Wow, if anyone was doubting that the iPhone 4S could compete with the latest and greatest crop of smartphones, would you like your crow served scrambled, or over easy?

The specs are ridiculous, and the “S” wholeheartedly lives up to its name by bringing significantly more speed, to the already capable iPhone 4.

On top of the obvious A5 processing speed increase, the 4S actually rivals 4G speeds when it comes to downloads. Not only that, but it features CDMA and GSM capabilities for true world phone functionality…

The Stats:

Processor: A5 Dual Core Processor, up to 2x faster cpu, dual core graphics resulting in up to 7x faster graphics.

Battery Life: Improved battery life, 8 hours of talk time, 9 hours of Wi-Fi browsing, 6 hours of 3G browsing.

Faster Downloads: It’s technically still 3G, but it’s capable of speeds that rival 4G phones in real world comparisons, thanks to the improved antenna. 14.4Mbps downloads, and 5.8Mbps uploads. These are the same maximum data speeds for 4G phones like the HTC Inspire 4G and the Motorola Atrix.

World Phone: CDMA and GSM built into the same device, for true global roaming.

Improved Camera: 8MP Sensor capable of macro shots, and 3264 x 2428 resolution photos. New hybrid IR filer, face detection, improved white balance, and faster photo time. In fact it heavily bests Android’s flagship Droid Bionic in this area. Just 1.1 seconds to the first photo, and half a second to the next.

Video: 1080p video recording, noise reduction, and image stabilization.

Basically, this looks like a killer device, and one that I’m happy to replace my iPhone 4 with. It looks and sounds absolutely killer. Dare I say “iPhone 5, what?”

And that’s just the hardware end of the spectrum, coming up, we’ll have details on the new Assistant integration stemming from Apple’s purchase of Siri.

What do you think of the specs? I’m quite satisfied!

    @marcandsebe: Exactly, they are the best you may say at what they do you may say( im talking because of the value of the company). That means they are the best in technology, so im guessing thy know a little bit about it….

  • marcandsebe

    @Nico I don’t understand your English. i can’t make sense of what you are trying to convey.

  • Nico

    @marcandsebe. excuse me, what i was trying to say was that as you said Apple is one of the most valuable companies and that’s because they are very good at what they do, actually the best(if you look at the stocks you can see that). And what they do? They offer technology (PC, tablet, mp3 player and software), so if you combine those stuff(sell technology and being the best at what they do) you can be sure they know what they are doing. And if you take a look at Siri, there you have the greatest advantage of all (if it works as it seems). This is mostly for charly who said “us who understand technology”

    • marcandsebe

      @Nico That’s much clearer. It looks like you are in favour of Apple then? Siri looks very interesting to me. If it works as well as it did, that could really change the game. The voice activation software on the iPhone 4 is not reliable enough,
      I like Apple products, but if something came along much better, I would buy it. I just don’t thing Android is superior to iOS. I don’t like animated or moving backgrounds, so that’s wasting valuable software space and is just a gimmick. I only use plain backgrounds on my iPhone 4. Google for me are best at search engines, streetview etc.

  • Passe

    This is obviously an apple fanboy site..

    The processor isn’t really that great.. a 1 ghz dual core? WOW.. S2 has a 1.2 GHZ and the upcoming Sensation XE got a 1.5!!! It got the smallest little screen ever.. 3.5? still? oh apple..

    And that i can compete with 4G? Oh come on that is a fuckin joke… WOW OMFG 14 MBPS!!!!!! OMG AMAZING! Really? No.. The Samsung Galaxy S2 got 21 MBPS so beat you there too apple!

    And still even the shitty (wasn’t shitty when it came out) iPhone 4 costs more than the S2… oh apple..

    I actually thought that apple would come up with something nice like a bigger screen, a better processor… The only thing that’s actually really new and cool is Siri or whatever it’s called and that’s not really something you’d use in public..

