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...

There is no doubt that iPhone 4S is the best iPhone as gsmarena said. I was lucky enough to get hands on this great device during the initial period of it's availability. The only problem I noticed with it was the poor battery life, it was very disturbing for me until I found an effective tutorial to increase it's battery performance here, http://www.phonesarchive.com/t...olution.html
The battery performance increased dramatically after I did those tutorials.

Hello everybody. I would like to start by stating that i have been using a SGS2 since september , but now i am a proud owner of a 4S. Being a previous owner of both HTC HD2, I4 , SGS2 and GoogleNesus S phones i can say one thing for sure. Android is very good but needs more optimization. Its key features include freedom of customization in everything, from apps to os, but the latter is too fragmented, not being able to have latest updates quick and fast and supported officialy is a downer. Apple is tighter in this matter. It brings users a solid out-of the box experience which is unparalleled on the 4S. I am not comparing the 4S and saying its the best, not at all. I am saying only that for me, it is a better choice than the SGS2. Now, from the modder point of view, waiting for a jailbreak which takes longer and longer with each itineration of apples ios is a disturbing fact, but the overall experience suits me best on apple's latest and greatest. Now, we should all be happy and excited we have these smartphones which make our lifes easier and funner , smarter. We don't have to argue which is best because there is no actual 100% accurate response for that. Every individual is different , and you may have to check out alot of devices before you get the right one for you, regardless of their status, but one thing is for sure, your sense of happines with the device you own is what matters. Happy Holidays everybody !

Last time I check, people spend most of their time on games on iOS and Android.

The OS may be faster but for pure 3G capability, its behind the top dogs. Also, why the hell would anyone get a phone for those games you mentioned? Street Fighter?!? What?! I have an xbox, ill stick to that thanks and use the phone for texts, calls, internet, emails and the odd App here or there.

I think iPhone 4S RULES!!! no other phone can match iPhone. It will not be No.1 if it is not the BEST! the number of units sold out and high market demands indicates how a great device is...

But whole point is different with iPhone.

3GS performance is almost same as iphone 4 and like 30% slower than s2 or 4S .
3GS also supports all updates even iOS 5.

Most people say "512 MB Ram on 4S is low or bla bla"
but question is "How much RAM are developers utilizing to make apps ?"
Answer is most of developers still target 3GS which has 256 MB RAM .Because if u want more people to buy ur apps u must support older phones too along with new ones.

U don't understand this.
Nokia had 5 MP cameras right from 2007 and what they achieved ? its about usability.

Camera doesn't depend on lenses and sensor alone.

Good Processor + Decent Camera Sensor = Best quality.

Good example :
Car ziass lens + 3.2 MP 5800 express music quality vs 3.2 MP 3GS quality.

3GS camera rocks and 5800 camera simply bad because processor can't handle good white balance and smoothness.
So usability is what iPhone is meant for.

iphone is not meant for flash and u still buy it and complain about flash = immature .

Multitasking is another blame on apple.

Try this on ur droid phone and tell me if it works ? ok ?
1.Open Youtube app , start a video
2.while keeping the video playing now open browser or launch a game
3.switch back to youtube , ur video doesnt even load instead it stops and "repeat arrow" symbol.

Is that true Multitasking ? haha lmao

ur entire statement b4 is a fanboy statement totally.

i used to hear lot about android and now u remind me of one of those fanboys who use "excuses" to blame other products to argue.

u went along adobe's back shouting "Flash" and now they are also going apple's route (develop HTML 5 and ditch flash).

u shouted "honeycomb" and said unique experience.
Now ? ICS use same UI on tablets and phones.
Apple did that in 2010 January itself (launch of iPad with same iPhone UI)
using same UI on tablets and phones.
Now Google is also following apple's route.

u shouted "Open Source" .
Now u must root device inorder to do anything like overclock or install custom ROM.
is that open source ? lmao

i think u must teach all about "android is very cool" and i already showed u how well android is with above description.

As a matter of interest, the Australian consumer magazine Choice test of 17 mobiles, the iPhone 4 won for sensitivity (calls made at varying distances from mobile tower). Then the Atrix and then the Torch.

@Androidfan: I don't really need "all features are available". What I need is "All features are not only available but also the best they are"
