Apple iPhone 4S review: Fast 4ward

Apple iPhone 4S review: Fast 4ward - read the full textThe last thing you need is one that looks exactly like your ex. On a second thought, it's too early perhaps to end it. You two did look great together, your iPhone 4 and you. In fact you still do. iPhone 4S owners, this is between you and your phone's inner voice - Siri. iPhone 4 owners, this...

 

Sort by:

I guess all we need is the iphone, since no one seems to be interested in other phones. They might as well be the only phone company, it just seems like no matter what they do people will buy their products no matter what.

Everyone seems to disregard other brands as being tacky, copycats and most of all a poor mans version of the iphone. Needed to vent, somewhere.

Blissful ignorance. ip4s is the best phone. It's not even match the top 5, if you would like to be fair and honest. Do not give anything revolutionary and system is completely closed. Interesting in America which admires and respects the openness of this system going and glorifies the closed system. Of course, who buy the phone has to be pleased with him. But the truth is that the HTC, Samsung, Motorola, LG with Android are fortunate. Both systems can be evaluated only by person who uses the phone with both; iOS and Android.

I remember that Arena managed to review the SG2 nearly 3 months after the phone had been released! Now they already reviewed the iphone bearly days after it's launch,and despite all of it's restrictions whitch usually mattered for Arena,they suggest the iphone is the best! To remove eny suspicion of biasness,they should do a head to head comparance review(like they did with SG1 and iphone4) of the iphone4s,SG2 and maybe N9,in which they should explain in detail the reasons that makes them to believe the iphone is the best! I used to think that Arena is an unbias site...and I don't want to believe they changed their policy!...

On BrowserMark benchmark, my arc posts a score of 61929.
Does it mean that my 1GHz single core phone's browser performance in JavaScript and HTML rendering is on par with dual core droids? Nice score for iPhone though.

On SunSpider my arc posts a score of 3303.1. Oh well.

I got a Galaxy S2 for almost three months now and my previous phone was a Iphone 3gs....my 3gs never missed a beat in 2 years...I know lot of people are glorifying GS2 here and most of them don't even own one....let me tell you what I experienced in last three months with GS2....

1. Front camera for self photo just stopped working.
2. Gets really hot with more than 20 min of talk.
3. when playing music it shuts down and restarts after few songs.
4. when I receive a call while using navigation app it crashes.
5. Build quality is really cheap.

After having all these issues with in three months I don't think I'll ever buy a Samsung junk again. My GF is using a HTC Incredible S which is way better in terms of build quality and reliability.

> In reply to Nokam @ 2011-10-22 03:55 from utHf - click to readwow u listed stuff that everyone already knows, u must be a genius or something, stop wasting time and trolling about how bad apple is, which is not, apple gives it customers really what they need, now siri, icloud, new features in ios5 for its users, damn good camera , and countless app in their app store.
u guys keep bashing that sgs2 is superfast, who cares? maybe u guys, nobody else cares if u claim android browsers load 2 seconds faster than ios browser, nobody cares if u can insert a microsd card slot in your android phone, nobody cares if you can replace your batteries, nobody cares!!!!!!
we come here to read reviews done by professionals, and read comments by actual users, so we can have a good idea of how good the phone is. so stop hating, and enjoy what you have.
thanks
Gsmarena for an awesome review.

And Siri:

2 min of Full HD video consumed 70% of the battery. Check here for proof:

isnt this icloud app backup stuff the same as titanium backup or any other app on the androids.. and contacts/calendars/emails etc are anyways always in sync on 'ALL YOUR DEVICES' with the same Google ID (yeah.. thats your gmail id)...

it may provide a more easy interface.. but that's it... nothing new.. and what do you want to do with all that 64 gb space if you cant copy files onto/off it !!

Apple is a thief. 4S copied from GS2.

+ Full HD video recording - how come no apple product has full HD recording before GS2 had?
+ 8 MP camera. There are various resolution of camera. Why use 8MP only? Because GS2 did it, and they simply had to blatantly copy-paste.
+ Apple also copied the antennae design - http://www.comon.dk/art/198604?page=2
+ Apple waited for Samsung to make the GS2, and took 5 months to copy it.

HTC Amaze 4G and Samsung Galaxy S II will very easily kick out this basic phone :)