    The downfall of apple begins..

    • Frank

      I thought it said dual, as in 2 x1ghz processor

    • marcandsebe

      @Passe If it’s an Apple Fan Boy Club and you’re not one of us. F Off

      • oh shut up

        Oh shut up, you and your fucking bull shut club, you are all alone in this buddy

  • Passe

    Oh and i probably should have replied to “Nico”.. “Nico” are you fucking kidding me? “the best at what they do” are you seriously saying that? They can’t compete with the other phones…

    And Siri yeah its cool but Apple didn’t make it and it won’t really be used outside your home..

  • KH

    I seriously wish these numbers folks would shut up. I mean they hate a computer company. For what reason only a loser knows. Shut the fuck up you worthless biotches, go find a woman and stop carrying on this whiney conversation about larger screen and ghtz like littler nerds!

  • passe

    KH you are a perfect example of an apple fanboy! Someone who doesn’t know shit about the phone and only cares about it being Apple.

    i don’t hate apple, sure their products are over priced but some of their products are good, i loved my iPod. and when iPhone actually was the best (Like 3 years ago) i wanted one, just for the reason that it was better. Now iPhone isn’t and all the fanboys tell themselfs that the Iphone still owns every other phone.

    but it doesn’t and when i say it’s a piece of shit phone im a nerd? Seriously how old are you? Grow the fuck up,

    And go find a woman? WTF does that have to do with this?

    • marcandsebe

      Let’s remember Steve Jobs who died today. Give it a rest all your anger at the iPhone and Apple.

  • KH

    It means exactly what I said… Instead of talking about this for hours go get some. Seems like Driods and what ever else gives you such a hard on. Fanboy, what ever that means… Next I’ll be what you call a “Noob”. I still stand by what I said get a life and stop hating on a damn phone. Get a life people… It’s just a phone and next year we will be right back here all over again. Complaining about a damn screen.

  • KH

    Well doesn’t matter now Steve is really gone. RIP Steve Jobs!!!! An innovator has left this world.

  • afra

    just like metallica … when cliff burton left the metallica and then jasson, we can see the great metallica how fell down with ugly panty monkey named robert !

    its is sad that a great innovator left the world .im talking about creating ipad & first iphones) but then ppl didnt realize that iphone was using a repetitive technology when they give fans 3gs after 3g . and 4g after . compare the hardware of these phone will prove to anyone , what i said .

    and apple just forget about that lot of customers of new phone are the ppl who already own the previous iphone . and with this redicules at&m 200$ policy that i can even name it policy , wanna sell more than before !

    we all know that store is great yeah , but what at price ? buying a approximately same phone everytime ! this is making a baby fool with alter candy instead of cahnging the store !

  • KH

    Does anyone write using grammar here? You people sure are smart and very illiterate. Either way just don’t buy the phone if you hate it so much.

  • Stacey

    The iPhone 4gs rules faster.. 8mp camera longer battery Siri so we can use it in the streets and people look at us like idiots y are for buying this new iPhone 4gs cause it make the iPhone 4 look useless ok sorry being brainwashed again by an evil organization give you a hint iPad 2 It has a camera that is shit.. y did’t the put the iPhone 4 camera in it?? Wait I know so they iPad 3 can come with guess what a new camera yay!! Give me a break open you eyes guys I have apple products but after reading all this things apple is doing I’m moving and so will many apple is finish’t in 5 years maybe sooner now steve is gone her was a good thinking man who ideas made apple what it is today but apple wont be the same with out him look at the history of apple and will see…

    R.I.P steve

    And seriously?!?!? I told you I DON’T HATE APPLE! I am talking about the fucking phone? Get it THE PHONE..! NOT APPLE..

    And us android users are dumb fucks? Well if you didn’t know Android is for the people who wants a little more “complicated” phone, who want to maybe overclock etc etc their phone.

    And seriously im not against Apple or iPhone, just this one. The last iPhone was good it was.. For like 3 months..

