rickp315's review of the Apple iPhone 4S

original version, submitted Jan 24, 2014, 1:44 AM:

Nice phone

I'm seeing ads on TV about how people are getting off the iPhone bandwagon. Not standing in line for a phone, settling for the newest Droid device. But has anyone ever wondered why there are lines to buy iPhones? I do not see people forming lines for the latest offerings from other smart phone manufacturers. Why? Because Apple offers a device with solid features, amazing innovations, and just making cool devices. Sure Droid based devices sell more than iPhones. But the Droid OS is offered by at least 4 phone companies, LG, HTC, Samsung, and Motorola. Those are the ones I know of. There may be others.

The iPhone 4S is my first Apple phone, and I couldn't be happier. It's built solidly (I have mine in an Otterbox case), the technology is amazing, and the ease of use is top notch. Siri is very cool. While she's not perfect, it's taken voice command to the next level. The App Store is absolutely huge. If you have a need, no doubt there will be an app for it. Is this a perfect device? No. But name one device that is totally flawless. It's all based on user experience/satisfaction. This goes with ANY smart phone device. For instance, I wished Google Maps offered turn by turn voice guidance, but it doesn't. My dedicated car GPS has that feature, and it does a better job than ANY smart phone I've seen. iBooks is nice too, but the screen is not big enough to do any serious reading with. But this also true with other devices of similar screen size. Get a tablet, or dedicated reader. I know my middle aged eyes work better with larger screens for reading.

Overall, I'm super pleased with this phone. It does far more than any other device I've ever owned. Give this phone serious consideration. You just may like it.
