The results are in and not only is the Apple iPhone 4S a Best Buy – it’s the best phone we have ever tested.
Scoring a mighty 85% the iPhone 4S beats the iPhone 4 to the top of the pile, plus – as Apple has now fixed the antenna issue that bugged the previous version – it also gets itself a Which? Best Buy award.
Our rigorous lab tests found that the updated camera performed brilliantly, scoring five stars for picture quality, ease of use, features and display quality. Video recording and playback also got top marks.
The iPhone 4S picked up maximum points for using the internet thanks to its improved battery life and also performed well as a phone as it’s so simple to use.
The only downside we could find was that the quality of the music player actually dropped between the iPhone 4 and the 4S – with the supplied headphones being of slightly lower quality than those bundled with the older model.
Despite this it is still a fantastic device – after all you can always replace the headphones – and that’s before you take into account the personal assistant feature Siri.
We were impressed with how well Siri works, although the lack of UK information does make it frustrating and we’re still not convinced how much people will use it in everyday life.
