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...

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"

It's true that some people are having battery problem on iphone 4S. Apple is trying to fix it through an update in a few weeks.

It is weird why there is a genre called dice in the app store. SGS 2 has superamoled and it honestly looks awful with everything bluish the iphone 4s is mundane and boring as everyone has an iphone. in short there is no best phone but can you justify if the phone is worth the price.

@Lybomber iphone 4s has the best audio quality and tons of accessories for music gears. Chatting is even better now that iPod people can send you messages on wifi through iMessage app. Look no farther, iPhone 4S has arguably the best 8MP camera on smartphones. For traveling, unlocked iphones will work anywhere with GSM.

Wrong!, it does, it still interesting how people still don't understand how iOS multitasking works. Most of apps it freezes because they don't do anything important in background.

Then apps which needs more function You can upload/download files from dropbox at background, you can download e-mail's, listen webradio, get gps nav voice at background and many many more.

Nope.. no wonder it does save some battery life.. if you still don't believe me, read again the review.. what does it says about multitasking in iPhones?

So the advantage of your iPhone: less-than-real multitasking but better battery life
Advantage of the droid: real multitasking that sacrifice some battery life

And even laptop gets drained if you do multitasking a lot.. so battery life is expected to be less WHEN you do multitasking..

Other than that, although i am an android user, sometimes i am wondering why this site is like Apple vs Samsung vs the rest of the players..
And in samsung reviews, the iPhone fanboys always say that GSMArena is biased towards Samsung nowadays, but in iPhone review, the Samsung fanboys say it is biased towards Apple..

I use android, but want the iPod touch so bad, just for the sake of playing games.. i have my desire S for everything else.. i just don't want to waste my battery playing games in my phone.. i wanna keep it running the whole day for the sake of communication..
