Apple iPhone 4S 16GB Review
Following the upgrade from the iPhone 3GS to the new 4 series of handset there was a lot of speculation as to what would come next and although many were expecting the full upgrade to the iPhone 5 the release of the iPhone 4S didn’t disappoint.
With a number of significant changes the new iPhone 4S 16GB has improved in many of the areas that were seen to be lacking by users of the previous iPhone. The new technical enhancement have made the new handset more than just a phone for just new iPhone users, making it a worthwhile upgrade for existing users too.
What does the iPhone 4S 16GB offer users?
Starting with the cosmetic aspects of the handset, the new iPhone 4S 16GB is almost exactly the same as the iPhone 4 series but it does have an option for users to buy the device in white rather than the regular steel silver colour.
With just 16GB of storage the iPhone 4S is the entry level model in the range and apart from the extra colour option the main focus of this latest upgrade has been to improve the overall specification of the iPhone 4S 16GB to set it apart from the iPhone 4 model. These new features and facilities include:
- A dual core A5 processor like the one used in the Apple iPad 2 that runs at a speed of 800MHz
- Apple ‘retina display’ running on a 3.5” screen with a resolution of 960 x 640 and provide incredibly sharp picture output due to its pixel density which is 326ppi and a contrast ratio of 800:1
- An internal memory of 512MB and an external storage capacity of 16GB, although the higher priced iPhone 4S models come with either 32GB or 64GB
- New 8 Megapixel camera with back illumination behind the lens offering incredible picture or video output and for FaceTime use there is a front mounted VGA camera
- The latest iOS 5 operating system which is considerable tweaked upgrade from the previous iOS 4
- A voice recognition digital assistant called Siri that is able to able to take any spoken request and respond with either an answer or by accessing an relevant app that relates to the request
Who will get the most out of the iPhone 4S 16GB?
Even though the overall look of the new iPhone 4S 16GB has remained the same the internal workings of the device have gone through a fairly significant change that will not only be perfect for first time iPhone buyers but will also give existing iPhone users a genuine reason to upgrade their handsets. The new specification combined with its ever increasing range of incredible apps are more than enough reason for personal and business users alike to pick this handset above the other smartphones that are currently on the market.
