- The dual core A5 chip that can now handle fast web browsing, graphic intensive apps, and extended battery life along with multitasking.
- iOS 5 operating system that has efficient power management for outstanding battery life, reminders and notification center etc.
- Siri voice activation - This is the eye catching feature for most of the customers as Siri is like the personal assistant that guides you for whatever questions you have. It understands speech and responds accordingly. It is integrated with location services and built in apps. It can make calls, send texts, set alarm/reminder and much more. Siri understands most of the english accents spoken world wide. However, local accent(place where you live currently) is the one that works just fine.
- 8.0MP camera - This is a bumped up camera version compared to iphone 4. It has advanced optics, advanced hybrid filter, increased sensitivity and face detection etc.
- 16GB/32GB internal memory - iphone 4s comes with these extended memory options compared to the older ones that came with basic 8GB storage. In addition to this you can subscribe for the iCloud storage to store music, photos and documents.
- It gives upto 14 hours of talk time with 200hours of standby time. This is a huge improvement for a smart phone.
- Dual antennas - It has dual antennas for both GSM and CDMA support and this makes it a world phone.
After seeing these features one would definitely tempt to go and buy iPhone 4s however there is more. Lets see the features of Motorola Atrix 2 that also came into the US market on 16th october, 2011.
