(How we score)

Excellent hardware construction, easy interface, excellent camera, speed to spare
Smallish screen, no 4G, no user replaceable battery


It has been 15 months since Apple released the iPhone 4. This has left many iPhone, and would-be iPhone customers, anxious for what the company planned to bring next. The iPhone 4S is it. Same body, same screen, same construction, same look as the 15 month old iPhone 4. To say that some people were disappointed with the iPhone 4S would be an understatement.

However, despite the identical exterior to the outside of the phone, Apple was hard at work on the inside, as it packed an upgraded processor, a better antenna system, and an all-new camera into the iPhone 4S. The other big story with the iPhone 4S is its iOS 5 software, and its voice-controlled personal assistant called Siri. iOS 5 offers over 200 new features to Apple's smartphone platform.

With the rapid pace at which smartphones are developing these days, many have called the iterative improvements with the iPhone 4S a mistake, as it seems like every other minute a new Android device is out with better, bigger, faster everything. Despite that, the iPhone 4S gently improves on the immensely popular iPhone 4, and it betters what is already one of the best experiences available to a smartphone buyer. Read on to find out what the iPhone 4S is all about, and if it is a worthy upgrade to the vaunted iPhone 4.
