iPhone 4S Review


The iPhone 4S is the best disappointment Apple has ever released. The build-up to the company's next iPhone was so over the top, so astronomically hyped, that for some, anything short of the iPhone 6 would have been a letdown. When the 4S was...

Siri, carrier options, higher storage capacity, better battery, faster processor, 8-megapixel camera, 1080p Video

Siri doesn’t work offline -- in any capacity. 100 hour drop in battery’s standby time. Slow HDR photography. Some battery issues cropping up

If you’re looking for validation to upgrade, upgrade proudly. If you’re on a carrier that doesn’t cover your area well, upgrade and switch. If you’re on a 3GS, well, it shouldn’t even be a question. But if you’re knee-deep in a contract with your...

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'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

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 this fall. More...

Apple iPhone 4S (Verizon Wireless)


Apple just reported all-time record iPhone, iPad, and Mac sales. Surely the availability of the iPhone 4S on AT&T, Sprint, and Verizon had something to do with that. But of those three carriers, how does Verizon's phone stack up?

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

No 4G. Poor social-networking integration

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.

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.
