Apple iPhone 4S 16GB

see deals

A killer smartphone. The 4S is a turbocharged iPhone 4, packing loads more power, a sharper and better camera, and a voice command AI that could change the way you use your phone.

THE GOOD

Blazingly fast, Siri voice commands, top usability, excellent camera, faster data transfer, high res screen

THE BAD

Reuses the iPhone 4 design, 3.5" screen is starting to feel small, no Flash support, pricey

The juiciest fruit in the orchard

In short, the iPhone 4S is a superb mobile; the digital PA app is a unique selling point, and the 8MP camera is fantastic. Unfortunately, the battery life leaves a lot to be desired but, in reality, this can only be expected from an Apple phone.

What We Like

There’s a lot to be said about Apple’s latest release, the iPhone 4S; whilst it may not look any different from its predecessor at first glance, the company have made some vast improvements.

The most obvious of these is the inclusion of Siri, a digital assistant that acts like your very own PA. This feature makes the mobile one of the most advanced devices available on the market right now, as more and more people discover the joys of this voice activated app that will answer pretty much any question you could care to throw at it, as well as take your orders too.

With a dual core A5 chip, you can be sure that the latest iPhone is up to the task of performing. Not only did we find that the majority of commands can occur twice as quickly now, we were pleased to discover that graphic speeds are an amazing 7 times quicker here in comparison to the 4S.

As we would expect from a phone of this calibre, the Apple iPhone 4S has an 8MP camera, making it perfect for capturing precious moments. Due to the operating system, iOS 5, these photos can be adjusted and corrected straight away, before uploading on to social networking sites such as Facebook.

Connecting to other devices has never been easier, as the iPhone 4s has been given Bluetooth 4.0. This is something we have never seen before on a mobile, and it is definitely a worthwhile upgrade; transferring data is a lot quicker now, and it takes less of a toll on the battery life, as it uses less power.

One of the most major flaws found with the iPhone 4 was its inability to make phone calls. Thankfully Apple seem to have addressed this problem here, equipping the 4S with two antennas, giving their fan base far better reception than they had before.

What We Don't Like

Overall, there is very little negativity surrounding the iPhone 4S. We found that the 3.5 inch touch screen is a little on the small side in comparison to that that are found on the many Android mobiles out there, but this is a slight issue really.

The main thing here to consider is the mobile’s battery life; with all of the features that Apple have got going on, you would think that they would have supplied the iPhone 4S with a powerful battery. Sadly though, this isn’t the case, and the majority of users will find themselves needing to recharge daily, which may be more than a little irritating if nothing else.

Conclusion

There is no doubt in our minds that Apple have produced a brilliant phone here; the digital personal assistant is a superb feature that will have many entranced, and the reception has been vastly improved too with the inclusion of two antennas, instead of the standard one. The battery life on this mobile leaves a lot to be desired but, as long as you can be sure that you won’t be too far from an electrical socket for any length of time, this shouldn’t be too much of an issue.

Best phone ever. More than you might want from a phone.

10out of 10

Contrary to what most people believe, the Apple iPhone 4 is not any other iPhone bent on wasting cell phone users’ money out of nothing. In fact, among the iPhone releases, this is by far the most impressive. It tries to improve reception issues that the other iPhone predecessors have by having two antennas. It may be too much on the pocket and its battery life may be disappointing, however features such as a dual core processor, a powerful 8 megapixel camera, voice-activated Siri intelligent assistant, iOS 5, iCloud, among others, there are just too many reasons why people would want to get their hands on this phone.

Indeed the Apple iPhone 4S is just the kind of phone everybody needs. From entertainment, connectivity, communication, among others, the phone has been designed to deliver every single mobile phone necessity one can imagine. It may look just the same with the Apple iPhone 4, this version sports high camera specs and bigger memory capacity. It operates using the iPhone OS version 5 and allows a wide range of connectivity options.if it is power and style that you are looking for in a phone, then the Apple iPhone 4S will definitely top your list.

My friend is a big Blackberry fan and when the Blackberry 9300 curve was released she was very estatic. It has all the Blackberry features that she adores but it comes cheap. Well, talk about convenience.

Finally, I have already phone a gadget that mixes all the my techie needs. It is not only superb for connectivity, it also has fantastic sound quality and video and picture quality. The Apple iPhone 4s, by far, has been able to give the satusfaction I have been looking for in a phone.

This is a good phone... The camera is great with an 8 megapix. The applications are a lot and a very clear screen resolution. I dislike the battery tho, very easily drained... Only lasts 18hrs on average. I turned everything off, like wifi and gprs and don't use much interent... I will give this phone a 7.5 rating...

This phone is a fab! I mean, it's made by Apple and they make the best and most elegant phones and high tech and they've been copied a lot by other companies! Really, nothing compares to an iPhone! I just bought this and I'm really happy to have it! My friends envy me for it! Go grab it guys!

I think most people hate iPhones because of the people that hate it. I was one of them. But when I started using it I was really amazed. It is fast and its features are really good. I was just disappointed with the fact that it is not so versatile when it comes to accommodating apps. Other than that I think it is fine.

This phone is very popular now adays, the best selling phone. Its features and performance is really worth it despite the price.

A very horrible experience I did encounter buying this phone, it is all about the hardware issues that I have this phone for a few weeks and it started to show some defects and I need to repair it. What I waste of money.

Yes it is a nice phone but I am not comfortable with this phone because it is big and risky to carry inside the pocket.

4s is really a master for games and applications, the silver border of note can be easy scratch after months and that silver paint cums easily and the end it don’t look like a iphnone anymore.

