Wonderful

The iPhone 4S is still a great phone for those not looking to spend as much on an iPhone 5.

Although the iPhone 4S is not the newest phone on the block, It’s still a great phone available at a great price!

Design

The first thing you’ll notice about the iPhone 4S Only $199 is that the design hasn’t changed since the iPhone 4. It has the sleek glass finish, the same 3.5 inch screen, the same weight and the same 960×640 resolution. Some may be disappointed that these specs haven’t improved.

Camera

The camera has been improved to 8MP, which brings it up to date with some of the top smartphones currently on the market. It’s a noticeable upgrade from the 5MP camera of the iPhone 4, and it can now record video in 1080p.

Processor

A processor upgrade is always nice to see, as it means that apps and games run a lot faster. The iPhone 4S 16GB makes use of a dual-core 1GHz processor, the same Apple A5 chip as the iPad 2. The RAM has also been upgraded to 1GB.

iOS 6

Buying the iPhone 4S isn’t the only way you’ll be able to experience iOS 6 – this operating system will also be made available to owners of older iPhones, iPod Touches and the iPad. Some of the key improvements include a less intrusive notification system, an app that allows iPhone users to message each other for free iMessage, the ability to own an iPhone without needing to connect it up to a computer, and access to Apple’s iCloud that’ll keep photos, music and multimedia in sync between devices.

Battery Life

The iPhone 4S comes with 8 hours battery life using 3G to talk. This is an improvement but a very minor one over the 7 hours of the iPhone 4.

Siri Voice Recognition

This is the upgrade that Apple were emphasizing the most: users can control the iPhone 4S with natural voice commands. This isn’t just for basic menu items, though: you can use it to compose a text message, or ask your phone to give you directions to the nearest Chinese restaurant.

Is The iPhone 4S 16GB Really Worth Buying?

The features such as the dual-core processor and voice recognition system are enough to get many excited about the phone again. If you have an old iPhone, however, then you may want to wait a while and just take advantage of the iOS 6 upgrade instead.

The iPhone 4S is still a great phone for those not looking to spend as much on an iPhone 5.

iPhone 4S 16GB iPhone 4S 16GBiPhone 4S has an 8-megapixel iSight camera with panorama, the A5 chip, iOS 6, and iCloud. And it comes with Siri-the intelligent assistant that lets you use your voice to get things done.

Most people are looking to upgrade the phone while downgrade on what they are paying. I know many people who are looking at phones that are 50-100/month because they are just tried of paying insane rates. I think if it works for what you need, get it.

Thanks for the info. I've been debating whether to get the iPhone 4S now that the price has dropped so dramatically, or pony up the big bucks for the iPhone 5. This will help.

Is that really and truly the price for the phone? Or does it also mean you have to sign up for a 3 year contract? I love all things Apple. If it is only $99, I have to have it!

I don't think I''ll be getting an iPhone anytime soon, between my iPad 3 and iPhone 4, I'm pretty much set for the time being.
