long awaited arrival, the Apple iPhone 4S touch screen phone is here. This device boasts 64GB of internal storage and the IOS 5 processor. This touch phone also includes an 8-megapixel camera so you can be sure your photos will turn out crystal clear. One of the interesting features of this phone is that it will sync all of your Apple devices together. It also includes such features as assisted GPS and a digital compass to keep you on the right path.
Conclusion: With the iPhone 4, Apple had one of the best mobile phones on the market and the iPhone 4S improves on that. It’s fast, with one of the best screens on the market and an excellent camera. One of the great things about Apple products, is their simplicity and iOS 5 makes things even better. Although there's not enough here to upgrade from an iPhone 4, it's still the best Apple phone has released which we have to give it five stars, but we do feel it's not perfect.
Pros: One of the best screens on a smartphone, Fantastic build, Thousands of apps, Improved camera, Faster processor, iCloud
Cons: Screen feels a little small, iMessage quirks, Siri not fully featured, Camera lacks features
Summary: When it comes down to it, the iPhone 4S is everything it needed to be, nothing more. Nothing is mind-blowing or anything we haven't seen before. But Apple focused on some of the weak points of the iPhone 4, like the antenna, and improved upon them. They even took one of the strongest features of the iPhone 4 – the camera, which has surpassed every other camera as the most popular shooter on Flickr – and made it even better .
Pros: Choice in storage capacities; amazing camera; solid design and build quality; strong signal and call quality; decent battery life; "world phone."
Cons: The display is too small for comfortable use; glass on the front and back has proven to be fragile in the past; relatively expensive at $199.99 to $399.99 with a two year agreement.
Excerpt: The Verizon Wireless iPhone 4s is the latest installment of Apple’s iPhone series of cellular phones. There was a pretty big scandal associated with the launch because Apple invited journalists to what is normally a large upgrade announcement and said “NO iPhone 5″, today we are here to announce the iPhone 4s. Journalists criticized Apple for wasting their time on what was clearly a refresh of an old model.
Excerpt: Oh the torture! Our Pavlovian anticipation for a new iPhone every 12 months has been pushed to the limits this go around, especially after being teased earlier this summer about what to expect from iOS 5 (which, FYI will be available to all current iPhone 4 owners October 12th). Now the news is out and Apple’s latest handset, dubbed the iPhone 4S, may disappoint some since it keeps the same body style as the iPhone 4.
Summary: An upgraded processor, an improved antenna, and an all-new camera into the iPhone 4S. The other big story, or should we say, the bigger story with the iPhone 4S is the iOS 5 software upgrade and the voice-controlled personal assistant called Siri. iOS 5 offers over 200 new features to Apple’s smartphone platform, most of which are also available to current owners of previous-gen devices.
Pros: Innovative Siri personal assistant, Fast dual-core processor, Shoots amazing photos and videos, World Phone capabilities
Cons: Costly, No flash integration, Outdated contacts menu
Summary: That said, if you're looking to upgrade your iPhone, or swapping from a different handset, the Apple iPhone 4S is a fantastic smartphone. Stylish, well made, easy to use and packed with features, there's loads to like.
