Our Apple iPhone 4S coverage. In one place.

Our Apple iPhone 4S coverage. In one place.
Now that Apple announced the iPhone 4S and the dust has settled, we managed to out quite a bit of coverage around the new Apple pride and joy. But with so much posts and articles, one can easily lose track of everything. That's why we decided to have this post - giving you easy access to all of our iPhone 4S coverage from a single place.

First of all, however, we'd like to quickly recap all the important information about the new iPhone 4S here. So, for those who missed the news, the iPhone 4S will keep the same exact appearance of the iPhone 4, but will feature a number of improvements on the inside. For starters, it will have the dual-core A5 chip, present in the iPad 2. Then, there's the upgraded radio, which will now allow downlink speeds of 14.4 Mbit/s, and uplink speeds of 5.76 Mbit/s. The camera will also get a nice facelift, arriving at the 8MP mark, along with faster performance and a 1080p video recording. The most impressive new feature however seems to be Siri - a deep system-wide integration of voice commands that will act as your digital assistant.

The Apple iPhone 4S release date in the states is October 14, with pre-orders starting October 7. The price, as usual, will be $199 for the 16GB model, and $299 for the 32GB model. However, this year will see a new, 64GB option, for $399. One more thing... starting with the iPhone 4S, Sprint will also be among the blessed carriers, along with AT&T and Verizon. So, there you have it - a new iPhone 4S, available in just a few days. For the full details, however, check our articles, listed below:

There's much in samsung galaxy s II that's not in iphone 4s. for one thing, samsung gs2 provides for change of battery anytime so that when you're camping out there in the wilderness, you dont have to worry about draining battery. just carry another loaded one or even two. second, the screen of samsung gs2 is bigger so your eyes dont get strained. third, havent you heard about that drop test done on the two phones? samsung gs2 survived, iphone 4s just cracked up. plus, android apps are simply too wonderful to ignore.

I've heard that Apple is introducing a revolutionary feature in iPhone 4S, where all your messages and news are gathered and you can access it by pulling down your finger from top of the screen. Another never seen before feature is that you can actually use the phone directly out of the box. WOW!!! As if this wasn't enough, it has an 8MP camera and video recording in full-HD. The screen is supposedly in a class of its own with the whopping size of 3,5 inches diagonally. Truly Apple innovation at its best. Thank you Apple for making our lives easier...

I absolutely love watching comment sections to see all the little children fanboys either hating on Apple, and the ones thinking Apple are Gods. Every single one of you that put that horrible bias in your posts just need to stop posting until you can use an actual logical argument without being a complete child about it. So many people complaining about Apple's choice of designation for its phone... OMG NOT A 5! WTF! If they called it an iPhone 5 would you shut up about it? Who cares what it's called, it's just another phone. They could have called it the iPhone 734-8n if they wanted. I understand most disappointment lies in Apple's choice to do little to upgrade their last phone with the exception of basically just a new processor and iOS. Oh and a new voice interaction program. Next, the Apple haters seem to forget the real facts here. Without Apple's smartphone innovation (we're talking the iPhone in general not new ones, don't think to far into this) there might not even be an Android OS. Every single smartphone manufacturer has based practically everything they evolved their phones off of Apple's product, so don't forget where all the new technology and interfaces came from. Yes, I understand Apple is typically behind the curve of late when it comes to technology. All I'm saying is Apple completely sparked the entire smartphone market when it first came out. Being a user of both Android and iOS, I can compare them side by side, and to be honest, there just isn't that vast of a difference. Yep Apple has 100,000+ apps and Android is still growing their market, but honestly probably a good 80% of all apps are relatively useless. Hardly any cell phone user is a technical expert and wouldn't be able to tell you if their phone switched from Android to iOS overnight. You can nitpick a lot of things, but the difference just isn't that much to talk about. Your typical cell phone user is looking for a phone you can make phone calls, text, browse the internet, and take pictures/make videos. Beyond that it's just extra crap for most people. The basis for this post is just to get people to understand that saying how much you hate this or that just makes you look like a child. Of course I would hope most of you know this already, which would basically make you trolls, as you just look for an argument from somebody as equally stubborn as yourself that has the opposite stance as you. Also I was extremely bored and felt like typing a bunch of crap. Also most of you Apple haters will be happy to know that Steve Jobs has just died.

if you dont like it, dont buy it... speaking of upgrades, wonder how many android phones will come out next year! i would get bored counting... better yet, wonder how many androids will not get the ICS update? only to become obsolete. then for those who do get the update, i wonder how long most android fans will be waiting... till next year when jellybean is being released, lmao. unit for unit, apple still is number one by far.

38. rsslmrvn unregistered

whenever apple is launching a new products all people are commenting too much? apple is creating their products for people who likes to buy it, and they are not forcing anyone to buy their products? cant you see the number of devices they sold.. commenting like im not buying that crap products doesnt make any sense. Still people buy the iphone because they want them and not because they need them.

Please stop with the processor fiasco. Its really getting tiresome. Its all i ever see on PA's posts. Why dont you spec sickos talk about UI or an awesome app, or even build quality? A "smart phone" is not just about specs.

A the same quality thats notorious for breaking and shattering with the smallest of falls or knocks?! The same build quality were the home menu button gets stuck very often? The same build quality were large numbers of iphones 'break' down after the one year warranty has just expired?!

You guys might as well become a damn iPhone 4S page. Its not a big deal. Its not Jesus Christ.

12. notsteve unregistered

if you referring Jesus Christ as a person, i have no comment but if you referring Jesus Christ as a god, i really wonder how can in the modern age, on a tech (mobile phone) site, you spread (believe in such) a fairy tale???

Why you need to be angry? I was raised in Catholic school, then christian school. I really respect Jesus as a person who have a big vision on human kind. Just like I respect mother teresa, buddha gautama. I don't insult jesus. And what I said about religion as a fairy tale is also not false. In today american society, academy award for example, shown that none of the actor/actress were a believer because in modern days. Because as we become more knowledgeable the fake in religion were become easily spotted.
