The Apple Iphone 4S is a phone whose design is very similar to the iphone 4. This handset was launched in June 2012 though most people were expecting the launch of the iphone 5. As with all high expectations, the release did not augur well with the users as they expected the previously announced iphone 5. One of the complaints was that the phone did not have 4G capabilities as was much anticipated. In essence, the iphone 4S brought in several improvements to an already good device. These improvements included a much improved camera, a dual core processor with more speed, a 64GB version of the iphone 4, and a personal assistant cum gofer. This changes saw Sprint join the Apple family. The phone boasts all the benefits of the iOS 5 along with its faster processor. Another changes that makes this handset differ from the iphone 4 is the dual band aerial design. While the right side of the handset has not buttons, it is this side that contains the micro SD card slot. This slot pops out to allow access and can be opened using the built-in gizmo or a pin. The base region of iphone has dual speakers. These dual speakers offer very good sound also houses the apple connector. The left side houses the volume buttons as well as the camera cover up key.
