Direct Link To This Post Topic: New iPhone 4S
    Posted: Oct/04/2011 at 9:46am

New phone just dropped. iPhone 4S. Form factor is about the same.

Processor - A5. Dual Core, 1 Ghz. 2x as fast CPU, and 7x as fast graphic display. This has to be seen to actually be seen.

Battery - 8 hours of talk time on 3g, 14 hours of talk time on EDGE, 10 hours of music, 40 hours of video. 

Antennae - has been redesigned to switch between two, thus making theoretical download speeds twice as fast. Thats 14.4 mbps as opposed to the 7.2 on the iphone 4. Also, 4S is now a true world phone, GSM as well as CDMA. That means you get 4G speeds for the cost of a 3G antennae, without the heavy drainage on the battery life. 

Camera - New 8 MP sensor. Not to be confused with an 8 MP camera, like your traditional point and shoot. An 8 MP sensor means a world of a difference, this packs 60% more pixels than the previous camera, and has a resolution of 3264 x 2448. That means its shooting 1080p, and shooting it very well. 5 layer lens increases white balance by 25%, 30% more sharpness, and aperture gets down to 2.4. 2.4! For comparison, my best professional dSLR lens gets down to 1.8! 2.4 in a phone is ridiculous. The new camera shoots 3x faster than a Droid Bionic.

iMessages - Apples answer to BBM, send free texts to any iOS device, ipod, iphone, desktop, or ipad. Take that ATT.

Voice Assistant - Called Siri. Easily the most comprehensive voice control I've ever seen, not just on a phone, but on any electronic device. You can speak into your phone and pretty much ask it anything. 'Find me a good mexican restaurant in the area'. 'Do I need a raincoat today?' 'Define mitosis'. 'Wake me up tomorrow at 9:30 am'. 'Remind me to call my wife for her birthday.' Has to be seen to be realized. Looks like something out of minority report, or Jarvis from Iron Man.

Price - iPhone 3GS is now free. iPhone 4 is now $100. iPhone 4S is 200, 300, 400, for 16gb, 32gb, and 64gb, respectively. Available October 14, pre-orders start October 7.

don't be suckered...this is just a "band aid" for what are obviously major delays in their iphone5 HW.  i certainly give apple credit for turning a major engineering disaster/delay into an opportunity to sell yet one more product to their brainwashed legions, but use some common sense unless you just love donating your hard earned money to the church of apple! Clap

Furthermore, if history has taught us anything, then it is that the initial release of any hot, rushed, consumer product such as those from Apple, will be full of bugs and major issues.

Be smart and wait out the initial hype to get a good product.

+1.  new features are nice, but this is by no means worth an upgrade for most people.  yet it will be and will generate tons of revenue for apple.  well played from a financial point of view for them.  but as far as innovation...not so much.

Actually, I just remembered the scam Apple pulled on the folks with the 3 when the 4 came out.  They upgraded EVERYONE's SW to be compatible with the 3GS/4 and broke all the 3s knowingly and without a care to force an upgrade.

I think I will seriously consider a class-action lawsuit if they pull this again. Angry

My 3GS is so old and cracked around the edges.  As much as I wanted the 5, I will settle for the 4S.  Definitely an upgrade from the 3GS.

I do hate that every software update seems to make old phones work even slower.  It's Apples way to entice people to upgrade.

I thought 3G was basically forced to upgrade to new firmware / OS and it basically broke the phone to the point of being unusable.  I think they got BETTER with later iterations of iOS 4, but I heard so many issues I just didn't upgrade my firmware on my 3G.

I'm on the fence between waiting out the 5 and going 4G.
ROLL ON, BISHES.

The release was definitely not what I expected. I didn't plan on buying one anyways so it doesn't really matter in the end for me

Iphone has not been innovative since the release of the original 2G. they just rode the marketing wave and collected all the iSheep along the way.  Seriously, it took them over a year to come up with this?  What a let down to all the hype they've been trying to generate.  Even Blackberries took a bigger leap.

 I wouldn't go that far. The retina display of the IP4 was quite a technological leap. There wasn't a phone released at the time with that sort of display. Even today, it's still arguably the best looking display. 960x640 on a 3.5 in display while keeping the battery drain low is quite the feat in engineering. The next best display is probably be samsung's 800x480 super amoled display which is on a 4.3 in screen.

As for the IP4s... pretty tame phone. I'm surprised this is what they came up with after ~15 months. When we heard they couldn't make the 1 year redesign deadline, I think most people were expecting a giant upgrade. I'm disappointed and won't be upgrading... my contract doesn't end until the summer of 12 anyway.

However, I will agree with giftedhands and say the camera does look pretty awesome. Just the f/2.4 is impressive. Obviously, how fast the lens is doesn't determine image quality... you gotta look at the sensor and lens and all that... but still, f/2.4 is impressive for a phone camera. Obviously, it isn't going to replace my DSLR or even my P&S(Canon S95) but it'll take decent pics when I don't have either on me.

