"VERY PLEASED AND I'M COMING FROM AN IPHONE 4"4.0 starson by dondabomb
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.
