Summary Why buy any other phone? This phone has the features you could possibly ask for and then some. The fluidity of how everything in the phone moves makes it very pleasing to the eye, not to mention built in Retina Display. I have been using this phone for nearly a year and I haven't found one serious flaw besides the fact that it needs a case. Which isn't a big deal! Customizing your own case adds personal style anyways.
Some say the screen is not big enough. I've held other phones with a bigger screen such as the Galaxy S II and even though the large screen is somewhat nicer, it's actually not. Why? Because the size of the iPhone ergonomically fits perfectly into your hand without having to stretch it all the way around. Besides this is a PHONE not a TABLET.
Another issue for people was battery life. This is at the fault of the own user. I've had this phone for a year and I've had no unreasonable problems with the battery. If you are having fast battery drainage problems you either: have your brightness all the way up, have all your apps open and need to close them frequently (by holding the home button and Xing out the apps) , or you are constantly on it. Of course if you are constantly on your phone, brightness all the way up, going app to app that your battery WILL drain. And by simply turning the brightness a little down, closing apps more oftentimes, and aren't constantly being on the phone, the battery should should last the whole day and then some perfectly fine!
This is definitely the king of smartphones of this generation.
Pros Speed, screen retina display, build quality is like it has been handmade by artisans.
Cons IMO this is the perfect smartphone. Has what it should and does it well, doesn't try to do things it can't. Would like to see a slightly bigger screen fit into the same chassis used currently.
Summary The best smartphone on the market hands down.
Pros -Specs (A5 processor, 8MP camera, World Phone, etc)
-IT JUST WORKS
-Does what you want it to do
-Love the looks
Cons -Battery life could have been a bit better
-Could have been nice to see a redesign
-A bit overpriced, but just like every other Apple product
-Pretty fragile which really sucks, and that's probably all the cons
Summary Had Samsung Nexus S before. Good phone and all but it had some flaws (especially no zoom camera and pretty bad wi-fi). Decided to get a iP4S. I think $660 CAD is a bit too much for a smart phone, but it's totally worth it. The phone looks REALLY nice (maybe just my opinion) but because it's pretty fragile, you basically need a case. Does perfectly all the things I need it to do. One of the biggest things I like about it is that it just works. The quality is VERY good too. You might call me biased but I must still say that is one of the best smart phones out there. Overpriced, but worth it.
Pros CAMERA, SPEAKER, SPEED (A5 CHIP) CALL QUALITY, FASTER INTERNET (5MB ON AVERAGE) AND OF COURSE SIRI
Cons BATTERY LIFE... NOT AS GOOD AS MY IPHONE 4 WHICH WAS ALSO USING IOS 5.0
Summary This review is based on those looking to upgrade from an iPhone 4 to an 4s.
I upgraded to an iPhone 4s from an iPhone 4 and found myself very happy with it. This phone is fast and apps loads as quickly as I move my fingers from from the screen. I play words with friends often and noticed lag on my iPhone 4.... Not with this one. Very quick and efficient. The camera is phenomenal and the best I have ever seen on a phone. It loads quickly even from the lock screen. Call quality is much better and it is noticeable. The internet is very quick compared to my 4. I noticed I was getting 3MB consistently a few weeks ago on it now with the 4s I'm consistently getting 5 MB down and 1MB upload no problem. Siri is cool but in all honestly it's a tad bit overrated. I haven't really used it much but it reminds me of Apple's previous generation voice command on steroids. It is very useful but you have to speak clearly. I'm sure I will utilize it more and more in the future. One thing I really like though is the speak to text which is embedded into your keyboard throughout the phone. You can speak your text across the platform. This makes it so much easier to send text, update Facebook status, browse the web etc.... This alone is the best feature for me. The speaker has been updated as well. Calls and text come through very loud and clear. Apple didn't mention this as an added or updated feature but they should have as it is worth mentioning. I work in a loud environment and this has been a pleasant surprise. I was on the fence about updating from my 4 but after having it since June 2010 I figured it was time and I'm glad I did. I got it from a local Radio Shack since Apple and AT&T stores were still sold out. I also traded in my 32GB iPhone 4 for $300 at Radio Shack which paid for my new one and then some. Also the fact you are eligible to upgrade to an iPhone every year as an AT&T customer helped make my decision easier as I will be getting an the 5 upon release. Battery life is subpar compared to my previous one but Apple is said to be working on a fix 5.0.2 that should finally take care of it. Once that is fixed I this will be a 5 star phone hands down. Hope this review helps.
