Now part of the iPhone generation.

I'm usually skeptical when reviewing mobile phones but felt the need to as I'm really impressed.
I had the 3GS and did not intend to go back to Apple, the 3GS was slow, basic and not worth it at all.
The 4S is very fast on 3G or WIFI and there is no shortage of apps, its true that you can effectively run your life on this phone wether it is banking/shopping or just entertainment.
The screen is beautiful and clear, the only better screen I have seen on a handheld device is the PS Vita. I honestly think Apple have perfected the touchscreen also as its robust and accurate.
I have only two particular annoyances with the 4S, one being primitive and the other being major.
The charge/sync cable is less than a metre long, petty I know but it is rather annoying.
The major problem is the battery life, its not far from pathetic, if you are using an app for over 5 minutes you can witness the percentage dropping up to 5%. I understand that its a powerful phone processor and display wise and Apple are good when recommending tips to save battery life but the bottom line is simple, if your are paying £400+ for a device then the battery should last more than a day!
All in all I am more than happy with the phone as it trampled over bad memories of the 3GS.
Point to note, after using the 4S and the 5 model I chose the 4S. I was more impressed by it!
