Apple iPhone 4S Review

TechSpot
8 February 2014
  • Conclusion: The iPhone 4S may not have a radically brand new design or some of the features that other top-tier smartphones do these days (such as a larger screen or 4G connectivity), but offers what is arguably the best smartphone experience of any device on the market today. It improves upon the massively successful iPhone 4, and takes the crown as the best smartphone you can get.

Galaxy S3 vs iPhone 4S – Apple’s flagship is living its last days

Gadgetmania
23 May 2012
  • Conclusion: The iPhone 4S is already on the market, and it will be around for another year or so as the second model in the lineup when the iPhone 5 is released. Samsung’s Galaxy S3 will be released at the end of spring, and with the pricing being similar for both phones, it definitely makes more sense to get the S3 than the 4S, unless you really can’t find a slightly larger pocket or have very small hands.

Droid 4 vs the iPhone 4S – is the hardware keyboard enough to choose Motorola over Apple?

Gadgetmania
6 April 2012
  • Conclusion: Both the iPhone 4S and Droid 4 are available on sale right now, for similar pricing – if I had to choose, I’d go with the Droid 4, but only because of the more flexible and customizable OS and the awesome QWERTY keyboard – if that’s not an issue for you, the iPhone 4S has a better design and is just as good hardware wise, plus it will have a better resale value when the iPhone 5 is released this fall.

Expert Review

  • 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?

Gadgetmania
6 March 2012
  • Conclusion: If you want a phone that’s easy and intuitive to use, but don’t want to get the iPhone for any reason, the Nokia Lumia 900 is a perfect alternative – Windows Phone 7 is much simpler than Android and yet it’s very sleek and has pretty much all of the popular apps that other platforms have – there’s no reason not to go with it.

Apple iPhone 4S Review: In Depth

Recombu
4 February 2012
  • 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

Apple iPhone 4S (16GB/32GB/64GB)

iLounge
3 February 2012
  • Pros: An improved version of last year’s museum-quality iPhone 4, featuring considerably improved camera and processing hardware, as well as impressive new voice recognition software. Retains the impressive 960x640 Retina Display, FaceTime video calling capabilities, and 802.11n Wi-Fi features of earlier iPhone 4 models while adding dual-mode GSM/CDMA hardware, a Bluetooth 4 chip, and fixing prior antenna performance. Noticeably faster at displaying web pages and running ap...
  • Cons: Smudge, scratch, and shatter issues continue to await users who avoid cases. Lowest capacity version remains cramped, particularly given 1080p video recording capabilities of new rear camera. Cellular and battery performance varies between carriers, with particularly noteworthy issues during use of Sprint’s 3G network. Siri voice system depends upon active Internet connection and localized country support, both initially at least a little shaky. Carrier policies on fo...

iPhone 4S review

theverge.com
30 January 2012
  • Summary: Reviewing the iPhone 4S is in many ways a lot like reviewing the original iPhone 4, except that it's not. The device, which was just announced at a special event on Apple's campus, is very much the same phone the company released in June of 2010 — but it's also something completely new. While much of that sameness comes from an identical physical appearance, and nearly identical specs (in some places), there's much that's fresh here.
  • Pros: Camera is stunning, Retina Display is still best in class, Siri software is incredibly cool and surprisingly useful
  • Cons: iOS is beginning to show its age, Improved 3G speeds don’t seem very improved, especially compared to LTE devices, Glass and metal design is beautiful, but easy to shatter

iPhone 4S Review Round-Up

i4u.com
26 January 2012
  • Excerpt: Either way no the tech pundits like Walt Mossberg have reviewed the iPhone 4S. Walt Mossberg is highlighting two things about the new iPhone 4S: Siri and iCloud. Siri is for him the start of the verbal user interface.  The iCloud is the proliferation of digital freedom, says Walt Mossberg. Overall the iPhone 4S reviews are extremely positive. I have compiled an iPhone 4S review round-up below.
