iPhone 4S

 

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...

Apple iPhone 4S review

 

No game-changer, but still one of the most talented smartphones on the planet

Clean, fast interface ; class-leading audio ; video looks great ; iTunes and App store

Screen is small ; colours lack punch ; closed garden of iTunes

It's getting on, but the iPhone 4S still delivers a complete package that's hard to beat

iPhone 4S

 

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

The iPhone 4S is every bit a smartphone, and an excellent one at that. The range of functionality that it delivers, along with the entire ecosystem that it inhabits, still make it one of the best phones on the market. Apple has done an excellent job...

Apple iPhone 4S review

 

Apple's latest iPhone doesn't have the expected bigger screen or redesigned body. But does it have enough?

Slick, superfast performance ; That new 8MP camera really shines ; Siri is destined to be your new best friend

Not a radical departure from iPhone 4 ; Easy to damage when dropped

It’s not an essential upgrade, but Apple’s iPhone 4S is noticeably fitter than the iPhone 4 – and Siri is a temptation too far

iPhone 4S review

 

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Costly ; No flash integration ; Outdated contacts menu

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

Apple iPhone 4S Review: In Depth

 

The iPhone 4S is finally here, it's not the iPhone 5 that many expected, instead it's an enhancement to the iPhone 4 - pretty much like the 3GS was to the 3G. But that still hasn't stopped Apple…

One of the best screens on a smartphone ; Fantastic build ; Thousands of apps ; Improved camera ; Faster processor ; iCloud

Screen feels a little small ; iMessage quirks ; Siri not fully featured ; Camera lacks features

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...

Apple iPhone 4S review

 

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
