GSMArena 8MP shootout champion - iPhone 4S:
If we had to recommend a cameraphone, it would be the iPhone 4S. The still camera was either the best or a close second in each category we tested. Also, it stole the show when it came to video recording. It goes to show that when Apple put their hearts to it, they can quickly climb to the top (and it was a steep climb too, if you remember the cameras on the early iPhones).
In a typical Apple fashion, the 4S focused on being perfect and wouldn't care for anything less - things like 720p or lower quality setting for stills.
Even so, the things that were included are highly desirable - native HDR mode, AE/AF lock and video stabilization can certainly make a difference.
GSMArena iPhone 4S review:
The iPhone 4S is blazing fast on the new dual-core CPU and graphics chip. And by the way, this is a long-term asset - new apps and services will take advantage and they'll be exclusive to the 4S. The iPhone is finally up there with the industry's finest cameraphones too. In fact, it may well have the best 8MP stills and Full HD videos a mobile phone can produce. iOS 5 is busy making a difference too with the iCloud, iMessage, OTA updates, new notifications and voice recognition. On top of that you get the best app store and the brilliant looks of the original iPhone 4.
When you add it all up, Apple have a smartphone that can match and even outclass formidable peers like the Samsung Galaxy S II, the Galaxy Nexus or the Nokia N9. In the US, it will be the likes of the HTC Amaze 4G and the Verizon DROID RAZR.

[deleted post]It is a Mac in a Mac ecosystem it works for me, so my mind is free to use in my life and business matters and I do not have to go crazy with settings, contact lists, apps and so on.
Mobile me keeps me in sync FREE and wirelessly.
I do not care about processors, dual core, quad core, megapixels, ram and various BS
What matters to me is the technology at my service.
it is not just the camera difference between 4 and 4s. You have the processor and the data download speeds when using 3g network. True, siri can be installed on iphone 4, but so far it is not possible for normal users. Siri work only for those developers that were able to port it on iphone 4.
[deleted post]Not a problem. I too am confused as to the massive sales figures and hype so soon after its release. After all, its like the SG3 being released end of next year, with us SGS2 fans expecting something big (like I-Users were saying "iphone 5 is going kick ass etc etc) then they release a SGS2X or something which is the SAME but has a 12 mp camera and a quad core. I look for design and feel on a new phone and i expect better. I am sure the SGS3 will be massive. I expect the iPhone 5 to be massive. I also expect Sony Ericsson to come out next year and do somthing big due to the sucess of the Experia Arc S. People should be open minded like some of us (ie me and you lol) and go and explore different handsets and when your happy stick with it........for now.
iPhone 4S making frenzied debut in 15 new markets
From the article:
New Zealander Jonathan Mosen, who is blind, queued for six hours to ensure he got his hands on the phone, saying its voice recognition technology was a boon for the visually impaired.
"It's the only cellphone you can take out of the box and it is usable by a blind person," he told Fairfax Media.

hey guys, can i use this phone in india if i bought it from the sites?.I mean does it work with indian sim (vodafone).
I had a htc Evo and I can say that iPhone 4s blows tha Evo out of the water
Nokia is the best for calls and internet access reliability. Iphones drops out, get an ipod instead.

http://www.youtube.com/watc... moreIt is not the same speed. The iPhone 4S has a huge speed advantage, as it has gone from single core in iPhone 4, to dual-core in iPhone 4S. Games like Infinity Blade 2 are already taking advantage of this.
Also, the 8MP camera in the iPhone 4S is quite remarkable, and just won the GSMArena 8MP shootout on the main page.
That being said, for more casual users, the iPhone 4 is certainly a fantastic phone, and a great buy too. Apple phones are designed very well, and tend to last longer, and Apple has a great track record in updating OS for iPhones. Even the iPhone 3GS from 2009 is currently running the latest iOS 5.
If you need the extra power and better camera, go for iPhone 4S. If your needs are slightly less demanding, the iPhone 4 is an excellent phone.
