Apple iPhone 4S Safari browser benchmarked, a photo gets taken with the new 8MP camera
Now someone with an early access to the iPhone 4S has posted BrowserMark results of 89567, which is almost double the achievements of Safari on the iPhone 4. So, yes, surfing the Internets will be much quicker on the new dual-core iPhone 4S than before. SunSpider, which measures Java performance, returned results that are 3x better than on the iPhone 4. Of course, these results might be due to optimizations in iOS 5, not only to the dual-core A5 system chip. Any desktop browser would laugh at such BrowserMark results, but they are pretty impressive for a mobile device.
the improved 8MP camera sensor, and it looks pretty sharp and with the amount of detail you would expect from this resolution. The guys recorded the soundless video below, detailing the benchmark process and testing the Siri voice-recognitioin platform. The Siri settings page, which we haven't seen before, shows that you can check to activate the assistant by lifting the phone up, and, of course, set the language of your choosing from the handful available.

Page loading time WITH FLASH CONTENT is all that matters.
Benchmarks are scores we are all familar with and have results to compare. No one tracks the "SunSpider" stats.
Your bias is amazing.

That camera on the iP4S is going to be badass! But Apple just screwed a lot of current Siri users by making it a feature on iPhone 4S only! Why take this app away from the app store and then from people's devices for no good reason? Is it because the "magic" well has run dry, and Siri was the only real differentiator Apple could think of for the iP4 and iP4S? Or was it just plain old greed (Trying to force people to upgrade)...?

Hoping Siri will be jailbroken. May be tougher since this app uses the cloud for its function. May need some kind of "disguise" in the app to make the cloud think it is an iPhone 4S.

I love Iphone because of the fact that they don't put higher software on phones that can't support it. I think the reason why they didn't put siri in the Iphone 4s was a market stradegy for one and the hardware might not support it on the iphone 4.

There is very good reason for preventing existing iPhone 4/3GS from getting this SIRI (silly??) app >> $$$$$$$$ from iSheep is always very sweet.
No sheep will bat an eye to upgrade just for the simplest of silly (ok.....SIRI) reason ^_^

who cares about the score when you have 4.65' 720p display on prime vs tiny 3.5'

Huh, my one year old Desire HD with 1GHz and Android 2.3.3 and Opera 11.5 scored 3040 on SunSpider. So, what?
