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.

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.

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

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

Sprint iPhone 4S

CNET
20 January 2012
  • Summary: The iPhone 4S isn't the king of cell phones, but it's part of the royal family nonetheless. Even without 4G and a giant screen, this phone's smart(ass) voice assistant, Siri, the benefits of iOS 5, and its spectacular camera make it a top choice for anyone ready to upgrade.
  • Pros: Apple's iPhone 4S has a faster processor and an upgraded camera, all the benefits of iOS 5, and a useful and immensely fun voice assistant. Call quality on the Sprint model is admirable, and the data speeds, while certainly not 4G, get the job done.
  • Cons: It's about time we get a larger screen.

  • Excerpt: The Good Dual-core chip keeps it faster than rivals. Excellent rear camera for quality, speed. Siri makes voice commands natural, accessible. iOS 5 helps Apple catch and maybe pass rivals. iCloud syncing and backup. Long battery life. Still a great display. 64GB option. Good feel in the hand. The Bad Siri only goes so far; no third-party apps, not enough voice feedback. Call quality just so-so. Might benefit from a larger screen. 3G stops at 14.4Mbps; no real 4G yet.
