Apple iPhone 4S
The iPhone 4S looks identical to last year's model but comes in a new 64GB flavor and upgrades the camera to include an 8-megapixel sensor with improved low-light performance and 1080p video capture. In terms of performance the new iPhone is reportedly up to 2x faster and is also capable of running on faster HSPA+ networks, reaching theoretical download speeds of up to 14.4Mbps.
Ability to use the volume up button for shutter control.
IOS 5x update makes it much easier to shoot photos quickly.

Tons of apps.
Full HD video recording.
Improved antenna design for speedier download speeds.

Upgraded camera from 5MP to 8MP.
Higher storage capacity.
Refined iOS 5
Excellent hardware construction, easy interface, excellent camera, speed to spare.
Dual-core A5 processor.
Maintains Excellent Usability Expected from an iPhone.
Image quality still not on par with even entry-level dedicated digital cameras.
Still no user control over shutter speed.
Poor social-networking integration.
Same design to the outgoing model.
Gets warm in the hand after extended usage.
Not the most drop-friendly smartphone available.
Siri doesn't understand local names well.
Limited codec support.
Siri is not practical.
No FM Radio.
No file sharing over Bluetooth.
No mass storage mode.
Outdated contacts menu
On-screen keyboard is quite small.
Placement of the lens takes some getting used to.
No manual control of ISO and White Balance.
A larger, dedicated shutter button would be nice.
ICloud data sync costs after a miserly 5GB.

The camera in the Apple iPhone 4S is not a huge leap forward from the previous model, but it is an improvement in many ways. One of the biggest additions, however, actually comes from the upgrade to Apple's iOS 5x, which has added a number of...-

Yes, I am one of those crazy, semi-hypocritical converts who is now touting the virtues of the iPhone as a usable camera. I didn’t start out this way (note the semi-hypocritical part). But after being gifted such a phone/camera/GPS/game console, I...-

gadgets I’ve been fiddling around with the HTC One S for a few days now, and I have to say it’s stolen a little piece of my heart. The hardware is just about perfect, with a 4.3-inch qHD display and a slender aluminum unibody shell, and software like...-

Long story short you can't go wrong with these two handsets – they perform very well and look good in the process. The iPhone 4S has this halo of an Apple product that is hard to beat for the guy on the street, but about the only area that the HTC...-

This was it, shutterbugs. Apparently we don't have an ultimate camera phone here, but even if we had one, it wouldn't have been the new HTC One X. The handset did arrive with a very fast ImageSense camera, which made photo-taking very intuitive...-

In almost all situations, the iPhone 4S edges ahead of Sony's Xperia S camera, with more true-to-life colours, better exposure and focus, and less noise lurking in the shadows. The Xperia S camera is respectable though. It's certainly capable of...-

Here’s the deal people. We’re well aware that the iPhone 4S is a venerable smartphone that’s sure to continue with success, as it has done so in the past countless times, but this latest version doesn’t quite have the same level of fresh appeal found...-