IPhone 4S has one of the best quality hardware used. Better quality than any other phone in the same price range. And the operating system helps the phone to work smoothly. This phone is faster than the Samsung Galaxy S2 and also it faster than the HTC One X According to the results by Android Authority. So please think twice before you doubt or comment on the quality of Apple phones.

8.5out of 10

Bluetooth , is the biggest problem. If you wish to send files from one iPhone to another iPhone via blue tooth, Apple would not allow you to do that. The only way for that to be possible is if you jailbreak your iPhone , I personally have had no problems with bluetooth on the iPhone 4S. I have it paired with two bluetooth speakers, two mono headsets, three transmitters, and two bluetooth stereo headphones and never for once did I encounter any failure in connecting to any of those devices.

If you choose to activate iCloud, your contacts, documents, and data will be stored and shared with another Device that is activated with the same Apple ID. Also, you can go to icloud.com on your PC or Mac, sign in using your Apple ID and password and you will also be able to view and edit your contacts list online. There are other things that you can do whilst on icloud.com so go and check that out.

The iPhone comes preloaded with ringtones and alerts. Most of them are unique only to the iPhone, so anyone would know that your phone is an iPhone when it rings. Also, you can customize any song to become your ringtone. There are even many free apps available on the App Store that you can use to trim segments of a song and convert them into .m4r files which the iPhone will accept. Any owner of an iPhone would know where to go and what to do next to set personal ringtones, so I will not go any further.

I just got mine, hope wont regret getting this phone. Due to my excitement. Can anyone help me coz this phone don’t want to accept my password for icloud. Don’t know if I have just mis spell my password but cant really log in. Id like to enjoy using this phone. To all iphone users out there, is there anyway that I could create a new account with so that I can enjoy downloading from I tunes and I cloud.

8out of 10

One benefit of jail breaking the I Phone is getting it unlocked as well but not by Apple, so better check first if the I Phone has been jail broken. But it also does not mean one cannot jailbreak a factory unlocked I Phone.

I once tried to sync a paid app from my I Phone onto my father's I Phone, and that was what exactly happened. My father and mother both have I Phones and even share the same laptop to sync them with, but they have separate usernames on that laptop as well as separate iTunes applications and iTunes folders because they each have their own Apple ID's.

8out of 10

Their must be a way. The thing is if you plug I phone into comp it syncs with your I tunes so you cant get the apps off. What about another comp to get the apps off then copy them apps to an sd card to transfer to your computer import the apps into your I tunes then wipe I phone, when you sync the whole lot will go across.

Apple has only one thing better which is look against Samsung where as talk of camera Samsung 5mp camera is equal to 8mp camera of apple Samsung super amoled touch screen is better touch screen in the world apple phone do video calls only over wifi but Samsung phones do video calls over sims and wifi.

8out of 10

Apple I phone and Samsung fans are too fast in calling it bashing, none is allowed to point out weaknesses in the respective products. It’s a fact that I phone is way too much restricted with no user control over what you legally paid for, and it’s a fact that Samsung has many flawed phones, the Galaxy S being the most flawed phone to date, the navigation still don’t work.

8out of 10

If you have money to spare, I think getting an iPhone is really not a bad choice. It is very efficient and works well. however, if you already have the an older iphone version, buying a newer one is not really that wise because the difference is not really that much.

Just wondering what was the S for. If you know what I mean. LOL! There is no reason at all for Apple to have to change the name!

So I reviewed the app in iTunes, and to quote: This is a bftiaueul RSS reader and arguably produces the best rendering of cached articles since the late if not always lamented Printful. It's incredibly comprehensive and as a result perhaps a little intimidating at first use. For instance, while RssBook syncs seamlessly with Google Reader it's a bit disconcerting to be confronted with 5000-odd articles when your Google account is always upto date! This results in a fair amount of clutter at timesThere are also some noticeable short-comings. There's no obvious mark all as read button (you need to select unread only using the filter icon). Frustratingly the app doesn't remember filter setting I'm a bit OCD obessive and filter feeds by Label and then Feeds (so as to mirror my Google settings), but everytime you relaunch, the UI resets to default. Finally, for an app that is so detailed, the inability to drill and pull the linked web page into cache if the RSS feed itself is truncated seems a bit of an omission?Still I'll give this 3/5 for the moment and given as the developer appears to have a list of updates up his sleeve, I'll similarly update this review To be fair only Byline really seems to have mastered the seamless caching of webpages behind RSS feeds it takes a little longer to sync as a result, but at 30 000 ft there generally isn't a lot of wi-fi around so it's my #1 choice for offline reading. The biggest issue for me is that the app doesn't remember filter settings hopefully the next update will fix this?

I am soglad they did! Mine is a 3GS that my huansbd bought me for our wedding anniversary. If it is any help, my white I-phone is now dressed in a flowery Liberty-type cover from Accessorize that my youngest daughter offered me! So perhaps you could look for a cover that protects your i-phone and makes it look, let's say, different? whiter:) Oh well! I understand!

The likelihood that a loss will occur. The higher the probability that an incident will occur that will create a loss your insurance QuotesChimp will have to pay for, the greater the risk to the company and, thus, the higher the premium. (Higher risk equals higher premiums.) For example, if you have three drunk-driving convictions in the last four months, your auto insurer will believe, with justification, that your likelihood of getting into an accident and in�curring a loss is very high. As a result of their in�creased risk of loss, you will incur higher premiums. Conversely, if your driving record is spotless, your premiums should go down with the insurance com�pany's reduced risk.
