Apple iPhone 4STo sum it all up, the Apple iPhone 4S is one of the best phones out in the market today, with a massive variety of apps and third-party developer support, a familiar industrial design that still works, and improved hardware to a year-old phone that was already great.

Now the big debate is if it is worth upgrading to if you are a current iPhone 4 owner. This is a tough question to answer because aside from Siri, there really isn’t anything revolutionary about the iPhone 4S. And if you are an iPad 2 owner, you are already familiar with the capabilities of the A5 chip and the gaming experience is better on the tablet’s larger screen.

In the practical sense, the overall speed increase and better camera is welcome but the iPhone 4 can handle iOS 5/Apps, as well as take good photos already. Unless you really need all these improvements and Siri, you can survive another year with the iPhone 4 instead of paying more for the early upgrade to the 4S.

Now if you are coming from a 3GS or below or are tired of Windows Mobile and Android, this is definitely the phone to get.

If you can afford it and want the latest and greatest, you won’t be disappointed with what the iPhone 4S has to offer.
