Collection of iPhone 4S Reviews

Filed under Apple iPhone, iPhone Review

Yes we love reviews, especially from experts. And as was to be expected, many journalist / experts have written / recorded a review of the first official iPhone 4S. So what do they think of this new iPhone 4S from Apple? Now you can read a summary of different reviews about Apple’s latest smartphone.

 

Walt Mossberg for AllThingsD:

“Sometimes, as we all know, looks can be deceiving. While Apple’s latest iPhone doesn’t look different, and may not be the kind of blockbuster people expect from the company run by late Steve Jobs, it “thinks different”, to quote one of Apple’s old ad slogans. Inside its familiar-looking body there lurks a nascent artificial-intelligence system that has to be tried to be believed.”

MG Siegler for TechCrunch:

“I’m happy that Apple decided not to change the form factor even though they had to know there would be some backlash from a certain segment of the population. Instead, Apple focused on the other thing they do best: refining already great products to make them better. The iPhone 4 was a great product. The best smartphone ever made. Now it cedes that title to the iPhone 4S.”

Joshua Topolsky for This is my next:

“The iPhone 4S is a great device for some, but what if you’re thinking of upgrading from an iPhone 4? That’s a tougher call. The phone is faster, to be sure, and has an amazing camera. And of course, you can’t get Siri unless you have a 4S… but I just don’t know if any of those reasons are compelling enough to convince previous buyers to upgrade. The concept is a particularly hard sell for Verizon customers. The gap between this year’s model and last year’s model isn’t as wide as Apple would probably like.”

Jim Dalrymple for The Loop:

“You can look at each of the items that Apple will release in conjunction with the iPhone and be amazed with how innovative each one of them are. When you put them all together in one product like the iPhone 4S, you have an incredibly successful product that other companies just can’t compete with.”

David Pogue for The New York Times:

“The question isn’t what’s in a name? — it is: what’s in a phone? And the answer is: “A lot of amazing technology. And some of it feels like magic.”

Jason Snell for Macworld:

“Although the iPhone 4S sports a faster processor and an upgraded camera, the feature that everyone will be talking about is Siri. Siri, which replaces the Voice Control feature introduced with the iPhone 3GS, allows you to speak commands toyour phone and have it do your bidding. You even activate Siri the same way as you did Voice Control: by holding down the home button on the iPhone itself, or by holding down the control button on your wired or wireless headset.”

Brian X. Chen for WIRED:

“Apple never specified what the “S” stands for in iPhone 4S, and it may as well stand for Siri. Sure, the fifth-generation iPhone’s superb camera and speedy dual-core processor are classy additions. But Siri is the reason people should buy this phone.”

 

Here you can see a nice video about Siri. See Siri in action from Macworld:

So will you buy the Iphone 4s?

iPhone 3G 2009 Review (still worth it?)

iPhone 3G Review

Apple released the second generation of the iPhone back in July 08. It was an evolution rather than evolution from the first model. Featuring a GPS system and 3G functionality. Just as important was its price. It was half the price and twice the speed. But now 8 months later. Is the iPhone still the phone of choice?

Design

The user interface remained equal to the first model and it’s one of the biggest strengths for the iphone. Not only does it look gorgeous it’s also very functional. Just as functional is the outside. A very thin design that is almost all screen. On the side you’ll see two extremely functional buttons. Aninstant silencer and volume controls. The back shows the small lens Apple used for the camera and the apple logo. Just as on all the iPods.

Pros

The iPhone is very easy to use. Especially for a smart phone. Another nice feature are the sensors for light, touch and movement. Meaning that keeping the device sideways will change the screen, having the device by your ear will turn off the screen and so on. Especially the first one is highly successful and a really nice touch. Proof is the fact that every other phone manufacturer has tried to copy the technique. Other obvious benefits of this phone is the great design and the software.

Cons

Unfortunately the software has it flaws as well. It’s really too heavy for the iphone’s hardware, resulting in a slower phone. With this said don’t try to install too many apps or multitask too much. The camera and GPS are also a big pain. The camera just isn’t of this time. I know why apple did this. They didn’t want to let the bigger lens of a better quality compromise the design. Plus adding the pain of millions of settings that might be a problem for less technical users. The GPS isn’t as functional as it could be because of the limited software. No voice navigation and such is to be expected. Also the GPS signal is sometimes great (outside) but inside might be extremely inaccurate.

