How to Get a Free iPhone 4S

Keep surprises away with the packaging. As always, the box is barely larger than the iPhone 4S itself and has room for just the bare essentials. We found the usual charger, a USB cable and also the same set of 3.5mm earphones as the one we got using the 3GS and also the iPhone 4. Click Here How to Get a Free iPhone 4S

Amidst the booklets (an iPhone 4S brochure and product guide) there are the SIM eject tool and a couple of Apple logo stickers. That’s that.

We though we'd discover the newly announced microUSB adapter in our European retail package, but there’s no such thing. We wonder exactly what the EU commission has to say about this.

Apple iPhone 4S 360-degree spin

The iPhone 4S has exactly the same size and styling as its predecessor. Will still be one of the best-looking smartphones we’ve seen. The impressively slim handset measures 115.2 x 58.6 x 9.3 mm and it has placed on only 3 grams of weight as compared to the iPhone 4.

The Retina display - we know you want one

The iPhone 4 had probably the best screen available on the market in June 2010. Obviously Super AMOLED’s and ClearBlack’s had a thing or two to say, however the LED-backlit IPS Retina screen had the greatest resolution at 960 x 640 and eye-popping pixel density.

A year later, Super AMOLED screens are making their HD debut within the Samsung Galaxy Nexus we now have the first HD display on the mobile phone. That’s obviously something for the iPhone 5 to try and best but the old Retina is still one of the standard-setting screens.
If you’re looking for hard arguments in favor of upgrading from an iPhone 4, the display isn't one of them. But the honest truth is few can match the Retina because of its crisp graphics, vibrant colors, deep blacks and remarkable sunlight legibility and viewing angles.

Alright, Apple may’ve raised their own bar too high with the Retina display, but we believe they’ve got a level bigger worry. Improving a screen is really a bet on numbers. If all else fails, up the resolution. But how about something intangible and elusive like personality and visual appearance. They’re in for an enormous challenge with the iPhone 5.
And it’s almost all their fault. We believe it’s next to impossible to repeat the iPhone 4 magic. But go ahead, prove us wrong, Apple.

It’s been at least a year and we still find the iPhone 4 tough to resist. Probably the most minimalist phone designs is among the most compelling. Of course, there is a flipside. The handling is tricky, so be careful a minimum of in the beginning. The finish just doesn’t allow as secure a grip. The glass back is relatively resistant to scratches but unlikely to outlive drops. The look includes a weak spot - four of them actually - the corners. And the antenna issues were embarrassing, as you would expect. Fortunately they’ve been sorted.

In the end though, the iPhone 4S is nothing lacking beautiful. Fifteen months and counting, and very few flagships happen to be able to compare.
Let's get to work though and set things right into a more practical perspective. Although it’s virtually exactly the same design, some of the old iPhone 4 accessories won’t fit the 4S. The Mute button 's the reason, it’s slightly offset when compared to iPhone 4, but it’s just the same as around the iPhone 4 for Verizon.
Let’s take a closer look at the iPhone 4S then shall, we? There is nothing surprising at the front. The VGA back facing camera and also the earpiece are over the screen, with hidden proximity and ambient light sensors nearby, The round Home button is below the display doing its usual job of closing apps and opening the multi-tasking bar. It now launches the Siri va too.

The left side from the Apple iPhone 4S has the usual Ring/Silent switch and the two round volume control knobs. In iOS 5 the volume up key doubles like a camera shutter too. This area of the iPhone 4S is the major reason your old case may not fit - the Mute key has been moved a few millimeters down, the amount keys have moved a millimeter too. We guess the new antenna design might have something related to that.

Around the right side is the microSIM card slot. To spread out it you will need the enclosed SIM eject tool. A paper clip or a pin would do too.

The top is where the Sleep/Wake button is, along with the standard 3.5mm audio jack. There is an extra mic too employed for the active noise cancelation.

The iPhone 4S has got the proprietary Apple USB cable/charger/dock connector at the bottom, as well as a tiny loudspeaker grill and mouthpiece either side of the connectivity port. No stereo speakers, all over again.

The rear features the 8 megapixel camera lens and the single LED flash. The iPhone 4S Li-Po battery has been upgraded to 1430mAh and it is non user replaceable. There isn't any microSD card slot either, not too we expected to see one.

One further switch to mention may be the antenna design. Speaking of which, the bumper
cases are no longer needed apart from for protection. Apple learned their lesson from the iPhone 4 and while the iPhone 4S looks practically the same, it features two antennas to combat the "death grip" issue. Observe that we don’t mean the dual GSM / CDMA radios. It’s actually two separate antennas, each of which support both standards.

The telephone can intelligently switch between the two when needed (even in the middle of a phone call), therefore if one antenna is blocked, the other gets control. What this means is no death grip, regardless of how you hold the iPhone 4S.

Unfortunately, the SAR values have gone up and are two times as high in iPhone 4S. Those continue to be inside the accepted standards for these types of things, but it’s something that’s worth noting.

What we should know for sure may be the iOS 5 is not skimping around the upgrades. A beautiful phone just become better and faster. Twice faster sometimes, which was really impressive. The iPhone 4 is nowhere near sluggish but it’s good to know you will find the extra torque when needed. And finally, the iPhone 4S finally makes the A-list with 8MP stills and Full HD videos. We’ve got a dual-core smartphone and a full fledged cameraphone browsing the lab. Let’s not ensure that it stays idle.
