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.
Did i miss it, or they didn't mention battery life?
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.

Check for yourself. Reply me which one is smoother in browser.
I am not sure siri makes Iphone upper hand than sgs 2 or entire android phones, I read the review in phone arena they said it can compete with others and rate it arround 8 to 9 but sgs 2 already had 10 so I am not sure how gsm arena find some of the lack like flash and 4g lte is not so downgrade of Iphone...and more over it looks like the same design..
Wow.. Great review as ever.. :)
By reading news in all other sites, I really had started believing 4S is not good and up to the mark.. You have done a great job..
Last Sentence, just awesome..
Siri: Wait… there are other phones?
Keep it going guys..
People keep going on about the iPhone 5 - There will be no iPhone 5 as the 4s is the 5th model made (2g, 3g, 3gs, 4, 4s) And Apple have only made 2 different shapes. The next iPhone will be the iPhone 6 or some other name as I doubt they will keep using different numbers as it will get silly
I really don't get what spectacular browser performance people are talking about? My stock Galaxy S II gets in Opera Mobile about 91000 in BrowserMark and about 1600 in Sun Spider test. What's more important, someone here already posted a video of side-by-side real life browser comparison, in which SII is clearly better. And this even with the slower stock browser and whithout the optimizations of the Ice Cream Sandwich. Basically, the only trump iPhone has is it's graphics chip, which will probobably be useless for a while anyway, since developpers would not want to lose the weaker iPhone 4 market.

Great review from GSM Arena. So from what I understand the review says,
iPhone 4S has:
Best Looks/Design - review page 2
Best Reception for calls - review page 4
Best Screen - review page 2
Best Touchscreen interface - review page 3
Best Camera - review page 6
Best Audio/Music player - review page 5
Best App store - review page 11
Best Storage - 16GB, 32GB, 64GB,
Fastest Browser - review page 7
Fastest Graphics - review page 3
Best Accessibility - review page 9
So can we say that the iPhone 4S is the BEST SMARTPHONE CURRENTLY ON THE MARKET??
I think so.
Anonymous, 22 Oct 2011I hate to argue with gsmarena but I'd say I also feel that their review is biased. they sai... morefirstly iphone needs no advertisement. Anyone inc apple say iphone is the fastest or strongest mobile in the world but that power with ios gives the best user experience. I have a lg optimus black and used sgs 2 but any of them can match up with iphone in terms of usability. Only thing I prefer android is flash support.
hats off to you guys at gsmarena... great and totally indepth review... i have read iphone 4s review on other sites but no site even comes close to you.. great work guys... and the review had an awesome end to it!!!
Well, since GSMarena didn't compare iPhone 4S shots' to SGS II and N9, who is the best 8MP cameraphone now? I'm not convinced when they say its the best 8MP cameraphone around. And also, I want to pit it against Nokia N8 and other 8MP camera out there in a same condition to see who is the real best 8MP cameraphone.
If iPad 2 GL is faster than 4S, this device is bad!
I have iPad 2 top model and i don't like some slow reactions in GL or browsing modes...
iPad 2 loose benchmarks vs SGS2 in all time...
•iOS 5 with iCloud integration (a trick to get more money cause free 5Gb is a ridiculous amount for 1080p videos)
•Quad-band GSM and quad-band 3G support with 14.4 Mbps HSDPA and 5.76 Mbps HSUPA (gs2 21Mps)
•Dual-band CDMA and CDMA2000 1xEV-DO support (costs reduction cause apple make only one model)
•3.5" 16M-color LED-backlit IPS TFT capacitive touchscreen of 640 x 960 px resolution (Very good, but same "little" sized LG screen that previous iphone)
•Scratch-resistant glass front and rear, with fingerprint-resistant coating (Scratch resistant? Not gorilla glass)
•1GHz dual-core ARM Cortex A9 CPU, PowerVR SGX543MP2 GPU, Apple A5 SoC (800MHz)
•512MB of RAM ( 1 Gb is now the standard)
•Voice recognition, Siri virtual assistant (previous models not supported to make you upgrade if you wannt it)
•8 MP autofocus camera with LED flash and touch focus
•1080p video recording at 30fps (one of the best cameras on the market, but not de best)
•Wi-Fi 802.11b/g/n, Wi-Fi hotpsot
•GPS with A-GPS connectivity; digital compass (Google powered, lol)
•16/32/64GB storage options (Where is the micro SD slot)
•Accelerometer, proximity sensor and a three-axis gyro sensor
•Active noise cancellation with a dedicated secondary microphone
•Standard 3.5 mm audio jack, stereo Bluetooth v4.0
•Excellent audio quality (i agree, but not the best in the market)
•Slim waistline at only 9.3mm (sgs2 8.5 and 116 g weight)
•Secondary front-facing VGA camera (are you kidding us? Sgs2 2Mp)
•Built-in Picture and Video editors
•Rich AppStore(Appstore for rich people)
•New antenna design and improved signal reception in poor signal areas = Samsung designed antenna, and no more antennagate.
Is a good phone, no doubt about it, but please, stop brainwashing people.
"Siri is very bad with accents."
So, unless you're a native of the US, Canada, or the UK, Siri will not work for you. Sad.
