Product description

Product Information
The Apple iPhone 4S is rich with technology and features for an enhanced user experience. The release of the iPhone 4 had smartphone users impressed, thanks to state-of-the-art size, speed, and applications. Apple topped the iPhone 4 with the Apple iPhone 4S, which builds on the iPhone 4 for an even better user experience. Along with a more powerful chip and an improved camera the Apple iPhone 4S also includes an interactive personal assistant to help keep busy lives running smoothly.

Meet Siri
This 4S smartphone boasts the all-new Siri application which introduces a new level of interactive software. This personal assistant is prepared to assist and guide on any one of the many tasks that face users every day. It can understand speakers without any formatting requirement for questions and commands, so users can converse with it as they would with another person. From directions to reminders to initiating calls and much more, Siri offers constant support for many tasks. Now emails and text messages can be dictated while driving for safer travel, and with a simple request, Siri will play the song you want to hear, search the Web, dial a call, or schedule a meeting. Experience the Dual-Core A5 Chip.
The Apple iPhone 4S has the most powerful chip ever included in an iPhone; the dual-core A5. Double cores mean double power, as well as graphics that are up to seven times faster. Now do anything on the iPhone 4S with lightning speed, including gaming, launching applications, and browsing the Web. The A5 chip gives this Apple smartphone an exceptionally long battery life.

Advanced Camera
The camera of the Apple iPhone 4S might very well make stand-alone digital cameras obsolete. Eight megapixels have full capacity to collect unprecedented amounts of light. As a result, it delivers images with significantly improved detail and resolution, which carries through perfectly in enlargements up to 8x10.
Besides the increase in megapixels has been completely re-engineered and upgraded to provide an excellent image regardless of the amount of light available. This Apple smartphone has a custom lens that shapes incoming light with five precision elements. This gives each image a sharper quality that is not seen in any earlier Apple smartphone camera. A backside illumination sensor offers additional sensitivity, resulting in crisp and clear photos. The iPhone 4S offers an automatic LED flash for low-light situations which can also be manually powered.
The secret behind the technology of the Apple iPhone 4S camera is the A5 chip and the iOS 5 platform. Users can control exposure on the Apple iPhone 4S just as they would on a standard digital camera and tap to focus. Editing, cropping, enhancing, and red-eye removal all happen right on the device, which means it's able to correct and send photos moments after they happen.

Quality Video
All the new features of the iPhone 4S camera make videos better as well. Whether there is ample light or barely any at all, an advanced backside illumination sensor and a bigger aperture are prepared to make the most of what is available. Video stabilization is state-of-the-art for a smartphone, so movies are great even when the videographer's hands are unsteady.
There are more than 200 new features on this 4S smartphone, making it easy to upgrade. Text messaging is taken to an entirely new level with iMessage, offering secure, unlimited instant conversations with any other iOS5 iPhone user. Twitter is integrated directly into the iOS 5 platform, making tweets faster and easier than ever.
Overall, the iPhone 4S is a super enhanced improvisation of the iPhone 4 by Apple. Enhancements to existing features, along with a variety of new ones, make the decision to upgrade to Apple iPhone 4S an easy one.

CNET Editors' review

Excellent
  • THE GOOD

    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.

  • THE BAD

    It's about time we get a larger screen.

  • THE BOTTOM LINE

    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.

I'm not an English native speaker, but I hope you will understand what I want to tell you) I'll start with iPhone's overall rating. I'll give it 4 stars out of 5. You ask why? I'll explain it lower. Productivity: 5 stars. You know, in my country not everyone can manage to buy an iPhone because of lack of money. (But about the price later). There's very few people, who have it. And that's the reason why they are always surprised, when they see this wonderful Retina display, amazing 8.0 megapixel camera in action, when they see me playing such oldschool games like Re-Volt, Crazy Taxi or GTA 3. They say: "Wow! You have your powerful PC, which you can put into your pocket!". And that's not only about these great features, as there are dozens of them: FaceTime videocalling system, iBooks, Newsstand and much more other. Really, this phone is very reliable and powerful as for the phone. -1 star is because of it's battery life. Of course, it works for a really long time in standby mode, but if to use all the great features, that were brought to us by Apple inc. you'll have to live right near the socket or to take some energy source with you wherever you go. Be sure: unfortunately, you'll have to charge it every day. But don't be scared, this is the way every modern smartphone works, as almost all their batteries have the same capacity. The price isn't small. Even if you have such an amount of money, before buying you must decide whether you really need such a complicated (with a lot of possibilities),, well-designed, powerful phone, or whether you need it only to make photos in front of the mirror, so that everyone could see, that you can manage to buy an "applephone". If you need an iPhone just for photos, you'd better buy a cheaper phone, stick an Apple trademark sticker to it and make some photos. All the money that you save you can give to charity. But still, this is your choice.

