Now the phone looks a lot like this, the iPhone 4 and we know from your feedback that plenty of you were hoping for something more design wise, but really its biggest improvements are under the hood. Now, the iPhone 4S is loaded with an A5 dual core processor, which Apple plans as twice the power and 7 times faster graphics for gaming while also improving talk time battery life by an hour. So, we'll see how it fares in our lab test. The 4S also improves as one of the best Smartphone cameras in the market with an 8-megapixel camera that now should stand ADP video. They've also made improvements to the intended design and the phone has faster mobile data speeds with HSDPA compatibility.
