I think some people may feel disappointed as Apple didn’t push out iPhone5,they only show iPhone 4s on the stage which is merely an upgraded version of iPhone 4.They are twins actually,they have exactly the same appearance.
Well,for those who want to get an iPhone but not yet owned,iPhone 4S still has the merits.Engadget has made a group of comparisons for us.
The latest iOS 5 will be publicly released on next Wednesday-12 October 2011 with more than 200 new features and enhancements.The cutting-edge feature in this new iOS is called Siri which is the most advanced voice control technology.It can understand human language accurately and responsibly.That’s so great,but unfortunately this feature may only be supported in iPhone 4S.
Currently the prices of iPhone 4 have been dropped in some countries.If you wanna save pocket,you might just get the old iPhone 4 as it’s been quite good.If you wanna get a faster and more powerful one,iPhone 4S fits your need.
Well,when we look at this question,I think we should look at the advantages of iPad 2 first.
1.a faster CPU and GPU.
It could let you run apps much smoothly and surely get better gaming experience.However,according to the users of original iPad,most of apps could run quickly,at least reaching their expects.However,a better GPU is a great point as many iPad users complain that the performance on the current one is too weak.
2.a sharper screen.
Although the resolution of iPad and iPad 2 are the same,1024*768 pixels.However,in the latter model,it could support 132ppi,meaning that you will have a more detailed display,especially when you’re enjoying those HD videos or high quality photos.
In iPad 2,Apple finally brings camera function in.In fact,it’s not a new idea,but it’s new on iPad.The front camera could be used for Facetime,a video communication tool in iOS and the back camera could shoot 720p HD video in 30 frames/sec or make photos.It’s better than the original one that has no such functions.
4.Smaller size and lighter weight
iPad 2 has lost the belly and weight so that users could carry it more comfortable and convenient.
5.Support 1080p HD play
Compared to the previous one that only support 720p,iPad 2 is able to play 1080p HD video.Thanks the new GPU!
Black and white are in the list,not like the old one that has only one colour.
iPad 2 now supports HDMI output with connecting with the specific cable costing US$39.With it,sharing something in your iPad 2 to others will be easy.That’s pretty nice!And you could try to play games,read articles,doing some work etc. on the bigger screen too.
It’s a new stuff in iPad 2.I thinks developers will know how to use it to create more interesting apps to attract potential customers.
That’s my two cents.Well,it may not be complete,but I think it could be your reference when you make decision-whether it’s worth buying it or not. Consumers are always smart,aren’t they?