This isn't possible for CDMA/Verizon.  4G = LTE.  This phone doesn't have a LTE chip in it.  You can't design an antenna to get higher speeds.  But, you can design an antenna to be more efficient. As far as GSM/AT&T, well maybe they have HSDPA+ or some other high data rate technology.  Nice marketing.

Pretty sure you won't be able to talk to her through the iMessage yet....

Once the IOS5 is available for DL in iTunes (System update) though you'll be able to I think.
My friend and I have the 4 and he was showing me that and said we just have to wait for it to be available.

Correct me if I'm wrong?

Yes, I believe iOS5 will be released on October 12.

Let me start out with this. I am in no way an Apple fanboy, my main computer is a Windows. I was really hoping for an iPhone 5 to replace my 1st gen iPhone....
 
The iPhone 5 does exist. I just don't think Apple is wants to release it yet or theres probably some major setbacks. The iPhone 5 has shown up in Sprint, Radio Shack, ATT, and Verizon's inventory systems clearly stating the new features like 4 in. screen and 4G internet speeds. There are photos of Cinnciatti Bell's and ATT's inventory computers clearly listing iPhone 5s at both the 16GB and 32GB capacities. There are also some iPhone 5 cases floating around AT&T stores, I saw one myself this weekend and it is a lot wider than an iPhone 4 case.
 
Its very possible that the patent war between Apple and Samsung is what is holding back the iPhone 5, some news articles have already said that Samsung has moved to block the release of the iPhone 5. There are also articles stating that there is a manufacturing problem with the new screen.

Well thats the funny thing about it. Many manufacturers, advertise 14.4 as '4G' speeds, when as you pointed out, aren't technically true 4G. 14.4 is the speed of the Motorola Atrix 4G, or the HTC Inspire 4G. And Apple isn't calling it a 4G phone, I did, bc in comparison to the other '4g' phones out there, the iphone 4S is accomplishing the same speeds. There are very very few true 4g phones out there right now in the American market. But 14.4 on this phone, is particularly impressive to me, bc the battery life is far better. In regards to the antenna, having multiple simultaneous antennaes transmit and receive, has indeed made the phone more efficient, and also doubled its theoretical speed. Thats not just my opinion..

Really bc they didn't change the outside shell, you don't like it? Wow time to pull out my laptop from 2007, it still looks pretty much the same. So it doesn't matter. I wasn't planning on getting the 5 but the 4s is tempting me. Still don't think i will but i will probably talk my dad in to getting the 4s over his 3Gs.

I'm thinking I will just give my wife the 4 and I will use her upgrade to get the 4s. She most likely won't know how to use 99% of the features of either of them anyways.

Considering that the actual designer of the iphone.. and well, the imac, ipad, macbook pro and macbook air.. is Jony Ive and not Steve Jobs.. I'd say the next big player is still the same big player.

I could understand these making the phone capable of higher speeds and decrease power consumption.  Basically receive diversity antennas among others.  But, not one antenna design would accomplish the 14.4 speed.  That's where I misunderstood.

The artificial intelligence on the new Iphone is intriguing, but I'd really have to see it perform in real life. I saw a clip on the news, and the guy said something like "Should I bring an umbrella today?" and the phone knew he was talking about weather, looked up the weather for his area, related the phrase about the umbrella to chance of rain, and then answered his question, which is awesome. But we all know that at the press conference to show off the phone, they know the exact way to phrase things so the phone  will understand. I'm curious to see how the ai will do in every day situations.

I'm also curious to see how long until Android phones do the exact same thing, but a little better and a little cheaper... Within a year? What do you guys think?
I'm just sayin'....

Actually, I just remembered the scam Apple pulled on the folks with the 3 when the 4 came out.  They upgraded EVERYONE's SW to be compatible with the 3GS/4 and broke all the 3s knowingly and without a care to force an upgrade.

I think I will seriously consider a class-action lawsuit if they pull this again. Angry
 
what is sw? l dont rmb ever hearing of this issue, but l'm not really on top of it anymore

software.  when ios4 came out, 3gs and 4 worked, but iphone 3g was stuck with the old crappy software.  but its really the firmware and OS, not the software.


but the firmware and os is software..

do you mean they made the firmware compatible for the older versions?

^^^Very cool.  Although it's been done before on mobile devices.  I think Nokia did this awhile back...when they actually made mobile phones that people wanted.

Also seen Microsoft try to integrate voice commands in cars to further enhance the "hands free" law.  Obviously, that didn't get much traction.

I hope Apple has the feature well tested.
Did you google it?

I don't expect it to work the same.  I expect Apple to be perfect.  Just like what everybody else wants Apple to be.

@ Ride - Yah, the idea itself isn't new, but I haven't seen it implemented this way at all. I'm also a big fan of wolframalpha, so I'm excited to see this on my handheld.

Dude its the off season what else is there to talk about?

And for the record this phone is very innovative, it just doesnt seem as innovative BECAUSE it is not what we have expected... yes there is another one coming BUT this is the best one available now...  If you dont like it wait... as for me? Im pulling the trigger and im going to enjoy it.
It comes and it goes, get it while it lasts.