    And honestly If we’d put android’s best phone against the new iPhone, android would win any time..
    And as i was saying.. I don’t just like it because of the small screen but clearly you can’t read for shit.

    • TennisPro

      I don’t want the phone to be more complicated. I don’t want to overclock it. I just want a reliable reliable phone. That’s what the iPhone gives me.

  • afra

    yeah instead of answering question ! bringing a resonable answer u keep saying using grammer or your english is horrible ..

    english is my third language and im happy to speak with three live language .

    main point is about the phone not my english 😀 … mr called me dumb . if u have something to say about 4s then write a comment . u can see all these ppl who own iphone are complaining not just andorid dump !!!! :d

  • R

    Think of the iPhone as a German luxury car brand, let’s say BMW (I can’t say American for obvious reasons), and the Galaxy S II as a Japanese luxury car brand, Lexus. The reality is the BMW sets the benchmark with a car that has plenty of power, handles exceptionally well, and has all the interior appointments you’d expect and then some.

    Lexus knows that to be more attractive to buyers, it should have more power, handle better, and have more amenities all at a competitive price. The problem is by adding more power, the engine might vibrate more or take more revs to make the power; by making it handle better, the suspension becomes too stiff and uncomfortable; by adding more tech or features, the quality of said tech and ease of use is not up to par.

    What makes the BMW so good is the entire package works well and in harmony, striking a balance between everything. Lexus makes key areas surpass the BMW, but that throws off the balance and makes it only second best. It’s not just about power, handling, and luxury. You need to factor the spaces in between.

    And that’s where the iPhone trumps everything else. The entire package is so cohesive. Apple makes everything run so smoothly that processor clocks, pixel counts, and screen size become moot.

    And for people who still think bigger numbers mean better performance, please read:
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Megahertz_myth

    I’ll be pre-ordering my 64GB iPhone 4S tomorrow. And when I get it, I’ll be doing everything you Android people can do. Except I’ll be storing more media. And taking better photos. And PLAYING MORE GAMES 🙂

    I hope I have the longest comment on iDB ever.

    • Android over Apple

      I have a galaxy s2, which has the same quality camera with a BETTER screen resolution. I’ll be playing the same games you are, only they’re free. And as for media, whats the point of filling 64gb on a phone? are you really that lame…oh and btw paying you’re paying 400 for an inferior device that cant even run on a 4g network. the 16gb is 200 and the 64 is 400. You are paying $200 for 48gb of memory? Are you brainwashed by apple or handicapped?

      • R

        I’m going to take your points one by one.

        “same quality camera”
        If you mean same number of megapixels, then yes you’d be right. What you fail to understand is pixel count does not mean quality. The megapixels don’t make the camera. First and foremost, it’s the lens. Second is the sensor. In just a weeks time, you’ll be seeing comparisons between the S2 and 4S, and because the iPhone has a quality sensor and a lens system, it’s gonna make the S2’s camera look like a toy.

        “BETTER screen resolution”
        Wrong here too. According to this (http://www.phonearena.com/phones/Samsung-Galaxy-S-II_id5106) the S2 has a resolution of 480×800, much less than the iPhone’s 640×960. But I’m sure you meant screen size.

        “playing the same games”
        No you won’t. I have Zombie Gunship. Do you? I have Jetpack Joyride. Do you? I have Inifinity Blade. Do you? Take a look at this graph: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Global_Mobile_Applications_Store_Revenue.svg . If I was a developer making an app or a game, why would I want to make it for the Android Market while everyone is making boatloads of money in the App Store. Android gets the knockoffs or gets the apps much later ala Angry Birds. And getting games free is a discussion to be had off the interwebs.

        “whats the point of filling 64gb on a phone?”
        Because I can. Plain and simple. What’s the point of buying a Ferrari? It’s stupidly expensive, you’ll never go 200 miles per hour, and you’ll sure as hell get a ticket or crash if you try. So why get one? Oh and the S2 is only upgradable to 48GB.

