Criteria Comments Rating
- Reception and call quality It works a lot better than the iPhone 3GS and iPhone 4.
- Display Still the awesome retina display
- Battery life Still have to charge it up every day.
- Camera No comments
- Ease of use A grid of icons, very simple to use.
- Design and form factor Feels like the Porsche of smartphones.
- Portability (size / weight) Heavier than it appears, but it has a good kind of weight to it.
- Media support Its Apple, the creator of the iPod. Between the Apple ecosystem and third party apps you're more than covered.
- Durability Glass front and glass back. If dropped the back glass will shatter first 90% of the time. Still slightly annoying.
- Ecosystem (apps, accessories, etc.) There is an App for that!
Great phone and nice update to the iPhone 4. The iPhone 4S is extremely fast and the camera is the best I have ever seen on a smartphone. Siri is nice and the App store greatly extends the functionality of the phone. iCloud is also another plus if you use a bunch of other Apple products; good to the point that I would recommend it over the Google Apps if you have a Mac and iPhone. The phone feels really good in the hand and has a nice weight to it. The multimedia capabilities and games of the iPhone are still unmatched.
