I do not like my web browsing experience with the 4s. I have tried 7 browsers and none of them are what I want. If I set them to go to the desktop web page, they display the entire web page as it would appear on a desk top. When I use Dolphin browser on my android and go to desk top, it does not try to place the entire page on the screen; I have to swipe left and right to see parts of the page, and I can actually read from that format.
Most of the browsers go to the m.xxxx.com pages even when set for desktop.
Everything else about the phone I love. It is actually the best telephone I have ever had. I do not want a telephone, I want a handheld computer. That is just me.

I thought that I had seen somewhere that the primary reason for the screen being 3.5" is ease of one-handed use. That 3.5" inch is just about the right size to be able to reach all corners with your thumb while holding in that hand. While I agree, I got used to the larger screen on the Evo and then the even larger screen on the Galaxy S II and miss it. The phone was a little larger, but also thinner and weighed 25% less. I really didn't find it that cumbersome. That said however, there are a lot of things I prefer with iOS. All and all I'm happy with the 4S. After switching and getting used to android with the Evo 4G and Samsung Galaxy S II, and having previously owned the original iPhone, the 3G and the 3GS, I wasn't expecting to be blown away by the 4S. I am pleasantly surprised by how much I like the phone.

No, I'm bailing back to Android. Why?
A recent informal study showed that 70% of hot young women are more turned on by a buggy, laggy, memory leak hobbled Android OS than the iPhone, which is pretty and just works.
Kidding. I'm still extremely happy with my iPhone and Siri is AWESOME!!!

Really like the 4s. One thing I really appreciate in addition to the better camera, Siri, and increased speed, is that the antenna problem seems to be fixed. My iPhone 4 suffered badly from the "hold it wrong and the bars drop" feature. Glad to see this is gone on my 4s.

I came from a BlackBerry Bold 9700. I thought I'd miss the keyboard, because I was able to type without looking fairly accurately and the feel of the Bold keyboard was phenomenal, but I was quite surprised when I could almost do the same with the touch keyboard. The iPhone keyboard is a lot better than I expected.
After using this phone for over a week now, the only thing I miss is the notification LED. Other than that, this phone is works flawlessly and looks stunning! I just wish my Yahoo! mail would push like it did on my BlackBerry.

A little mixed if its worth it over the 4... Its definitly better though! I love the 4 formfactor and dont really see me switching if they redesign the 5.. So i opted for a beefed up 4S! Speed is nicee! Dont know if i notice thaaaat much but it iss noticeable and thats my main reason for upgrading... The thing i find most interesting is the my 4S screen is actually brighter than my 4! I was doin a comparison flr the yellowtint and while i notice my phone has a slightt tint.. Ive noticed that its actually brighter than 2 other iphones ive compared it too! Pluss the batter life on this phone is actually killing my 4!

I really do love this phone. I am coming from a Blackberry Curve 8530, so almost everything is a huge improvement from that. The Camera will be replacing my point and shoot (which I stopped taking with me the last few months), the video quality is great, and the speed is awesome! The only thing I found irritating was the Enable 3G toggle being gone, since I am around wifi all day, but now that I have had my phone for a few days the battery life is getting better, which was the main reason I wanted to use EDGE. Overall, very happy with my purchase!