        “cant even run on a 4g network”
        Incorrect. It will run on AT&T’s 4G HSPA+ network. I know by your comment that I have a lot more knowledge on the subject, so pay attention you might learn something. What cell phone companies are calling “4G” is not really 4G. 4G is a standard set by some organization, just like 2G and 3G. 4G is still in its infancy, sparsely available, and is nowhere near the expected throughput. Someone in marketing thought, “hey, let’s call our improved 3G network 4G to bring more customers!” Then all the other companies followed suit and now everyone has “4G.” Apple knows this and smartly compared their new antenna system to “what our competitors call ‘4G.'” http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/4G

        “You are paying $200 for 48gb of memory?”
        Well when you put it that way… yes, I am, without remorse, regret, or a dent in my bank account. I can’t have that extra space any other way, so I will gladly drop $400 for the best damn mobile computing device on the market.

      @R brilliantly description of why Apple has the X Factor.

  • MissTechInfoSeeker

    I came to this site to find information from iPhone users who anticipate this new phone, as I get ready to upgrade to a new phone.

    I can’t believe how quickly you turn to verbal aggression and lies. Obviously there’s no one here to kick you off or edit your swears, except to a) not come here and b) not join your community of bloggers who wish to discuss technical advantages and disadvantages of the iPhone.

    Shame on you.

    • jules Verne

      @MissTechinfoSeeker I think if you have the 3G or 3GS, the iPhone 4S is a good upgrade. If you have the iPhone 4 then wait for the iPhone 5. My wife has my old 3GS and the speed and retina display are far superior on my iPhone 4. I’m sure the 4S will be better than this phone, but not enough to splash out the cash. As for the Galaxy S2.. Yes the screen is bigger, but although I would like a bigger screen, I don’t want the phone to larger. So if Apple can make it slightly larger in the iPhone 5, without changing the form factor too much, that will be great.

      • MissTechInfoSeeker

        I am concerned with how large the phone is going to be. I don’t want a huge droid like the photon or the bionic, depending on your service. I also am “on the phone” using data, text, or camera, all day, and don’t want bad signals, slow internet, etc. I do want to be able to read the screen without getting a tablet. I wouldn’t mind ditching my iPod, either! I supposed I’d get the 32 gig, if planning to store music. What about my Mp3 collection though? I’m coming from blackberry which plays both. I have the double display 9760.

      • jules Verne

        @MissTechinfoSeeker. The retina display on my iPhone 4 is brilliant, it takes good pictures, the 720p video is good enough too. It does everything I need it to do from Tom Tom Navigation, Facebook, Documents to Go etc etc. The best thing is it’s simple to use, but powerful enough if you want more from it. The iphone 4S will have all this in more abundance, plus a few extras. I have played around with quite a few Android phones, but none of these Android users with all their slagging off and telling me how great they are, will ever convince me to buy one. I also have the iPad 2 and iPod Nano 6G (As a watch) and they are fantastic too. The great thing about this debate, is it’s your choice. Go and look at the new iPhone 4S when it comes out on the 12th October and have a look at some Android phones. You can then make your own mind up. Good luck in your quest 

  • Devon

    I’m upgrading to the new white iPhone 4S 16 GB from my current iPhone 3GS 8 GB. The Android users here who are commenting on how much better the Android is than the iPhone and how much the iPhone sucks, and then calling US the fanboys… doesn’t make too much sense. I don’t go onto Android blogs and say “Hey f**kers! iPhone kix ur a$$!” because personally, it’s more about the OS than anything. Sure a bigger screen would be nicer, but I like the iPhone’s size as it it. My brother has an HTC something… I can’t remember, but the phone is just so big. It barely fits into a pocket because of the size, whereas my phone and new phone-to-be glides into my pocket with ease. I love Apple and all of its products because I prefer the iOS to the other OS’s out there.