Competition

The iPhone 3G is old in tech terms and is almost celebrating its one year birthday this summer. Of course Apple’s competitors aren’t just sitting around. Consumers now have a huge lists of alternatives including the Nokia N97, Sony Xperia, Samsung Pixon and more. Some of these other phones have better hardware and a way lower price tag. Although the design and software functionality is still Apple’s territory.

Conclusion

One year after release the iPhone remains a great phone. It is easy to use and has a great design. Biggest flaw is the slow hardware and small camera lens. It has many competitors which are worth a look but its biggest competitor is still to come. A new iPhone. So best would be to wait for the next iPhone coming this June. Hang in there. It will be worth the wait.

When Apple first released the iPhone on January 9th 2007, it created massive sensation all across the globe with its amazing user interface and the sheer friendliness towards delivery of quality content towards users. The ‘iOS’ had certainly made a mark in its very first year with one ground breaking technology after another. Amazingly, Apple somehow kept improving their iPhones with every future version that came out. Presently, the 4th generation Apple iPhone is what has been the main talking point. In fact, the Apple iPhone 4 is so evolutionary in many ways that even most contemporary Operating systems combined together wouldn’t even come close to the innovative iOS 4 that the iPhone 4 works on.

Powered by the revolutionary 1 GHz A4 processor, the iPhone 4 combine’s raw power with beautiful elegance. Thanks to its dual glass body design and rounded steel bars at the edge, the iPhone 4 looks simply amazing from every angle. Available in the colors of just the traditional Black and White, the handset can be easily customized via the accessible back panel cover options.

Article by Vikram kumar

The world loves electronics. In turn the world loves anything that enhances their electronics. This can be something that makes an electronic work better, faster, longer and easier to use as well as to protect it. Most of us spend a lot of money on our electronics so it is no wonder that we seek products to enhance them. This has created an huge need and market for accessories for electronics. One personal electronic item that comes to my mind that I want to protect is my iPhone. Just like every accessory there are lots to choose from. A good iPhone case review can tell me all I need to know about my choice for an iPhone case.

The functionality of the iPhone is what makes it so special and it is why so many people want one. A iPhone case review should definitely review the functionality of the case. What good is the case if it keeps you from being able to use the iPhone? The big screen is supposed to be marveled in its full glory and not covered up or impeded by any cover. There’s that and the fact that you want everyone to be able to tell that that indeed is an iPhone in your hands. Ok, maybe that is just me but I doubt it. My point is that the iPhone case review should also address how low profile the case is or is not. Is it a huge bulky thing or is it slim and sleek?

It is easy to get caught up in just your accessories for your electronics. You start to become consumed by the way they make your electronics look. You consider whether or not the accessory adds to the overall look of your electronic or if it detracts from the look of our electronic. It is easy to forget, especially when it comes to protecting the electronic, that effectiveness is more important than looks…I think. An iPhone case review can help you remember that sober fact. Sometimes what looks good does nothing more than just look good. That sleek case could be leaving your iPhone exposed to the elements and you would have gone ahead and bought it on looks alone if you had not read that iPhone case review…whew!!!

No matter how many cases there are made for your iPhone chances are that the one that fits your needs perfectly doesn’t exist. It is more likely that you will have to prioritize the features of your iPhone case and figure out what is most important in your case and what is least important. Even though that iPhone case review said that it made it really hard to use your phone, it still looked great, and was pretty cheap with so-so protection. You might be ok with that. You might have a completely different set of priorities for your iPhone case. An iPhone review can help you mix and match the qualities of many different cases to find the one that best suits your needs. So if you see an iPhone case review read it.

Lose It! iPhone Application Review

March 30, 2011 by  
Filed under iPhone Review

Article by Matthew Davids

Lose It! is a handy little free application used to aid in weight loss. It’s packed with some great information on calorie counting, calorie burning, and motivators. The application starts with the person’s current weight and current goal. It logs this information and then continues to log information everyday giving the person a day to day progress. Lose It! can also sync with any friends that have it, or also Facebook and Twitter, playing off the idea that losing weight is easier when everyone is involved.

Once Lose It! establishes the user’s current weight and end goal, it then gives the option of a time line, from losing half a pound each week up to two pounds per week. From there it figures out how many calories you’re allowed to consume each day. Then all you have to do is plug in what you’re eating each day. Lose It! has tons of different foods and their caloric values already in its database, but just in case it doesn’t you’re even able to put in a recipe and it’ll figure it out from there. I found that option really nice for using new recipes. I also really liked how it had many fast food and grocery store specific brands. I was surprised that an apple wasn’t just an apple, it could be a certain kind, plus small, medium, or large.

