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.

After shattering a handful of of smartphone and Apple sales records, many are wondering if they iPhone 4S is living up to expectations. This phone has received almost an entire year of publicity that pushed anticipation to an all time high just before its release. Here is a review of some of the specs and features that made it onto the final product and how they are going to affect owners.

Straight out of the box, the iPhone 4S is almost identical to both the iPhone 4 and the iPhone 3 in terms of looks and feel. Outside of a small metal lip that surrounds the smartphone, it has similar dimensions to its previous incarnations. Housed within the body itself is a very responsive dual-core, A5 processor. This is used to run Apple's newest iOS 5 at very high speeds including seamless multitasking. Most of the other internal hardware specs, such as data storage, are identical to the iPhone 4.

The impressive features of this smartphone come in the form of pre-installed programs. The one that everyone wants to know about is Siri. This program takes on the persona of Siri, a voice-activated app that allows users to control almost every aspect of their phone solely through voice prompts. Owners are able to ask for the nearest restaurant with a five-star rating one moment and then set a reminder the next. As Apple has stated, Siri continues to be a work in progress. While amazingly helpful in certain situations, Siri does not always respond accurately to complex or abstract questions.

iCloud is the other feature that has come to be a key selling points for the iPhone 4S. iCloud is a large scale data warehousing system that allows users to store their songs, books, movies, TV shows, and other types of files on a remote server. They will then be able to access these files from upwards of 10 devices of their choosing.

It is important to consider the iPhone 4S an upgrade to the iPhone 4, not a separate entity. Luckily, with an improved processor, exciting pre-installed programs, and a dramatically longer battery life, this smartphone is definitely worth consideration.

I have never owned an iPhone before this phone so I am new to all aspects of this phone. Needless to say I was very hyped up to buy this phone. Coming from using Microsoft, BlackBerry and Android OS, this interface seems very simplified compared to all three, although reminds me a lot of Android. The display is very vivid and very responsive to touch, this phone has never frozen or caused me any trouble. Everything is easy to sync, iTunes and iCloud make a lot of worry about loosing potential data go away. Thousands of apps to choose from and limitless amounts of music. Honestly I can find nothing wrong with this phone at all. Data is fast (for 3G), amazing camera, vivid screen, very user friendly, good battery life (for a smart phone), and over all feels very well built. Everyone has their different likings and dislikings when it comes to smart phones, every smart phone has it's pros and cons, where this phone might lack the security of BlackBerry or customization of Andriod, it makes up for it with simple interface, ease to sync, and fun over all. I have had many different types of smart phones over the years and with this phone I was looking for an easy to use phone that will not cause me any trouble, and that is exactly what I got.

Great phone still nowadays.

Iphone is that kind of device you can trust. I was a huge fan of android phones and used to worship Samsung and hate Apple. Now it´s the opposite.

First time with my 4s on hands I installed the essencial apps (viber, skype, facebook) and it had me on my first skype call. Did it not freeze and plus I could multitask while videocalling and go back to skype aftwards without a drop in call quality of freezing up. (Galaxy s3 I had crashed facebook on the very first day).

Everyghint else works as it should. Reliable GPS, great sound, great screen with superb outdoor visibility. Never had an issue with battery life. Usually lasts for 2 days with regular txting, calling, browsing and facebooking. When I go biking I usually track my workout using SportsTracker and with GPS on all the time plus some txting, 3g for maps, photo taking and else it lasts for 6-7 hours. That´s amazing in my opinion. BUT we always wish a better battery life, and I´m not different, I´d be flattered to have some extra juice. In te other hand there are bunches of external juice packs available for iphone and I got one.

One think I noticed is that I never have to close apps or restart phone because it´s slow. My phone goes 30 days straight without restarting while my motorolas or samsungs had to restart almost everyday and frequently close apps to free some memory.

Iphone maybe doesn´t share files via Bluetooth, or NFC, doesn´t support SD card expansion memory and doens´t have nifty tricks as android but IS RELIABLE and READY TO USE.

Only thing I really miss is shortcuts for toggling connectivity like airplane, bluetooth, gps, wifi.. but seems like iOS 7 solved this problem so looking forward to it become available :)
