Apple iPhone 4S Review

Overview

Best in its Segment

Apple is the world leader in smartphones. Apple phones really make their user feel very proud of owning them. This phone was launched in the year 2011 and quickly took the market by storm.

Apple iPhone 4S Design and Build Quality

Apple’s iPhone 4S is a very sleek phone which comes with various top-notch features that are very comfortable and easy to use. The phone is very stylishly built. It has a scratch resistant steel back which keeps the phone looking new forever. The ring/vibrator button is the new addition apart from the usual buttons. The build quality of the phone is above par and small fall are easily handled by the phone.

User Interface and Comfort to Use Apple iPhone 4S

With an excellent screen and paper like viewing angles on screen, give it a very pleasant user interface. The phone as a dual core A5 processor which is 7 times faster than its predecessor is. The phone is faster and graphics are simply amazing. With the iPhone 4S, Apple has put lot of settings in the user hands. Even the notifications can be modified easily. The phone comes in three versions 16GB, 32 GB, and 64GB. The iOS 5 along with the swappable and customizable screen makes it further easy to use. Camera can be accessed by double tapping the home screen. Even after prolonged use, we did not see any lag or heat in the phone.

Telephony and Phonebook

The phone comes with both 2G and 3G capacities. The noise cancellation mic and an excellent speaker make it very easy to use. The call quality is excellent and we have no complaints by the phone. The contacts option on the phone is a little out-dated but still very functional. Calling-up contacts using Siri also quite efficient. The phone comes with a new antenna system which ensures no call drops at any time.

Messaging and Emails

The iMessage and Facetime are two of most popular features of the phone. Apart from these SMS, MMS, Email and push email are the features available on the phone.

Gallery, Photo Viewer and Video Player

When we come to the point of multimedia capabilities of the phone, we cannot stop singing its praises. The photo viewer of the phone is excellent and smooth and goes by the name of camera roll. You can edit photos directly from the camera roll and even use the third party apps easily. The video player of the phone only supports the apple format videos. You can play full HD 1080p recording on the player easily.

Apple iPhone 4S Music Player and FM Radio

Music player on the iPhone is as good as the models before it, only now it is much faster and easier to browse. The phone does not have a FM radio but you will not miss the FM radio because of the vast selection of music you have in iTunes store.

Apple iPhone 4S Camera and Image Quality

Apple has improved the camera by introducing the 8MP camera with flash. The image quality is superb and we cannot find much fault in the quality of image even in dark lights.

Video Camera and Video Quality

The video camera comes with an image-stabilizing feature which gives the videos that extra sharp look that you always desired.

Apple iPhone 4S Connectivity Options

The phone has all the usual connectivity options plus and HDMI out for TV connections. The 3G and Wi-Fi speed on the device is super-fast and we did not lose the connection for even minutes during our review period.

Organiser and Other Utility Tools

The Apple iTunes store is a storehouse of many tools which you can download on the device for use. The preloaded tools include calendar, reminders, clock, music, and photo.

Web Browser and Applications

The default HTML browser on the phone is Safari. The browser is fast but the bookmarks are not so easy to save. But overall, it is very impressive.

Google Maps and GPS

GPS latching of the phone is quite awesome even when you are inside the building. The maps load up very quickly and are easy to use.

Distinctive Features of Apple iPhone 4S

The most distinctive feature of iPhone4s is voice integration software named Siri. Siri is still in the beta stage but its responses are quick and accurate for about 80% of the time. The voice dictation is smooth and without many errors.

Value for Money

The phone is priced between Rs.34000 and Rs.45000 (approx., may vary) in the Indian market. The price of the phone varies with the storage capacity.

Verdict

Apple iPhone 4S is a very smart phone and is quite suitable for all purposes. It fulfills the criterion of a smartphone and does much more. We would give the phone a full 5 out of 5 stars.
