20 October 2011

I do really like my iPhone 4S, but one important difference between it and my iPhone 4: If you are on ATT, the 4S will NOT allow you to switch 3G OFF to DOUBLE your battery life like the 4.

This really bothers me, although Siri apparently really needs 3G.

what you didn't mention... the iphone 4s lacks batterylife BIG TIME

Apple says it has a batterylife than the iphone 4, in the real life it certainly doesn't. Get used to find a socket every 8 hours with the 4S!

The iphone 4 will keep you safe for 2 days.

I think the dualprocessor sucks to much power from the battery, shooting pictures, video is more data hungry so the processor has to work harder. the battery is the same, the iOS also. So what did you expect.

It is a comparison between power and usertime.

Can you name even one thing the iPhone does that an Android can't? Cause I can certainly produce a list of the exact opposite. Even Siri is a ripoff of Jeannie.

The title should have been. Should i get ripped or not? Why bother buying ip4 or ip4s? Why give 2x the money for a mobile thats useless and i can get a better one with more features for half the price or even 1/3 the price. Why give my money to apple for their overpriced piece of c... products?

most of phones released either early 2010 or 2009 don't even support 2.3 or OEMs never released 2.3.
apart from galaxy s ?

iPhone 3GS still runs iOS 5 and supports everything like a charm.

i love the way people support android.

2009 users need to buy new phones since those phone incompatible for software upgrade.
so people buy 2 android devices by the time people upgrade iPhone just once.

500k apps on android market but google still take no steps to reduce malware or test them before releasing into their store.

Even though iphone is little bit restricted , its the best rather than waiting for OEMs to release updates and desperately buying devices every now and then.

Not the big upgrade I was hoping for but an upgrade none the less. I don't mind the same design; I love the iPhone 4 design, but only if the display was a tat bigger I would have spent the night outside Apple store at the launch day.

My mate's iphone4 has crashed 5 times since upgrading ios 5 and he has reported a slight 'slow down overall'. Does that mean his experience is representative of everyone else who has an iphone? Of course it doesn't! In fact I can't wait to test the new iphone for myself :-)
Stop being silly about things. It's just a phone for gawd sake. People take themselves way too seriously sometimes.
