I know some will disagree and that's ok. But the way iOS multitasks is certainly NOT a disadvantage... But an ADVANTAGE! By suspending the apps in the background (while still being open) iOS can maintain the app's state while also saving precious battery life. The way my old Samsung android multitasked apps were running in the background unsuspended (some I never even opened) and it drained my battery so fast it needed a recharge midway through the day with only average usage.
Am from Mumbai, India.......Siri the latest technology in I4S seems to be a flop outside US coz its programmed to take American acsent command. Outside US anyways Siri technically now may not work but if it does this will be major flaw....
A small experiment I tired with the "Voice Dailing" in the current Iphone 4 but it fails to detect the simplest of name this happened due to the Non-American acsent with which I spoke...All I can say this seems a good feature within US but if it doesn't detects well you may know it can lead to wrong person being contacted and you know what happens thereafter... hehehe :)
Before buying I4S, one should keep in mind its just an extention of I4 w.r.t to shape, design, body, camera pixels, new OS platform etc and very costly. Stick the I4 and wait for I5...why waste so much money for extended features.
Apple should come out very differently with Iphone 5. I think it should be worth a wait.

As long as there are going to be reviews praising a certain product a certain person has a strong dislike for, there are always going to be such complaints.
This same site was saying the improvement in iphone 4s compared to iphone 4 was not great and people will not go for iphone 4s ... But now u guys are mentioning them as ifans .. i always believed Gsmarena was samsung fanboys and biased towards samsung only ..
Iphone 4S much more closer for perfection than any other phone. Like review say it so good packet, it has got better every year without losing that amazing usability now iphone 4S really going to rule the smartphone market.

The SGS2 doesn't have a FM transmitter, which was introduced years ago into Nokia phones. Does that make it behind the times?
siri : wait.....there is other phone, n it is..................my big brother iphone 5 next year,so u better start saving from now.hehehehe
ps. This is not siri but crazy
Apple invented 8Mp camera and 3.5" screen is probably bigger than 4.3" (Reality distortion)
Wake me up when Apple leaves 2008 and steps into 2011.
Trashy low end phone with high end price. Give me a break!
Sorry to say but i lost my faith in gsmarena. All the fuss about iphone rumours is Ok but review like this.... Hell no. Anyone can tell that this article was made by someone who is just a 15 yr old iPhone asslicker (literally), who was drooling over Iphone while writing this review. Same thing i feld while reading N9 review. Wht happened to u guys?
There no in depth research, no actual analysis, testing. U say u do, but now I doubt. Why always other sites gets the tech news and u copy paste them? About ur reviews for Ip4s and N9, Its like a baby gets a new toy and start writing assay on goodness. Anyway, for now PCWorld.com or any other site is preferable for reviews, not GSMArena.
I think the iP4S is a worthy upgrade even if you're already using an iP4.
Haters just find this hard to swallow. Lol!!!!
people saying this is a biased review are crazy, a review is just that, A REVIEW, if it turns out that the product itself is indeed a fantastic bit of kit with hardly any flaws then the review needs to state that is the case, otherwise it would be a dishonest and untrue review.
As for the prople mentioning the radio. . . Theres an app for that.
The comments in this are a complete joke.
A lot of people crying that the GSM Arena review of the iPhone 4S is wrong.
Why is it wrong? Have you used a 4S for the past week and tested every feature?? Have you??
Why are you all so annoyed that the iPhone 4S got such an amazing review?? You don't have one so how would you know how good it was? Because you don't have one all you can do is trust the professionals like GSM Arena.
I know you all wish the 4S would fail - but it doesn't. The sales are high and the reviews are high.
Stop all of your hating and get to realise that whether you like it or not - the iPhone 4S is among the greatest smartphone's on the market today.