    • MissTechInfoSeeker

      You’re so funny, it’s true. That was my complaint. Who are these people stomping on iPhones on their blog? Pulling it altogether, it’s true that pixels/resolution and display characteristics are independent factors. The device is only as good as it’s compatible components. I particularly like this part of what you said: “I don’t go onto Android blogs and say “Hey f**kers! iPhone kix ur a$$!” I sure hope not.

      I wasn’t expected to be attacked by Androids here! I want the new iPhone, and I don’t want to be sitting here with it, saying, what’s the matter with this thing. Oops, I forgot something that turns out to be a false assumption or limitation.

      You’ve been all helpful enough for me to head to the south part of town and See the iPhone up close.

  • Android over Apple

    Apple is GARBAGE. Drink more koolaid please!
    Android holds 44% of the market share right now! DUH! You mindless fools.

    • Devon

      You must be pretty bored… Why do Android users come to an iPhone blog to criticize it and it’s users? You’re just making yourself look bad. I love Apple and the OS is better imo. It’s all preference. Go on and use your fat phone and use your free apps with that OS, and I’ll use my preferable (imo) OS and it’s free apps when jailbroken. There’s no point in saying ‘Apple sux! Android fanboy to the rescue!’ you’re not changing anyones mind. You stick to your OS and we iPhone users will stick to ours. Kay?

      • marcandsebe

        @Devon I must agree. Android users keep trying to convince themselves. I don’t mind paying for apps. It’s the developers business. If I were a developer, I know what OS and company I would be working on. APPLE

  • KH

    Now that someone mentioned it I agree why are the Droid users here? I just don’t get it. Why do you hate so much on something you rather not have? If you don’t like iPhones don’t by them. It’s like they seek these types of blogs just to come around and tout numbers and size. STFU!!!! Droid users are the same folks who use Windows to do important work and complain when it Fs you over. Just do and use what you like. Bounce snitches!!!

  • KH

    I agree why do they come to these sites if they hate Apple so much. They have to tell the world about it. Silly mofos!

  • Jules Verne

    @afra You cannot even write proper English my Android Fanboy. Is this what happens when you move over to a Droid?
    No informing us iPhone users how good your phone is, will ever change our minds. Its about the eco system as well. With all the different size screens on Android, it makes it much harder for the developers to write just one good program. We may have a 3.5 inch screen, but the standard size is why we have far better apps. Why don’t you go on your Android only sites and tell them how good it is. We don’t require this information.

  • Some people say that it’s not an iPhone or Apple made because it is running with 512MB Ram, is that all true? Many will satisfied with this kind of phone but too many are disappointed about is screen display too.

  • KH

    Dang y’all are a bunch of illiterate people! Look what Rodney just wrote. Go back school dude!

  • Jules Verne

    @KH I couldn’t agree more. Many of the Android users don’t seem to have a brain. Over 1000,000 pre orders last Friday and they still run the iPhone down.

    • MissTechInfoSeeker

      For those who don’t understand how I got here, it was through a link about comparing the Androids to the iPhones. There was some controversy over Apple and AT&T making claims that they were preparing the iPhone to show a 4g icon, total BS. I don’t misbehave or post while drunk. I think my English is above average. BTW, “Fanboy” is a real word. I looked it up @ m-w.com !

      I’m shackled to Sprint, too, but I like the unlimited speed.

      Regardless, it is time for a new phone, and I want the most user friendly experience I can find. I had a good time playing with the 4S at Best Buy. They did not have a Samsung Galaxy S2 to play with there. I want to know if the screen is big enough to read news feed but the phone is small enough to fit in my pocket. I don’t want a huge phone. I also don’t want to grab an iPhone just because I now can w/o going to AT&T.

