Why all the 4S dissapointment - Page 7

post #61 of 73
My problem with the iPhone 4S is that it does not seem to be very innovative. Its almost like Apple ran out of time for getting the iPhone 5 out this year so instead they took the iPhone 4 stuck the processor from the iPad 2 in it along with a better camera and called it the iPhone 4S. Its nice but nothing revolutionary, and surely a bit of a letdown for a company known for being innovative and only releasing one device a year.

The problem is speculators spreading rumors instead of facts.

I expected the 4S and nothing more because it's what they did after the 3G and they made big money on the 3GS. Why would they change everything so soon?

I use my phone for gaming more than I do my console or PC and I for one and am excited as hell for the 4S.

I called this as the next upgrade when they first started talking about dual-core cpus in phones. I said the next phone (after the 4) would be a 4s just like the 3gs followed the 3g. It was evolutionary, more power, better features, fix any issues with the previous version, and introduce better software and services.

People built themselves up to some crazy iPhone 5 and don't appreciate that this is a great upgrade for people who don't have a current gen cell phone. Those of us who don't pay to upgrade phones mid-contract are happy about this, because I'd take this over any Android phones right now for form factor and performance.

And no, I'm not a fanboy, I'm a happy android user who tries to not be a fanboy of anything.
LOL, the tech is not the same as 4G.

I want a bigger screen and LTE. The new radio WILL be limited by the carriers. Theoretical speed =/= real world speed. It won't be much different.

Wait... Did you miss the part about redesigned camera? Increased download speeds? Improved phone signal? Faster processor? Even faster GPU? World phone? Even greater battery life? iOS 5? SIRI? iCloud? Cards (i keed)? BT4.0? 64gb? Possibly more ram?

The only complaints anyone is having is that the screen is not larger, the phone is not a re-design, and no LTE. Aside from that, it seems everything else was improved, what more do you want? By this time, next year, you'll have A6, next gen LTE chipsets will draw less power and the network should have a wider coverage so it will be feasible to include, re-design, and most likely a larger screen cause everyone won't stop crying about it.

I'm personally 100% fine with the re-vamp and will get it towards the winter. Gonna have to buy out of contract (HATE sprint. roaming 70% of the time) and switch to verizon for it, so waiting a bit longer will be less money out of my pocket.

Couldn't care about lack of LTE for three reasons.
1) 3G speeds are perfectly acceptable, people just need patience
2) 4G's overrated unless you're trying to update a handful of apps at a time (which I usually do while it's sitting idle at home)
3) the updated radio signal and speeds look very appealing in comparison to a marketing gimmick (mandatory $10 extra a month for 4G Sp33D5!1!!1, which I never use because I'm a patient human being and can wait a few more seconds)

Oh and so I don't get flamed, this is coming from someone who's using an Android phone (Evo Shift to be exact).

Someone never tethers or uses mobile hotspot... or streams much video.

Thank you! Seriously, the CPU, RAM, capacity and camera are very nice bumps. From iPhone 2G -> 3G, there wasn't any compelling feature that made me want to upgrade. It still had the same processor. AT&T's EDGE network was actually pretty decent back then - I was getting around 300~400Kbps which isn't bad for the type of browsing I do (text heavy sites).

However, the increased RAM and faster CPU on the 3GS, as well as the bump to 32GB capacity are much appreciated. Frankly, the processors on the iPhone 2G and 3G are just too darned slow. Oftentimes, what kept me waiting was rendering a page (remember those checkerboards on Safari?) rather than download speeds. I also used a couple of apps that are fairly heavy on memory usage so those kept crashing. Safari also crashed frequently due to lack of memory (128MB is just too small). Even with 512MB RAM on the iPhone 4, there are still times I run into issues caused by lack of memory (particularly when I have a lot of apps running in the background). Running the iPad 2 and iPhone 4 side by side, the iPad is definitely snappier when it comes to launching apps, opening new tabs, etc.

Seriously, if Apple had put the iPhone 4S's innards into a different form factor, people would be singing a different tune. While the 4S may not look different compared to the iPhone 4, the upgrades under the hood are pretty significant and probably necessary if they want to have the same 326 ppi pixel density on a bigger 4~5" device.
