iPhone 4S Review

 

To make a long story short, the iPhone 4S is about the camera, the processor speed and Siri. You can get all the other software features on an iPhone 4. The extra speed is pretty awesome when it comes to gaming but for more ordinary tasks, it is not as...

Apple iPhone 4S (Virgin Mobile)

 

Virgin Mobile's iPhone 4S is less expensive over time than iPhones on other carriers, but much too costly when you consider the other phones in Virgin's lineup.

The cheapest iPhone 4S available today, if you include the plan price.

No 4G. Much more expensive than other Virgin Mobile smartphones.

Conclusions The Virgin Mobile iPhone is the least expensive iPhone 4S model available, if you factor in the cost of the service plan. But while it's a good phone, it isn't a good deal right now. We're just a few months away from a new iPhone launch...

Apple iPhone 4S (Verizon Wireless)

 

The Apple iPhone 4S for Verizon Wireless is the carrier's best iPhone yet—but a lack of 4G keeps it from the top of the heap.

Fast Web speeds. Top-notch camera. Solid call quality. Tons of apps.

No 4G. Poor social-networking integration.

Data Speeds and Conclusions Judging from the results we collected last year in our testing for the Fastest Mobile Networks , Verizon's LTE network is the fastest, largest 4G network in the U.S. Unfortunately, the iPhone 4S is a 3G device, so it isn't...

Apple iPhone 4S (AT&T)

 

The Apple iPhone 4S for AT&T is the fastest iPhone there is, but the world is moving to 4G.

Excellent Web speeds. Simultaneous voice and data. Terrific camera. Solid call quality. Siri is intriguing. Lots of apps.

No 4G. Poor social-networking integration. On-screen keyboard is quite small.

Data Speeds and Conclusions Judging from the results we collected earlier this year in our testing for the Fastest Mobile Networks, we found that AT&T has the fastest 3G network in the U.S. That means the iPhone 4S, a 3G device, should be faster on...

Apple iPhone 4S review: Fast 4ward

 

The 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.

iOS 5 with iCloud integration ; Quad-band GSM and quad-band 3G support with 14.4 Mbps HSDPA and 5.76 Mbps HSUPA ; Dual-band CDMA and CDMA2000 1xEV-DO support ; 3.5" 16M-color LED-backlit IPS TFT capacitive touchscreen of 640 x 960 px resolution ;...

Apple iPhone 4S (Verizon Wireless)

 

Despite the familiar design, the iPhone 4S boats an appreciably faster dual-core processor, a first-class camera, and a truly innovative voice-controlled assistant.

Speedy dual-core A5 processor ; Siri is smart ; Fast, bright, and sharp camera ; iCloud baked in ; Best arsenal of apps ; Good voice quality

Lacks 4G data speeds ; Display relatively small

Despite the same outward appearance, the iPhone 4S is a marked improvement over Apple's last device. You will notice the difference that the dual-core A5 processor and the bright and sharp 8-MP camera makes. iOS 5, iCloud, and Apple's unrivaled...

iPhone 4S over iPhone 4: Should I stay or should I go?

 

A lot of people are wondering which iPhone is the right one for them - both people looking to upgrade their own one and people who are just joining the Apple phone party. How much more do you get with the 4S, over the iPhone 4? If you're wondering just...

Apple iPhone 4S (AT&T) Review

 

Yes, it's a dead ringer for the iPhone 4, but the iPhone 4S serves as a reminder that true innovation is never skin deep. With Siri, Apple has managed to make voice control not only natural but cool. The sharper and brighter camera, smooth 1080p...

Dual-core powerhouse, Siri is a game-changer, Fast, bright, and sharp camera, iOS 5 and iCloud built in, Relatively long battery life

Lacks 4G data speeds, No Facebook integration, Photo Stream only works over Wi-Fi

iPhone 4S Review (AT&T): A Solid Update

 

The iPhone 4S ('00 for 16GB with a two-year contract from AT&T) might not be the most exciting iPhone to date, but don't write it off: The improved camera, faster processor, and the addition of the Siri personal assistant make for one powerful...

Faster, smoother performance ; Superb camera ; Beautiful display still better than competition

You can only upload video in 1080p ; Siri not always accurate

The iPhone 4S might not be the most exciting update, but the improved camera, faster performance and the addition of Siri make it a top-ranking smartphone.