      My ex-husband is a programmer, has had four droids in four years. He sold them to get faster processing and more advanced GPS, Etc. His 3rd was the EVO. He said they all drain on battery, but you can get a spare. Also, you can learn which apps eat juice. He has the Motorola now, and it’s a brick! When I said “iPhone”, he said “those are cool!!”

      The iPhone has internal battery. You can buy an additional battery that is in a protector case that adds to the battery life and protects the iPhone from scratches at the same time. I don’t hear a lot of complaints about battery.

      Signal strength is improved in the 4S as a receiver, but who knows how it’s going to run on Sprint?
      (that’s my concern – it’s gsm – not evdo – etc.) I heard many complaints about signal with AT&T from people without the iPhone.
      The iPhone is highly durable. But you should buy a case. It’s slick – slippery.

      Moving to the iPhone is a big deal to me. I want the Siri software ;-). That’s ruling my decision over all else. I’m willing to sacrifice the screen space.

      The audio will be at least as good as your iPod.

      You always have 30 days to bail, as well.

  • afra

    :)) …. yeah .. it not about my english all english ppl get my meanings … it because english is my third language ..

    instead of bring the reason .. u are talking about my english !? that funny .

    i just give link to ppl who claims that iphone has better screen can see it not true technically . i am talking with reason and u are talking emotionally .. Jules Verne . 3.5 inch for better view of application !!!! its not reasonably true but emotionally maybe .

    ps
    just read all first comment here iphone users cmplain and gsm , facebook and …

    when one thing blow your mind u cant see the mistakes and where its wrong like antenna in iphone 4 . this is blind love ,, not smart

    but android user can see the mistakes and choose best phone , cuz there is ocean of android phone
    apple should stay , without apple android lose its competitor .

      @afra We still have not much clue about what you are on about. Best to go on your first language forums.

      I have had no issues with the so called death grip or reception. You just don’t get it, 1000,000 pre orders on the first day. If the iPhone is so bad, how and why did they get so many orders? They can’t all be fanboys.

      @afra My friend had a few Android phones, the last one being a Galaxy S2. He said they have a tendency to crash a lot. He liked my iPhone 4 which is very stable and never crashes. He is now one of the million who ordered the iPhone 4S. I envy him 

    I’ve just used simple phones in the past…current one is a Rumor Touch which has served is purpose as a *Phone* with some sorta nifty mp3 capability…that’s about it. By no means has it been a great phone.

    So this leaves me searching threads much like this one, absorbing reviews on the various smartphones out there since I clearly could use some of the features they provide.

    I’ve sorta narrowed down my search to 3 Phones. The Iphone4s 16gb – The S2 Galaxy – And the HTC EVO 3D/4G

    My questions are this:

    How does the new IPhone compare to the other phones listed above in terms of:
    Battery Life
    Performance (Access Memory, Processor Speed, Operating System)
    Ease of use (Learning curve to navigate/operate)
    Voice activation/recognition
    Durability
    Signal Strength
    Audio Clarity ( Both on phone use and music playback)

    I’m limited to the phones mentioned above being bound to Sprint…

    I’m aware this is a IPhone Blog, but I’m hoping to get some feedback from current users of the Iphone4 that perhaps have used the other phones in my list to share some insight.

    Any comments much appreciated.

    thanks!

      @afra Don’t really care. I now have iOS 5 on my iPhone 4 & iPad 2, plus converted mobileme to iCloud. And I will tell you something for free. It’s brilliant.

  • afra

    where it mentioned that 1000,000 ppl pre order it !!! talk with source man .

    not just a news .

    and even if its true 1000,000 is so much in whole world !?
    for this phone that u claim is the must popular phone ?
    galaxy s II sold 5,000,000 in just 5 day :d .

    and Jules Verne u may dont need an information i just gave with reason like screen compare to gaalxy s II but so many ppl will be interested 😉 .. if u dont want to read dont read it okay .

