iPhone 4S Review : A look toward its features
Finally released on October 14th, the iPhone 4S has received all the charms that attract millions of attentions across the globe. This 4G phone is expected to be amongst the fastest on the markets. Well, this is the iPhone 4S which boasts same slim, sleek and easy-handling body. This phone has launched in the Dacota market with faster processor, a wonderful camera, an iconic virtual assistant and double storage feature as compared to its predecessor.
After the influence of 3G in the world, Apple is all set to draw every attention of people with its 4G offer. Saying that, it has been reported that Apple claims this phone is the most amazing iPhone ever. Is this so? Well, probably yes, since it has several points to consider which raises its credibility, but go through the below given specs before finalizing whether it’s really worth an upgrade or not.
The Siri Software
The iPhone 4S escorts in the world of iOS 5. It is the newest amendment of the mobile operating system of Apple and facilitates cleaning out a bit of dust without even changing the fundamentals. Siri is fortunately your own digital helper and is also an evolution of the Siri Virtual Assistant (a follow-up of a Darpa project which is called as CALO). Apple has bought this company in the year 2010 due to which it is just the Apple where Siri can be accommodated. An active data connection is required to use Siri and it will boast anthropomorphism. It’ll be upgraded with the same voice you’ve heard plenty of times in various GPS devices. Siri can actively do numerous things right from sending texts and emails to find you a fine restaurant with proper direction.
The best part of latest technology can be experienced through Siri. For instance, you want to text to your wife and said “say my wife to pick up Sarah right on time from dancing school”, Siri will do the same but with a little modification like “pick up Sarah from dancing school on time”. So, the question is how exactly Siri knows who your wife or Sarah is? Well, this is not a miracle. Siri will ask you at first about this and will remember the info you’ve given till the end. Easy isn’t it?
This can be exercised not just during sending the texts, but also while receiving the text. For say, you’ve said Siri to check the calendar and then you said “Reply, I’ll be there”, Siri will also remember who to reply and will function accordingly. This is something we can call as a technology revolution. It’s not just a device, but it’s more like a conversation, making your life easy and amazing.
Other than sending and receiving the texts and other features, Siri also has a good feature where you don’t have to remember any command. You can get all the directions on Google Navigation by simply saying “Get me directions to X” or you can also say “tell me how to get to X”. Siri does possess some of the best features we must say. When you receive a text message, Siri tells you that you’ve a new message and then promptly read it for you. All you need to do here is just reply by voice. However, emails cannot be read to you. Reply has to be triggered by operating with your fingers.
iPhone 4S has received familiar exterior, whereas, if we recollect the design of 4 which was unveiled in summer 2010, it was literally fabulous. People desired to touch it at least for once and hold it on their palms to see how it looks and how they feel holding in their hand. Likewise, this new piece has some captivating and finely crafted piece of machinery. This piece is slightly heavy than the 4, an increase which is noticeable from 137 grams to 140 grams. The 4S is very identical from the exterior, just some controls have been moved in millimeter. The phone shares same exterior antenna layout as the CDMA iPhone 4 has had.
It doesn’t matter whether you are in the middle of a call or not, the iPhone 4S has got potential to astutely and instantly switch between the exterior antennas. Though we are still unaware of the reviews of upgraded antennas, but while testing a Vodafone 4S with a 4, we have experienced that the 4S is more consistent and is one star higher than Vodafone. Same dual-core chip has been used which powers the iPad 2 and as Apple has said, this new phone runs at 800MHz. Nevertheless, a little step down than more from the 1GHz. RAM is still the same without change at 512MB, but the level of maximum storage capacity has increased which challenges a match with the iPod touch by jumping up at 64GB.
Internally, the changes can be found in the wireless network support. With every carrier 3G data will be offered and not 4G though 14.4Mbps HSPA+service of AT&T will offer you a great experience. Its 3.5 inch, 960 x 640 Retina Display.
Battery Life and Performance
A new battery pack has been revealed. Apple guarantees that the battery of this new phone can easily live up to 8 hours on an active 3G connection. On standby mode, it can survive for 200 hours on the 4S, a drop of 100 hours from the iPhone 4.
Apple feels itself quite proud with the launch of this innovative phone that boasts the most popular camera. The camara provides features to share the photos with the sites like Flickr. This new camera package offers increased megapixels – 8 megapixels. Other than this, f/2.4 aperture is the best feature that this phone offers.
This new iPhone is available in the market with its starting price at $199 for 16GB and goes till $399 for 64GB. The question arises is whether or not this phone is worth the price as it is identical to iPhone 4. Well, this phone is very much similar to 4, but a lot has changed internally. With three times increased processor, the iPhone 4S enables users to browse the net faster. It also provides a stunning experience with its amazing gaming graphics.
