Apple iPhone 4S: First Impressions
First impression? FANTASTIC.
Why do I say this? Siri. The AI [artificial intelligence[ voice command features on this thing with the “remind” feature is simply outstanding and so helpful. You’ve almost got to experience to appreciate it fully, but the Apple videos about Siri are not at all exagerrating. I already know this is going to be extremely helpful to me keeping me up on things and remind me of things I’ve got to do, all with voice commands. I love the camera upgrade and they’ve also upgraded the sound recording on it.
The picture quality is truly outstanding. Perhaps somebody can tell me if I’m wrong, but the screen looks better to me. I think they adjusted slightly the color balance. But whatever is going on, it is “sharper” and even nicer to look at it. I think Apple really has hit its stride with iPhone 4S. And the fact that now it is avaialable across multiple cell phone providers makes it an even better option for more people. If you have been waiting to get an iPhone, I’d say, now’s the time to take the plunge. The iPhone 4S is a dream come true and I can only imagine how the AI is going to continue to improve. I’m also very pleased the dimensions of the iPhone have not changed, allowing me to continuing using my Mophie external battery case, which is really nice since I’m burning more battery power than ever using Siri and location services.
So many other nice enhancements and features, I can’t really even begin to describe them all. I guess if you have not been an iPhone user from day one, you won’t appreciate all this as much, but trust me…this is a quantum leap forward.
Frankly, I could not be more pleased. Steve Jobs really new how to go out on the top! Kudos, Apple. Home run!