I picked up a Verizon iPhone 4S on release day to replace my existing Verizon iPhone 4. It is an excellent, reliable device that excels in making phone calls, texting, emailing, and all the other stuff that one would expect from a smartphone. I have not had any of the battery life issues commonly reported on the web. I'm not sure if these issues are due to a bad batch of batteries or if it is a software glitch, but regardless of the cause, I have experienced no battery related problems at all.

The value of the iPhone 4S really depends on what type of phone it is replacing. For anyone with a 3GS or older or any other branded smartphone, this phone is an excellent choice. If you are in the same boat as me and already have an iPhone 4, the answer is not so clear. If I was limited to one new discounted phone every 2 years, then I would have stuck with my iPhone 4 and waited for next year's model. Fortunately, I have a family plan with multiple lines, all of which I pay for, so I am able to upgrade yearly without any pricing issues. I do not think the 4S is enough of an upgrade from the 4 to justify the upgrade if it means you will have to miss out on the iPhone 5 (or whatever it will be called) in 2012. Yes, the 4S is a little faster, Siri is pretty cool though not essential, and the camera is a tiny bit better, but other than that it's pretty much the same phone. I would wait for the iPhone 5.

Having said that, it is a great phone. The extra speed is noticeable. After owning the 4S for a month, I switched back to my iPhone 4 for a few days to see if I could notice any difference between the two phones, and the 4S is definitely faster. The camera is a bit better as far as getting less noise in lower light situations, but the 4 has an excellent camera too. I doubt switching from the 4 to the 4S is going to make a monumental difference in your pictures. If you really want better photos, save your cash and buy a book on art composition - improving your composition skills will make a much bigger impact on your photography than spending cash on a new camera.

If I could only pick one phone to have today, the iPhone 4S would be the one. But if you've got an iPhone 4, don't blow your 2 year upgrade on the 4S or you'll be kicking yourself when the iPhone 5 comes out

I own the iphone 4S and I looooove it! I do not have service through AT&T or Apple. Instead I have my service set up on mobile WIFI so I can use my home or office internet connection, or use Skype wherever I can get a satellite connection and still have it work great as a regular telephone, when WIFI is not available. I use Virgin Mobile for regular cell phone service. Now that they've updated their technology, I can finally use my iphone with Virgin, Yes!!! You can use a 3G network, or facilitate any WIFI connection to which you have access. The internet is fast for a cell phone.
I use this to erase all my junk mail and unwanted messages instead of the laptop computer. I can move through my inbox faster with the touch screen technology. The screen is clearer than that of my laptop computer, great graphic quality sooo easy to use. When I want to get online and not have to boot up a computer, I use this instead. Good rugged design is able to handle a lot of abuse and keep on ticking. If I had to ask for improvements. I would ask for a screen that's easier to keep clean and improved battery life. Maybe even a standard USB port on the side to import media from your computer without the use of itunes. While ipad, ipod or iphone will never fully replace a regular computer and can't even compare. When a laptop computer is to heavy to carry along, iphone is defiantly the next best thing.

I bought this phone because I had finally reached the point where I was utilizing my iPod touch more and more and I wanted the features I had on the touch to have better quality (i.e.-camera,certain apps,etc.). Plus it was a handful having it AND my old phone. That and I was already established with iTunes and it was very easy to transfer my stuff to the phone.
I love the camera. Pics are clear and bright. I am having a lot of fun with just using the phone itself creating my personal ringtones and pics. I keep finding all kinds of little things either in Settings or one of the built in apps that are actually useful to me. I LOVE facetime. It allows me to see my family (who have iphones) that are out of town. I wish it worked between all smartphones though.
The messagaing app is fun. I do wish we could create wallpapers for it like you can on the free texting apps. That I find frustrating.

The home button seems to stick sometimes and I'll have to push it a couple of times. Lately safari has been missing my bookmarks. I find I have to turn off then on the phone to retrieve it. Don't know what that is...
Overall I am very happy with the phone and look forward to filling all 64BG with music and pics.

The iPhone 4 is no small thing to review. As most readers of Engadget are well aware, in the gadget world a new piece of Apple hardware is a major event, preceded by rumors, speculation, an over-the-top announcement, and finally days, weeks, or months of anticipation from an ever-widening fan base. The iPhone 4 is certainly no exception -- in fact, it may be Apple's most successful launch yet, despite some bumps on the road. We've already seen Apple and AT&T's servers overloaded on the first day of pre-orders, the ship date for the next set of phones pushed back due to high demand, and die-hard fans in line outside of Apple locations a week before the phone is actually available. It's a lot to live up to, and the iPhone 4 is doing its best -- with features like a super-fast A4 CPU, a new front-facing camera and five megapixel shooter on the back, a completely new industrial design, and that outrageous Retina Display, no one would argue that Apple has been asleep at the wheel. So the question turns to whether or not the iPhone 4 can live up to the intense hype. Can it deliver on the promises Steve Jobs made at WWDC, and can it cement Apple's position in the marketplace in the face of mounting competition from the likes of Google and Microsoft? We have the answers to those questions -- and many more -- in our full review, so read on to find out!