Not only does Lose It! Keep track of your calorie consumption, but it also has a database of exercises the user can input and then see how that affects their daily calorie availabilities. Once again the app has many exercises to choose from, but if it doesn’t have it, you can configure a new exercise with a surprising amount of ease. I liked that it had things as simple as walking, but then added walking with your dog. I like to rollerblade a lot in the summer, and that actually wasn’t in its list, but it was easy enough to Google it, and then store it.

The motivators are new, but plays off an old idea. We lose weight faster and easier when it becomes a part of our life and not just something we’re doing on the side. Syncing with Facebook and Twitter is a great idea, for anyone using those. I liked the friend option, I found it a great way to bond with a friend and to share tips.

Calorie counting isn’t new, and there are dozens of different options out there for someone to try. I liked that Lose It! was free, it also wasn’t just simply a calorie counter, it compounded both eating and exercising in a really nonthreatening way. I wasn’t afraid to put in what I really ate, and I enjoyed watching my weight start to drop.

6 great ios 4 apps that take full advantage of the multitasking feature

March 30, 2011 by  
Filed under iPhone Review

Article by Michael Jones

Apple has updated their iPhone and iPad devices with a new operating system, which has a lot of bug fixes, improvements and new features, the most important of which is the multitasking capability. The multitasking on the iOS 4 is quite different from your usual desktop multitasking and the way Windows Mobile handles it. WM has “true” multitasking, where the user can run multiple programs at the same time, and the OS spreads the resources between them in an optimal manner.

The multitasking in iOS 4, however, is much like the one on Android in that it simply “freezes” the apps that are in the background, and restores them when you switch back. The only exception to this are some functions like music playing, Internet streaming and other similar tasks. This allows it to do most of the things users need, so the end result is pretty much the same, plus such a setup helps save battery and resources because the apps aren’t actually running at the same time.

But the thing is that apps must be written to support the feature, otherwise they won’t work. So all of the iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad apps that need multitasking will have to get an update from the developer. That isn’t a problem, but it’s going to be awhile before all of them receive it. For now, here are some of the best apps for iOS 4 that already support multitasking.

WordPress. The official app for this blogging software has been among the first to receive multitasking support, and it’s proved very useful for those who blog from their iPhone on the move. Now you can have it sit in the background while you search for information on the Internet, copy text, take a call or note, then go back and post everything to your blog.

Dropbox. If you didn’t already know, Dropbox is the most popular online file backup and syncing service, and the iOS app also supports Google Docs, which makes it a great universal tool for keeping your data safe and up to date. With multitasking support, you get the ability to take notes, prepare files and documents and do other tasks while the app is patiently waiting in the background for you to finish and return.

Navigon Mobile Navigator. Navigon Mobile Navigator is one of the best navigation software for the iPhone and iPad, and it got even better with multitasking support. Now you can have the app in the background telling you how to get to your destination, while you search for something on the Web using the browser, view documents or review your schedule (though you shouldn’t do all of that at once while driving 🙂 .

Evernote. This is the best note taking app for any operating system, including Mac OS X and Windows. Microsoft’s One Note is pretty good, too, but if you need a simpler way to manage your notes and files and sync them between devices (and across platforms), Evernote is the way to go. With multitasking, you can surf the Web, copy text and take photos, then go back to Evernote and store all of them as notes and reminders. Before this update, you basically had to open the app and folders every single time, unless you’ve done all the research beforehand (which is pretty hard to do).

Pandora. Pandora is the best live streaming app, which sadly only works in the US and Canada. Users create radio stations at Pandora’s online site, then stream their favorite music to their device for free. Of course, you need to have an always active data connection. With multitasking, you now finally have the ability to listen to great music while working on anything else on your iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch.

Twitteriffic. This is the best Twitter client for iOS devices, which has all the features you’ll ever need and receives constant updates from the developer. With multitasking, you can now have the app in the background and receive real time updates about the latest tweets and replies, so you won’t miss a thing (time is pretty important on Twitter, with some people posting updates literally every 5 minutes).

There are countless others great apps that take full advantage of the iOS 4 new multitasking feature, and you can find them on the iTunes marketplace with a simple search. This is truly a great addition to this already amazing operating system, and if you still haven’t updated, you should do it right now and check it out.
