iPhone 4S

Would put up a picture, but they say it looks exactly the same, so why bother eh?

My views (based on info from

HSDPA, 14.4 Mbps; HSUPA, 5.8 Mbps - It's good that the handset CAN support a higher speed. Now.. will the mobile networks shell out a better speed? This is dependent on the network and NOT on the device.

You get this and use it over a shitty network - you won't really notice any difference now would you? Just saying.

Bluetooth v4.0 with A2DP - Not really sure what 4.0 has different from 2.1 (Yes, there are a lot of things I don't know about).

8 MP Camera with Face Detection - So a better camera is a strong point for getting the NEW phone? Seriously, if anyone thinks that the camera is such an important factor in determining the choice of handset - they should be buying themselves a digital camera.

CPU seems better - 1 GHz dual-core ARM Cortex-A9 processor, PowerVR SGX543MP2 GPU, Apple A5 chipset

The OS is upgraded - Hopefully should help with the (pathetic) battery life. But.. with a better processor - not convinced that the difference will be much.

Siri natural language commands and dictation - They want to call it a PERSONAL ASSISTANT. It basically recognises voice commands (over simplifying, I guess). Speech to Text stuff etc. Couldn't they just make an APP for THAT?

Battery - Same Battery. As per GSM Arena - the same performance. So if there were any improvements in the performance (as a result of iOS 5) it's been negated by the better processor and the battery performance remains the same (as I had deduced earlier in this post).
