iPhone 4S was officially revealed on October 4 by Tim Cook. Everybody was expecting an iPhone 5 but instead Apple Inc. startled us by announcing the iPhone 4S.
iPhone 4S has many advantages over its predecessor iPhone 4. Lets take a look what those advantages are down below.
Looks and display:
iPhone 4S carries the same looks of iPhone 4. You won’t notice any major changes in its design. It has the same size and weight. The display too remains the same i.e. a 3.5 inch 960×640 pixel retina display.
Powerful new camera:
Yes, the iPhone 4S does hype-up the camera features and believe me each and every minute detail is captured, so make sure you photoshop your pic if you have tiny pimples on your face. Seriously, iPhone 4S comes with an 8 megapixel camera with autofocus and flash and a CMOS sensor to brighten up your pics. The new sensor allows 73 percent more light and will certainly make your images more lively even in dark light conditions. Also the integration of a new Infra-red filter means your pictures will define more colour. You can now shoot videos in 1080p HD and the built-in image processor just makes face detection a lot more fun!
Fully boosted Processor:
iPhone 4S runs on Apple’s A5 dual-core 1GHz processor and has a dual-core graphics unit too. And the crunchy part is iPhone 4S comes with Apple’s latest OS i.e. the iOS 5. Many people are excited about iOS 5 and what its new features are and we will soon come up with an article to discuss about the same. By the way Apple says iPhone 4S operates twice as fast and offers graphics seven times faster than the iPhone 4. And you know what i say, i say “Try to beat that, rivals”.
Welcome to Siri (The new voice assistant)
Siri is a female voice assistant featured in Apple’s latest smartphone, the iPhone 4S. Consider this feature similar to the Google Voice Search, but a bit more Apple. Just press down your Home button on the iPhone 4S and command Siri to do anything by your voice. Such as you can add new reminders, search for a destination or book tickets anywhere around the world by just speaking to Siri. Isn’t it ubercool? I found this feature very innovative and it performs searches with so much efficiency.
Apple claims the phone can offer 8 hours of talktime over 3G, 6 hours of browsing on 3G, 10 hours of video playback and 40 hours of music playback. I think this much battery is more than enough if you are traveling countries (i.e. by plane of course, hehe).
Not a 4G, but definitely a HSDPA
Apple iPhone 4 already offered HSDPA connectivity but iPhone 4S is just twice the step ahead of it. iPhone 4S now fully supports HSDPA 14.4 which means you get download speeds upto a whopping 14.4Mbps and a 5.8Mbps upload speed. I mean what the hell, that’s brilliant.
Release Date and Price:
As of now, iPhone 4s is available to preorder. However, it is expected to be officially released on October 14 (in U.S. only). iPhone 4S is as usual available in colours of black and white. iPhone 4S 16GB model costs $199, 32GB model costs $299 and 64GB model costs $399.
Why should you buy it?
Personally i think iPhone 4S packs a lot more than what it looks like. The experience of Siri, an improvised camera, high internet speeds where battery backup has not been compromised at all and not to mention the debut of iOS 5, i mean that’s big! My personal opinion is it is a must buy for every Apple boy, not even is it faster than the iPhone 4 but there has been a lot features newly introduced in this smartphone.
So what do you think? Share your thoughts by dropping a comment. Do you think you will buy iPhone 4S or will wait for iPhone 5?
