"Close to a year later and the 4S remains the most reliable smartphone."

I am a man of many phones, I rotate between Android, Windows, and iPhone. The iPhone is continually the one that holds my preference and my pocket space, and here is why.

The iPhone's Retina Display is beautiful, its crisp, renders correct colors, and doesn't scratch easily. Pixels are all but non-existent, and at maximum brightness the screen is legible in the daylight. The one thing I would change is the size, not to something dramatic like 4.8 inches on the Galaxy S III, but between 3.7 and 4.2 inches. This would still allow the phone to be used single handedly, but would add in the benefits of a larger screen.

Reception on the iPhone is phenomenal, I have used the iPhone on Verizon and At&t and on both carriers the phone produced clear loud sounds from the earpiece, and people on the other line have never had issues understanding what I am saying.

Battery life on the iPhone is pretty good as well, this gets a 4 however due to the battery life not being consistent. My usage is pretty heavy, and does not very from day to day, but I do notice that the battery will hit the 20% mark around 6pm, this is with several text messages and emails, a few phone calls throughout the day and moderate web usage, as well as a few hours worth of music playback.

The design of the iPhone is phenomenal, you know that you are holding a quality piece of equipment. The glass and metal combo feel sturdy and look awesome together.

In terms of Apps and Media support, Apple is a HUGE forerunner for this in mobile tech. There is definitely no shortage of apps to download and iTunes has a phenomenal library. The one thing Android has over iOS is that iOS has less ways to download free music, which can be negative to some.

Overall the iPhone is still a phenomenal phone, and can keep up with many of the features that Android and Windows phones are still starting to introduce.

Apple iPhone 4S Written Review by Taylor


Apple iPhone 4S Written...
Falling in line with its predecessor, the iPhone 4S is easily one of the best phones we at PhoneDog have ever used. Many were expecting a totally new teardrop design and larger display, and felt letdown when Apple announced an evolutionary update versus the purported revolutionary new phone. Despite large amounts of disappointment following Apple's iPhone announcement just over two weeks ago, the 4S is still a great phone and packs a huge punch in a few key areas. Since the majority... more...
