- Smaller size of the screen
- No flash integration
The Apple iPhone 4S is a subtle upgrade to the iPhone 4 . It wasn’t a next generation launch of the iPhone. However it does contain user specific upgrades like expanding the model to 64 GB and also inclusion of the benefits of the iOS 5. A hybrid IR filter is also onboard for better color accuracy. Further feature add on included the Siri, a robotic voice assistant which adds to the voice assistant option on the iPhone. The iPhone 4S definitely is an upgraded iPhone with lots of user friendly features, but a definite miss is the smaller screen on it.
Design And Build:
The Apple iPhone 4S remains one of the most attractive smartphones to have ever been built. Apple's choice of materials and its manufacturing prowess are unmatched.The iPhone 4S has the same glass and metal construction as the iPhone 4 . You won't find any creaks or loose parts, and the only plastic used on the phone is for the home button below the display.Its smaller dimensions make it feel very dense and solid in your hand. Apple's use of glass for both the front and back of the phone may be questioned by those who tend to drop their phones often, as it has a tendency to shatter, despite it being reinforced.The smoothness of the glass gives you the feeling that you are holding a premium device when you pick it up. Apple has covered both the front and back glass panels with an oleophobic coating that resists face grease and fingerprints better than any other smartphone.
The iPhone 4S features a new 8-megapixel camera with an f/2.4 lens and a backside illuminated sensor that is 73 percent more sensitive to light than the already impressive 5-megapixel sensor found in the iPhone 4. It features autofocus, with face detection, and a flash, and can record 1080p HD video with digital image stabilization. Apple also claims that the new camera is significantly faster (to launch and to shoot) than before, and much faster than the competition. Photos are captured with accurate color and gobs of detail, and the interface is simple to use. The camera opens with minimal lag, and it is possible to bang out shot after shot without it slowing down between images.Unfortunately, Apple stuck with the VGA resolution front-facing found on the iPhone 4 for the iPhone 4S, but it gets the job done for video calling purposes.
The iPhone 4S' display is noticeably different than the Super AMOLED Plus screens from Samsung, as it's not nearly as saturated and punchy. However, the colors seem more accurate, and the screen is just a joy to look at.It's still nonetheless one of the best LCD screens on the market, with its 640 x 960 pixels of resolution and near paper-like viewing angles.
The Apple iPhone 4S runs on iOS 5 software which is pretty smooth. Apple iPhone 4S is a slick and fast smartphone that offers decent performance.It's 1.0 GHz Dual Core Processor gives amazing speed and performance. Also the 512MB RAM makes it's performance fast and easy.
Power On It:
The iPhone 4 offered impressive battery life, and the iPhone 4S carries on that tradition.With 1428 mAh it gives naerly 15hrs of battery life which is really good compared to other smartphones.The iPhone 4S easily outpaces most any Android smartphone, but it doesn't beat the best ones by a large margin.
The Apple iPhone 4S features a superb design, a fantastic display and offers excellent performance along with some very well designed software.It improves upon the massively successful iPhone 4 , and takes the crown as the best smartphone you can get. It is not perfect, but Apple's blend of an easy-to-use interface and stellar construction add up to a great smartphone.
