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: While the Apple iPhone 4S does not come with an expansion slot to increase the memory, it does offer 64GB of preinstalled memory. This amount of memory should be sufficient for most of the files you want to carry with you on your phone. Because any changes you make to files or photos will automatically be made on other devices as well, as long as they are in the cloud you will no longer have to worry about uploading the correct files to the correct device.
Pros: The Apple iPhone 4S offers 64GB of memory and plenty of apps to keep you on task during the day.
Cons: It does not come with any expansion slot to add more memory.
Galaxy S3 vs iPhone 4S – Apple’s flagship is living its last days
23 May 2012
Conclusion: As you can see from the table above, the Galaxy S3 beats the iPhone 4S on just about every point spec-for-spec. It has a better, bigger display (which makes the iPhone 4S’ own screen look tiny and bland), a faster processor and graphics adapter, more storage space, a bigger battery (which is also upgradeable thanks to the removable back cover), more connectivity options (Bluetooth 4.0 means it has the aptX codec – finally, wireless audio will sound as high-fidelity as it...
Droid 4 vs the iPhone 4S – is the hardware keyboard enough to choose Motorola over Apple?
6 April 2012
Conclusion: The hardware features are very similar on both the Droid 4 and iPhone 4S, and you can see the full list below. The only major differences are the bigger battery on the Droid 4, which is necessary to balance the increased power consumption on 4G LTE and… that’s pretty much it! Of course, you’ve got the marvelous QWERTY keyboard on the Droid 4 – the best one yet, I should say, but if you don’t need it, then it’s a moot point.
Conclusion: Ratings breakdown. I deducted 2 points from the design because it was borrowed from the iPhone 4S. The exclusive dual-antenna design is a high light, but ultimately it was a necessary fix. I deducted 2 points for the Hardware despite the improved performance because there’s a handful of quad-core smartphones announced and dozens more on the way.
Nokia Lumia 900 vs Apple iPhone 4S – which one should you go with if you want a powerful, yet easy to use phone?
6 March 2012
Excerpt: iOS and Android are currently at a tie for the most popular operating system in the mobile world. But if you want a simple to use OS that doesn’t require you do any manual configuration or mess around with the settings, then iOS is pretty much your only choice. Or at least it was, until Microsoft’s Windows Phone 7 launched, after years of promises and delays. Windows Phone 7 is a really great OS, and it’s getting better all the time.
Excerpt: Recently, the ever-wonderful and kind people at ZAGG bestowed another gift upon me. With my excited news regarding the arrival of my new iPhone 4S, they sent along a little Christmas surprise that was very much appreciated. I eagerly awaited the package and when it arrived I discovered a ZAGGskin with a beautiful and simple rainbow design on a white background, perfect because of my artistic personality and the fact that I chose a white iPhone.
Conclusion: Even the packaging on the iPhone 4S is identical to the previous model- with the exception of 4S written on the box instead of 4. You get the USB plug, the iPod cable and that pin to remove the micro-SIM tray from the iPhone along with the usual warranty and quickstart guides.
