I was in love with the iphone 4s till there are a few things that disappoint me:
1) Small screen-it would be better if it was 4 inch
2) Browser does not support adobe flash player-couldn't watch korean drama online
3) Battery life is not good-i always need to lower down my brightness
4) Front facing camera is only vga quality
5) Build quality is only good in terms of cosmetics, not durability, go check on youtube, samsung galaxy s2 vs iphone 4s drop test
Those are the things, I'm not an apple fanboy or android fanboy, I'm just looking for a phone that satisfy my needs,I buy the best phone so I can use, not to compare
Review of iPhone 4S on Popular Science:
I was in love with this phone,but there are a few things that dissapoints me about this phone:
1) Small Screen-it would be better if it is slightly bigger,about 4 inch
2) Browser does not support adobe flash player-couldn't watch my korean drama.
3) Front facing camera is vga quality-compared to sgs2,its 2mp
4) Build quality-its quality is only because of cosmetics,not durability,go check on youtube,iphone 4s vs samsung galaxy s2 drop test
5) Poor battery,u gotta admit,the battery life sucks and i always have to low the brightness and worrying about the phone usage
Thats all i guess,i love the design,the camera,applications,i guess ill have to go with sgs2 1st,and wait for iphone 5,but at the same time,i wonder how sgs3 is? im not on any side,not a apple fanboy or android fanboys,just looking for a phone that satisfy my needs
[deleted post]One thing Apple is known for is its build quality, and the iPhone 4S does not disaapoint. They apply standards that are way higher than most average companies, and are known for their attention to detail.
Apple shifted entire production lines, so that they could move MacBook production to the unibody aluminium enclosure which allowed for finer detail in the shaping process.
In most reviews you will encounter on the iPhone 4S, you will all hear the same thing, that the iPhone 4S is one beautifully engineered device. Plus, with Apple's two year strategy on hardware, they have more time to make adjustments and improvements to the hardware (iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4S), as opposed to other manufacturers who introduce many models, and have a shorter shelf life.
its kind of iSad that in every iphone 4s or any iphone there lies a a very powerful Samsung processor hahahahahah

rockstar, 25 Oct 2011the os is a little bit upgraded,the camera has changed from a 5MP to a 8MP which is some what ... morePlease read the reviews which are plentiful and all over the internet. Performance is hugely increased, with software set to be optimised very quickly, as iDevices are not fragmented. iCloud, Siri, Dual Core, 8MP with Consumer Reports saying it is one of the best cameras on a phone, AE/AF lock feature on video, amongst fastest shutter speed, Smart antenna technology for great signal quality.
Seriously a huge upgrade, disguised by the fact that externally it looks very similar to iPhone 4. That is why they sold 4 million units on the weekend launch alone. Sales are set to explode with 22 other countries launching this October 28th. Watch as a new wave of headlines will hit the internet, with sales records being broken.
A Blackberry User's First Impressions Of His New iPhone 4S:
the os is a little bit upgraded,the camera has changed from a 5MP to a 8MP which is some what of an improvement but it is still disappointing that not much changes have been made to the external appearance as well as the handling.Look wise it is really difficult to distinguish the iphone 4 from the iphone 4s. Further more it is still some what of a disappointment that only it has been limited to 3G.all in all the display has been also given a little more of juice but due to extreme price there may not be any major buys until the prices come down. looks like even this time the first place will go to the coat effective android phones.
Apple is taking a very similar approach to Audi, going for more and more efficient solutions, yet improving performance.
Audi is going for smaller engines yet improving performance, and this is only achieved using superior engineering.
Well done Audi and Apple!
Tyler, 25 Oct 2011It is a shame that iPhone still has not stepped up it's game regarding both it's hardware and ... moreI'm still using 600mhz 256mb iphone 3gs and this run perfectly smooth newest games like dead space which is one of the best looking mobile game, web, iOS, just saying to you android specfan who think's numbers on paper mean everything :)
I can't even think how powerful iphone 4S is and how good looking things it's going to run.
without any doubt Iphone is the most amazing phone and ios is the best os ever introduced. the only bad thing is the restrictions and limitations made by apple make the users prevent from getting the full use of the device. that's not a mistake that apple has made but a marketing strategy otherwise there's nothing to complain abaout.
Tyler, 25 Oct 2011It is a shame that iPhone still has not stepped up it's game regarding both it's hardware and ... moreThere is something called resource usage for programming..!
iOS is the best when it comes to managing resources .its a shame that android needs a 1GB + RAM and a 1 Ghz + dual processor to run flawlessly..!
Brush your basics before posting junk on the website..!
Tyler, 25 Oct 2011It is a shame that iPhone still has not stepped up it's game regarding both it's hardware and ... morelol dude get ur facts straight. the galaxy s2 is NOT a 4g phone, it is an hspa+ or u would say fast 3g phone, at 21 mbps, and the iphone is at 14.4 mbps, so compared to most networks and the speed they provide it won't make much difference. if it was 4g trust me it would top 100 mbps. and also "still only 1ghz" dual core. may i remind u this thing overclocks to 1.5 ghz, and it also has been underclocked at start to preserve battery life. anyway, it obviously works faster than an android, cause my s2 lags compared to my dad's iphone 4 (not the 4s, the one and a half year old iphone 4) and i can say tht the operating system of ios is much better. as for ram, the iphone doesn't do true mutitasking like androids, so the extra ram is not needed. the only way the s2 is better, is its customizability, like live wallpapers and all, and screen, which is much more better compared to the iphone. so don't speak bullshit cause it's clear u won't hav used any of these phones. the galaxy s2 is awesome, but i think it's clear the iphone has a much superior os.
Tyler, 25 Oct 2011It is a shame that iPhone still has not stepped up it's game regarding both it's hardware and ... moreNo phone on todays market is '4G', anyone who tells you otherwise is either lying through their teeth, or is just using it as a buzz word. At best, all the phones that are being labled as '4G' are actually only 3.9G. This is due to the data needed to achieve 4G communications. Its an issue of speed. 4G tech has to support speeds of up to 100mb/s. While it is accepted to say that the new LTE networks are 4G, technically they are not. They are just fore runners for the tech.
[deleted post]Dont you mean "Apple wont exist without Samsung?". Who manufactures Apples "FAMOUS" iOs chipsets?
Tyler, 25 Oct 2011It is a shame that iPhone still has not stepped up it's game regarding both it's hardware and ... moreDear Tyler, here's an article for you from a long time Android user:
The fact that iPhone 4S's 800 MHz is running circles around Android's best at 1.2 GHz says something about its optimization.
It's lack of fragmentation will also ensure that software will always be more optimized in general for iPhones than on Android.
However, it is not the phone for everybody, that much is clear. People should choose what serves them best. A blind person would probably appreciate Siri, others would appreciate the large screens Android offers etc. Choose what's best for you, and enjoy the tech.
