Apple iPhone 4S unboxing and hands-on

0. phoneArena 19 Oct 2011, 13:36 posted on

So with the iPhone 4…err we mean the iPhone 4S, it retains the same iconic looks as its predecessor, which isn’t a bad thing to tell you the truth, but some are naturally inclined to expect just some minor changes to differentiate itself...

Yup, do you? Where did they measure the razr? The same as the sg2? The iphone is thinner than the sg2 if u compare the thickest parts and that is how it is done

Oh, you're a clever one. You're right, the iPhone may be marginally thinner than 10% of the Razr.

...but still thicker than the remaining 90%.

Remind me again why we're comparing apples to pineapples?

And all you android fanboys (since you are reading an iphone story again) i hope next year the iphone has a paper thin flange. Then apple can claim a paper thin phone and using your method to measure a phone, it would be ok.

hawk, with your logic they cannot advertise cars with the MPG they do because at some points it's worse than that (ie acceleration).

The reality is that the majority (maybe 90% who knows) of the RAZR is about 2mm thinner than the iPhone, and when we're talking about 7mm vs 9mm that is around 20% thinner... which is substantial.

Why do you even post nonsense like that? You complain that "android fanboys" are reading the iPhone article again, yet you were the FIRST post and you immediately compared it to an Android phone...

And why bother comparing thickness of one already thin device to another even thinner one? What makes the Razr truly impressive isn't that it's thin, it's that it's that thin and still LTE.

Thank you. People don't seem to grasp that the GSII and 4s don't have the most current network technology (or CDMA) which in general leads to more bulk. Phones like the RAZR and Prime are coming in at what seems like half the thickness of the T-Bolt and Bionic.

I'm switching from Android to iOS because of the mass-market crap that Android phones have become. My DX2 would crash and reboot every day. Its "qHD" screen is so bad I can't read the calendar because of pixelation. The camera is so slow I wind up taking a picture of the ceiling more often than not.
.
Spec don't matter if the phones are crap.

You're a dumbass if you think the 4S has horrible battery life. Looks up the specs. They are better than any s**tty Android phone.

71. remixfa (Posts: 13902; Member since: 19 Dec 2008)


if you would take your own advice you would see the the i4s' battery life is less than the SGS2, Droid Razr and others.. that tired line of "iphone has better battery life" went out at the beginning of 2011.
There have also been many reports of huge battery drainage in iOS5 devices.

Soo... i wonder who the dumbass is... hmm.

Dual-Core. Global. One phone for all carriers. Better Antenna. 8mp camera. Bigger battery. Voice Assistant.

But you're right. Since it looks the same it's the same phone.

America loves fads, unfortunately this one has lasted much longer then it should had. Its a app launcher, other the simplicity for dull people I just don't see the appeal of browsing with no flash or trying to accomplish anything on a 3.5in screen. How does this phone work at all for guys with big fingers? I accidentally press buttons all the time on my 4.3in screen so 3.5 is just an insult. Its always seemed like apple is more concerned about its bottom line then trying to revolutionize anything these days.

Omg take your flash and delete it. It doesnt work have the time anyway. I have as many or more problems with loading web site on my sgt10.1 as my iph4. Flash is not that important.

Android has about 100 force closes to app's 1.

20. iamcc (Posts: 1319; Member since: 07 Oct 2011)


hawk, if your GT10.1 is force closing 100s of times you're doing something wrong, i've had the tablet since it was released and can count on one hand how many times an app has force closed.

The whole force closing argument was valid last year but realistically it's not really an issue with the newer Android phones.

That's BS. I had a DX, DX2, and have 2 DIncs in the family. To this day FCs are a problem. BUT - my iPad has program crashes all the time too. The difference is that some FCs crash Android - iOS is much more stable. I have been using Android for 2 years and iOS for 3 on multiple devices and there is no comparison in OS stabilty - iOS is stable, Android is NOT.

All of the phones you just mentioned are at least 6 months old if not a year old or more.

Re-read my post.

@c.hack. You must be joking right. I've owned most of the devices you just mentioned and a couple others and by far my wife DInc is the most stable phone I have ever seen in my life. I've had a total of 3 force closes on my DInc 2, all generated by one bad app. No restarts, no crashes, nothing! I'm not sure what you have on your device, but I would probably start by looking at what you have downloaded.

And don't think iOS means no forced closes my friend. As I've stated many times here before, my iPad force closes a lot more that any of my previous Android devices...well, maybe the OG Droid forced closed more, but hey that was 2.0. But yes, my ipad will send me to the homescreen in a heartbeat for no apparent reason, and the keyboard lags often as well. Not to say I don't like my iPad, but it's not perfect. It doesn't always "just work".

And you're a cock$ucker and you have admitted it before. No one likes you, that's why you can never say you have friends or family that did anything. I gave examples of phones in my own home on my account, so who cares what you think. Also, nobody's getting tough with you, you just like being the victim. Like I said, give me the proof and you get a FREE iPhone 4S. Prove to everyone that you are no liar...put up a link where I said I pirate apps and claim your prize. If you can do that, I will declare my undying allegiance to the iPhone, iOS, I'll declaim you the smartest person alive and close my PA account out of pure shame!
