One word. Disappointed. I was looking forward to seeing a very new model, probably supposed to be called iPhone 5. A bigger screen perhaps. But no, they released an iPhone 4 with an ‘S’ with the same screen size. While the 8mp camera as well as its processor should keep itself on par with its Android competitors, I was hoping they would release a new model that features a bigger screen.
And there is also the issue of how much RAM it will have. Since they did not even mention it in their website, I am going with 512MB. But who knows, I hope I am wrong. If it will be 1GB, then I might just buy one for my wife. Of course I may borrow it from time to time because I plan to start coding for iOS.
And then, there is the much hyped Siri. It could be revolutionary, it could be not. I won’t be using that for sure since I do not like using the voice feature.
Again, I expected too much. Considering that just a few days before the iPhone 4S’ release, their invitation said “Let’s Talk iPhone”. Can’t be blamed for expecting too much just from that phrase.
I believe Samsung and HTC pose the biggest threats to Apple’s dominance I think Apple should stop with the ‘S’ model release every other year. The Samsung Galaxy S3 looks to be even better than this year’s S2 so Apple should step up their game.
I might, just might get an iPhone 4S provided that the RAM is 1GB. That, at least should last me many years even with many OS updates and increased requirements from upcoming future games.
