I'm so glad I made this purchase.. I craigslisted a 32GB white one for AT&T and couldn't be more excited. This is coming from someone who had an iPhone 4 before also. It is just an amazing phone! It's great to finally have that dictation feature for texting, and a much more accurate camera (my reason for upgrading). Definitely worth it.
Yeah this iPhone is pretty much amazing. People get hung up on the case and say that it is not a new phone. But if you look under the hood and combine that with new software and better hardware it is a NEW iPhone. No one complains that the BMW M3 has looked the same for the last few years. What something is iconic and already has an amazing design why not keep using it.
Got mine Fri and then headed to the mall to get a Zagg protector put on. Finally activated it today. Did it thru icloud with my old iphone 4 backup. It is still loading up some of the apps but overall everything got restored and it even kept the folders I had made for the apps. I had some trouble with siri at times with in not responding. I did find out it wont read e mails since i asked it. It will tell me how many i have and show them but says cant read them. Was able to send text and e mail with it. THere is an app that I had found that will read your mail as well as calender, and news feeds. Its called voice brief. Overall like the update.
I'm thrilled with my purchase. It just feels so much faster than my iPhone 4. The camera is amazing. And Siri is fantastic. Plus i went from a black 32gb to a white 64gb. The extra storage is so nice to have.
Mmmmm.... still deciding. Love Apple and apple products, and this is my 4th iPhone... upgraded to 4s mainly for Siri which isnt blowing me away yet but i am reserving judgement for now as i am sure the servers are getting hammered.
I am on the fence. I thought the phone browser had tabbed browser, but that is for the iPad. I miss the app drawer concept of Android. I can not find Reader, on any web page, and Apple says,"You can open the Camera app right from the Lock screen", I do not have the Camera icon on my lock screen.
I will mess with it/study it then make up my mind.
Really like the iMessage app.
I can not find my pictures on my computer, Apple site says, "C:\Users\Apple\Pictures\Photo Stream\My Photo Stream", but it is not on my computer.
To use the camera from the lock screen you have to double tap the home button and it will appear. The "reader" function for web pages appears in the address bar when you click on a link to a story. It is a really sweet feature.
Very pleased. I was skeptical at first, but this outshines my i4. I'm most impressed with the speed and smoothness. The camera is awesome. I told my son and he didn't believe me, so we both took a pic of a plant on the coffee table, he with his i4, me with mine. There was no comparison, mine was so much clearer and defined. I love the notifications in iOS5, and Siri is too cool.
Yes, I'm happy. I kept the iPhone 3Gs and skipped the 4, so this is a pretty drastic upgrade for me. The speed is much better, both in terms of processing and 3G performance. The screen is nice, but seems a bit more difficult to read outdoors than the 3Gs.
The camera is a huge improvement over the 3Gs, both for stills and HD video recording. I bumped up to 64GB on this one, so I'll have room for HD video.
Siri is mostly for fun right now, but I'm slowly learning how to integrate it into my workflow. I played with dictation to reply to messages & Facebook. It does very well learning words, though I need to know if I can get it to include punctuation.
Happy? ABSOLUTELY! Not counting the mistaken delivery of my new iP4S, to someone else by UPS, resulting in a delivery delay. I've been using a 4th Gen iPod Touch for about a year, so the learning curve was more of a flat one, for me, with this, my first smart phone. So far, battery life is probably going to be 48 to 72 hours, as I'm trying to watch my 2 gig data plan and using 3G minimally, at least for the first month. Most places I visit have wifi, anyway. So, no complaints for now.
