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.

Apple iPhone 4S
Apple's iPhone 4S has a faster processor (A5 chip) and an upgraded camera, all the benefits of iOS 5, and SIRI, a useful and immensely fun voice assistant. Call quality on some providers is admirable, and the data speeds, while certainly not 4G, get the job done.
Poor battery life. It's about time we get a larger screen. Not completely fixed antenna reception problems in spite of dual antenna.
With a dual-core processor, upgraded 8 megapixel camera with Full HD video recording, the latest iOS 5, iCloud and the voice-activated Siri intelligent assistant, there's plenty of reasons to regard the new phone. Expensive and technically it hasn't got very much that rival handsets haven't, but it's the best that Apple have ever made. In fact that makes it very good.
The iPhone 4S has the same glass and metal construction as the i phone 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.
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 i fone 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.
The new A5 dual-core processor (as seen in the iPad 2) makes things noticeably faster. Apps launch quicker, web pages load faster, multi-tasking is more fluid and resource-hungry apps like Pages now allow you to edit documents without any lag. Competitors will argue that their phones have been able to produce similar results for months, and they'd be right, but it remains a little upgrade.
Conclusion: The iPhone 4S isn't the king of cell phones, but it's part of the royal family nonetheless. Even without 4G and a fair screen, this phone's smart voice assistant, SIRI, the benefits of iOS 5, and its spectacular camera make it a top choice for anyone ready to upgrade.

Our camera team has spent some professional time with the iPhone 4S, so check out our in-depth findings of the snapper.
The iPhone 4S caught many by surprise, with Apple expected to release the iPhone 5 - but instead we got an iPhone 4 with overhauled innards.
While the masses were initially disappointed, the iPhone 4S features a glut of top-end tech that is designed to put it on a par with the likes of the Samsung Galaxy S2 - but does it manage to do that?
The changes to the iPhone 4S are easy to document - the camera has been upgraded to 8MP (with an improved aperture ratio), the CPU is now the same dual-core A5 processor as seen in the iPad 2, and a seven time increase in graphical processing power.
Also we've got Siri, Apple's voice recognition service - will this be a game changer for mobile phones or will it be nothing more than a gimmick?
As we've mentioned, the iPhone 4S is almost identical in outward design to the iPhone 4, which might irk those that like to show that they've got the most up to date device from Apple when out and about with friends.
However, the flip side of this is that things like the plethora of iPhone 4 covers on the market at the moment will still fit.
Apple has slightly changed the design of the iPhone 4S somewhat though, by changing to a dual-band aerial design, making sure it doesn't encounter an embarrassing repeat of antenna-gate we had to endure with the iPhone 4.
For all those that haven't seen the older version of the phone, we'll take you on a tour of the new handset: the top of the iPhone 4S houses the power/lock button, as well as the headphone jack, plus a microphone for noise cancellation.
The right-hand side of the phone is devoid of any buttons, but holds the slot for the micro SIM card, which pops out using the included tool (or a paperclip).
The bottom of the phone is pretty standard, with the Apple connector and dual speakers which pump out the (actually quite decent) sound.
The left-hand side of the phone sees the rounded volume keys, with the top one of these also acting as the camera shutter button to make it easy to snap with the new iPhone. We've also got the silencer switch too, which has been slightly moved upwards from the previous iteration.
As you can see, Apple has altered its antenna band technology to move the gaps that plagued the iPhone 4's reception to a less-touchable location.
The iPhone 4S comes with iOS 5.
The iPhone 4S is the flagship model for the new iOS software from Apple, making it much snazzier once more.
We'll walk you through the big changes to start with - and Notifications is up there with the best of them.
The new system apes Android by using a drop down menu from pretty much anywhere in the phone to let you see all manner of updates, weather news and messages, plus new notifications will now ping across the top of the screen rather than plopping straight into the middle of the screen like before and disrupting whatever you were doing.
It's not revolutionary by any means, but it's well-integrated and makes the whole system feel a whole lot different to iOS 4.
The lock screen is now called into more use than ever before too, with new notifications sitting on top to be easily accessed without needing to mess about inside the phone.
2ND HALF TO COME SOON! THANKS, WE HOPED YOU ENJOYED OUR REVIEW OF THE IPHONE 4S. ANY QUESTIONS, FEEL FREE TO ASK!!!
I own the iphone 4S and I looooove it! I do not have service through AT&T or Apple. Instead I have my service set up on mobile WIFI so I can use my home or office internet connection, or use Skype wherever I can get a satellite connection and still have it work great as a regular telephone, when WIFI is not available. I use Virgin Mobile for regular cell phone service. Now that they've updated their technology, I can finally use my iphone with Virgin, Yes!!! You can use a 3G network, or facilitate any WIFI connection to which you have access. The internet is fast for a cell phone.
I use this to erase all my junk mail and unwanted messages instead of the laptop computer. I can move through my inbox faster with the touch screen technology. The screen is clearer than that of my laptop computer, great graphic quality sooo easy to use. When I want to get online and not have to boot up a computer, I use this instead. Good rugged design is able to handle a lot of abuse and keep on ticking. If I had to ask for improvements. I would ask for a screen that's easier to keep clean and improved battery life. Maybe even a standard USB port on the side to import media from your computer without the use of itunes. While ipad, ipod or iphone will never fully replace a regular computer and can't even compare. When a laptop computer is to heavy to carry along, iphone is defiantly the next best thing.
I bought this phone because I had finally reached the point where I was utilizing my iPod touch more and more and I wanted the features I had on the touch to have better quality (i.e.-camera,certain apps,etc.). Plus it was a handful having it AND my old phone. That and I was already established with iTunes and it was very easy to transfer my stuff to the phone.
I love the camera. Pics are clear and bright. I am having a lot of fun with just using the phone itself creating my personal ringtones and pics. I keep finding all kinds of little things either in Settings or one of the built in apps that are actually useful to me. I LOVE facetime. It allows me to see my family (who have iphones) that are out of town. I wish it worked between all smartphones though.
The messagaing app is fun. I do wish we could create wallpapers for it like you can on the free texting apps. That I find frustrating.
The home button seems to stick sometimes and I'll have to push it a couple of times. Lately safari has been missing my bookmarks. I find I have to turn off then on the phone to retrieve it. Don't know what that is...
Overall I am very happy with the phone and look forward to filling all 64BG with music and pics.
