Apple iPhone 4S phone

O n the outside of the Apple iPhone 4S you will not directly observe any differences compared to its popular predecessor, the iPhone 4. But appearances are deceiving. The Apple iPhone 4S uses the new iOS 5 operating system, offers a dual-core processor, intelligent assistant Siri and a further improved 8 megapixel digital camera. The dual-core A5 chip image processor makes the Apple iPhone 4S an extremely fast smartphone. The Apple iPhone 4S delivers really fast multimedia performance, has twice the processing power and provides graphics up to seven times faster than the iPhone 4, while the battery life is still extremely long. With the intelligent assistant Siri you can always and everywhere ask for help. Siri is smart enough to understand what you mean. For example, you ask; "How busy is the traffic here", Siri determines your current location based on where you are to understand what you mean by 'here'.
