The new iPhone 4S from Apple has finally been released into the wild! Kevin Pereira and Candace Bailey take a close look at the smartphone on Gadget Pr0n with its virtual assistant, Siri, the 8 megapixel camera and Apple's dual core A5 processor.
What You Need To Know
The iPhone 4S is almost exactly the same weight as the iPhone 4 and weighs only 3 grams heavier.
The screen is this size because Apple engineers want the entire screen to be accessible by your thumb.
With the 8 megapixel camera, the images look sharp and clear.
Even at night, we found little issues with noise.
The aperture is now bigger at F2.4 versus the old F2.8.
The camera also shoots 1080p video at 30 fps, and we had no trouble finding auto focus while filming.
The iPhone 4S can truly replace your point and shoot cameras.
The dual core A5 processor was as fast as we hoped.
The processor cores in the phone run at 800MHz, which makes it noticeably faster than the iPhone 4.
Browsing the web was faster, too and even on the same Wi-fi signal, the 4S consistently beat the 4.
Apple is really proud of Siri, the iPhone 4S's built in digital assistant.
What sets this voice command system apart from other smartphones is the way you talk to it.
You don't have to learn specific commands to get the iPhone 4S to do things.
When Siri works, it is truly amazing and that's about 65-75% of the time.
$199 with a contract from Sprint, AT&T or Verizon Wireless.
