Apple's iPhone 4S 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 anyone ready to upgrade.

In regards to the star ratings:
- battery life isnt ideal; it's better than most, but can always be better.
- it's one of the most expensive smartphones on the market before subsidy. enough said.
- it's the easiest to use smartphone available: the printed instructions attest to that by being a fraction the size of competing phones in its class. the feature set is excellent as it can be used in full by the widest range of users while the market leading app store further increases it's capability.
- once design, build quality, and customer service and support are taken into account, it's a 5/5 star phone, able to overcome it's benign issues.
no, it's not the iPhone 5 that the most repugnant of tech "journalists" claimed was inevitably coming based on lies about "sources" and later bashed by the same for not being as such. those who are familiar with Apple and their iPhone line, however, expected what we received based on their previous release history. despite the negative reviews by an ignorant press, this is Apple's best iPhone ever, and the market clearly agrees.
despite the familiar exterior, both in dimensions and materials, the return of this design was warmly welcomed by the masses as a year later, it's still by far the most exclusive feeling smartphone on the market and will be remembered alongside the original iPhone, the Bondi Blue iMac, and the unibody MacBook Pro as one of their most memorable designs. it's truly a magnificent design in it's clean look, top quality materials, and luxurious feel, all assembled in a very tight, dense package that just oozes quality. while the look of it may be comforting in its familiarity, it's actually brand new on the inside.
starting with the processing unit, Apple upgraded to the ARM A9 core and then doubled them with it's A5 SoC processor. they also doubled up the cache to 1MB (512KB per core) to feed it and increased graphics performance by 5 times with the PowerVR 543 GPU. finally, they clocked this SoC processor to 1GHz and 512MB of RAM on a 200MHz bus to give you a phone with more graphics and computing power than a first generation Xbox. despite all of this computing power, it hardly uses any actual power: battery capacity went up only 2.5% while claimed runtimes were extended by hours, all thanks to an extremely efficient design of the SoC.
to ensure you never leave home without your point and shoot digital camera, the sensor has been upgraded to 8mp. people who know better know that megapixels arent everything, so they continued use of a backside illuminated sensor to ensure the most light possible for excellent low light imagery, well beyond that of the competition. the aperture has been stepped up to f2.4 over the iPhone 4's f2.8 stop, and feeding that much larger hole is an all-new lens package with IR and UV filters to produce more natural colors. with the faster CPU, the result is faster loading, shorter times between shots, and images that dont look like they came from a phone. to top it off, they upgraded the video recording to full 1080p.
and if you have no one to talk to, now you have Siri. it's API hooks reach deep into the system, allowing the user to manage their phone simply by one of the best voice recognition systems available. of course that makes the keyboard redundant with it's dictation accuracy.
despite more evolution than revolution, this evolutionary step is akin to going from neanderthal to homo sapien, with the Galaxy Nexus looking like a missing link.