    • Jules Verne

      @afra As long as you have convinced yourself the S11 is a good phone, that’s fine. It still won’t make me buy one. It’s too big to go in my pocket and I don’t like the Android OS. Just my view, buy my view all the same.

      • afra

        okay … if its just your view …

        firstig fist u didnt fave me the reliable source of what u said aout 100…. pre order .

        and about convinced my self with phone ? u just read my previous post .( how malii 400 “chipset of galaxy s II has slower fsp in game compare to tegra 2 that lg optimus 2x equipped with ) it proves that im not conviced myself blindly .

        im always talk with reviews spread all over net .

      • afra

    hi marcandsebe . thanks for considering my comment .

    and about crash” marcandsebe,,,” yeah I see crashes but , andorid is not something that u called it crash .. its applications .
    app that users (ordinary I mean ) have wrotten for it .. on costum rom u can see more alot ..but in official , just few , it not about andorid kernel .

    take android phone , use it perfessionally and u will see what i am trying to say . i am a perfessional andorid user and im telling u with experiences .. IOS hasn’t any crashes ? just because it nothing to do with any thing in lower layers of OS’s kernel , am I worng ? . user just work with surface layer .. but in android u always work with deepest layer , and when u make false change in thise layer sureit will be crash .
    like titanium back up , market anabler that fake your provider ..iread it before that apple expressed itself that we don’t want user to being worried about RAM memory and …
    ps costum rom is most of crashed reason .. if u just compare technically u can see how powerfull andorid is .
    and crashes is noth something that make your phone freez ! it just force close of masfunctioning of running apps , and when u choose “ok/close” it will close it , in blink of eyes .
    feature like : task manager , memory manager , real MULTI TASKing , opensource kernel allow u changing every single thing in android OS is not something that u can easily get away from .. u dont have any kind of multi item notification bar in IOS . but in some matters IOS movng forward . most of

      IOS is simple for all ordinary user .. andorid can be simple and can be real professional for expert ppl .

      Ps : i agree that apple’s store is more powerful than andoroid for now .

      • marcandsebe

        @afra I’m sorry but you won’t get me to like Android phones. I just do lot like the operating system. I have played around with quite a few. I personally don’t like phones that you can go into deeply. You just mess things up. I had the old Windows mobile years back and they were easy to mess up. For me, the simple and more stabl, the better. And that’s what the Apple iPhone 4 does for me. Plus they are very well made

      • afra

        yeah like i said and u said … they made easily for easy use , not professional .

        IOS is ordinary OS and sure u will love IOS .. plz dont involve wondows phone that even hasnt proper basic “copy past” and elementary multi task that that old-class symbian had built in . windows phone looks like theme more than OS .

        that is good 4 u 🙂 … and im not gonna mess u up 😉 i just clear that how superficial or deep mentioned OS are .

      • afra

        & ps

        technically i agree application have wrotten for IOS is not that beautiful ppl imagine
        . but IOS it self hasnt any beautiful thing itslef now.. every single thing u enjoy in iphone is one little application have wrotten .

        if ios has any amazing thing itself (not application) plz let me now .. i will be appreciate to expand my info

      • afra

        sryy … mis typing again in my comment …

        I EDITED IT HERE .

        & ps

        technically i agree applications have wrotten for IOS is beautiful ( like hand heater(really amazed me ) , xray camera and ….
        but IOS it self isnt that much beautiful ppl imagine .. every single thing u enjoy in iphone is one little application have wrotten .

        if ios has any amazing thing itself (not application) plz let me now .. i will be appreciate to expand my info

      • Jules Verne

        @afra What are you on about. With all the apps in the app store, the iPhone is professional as you want it to be.

      • afra

        professional with what ?

        what is the “professional use” in your dictionary ? app are amazing , okay.. im not talking about that .

        I AM talking about how one OS can work professionally . u just talking . not an expert talk . if it is professional bring me an example like i brought about management above .

        when we are talking about expert use , we are talking about how much power u do have to manage kernel of OS , manage memory of your phone with OS .. not million and even billion of apps .

