Apple iPhone 4S review

 

Apple iPhone 4S Review: T3's run down of the best Apple iPhone 4S features, specs, some info on the iPhone 4S design and processor and of course, Siri

Faster processor ; Siri ; 64GB storage

Still expensive ; No iTunes in the Cloud (yet)

So, as previously mentioned, the iPhone 4S is the most powerful and feature-packed phone that Apple has ever made. The camera, processor and antenna are all well-needed improvements. And Siri is eccentric genius, if a little before its time. However,...

Same shape, different brain - is it enough of a change?

Great camera ; Fast processor ; Superb graphics and screen ; Slick OS ; Solid feel in the hand ; Siri voice recognition

Costly ; No flash integration ; Outdated contacts menu

Let's make no bones about it: the iPhone 4S is one of the best phones on the market at the moment, and the best thing Apple has ever created.

Updated: Our camera team has spent some professional time with the iPhone 4S, so check out our in-depth findings of the snapper.

Great camera ; fast processor ; superb graphics ; slick OS ; quality screen ; Solid feel in the hand ; Siri voice recognition

Costly ; No flash integration ; Outdated contacts menu

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. Next Page: Interface

iPhone 4S review

 

Hype surrounds no device like the iPhone. Love it or loathe it, you certainly can't deny the impact that Apple and the iPhone has had on mobile phones as we know them. The arrival of the iPhone 4S ushers in only the fifth mobile phone that Apple has...

Quality design, new iOS 5 features keep it competitive, PC-free living, new camera is excellent

There isn't a huge change from the previous version, battery needs careful management

It may not be the most thrilling upgrade ever, but Apple has put some thought into making the iPhone more useful, and has largely succeded in improving it hugely. Siri and the new camera are the two main improvements in the device, and both are useful...

So the iPhone 4S is finally here. We take an in depth look at how it stacks up.

Still the slickest smartphone experience ; New camera features are great

Smaller screen than the competition ; Still no Flash support

The bottom is home to the standard Apple charging and syncing dock and it's flanked by the microphone and speaker, the latter of which remains one of the better ones available. Up top, meanwhile, is the headphone socket, noise cancelling microphone and...

iPhone 5 vs iPhone 4S comparison review

 

The iPhone 5 has finally been announced by Apple and it looks as if the Californian company has really gone to town on some of its features. Here we are putting some of the new iPhone 5's key features up against its predecessor the iPhone 4 in what we...

It's easy to say that the iPhone 5 is a better phone than the iPhone 4, the specs and the upgraded iOS tells you that. The real question here is whether the iPhone 5 is worth the extra money. If you don't already have an iPhone 4S/44, but you want to...

iPhone 4S review

 

The Apple iPhone 4S is more a running upgrade to the popular iPhone 4: read our Apple iPhone 4S review to discover the faster dual-core processor, better camera and optics and new antennae – UPDATED 2 DECEMBER 2011

Since iOS 5 is available for free, there’s not a huge reason for existing iPhone users to upgrade to the 4S. If, however you’re not sold on Android, then there are enough features here, including Siri, its sharp display and superb camera, for you to...

Follow this link for our extensive coverage of Apple iOS 5 - the new operating system for all current iPhone models.

It's hugely expensive, but well worth it if you can afford it. It's fast, has a great camera (and video capabilities). Siri isn't quite there yet, but in time, it should be an invaluable time saver

Apple iPhone 4S hands-on

 

The iPhone 4S looks the same as the iPhone 4, but it packs a speedier processor, a beefed-up camera and some new features. Overall, it's a minor upgrade to the iPhone 4, so will it be enough to keep Android at bay?

Faster processor ; 8-megapixel camera ; Siri voice-controlled software

Minor upgrade to the iPhone 4
