iMessenger = BBM
Notification Bar = Android
Voice Activation = Multiple
Internal Antenna = Everyone
iCloud = Windows Phone
8mp Camera = Everyone
Dual Core = Android

Please tell me ONE "new" feature that is actually NEW and not a direct RIP from other companies?

Sure the voice activation is cool...if you want to look like you have no friends and talk to yourself and your phone is your only friend. Besides voice dial, voice text/email...What do you REALLY need? The rest is just gimmicky.

I didnt expect Apple to drop the ball this bad...anyone that actually defends upgrading from a 4 to 4s is someone that is just a TERRIBLE consumer lol Drive the price up on feature lacking devices...

Its like Steve Jobs slapped all of the ifail fanboys in the face and kicked their dog at the same time. I love it. Buy a real phone like a Bionic.

Jobs didnt wanna disappoint so he stepped down and let cook get bashed; that's the only genius move I see here. Apple fans stand down, all your hopes have diminished, and you precious iPhone has been irrefutably bested for the last time. Android welcomes you with open arms, and high end mobile devices. May you never go back to your shepherd, Apple, and may this finally make you come out of your ignorant and brain-washed minds. I hope you will enjoy your new mobile experience, good day to you all. :-)

Windows 7.5 Mango and Windows 8 Devices are where it's at for the "ease-of-use" crowd, but still packs TONS AND TONS of extra features.

Android for full blown customization, free apps, and choices of hardware!

Apple should loose all of it's market share except for iSheep.

Will not buy one unless there is one model come with the transparent housing and could easily see the A5 chip inside, meanwhile, people can tell I got a new phone. TMO, the partial reason why people the buying white iPad 2 is it can easily tell they got a new iPad.

oh man...if i were an iFan i'd be pissed right now. this is pretty much like having a Droid X and waiting for a Droid Bionic for over a year and getting a Droid X2 in it's place only...that's it! it'll be a while before there's an upgrade over that unless Apple has another thing coming which is never the case, they toss their bone and expect you to be happy with it for the year it takes them to come up with another one. it looks like this day actually cements the gap between the iPhone and high-end Android devices.

This made me chuckle out loud. I think Apple is a bit too cocky for it's own good.

I for one can't wait to see taco's response to this.

Im gonna be very honest. I was an iphone user since the 1st generation of Iphone but it is really dissapointed see how the new 4s turn out to be. I wait for the 4s so long that I decide to try other phones in the meantime . Im currently using and SG2 and I believe me, I wouldnt change back to iphone unless I see something that really "WOW" me. and the Iphone 4s IT IS NOT "WOW: AT ALL.

This is really disappointing. Apple should have been smart enough to know that they had to make the next iPhone(iPhone 4S) a huge improvement to compensate for the delay, yet they make up the same old iPhone 4 with only a improved camera and processor. Now the fans have to wait for another year for the next iPhone when quad-core phones with more advanced Android is coming. Cmon Apple, the days when iPhone 3GS came out and make fans go crazy about it is over . Right now things are totally different. I wonder what fans are going to say when they queue for the iPhone 4S and the interviewer asks them why they are lining up for the phone. Ironically, Im typing this on my SGS2.

OK honestly I can understand if you're a android fan but it really gets on my nerves how you guys show up on every apple article bashing the iphone. By all means its OK to like android because its an awesome platform, but that doesn't mean you have to hate on the iphone and call all iphone fans isheep or ifanboys. Ps Im a apple fan :)
