The IPhone was released by Apple on November 10th 2011.
After having this phone a good few months I can say I am impressed with everything. The build quality is outstanding, the response from the touch screen is very accurate. It has lots of memory and is very fast when playing games.
The AppStore has millions of downloadable programs to use. New software allows you to multitask with as many apps that you want the phone can handle a lot of them running in the background the only bad thing is if you don't close them they can really drain your battery fast. The battery goes low every day by the night time you will need to charge it but it has to run the display which is very detailed and it drains the battery. When charging the IPhone it only takes about 3 hours from having no battery at all which is super fast.
You can get the IPhone in black or white only! The memory sizes are 16GB and 32GB this IPhone runs iOS 5.0.1 and the difference between IPhone 4 and 4S it that the IPhone 4S has a better camera by 3MP's and the video is 1080P not 720P, it also has Siri which is the upgrade from voice control. The main big improvement is IPhone 4S has dual cores. This phone is around £400 brand new to buy from websites or in stores. So the price is not that bad for everything this amazing piece of technology can achieve.
New software is always making this phone better and since I have had this phone I have had over 3 big updates which always make the phone better than before. An update I liked was the custom dictionary where you can make your own word shortcuts for example if you wanted to say no problem fast make a shortcut for "np" and it will automatically change to no problem every time you write "np".
It has a 5MP camera and 720p video so you can capture crisp and vivid images and films also you can edit pictures on the phones software now. There is a front camera which you can use to take pictures or recording a video but most of all use it for facetime, front camera also works with facetime. The flash on the camera is a very bright white LED which lights up dark rooms with ease. Also allows for great night time photos.
The speakers are loud and when in calls there is no problem with hearing the other person or for them to hear you. Great to talk on and text on with the touch screen keypad. Voice control is great too as you can say things like call "friends name" and it will call them which I think is a great feature. Surfing the internet is very fast on the mobiles connection with 3G on its even faster. The screen is such high quality videos and websites are very clear and easy to read.
A big bonus with an apple product is there is so many speakers for them and docking stations for playing music which is a great bonus to a great phone.
When you come to sync your IPhone to your computer it's very easy and then you can sync your games and music to the computer or from the computer to IPhone.
The only downside to this phone is the Bluetooth is locked to apple products for some reason and won't connect to any other phone apart from another IPhone or IPod.
If you are looking for a new phone this is the one to get. It's outstanding in the so many ways!
Summary: 9/10 All in all great phone and cant say i would want anything else apart from an apple product!
