iPhone 4S AT&T Phone Review: everybody were waiting for the iPhone 5 and apple announces the 4S, which is just a little better than its predecessor. Of course, the iPhone 4S has been pre-ordered in the millions as some people still can't get enough of apple when there are far superior products in the Android market. So what did Apple change in the iPhone release? The iPhone 4S is faster and its major novelty revolves around voice recognition. This phone features a new iPhone voice assistant that understands natural-language questions and commands, and will take dictation. Clearly a cool feature, but not worth the hoopla in our opinion.
Here's more features we noted on the new iPhone 4S: for starters, it is a true world cell phone working on the following frquencies: CDMA 850, 1900; GSM 850, 900, 1800, 1900; WCDMA 850, 900, 1900 and 2100. It measures 4.5" x 2.31" x 0.37" for 4.9 ounces. The internal battery can last 8 hours of talk time and 200 hours of stand-by. Like the previous model it has 64GB of internal memory and can be used as a wi-fi spot. The screen is 3.5 inches with 16.7 million (24-bit) colors. It is a Bluetooth version 4.0+HS enabled cell phone. The built-in camera sports a 8+ megapixel resolution with auto-focus, touch-to-focus, face detection and LED flash. It also features video capture with 1080p HD resolution and with image stabilization.
Furthermore, the Apple iPhone 4S carries a dual core Apple 5 processor, making quite fast for web browsing and data downloads. Like all iPhones it features built-in GPS with Geo-Tagging. Emails supported are POP, IMAP, Exchange with
built-in attachment viewer (Microsoft Office, PDF). The same phone is also available with other networks (Sprint and Verizon); AT&T sells it starting at $199.99.
Bottom line: is this the best iPhone ever made? yes. Is it much different from the previous iPhone 4? Somewhat, but nothing close to what consumers were expecting with the iPhone 5. POur suggestion, sit this one out, wait for the 5th version; if not, try Android smartphones which already carry more features than the iPhone 4S.
