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:

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 -
+ 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 :)

gsmarena said that ip4s is the best phone today..

always hardcopy..

cnet and pocketpc reviews on youtube says that s2 is still superior, they compre both phone frm os to screen to display from pic to camera videos full hd

theres also blog here on gsmarena prove that s2 is a superior for videos over all nxt is nikon cool pix which is digicam.

Galaxy S2 and iPhone 4S are both beasts. If you care about quality apps/games, go with iPhone 4S. If you want big screen, go with Galaxy S2. Battery is little bit better on Galaxy S2 and audio quality is better on iphone 4S.

Not sure whether is right place to say it... Isn't the notification bar/tool too similiar with android platform?... I thought Apple strongly against copying (on going never ending patent wars)... I'm user of android platform and i thought this is sumting which can say android is better than apple... where Apple Apps is far superior then google market... what r ur thoughts??..

Wherever I go I see Android fanboys bashing some brand or the other... Now since GSMArena have put a review of the iPhone 4S and it was proved to them its a great phone and even better than S2 or some top Droids out there, my Droid mates are unable to digest the fact and call GSMArena biased and what not??? Get a life guys!!!

One thing that's terrible about the iPhone 4s, it is very very vulnerable to heights. Even if you drop it waist high (or even knee high), there will be cracks on the phone because it uses glass in the hardware. Gs2!on the other hand, it uses thebscratch resistant gorilla glass so it will start to have small cracks when you drop it shoulder high. Nokia n9, lg optimus 2x and htc sensation also have gorilla glass. If you are a clumsy person, dont buy the iphone 4s because it will break not sonlong after you buy it. No offense to apple fanboys but iphone 4s is like made in china. Breaks easily.

user:iphone 4, is that a phone?

what siri should answer: No, it can't even make call when you holding it wrong!

user: iphone 4s, is that a smartphone?
what siri should answer: It's brilliant! It can recognize itune and iphone and only communicate with them.

Feels like quite a biased review to me. But yes, the iPhone 4S is a great piece of hardware for sure. Not a bad buy at all, however a bit too expensive for my taste...

User:Siri is that normal the great samsung copying you and nameing you IRIS?
Siri:Who is samsung?
User:Its a company that produces android bases phones
Siri:In that case they prob need a 4xcore mobile with a memory of 4gb to run smooth
User:Why is that Siri?
Siri:Cuz android fanboys cryout they cant afford an iPhone and hate quality that iOS+Siri run with 128ram,when android alone runs with atleast 300ram that is to run it decently
Siri:You are welcome so are you haters
Dont hate the player ppl hate the game...Apple da MVP at
