Advantages: Easy To Use, Great Memory
Disadvantages: Don't Like The Glass Cover
As this is my first review here on Dooyoo I wanted to write about something that I have a real passion and love for. The closest thing to hand and something which is always close to hand is my iPhone 4S. I have been using this device for around three months now and I just love it to bits. So I thought it would be worthy of my first Dooyoo review.
So first of all I should mention that I used to own an iPhone 3GS. So I am already familiar with the way the thing works. So obviously the first thing you notice is the look of the iPhone. It's thinner than the iPhone 3 and a little bit heavier. The back has a glass sheet over it which looks good but feels odd. I have also noticed how slippery this glass casing is, you put it on a relatively flat surface and it slides off. I found this to be quite annoying so I have bought a cover for the phone, not something I did with the previous iPhone.
When you start using the iPhone 4S you notice that it operates quicker than the older versions. Something you would expect I suppose. After having used it for a while I can say I have been impressed with the speed of the phone especially when updating the software. I also like the extra memory, 16GB gives you plenty of space to play about with. I have well over a thousand songs on there, lots of apps, books and photos and still have around 6GB left over to use. This is a big plus from the older versions of the phone.
I heard the original version of the 4 had problems, not so with this one. Everything has run very smoothly and very well. I have had no software issues and everything seems to work just as it should. This version has the Siri software on it which allows you to talk to the iPhone and give it commands, to be honest it's clever but I never really use it. This phone also has face time, another clever feature but one I don't really ever use.
The camera on this version seems to be better plus there are more features than the old version of the phone. I love the panorama setting where you can capture the full view when you are out and about. The picture quality is higher and the video seems to be better as well. I think one of the good things about this newer version is they have kept all the good things the same and improved the things that needed improving. The sound quality is slightly better, the signal seems as strong as ever and the way it connects to iCloud is brilliant.
For someone who has never used an iPhone before I think that they will pick up how to use the handset in no time. Most of the functions are easy to work out and you also get a little guide that gives you some handy tips. The handset is expensive to buy, I have a contract so I didn't buy the phone outright, but if I had to I'm not sure I would want to pay a few hundred pounds for it despite it being a very good phone.
Overall then I really like the iPhone 4S. It does everything my old iPhone did and a little more as well. The handset is easy to use and looks good, the sound quality when playing music is great, there are new handy features such as a mirror and a light and overall it's just a really good quality phone that I will no doubt enjoy using for a long time.
Summary: Top Class Phone
