A joy to use, easy and fun and loaded with features (and potential! :)Created: 16/04/2013
This iPhone 4s is the best phone product I have ever used (ios 6.1.3 at time of writing, April 2013). from scrolling the menus to navigating using apps, this phone has plenty of power and the battery seems to last the day with some use all round (gps included).
The phone signal is generally strong and seems more reliable and stable than my older iPhone 3Gs, the same goes for the gps and compass, the buttons and the camera. The camera is actually pretty fast and it is very easy to share photos with other apple and non-apple users via email, facebook, shared albums etc.
The speakerphone quality is quite high and the normal speaker is quite good (provided the phone on the other end is good too!)
Answering the top rated review questions:
1. I bought this product because I needed a better all-round phone including phone signal, camera, gps, a faster interface and ease of use. This phone hit all the marks perfectly for me.
2. I love everything about the product but I dislike that I cant do some technical things (app-based though, NO Jailbreaking) like wifi-frequency scanning, Bluetooth to any phone natively without using a non-apple app (there is a way around) and file access to storage, not just the photos.
3. Drawing a comparison to others (including the latest android phones - Generally), I think this phone is easier to use because of the structure and layout of the menus. the settings and details of the phone are easily accessible via the settings icon and when you want specific apps, you just go to where you have put them. You don't have to do anything complicated to organise your apps and the process only takes about two or three movements of your finger (if you even need to organise them!)
Everything on the whole is logically laid out and customizable (within reason) and the software is quite stable moving between many apps over the period of a month. If you need to do things that the phone natively doesn't support, think outside the box and see if you can do them another way. If you cant Bluetooth to another phone, use a wifi file app! if you want to send files to a pc, do the same! It's fun and easy to do these things with your new phones and this one is no different! Go crazy and enjoy!!!! ...Read more
I fully recommend this as a business tool and hope that Apple will improveCreated: 09/11/2011
- I have not owned an apple product to date. Have used top or the range Nokia N97 and Blackberry Torch and have been quite happy with them. This phone is very easy to use, love the responsive touch screen, the glass seems very resistant to scratch. Apps are great and all is very user friendly. Call sound quality is good as is signal reception. Battery lasts me the full day with lots of use regardless of others bad experiences I have about 40% power left right now at 9pm after a good days using of facebook, email, browsing and Siri. When she works. That would be at the mo my only complaint is that Siri the assistant seems to have taken unauthorized leave. The assistant is very eratic and many times cannot connect to the network. I understand this is a Beta version and as such not yet complete, and I can live with that...for now. But you do become reliant and when you need it you need it. So if it works 80% it would be acceptable, but I am getting about 35% successful response from Siri. When she works it is it great. She seems to understand most of what I say even though I have a sort of South African accent and not American or Uk. She is witty, sarcastic and helpful. I like that she is not just a robot and seems to think for herself and not just give the same old robotic answers. She is quite addictive and fun. Music and sound quality is fantastic as is the photo and video quality. Back to Siri, it would be great if she would vocally do the reminding of appointments and reminders. Perhaps this may come in the future. The phone hooks up easily to wifi where ever you go and will prefer wifi to data over isp so you do not get wacked with big data usage. Overall good phone. I ordered a Life Proof cover which will protect it a bit better and also ensure waterproofing. I fully recommend this as a business tool and hope that Apple will improve and enhance their server capacity so that we can make full use of the Siri side of things. ...Read more
