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
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?
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.
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
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.
Excerpt: The iPhone 4S is officially shipping on Friday, October 14. Today is the big iPhone 4S review day, but there have been already plenty of user reviews of the iPhone 4S that appeared over the last couple of days as Apple has delivered iPhone 4S devices ahead of launch in some countries.
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.
