Aww! No WOW! Deception! The least we can say is that people and the press are not very kind to Apple and its new iPhone 4S, unveiled yesterday, Tuesday, Oct. 4.
A simple search with the tag # iphone4 on Twitter proves it: reactions are at best mixed. Bitterness that has even won the stock market following the announcement, Apple’s stock has somewhat unscrewed.
iPhone No5, a conference without Steve Jobs, his replacement Tim Cook did not really convince Apple fans.
The reasons for this deception are more than numerous. The Wall Street Journal explains that, “Despite the improvement of internal components and new software features, the iPhone 4S physically resembles its predecessor and does not provide leap in capabilities. Most of its functions are already available on mobile competitors. “
Before detailing the comments of analysts, we all agree that the iPhone is not up to the expectations of users. The people at Bloomberg said that by this Christmas, Apple will have to prove that the new insides of Apple iPhone 4S counts and not the aesthetics of the device.
Evidence of mild discomfort.
Even some advocates of the Cupertino based company, as John Gruber, were particularly quiet after the iPhone 4S press conference . We cannot say the same thing for the traditional opponents of Apple, like journalist Paul Thurott, who has not stopped the jokes during the presentation, especially on Twitter.
Same look, different specs inside.
The technical features of the new iPhone 4S from the base of the old iPhone 4 are not that different. On the front there is the same 3.5-inch Retina Display, with an 960 × 640 pixels IPS multitouch pannel, the front camera is only VGA and will take advantage of FaceTime.
iPhone 4S has the same Wi-Fi 802.11b/g/n single-band support and a size of 115.2 × 9.3 × 58.6 mm, weighing 137 grams. The Apple A5 dual core processor is coupled with an internal memoryof 64GB. With this we can say that the raw processing power of the iPhone 4s increases compared to the fourth model.
The camera switches to 8-megapixel with autofocus, flash and sound recording HD. Apple completes the picture with the GPS and Bluetooth technology, both with updated versions.
