iPhone 4S, the most amazing iPhone yet, is packed with new features like Apple’s dual-core A5 chip for even more power, an advanced and faster 8 megapixel camera with all-new optics and full HD 1080p video recording, and Siri, an intelligent assistant that helps you get things done just by asking.

You’ll do everyday things in extraordinary ways on iPhone 4S. Take amazing photos and shoot HD video. See your friends and family with FaceTime. Browse the web on the Retina display. Check email. Send messages. Set reminders. Check calendars. Or just ask Siri to help you get things done — it figures out the right apps to use.

iPhone 4S also ships with iOS 5 — the world’s most advanced mobile operating system, with over 200 new features — and iCloud. iCloud stores your music, photos, documents, and more and wirelessly pushes them to all your devices. Automatic, effortless, and seamless — with iCloud, whatever’s on your iPhone 4S is automatically on your other devices, too.

  • newegg Siri, an intelligent assistant Now you can use your voice to use your iPhone. Just talk to Siri as you would to a person: “Do I need an umbrella?” or “Any great burgers around here?” or “Where’s the closest ATM?” Siri not only understands what you say, it knows what you mean. It figures out the right apps to use to find the right answer. Then, just like a personal assistant, it answers you. Siri makes phone calls, sends messages, schedules meetings, sets reminders, and more. How much more? Just ask, and Siri tells you that, too.
  • newegg Dual-core A5 chip Two cores in the A5 chip deliver up to two times more power and up to seven times faster graphics. And you’ll feel the effects. Fast. iPhone 4S is quick and responsive, which makes all the difference when you’re launching apps, browsing the web, gaming, and doing just about everything. And no matter what you’re doing, you can keep on doing it. Because the A5 chip is so power-efficient, iPhone 4S has outstanding battery life.
  • newegg The you-can’t-believe-it’s-on-a-phone camera The iPhone 4S camera gives you 8 megapixels -- that’s 60 percent more pixels than the camera on iPhone 4 -- along with a new custom lens with five precision elements, larger f/2.4 aperture and advanced hybrid infrared filter. Not to mention an improved backside illumination sensor, excellent auto white balance, advanced color accuracy, face detection, and reduced motion blur. It all means that no matter how many people, how much light, and how much action you capture, everything looks exactly as it should. And just wait until you see the photos.
  • newegg Video recording in 1080p amazing HD Shoot stunning 1080p HD video everywhere you go. With all-new optics, the light is always right, the color is always vivid, and everything will look even better than you remember. Video stabilization steadies shaky shots. And you can edit video right on iPhone and share your lush life as fast as you shoot.
  • newegg iOS 5, iCloud With every iOS advancement come even easier ways to do everything. That’s what makes iOS years ahead of anything else. iOS 5 leaps even further ahead, bringing over 200 new features to iPhone 4S. iCloud is the easiest way to manage all your stuff, because it manages it all for you. iCloud stores your music, photos, apps, mail, contacts, calendars, documents, and more. And wirelessly pushes them to all your devices. It’s automatic, effortless, and seamless.
  • newegg FaceTime FaceTime lets you hear a voice and see the face that goes with it — iPhone to iPhone, iPad 2, iPod touch, or Mac over Wi-Fi. So no matter where they are, no matter where you are, you’ll always be there. Making a FaceTime call is just as easy as making a phone call. And it’s even easier with Siri. Just tell Siri “FaceTime with Mom” and you show up, smile, and wave hello. You’ll never miss a big event, an important meeting, or a good laugh. And who wouldn’t be happy to see your face?

5 out of 5 eggsNot sure about this price

Pros: It's a great phone. I have it in a speck PixelSkin case, and that keeps it scratch and crack free, even after multiple drops on concrete and other hard surfaces.

Cons: Now that the iPhone 5 is out, it's not an iPhone 5.

Other Thoughts: What's up with the price. It's $100 MORE than what Apple is selling them for, now that the iPhone 5 is out.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: I'm free from the grips of AT&T/Verizon!

Absolutely no limitations on what I can do with this phone. Especially compared to a locked AT&T iPhone. Using this one with T-Mobile. Can tether at will (without a tether plan, just gotta hide my User Agent from T-Mobile, easy as heck.)

Everything except Visual Voicemail works with T-Mobile. Speeds are way faster than AT&T's HSPA+ and even Verizon's LTE. AT&T's joke-of-an-LTE is not even worth mentioning. Whoops, did I mention it?

Cons: Hella expensive (why I took off a star.)

No LTE (T-Mobile's HSPA+ on the 4S is faster than Verizon's LTE anyway.)

iPhone 5 right around the corner (already knew that when I bought this.) Don't care about a slightly longer screen, 4S will get all the iOS 6 features except for taking a picture while recording video. Really? Who cares? I'll just get 5S/6 factory unlocked whenever they come out.

T-Mobile HSPA+ 1900MHz (3G/4G on iPhone) coverage a little spotty. Sometimes get Edge speeds if I travel too far out. T-Mobile is refarming and adding more 1900MHz coverage, they say they'll be very close to complete by the end of the year.

Other Thoughts: Came from an iPhone 4 on AT&T and needless to say, AT&T is just terrible. Bill was high, data speed was low, overages out the a*s, coverage not that great. No longer! Saving lots of money with T-Mo, and now with their unlimited data plans I'm never looking back!
