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 ;...

MicroSIM card support only ; No Flash support in the web browser ; No true multitasking for all applications ; FaceTime video calls work only over Wi-Fi ; No file transfer over Bluetooth or USB Mass Storage mode (independent from iTunes) ; No FM radio...

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...

iPhone 4S review

 

Apple clearly has a winner with its best iPhone to date, but if you were gunning for the iPhone 5, you'll be best continuing the wait.

Great performance ; Improved camera ; Siri could, eventually, change the game ; Broader carrier compatibility

Zero visual differentiation ; No LTE

Verizon Wireless iPhone 4S review: Verizon Wireless iPhone 4S

 

Verizon Wireless iPhone 4S

Apple's ; has a faster processor and an upgraded camera, all the benefits of iOS 5, and a useful and immensely fun voice assistant. Call quality on the Sprint model is admirable, and the data speeds, while certainly not 4G, get the job done.

It's about time we get a larger screen.

The iPhone 4S isn't the king of cell phones, but it's part of the royal family nonetheless. Even without 4G and a giant screen, this phone's smart(ass) voice assistant, Siri, the benefits of iOS 5, and its spectacular camera make it a top choice for...

Apple iPhone 4S (Cricket Wireless)

 

The iPhone 4S is the most powerful handset on Cricket, but it isn't available in all Cricket cities and it costs too much.

Beautiful screen. Terrific app market. Easy to use.

Very expensive. Not available in several major Cricket cities.

Conclusions The Cricket Wireless iPhone is the least expensive iPhone 4S model available with an unlimited calling plan, if you factor in the cost of the service plan over two years. But while it's a good phone, it's too expensive compared with other...

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...

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.

Apple iPhone 4S (Sprint)

 

What do you do with your phone? If you're like most Americans, you make some calls, take some photos, and send some texts. Maybe you kill time with some games, check Facebook or Twitter, and look things up on the Web. If that's you, then the iPhone 4S...

Excellent Web speeds. Terrific camera. Solid call quality. Siri is intriguing. Lots of apps

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

The Apple iPhone 4S for Sprint makes it easy to call, take photos, surf the Web and play games the tasks that most people want to accomplish with their smartphones.