      • marcandsebe

        @afra Yes you do talk a load of rubbish. The iPhone is professional as any other phone on the market

      • marcandsebe

        Why do I want to mess around with the kernel? I just want the phone to work and that’s exactly what the iPhone does. Like I said, you won’t change my mind. I just do not like the Android OS. It’s my choice and that’s it.

      • afra

        :))))))) i am talking wih example link and u just talking with mouth and i am full of rabbish :)) , thank 4 making me laugh .

        like i said before . bring me example … U ARE ORDINARY USER marcandsebe your words make it clear : “I just want the phone to work and that’s exactly what the iPhone does.”

        congratulation about your choice . if u have technicall idea about IOS you are welcome , and i will buy it otherwise i dont have word wih you about a question i asked above ( IOS utself doesnt have aby professional things )

      • afra

        Why do I want to mess around with the kernel?

        anwer is what i said above : ” u are not creator of apps ,expert user . u just use the apps , then u are ordinary user . ps its not insult or something like that by ” ordinary” , just description of how u use your phone OS .

  • Apple, been sneaking up on us for years, but we were all too hung up on Windows the single dullest operation system ever. It’s not for nothing that Windows attempted to copy Apple with Vista. What a pile of sh** that was. PC’s, dull, cheap, uninspiring, plasticky, and worth half what you paid for them as soon as you walk out of the dealers showroom. I have a 5 year old Powerbook which I’ve just sold for half of what I paid for it. Why, because it’s quality! The world is full of plastic rubbish and PCs epitomise this. Bought a HTC for my son. Battery life after 2 months, RUBBISH! He now uses my 4 year old iphone which still holds an amazing charge. The world needs to stop producing cheap plasticky rubbish. If you cant afford an Apple, id like to bet you also cant afford to end up with a worthless PC after 1 year. Think about it. Steve Jobs always stood for quality, design, inspiration, attributes the world so desperately needs to end this throw away culture. I bet nobody has ever thrown away a Mac!

  • 3GTexas

    I have a 3GS and really need to upgrade. I am worried about the 4’s antenna. Also, is the 4’s speed satisfactory for the new update with ICloud? I am trying to save the extra $100 the 4S would cost. I don’t video much and could live w/o suri. Thanks

    • marcandsebe

      @3GTexas I have the iPhone 4 and upgraded the software to iOS 5. I have never had a problem with the antenna, but prefer to keep the buffer case on it anyway for protection. I have not noticed any speed differences either. My wife upgraded her 3GS as well and all is ok with that on operating speed too.

  • KH

    Ok I’m really starting to enjoy the added features. I’m happy I have this phone once again. Sorry Droid peeps… Don’t know what yur missing.

  • I almost gave a hat tip to apple for actually coming forward with something that truly IS innovative. But no, the same old self praise bsspin. I am talking about the 4S that is supposed to be a dual format CDMA / GSM cell phone.
    Claiming to be a first world phone is not true. Verizon has had many dual format phones before. Claiming to be the first true world phone because it carries all the world frequencies is a lie.
    Where is the T-Mobile 1700 band?
    Nokia ( the company who apple loves to steal so many ideas from ) European phones carry the T-Mobile 1700 band.
    What’s the matter doesn’t all USA bands count as part of the world? Or are you compensated to keep that frequency off your i pay phone?
    S stands for speed? If T-Mobile’s 1700 HSPA+ was included, then the icrap could see downloads faster than Verizon’s LTE and covering more markets than Verizon.
    I get so sick of the spin and the lemmings that line up to buy them. They can recite the spin verbatim, but never research anything further than a TV commercial?
    Do your self a favor and actually go look a Galaxy SII before wasting money on another icrap or at least compare the specs. The S DOES stand for speed.

    i can’t wait to get my new simcard for my new 4S. i thought i’d never say this, but hurry up long weekend!
