iPhone 3G has . a different shape . the ability to download apps . better Safari and . is cheaper . is more user friendly . comes in 2 colors . is faster.
The 4s just means it is the fourth generation of the iphones. The "S" on the 4s just simply means siri which is the new technology on the iphone. It is like the phone helping service.
\nMain difference is App store access. The only thing NOT different is the shell design, everything else is worlds apart. \n. \nTekjive
not much other than the OSI is much faster and the camera has video recording and that's pretty much it
Honestly everything. Better screen, camera, looks, and speed. There r many things neat like the special chip in the 4s and siri, the lady that talks to u when holding down the big home button. The only not so good thing is the price which can be a bit high for some people. But otherwise its very wor…thit if ur looking towards an upgrade, and if u already have an iphone 3gs and ur looking towards an upgrade to the 4s, then it is still easy and simple to use (pretty much the exact same program) trust me i have an iphone 4s (infact im telling u all this using it right now :P) and it is superior over all other phones in my opinion!

With every new smartphone on the market there are the usual differences, because Apple on release a new iPhone roughly on a yearly time scale, you will notice huge difference between some of the iPhones than others. With the 4 and the 4S you will not notice a hardware difference, the two both look v…ery alike, you will only notice the difference if you look at the antenna band around the side of the iPhones, the 4S has four small black lines splitting the band, the 4 on the other hand doesn't have these lines. When the iPhone 4 was released there was a large public outcry because when you held the phone a certain way in your hand the signal would gradually drop until your signal had gone completely. At that time Steve Jobs was the CEO of the company and he held a conference with a large crowd of journalists from newspapers and news Tv companies. At the conference he spoke about various other smartphones brands (Blackberry, HTC, Sony Ericsson, Samsung) and showed how their phones all had the same issue. His solution was to put a iPhone bumped around the phone and gave everyone with the iPhone 4 a free bumper, he also offered full refund within the refund policy. On the NEW iPhone 4S you will notice that the phone does not have these problems as it has been fixed. The iPhone 4S also comes in the 64GB of memory option unlike the iPhone 4, this comes at a cost though. The new iPhone also has a faster processor, 3 more megapixels than its predecessor (it has an 8 megapixel camera) with better optics and you can record 1080p videos. The iPhone 4S also comes with Siri, Apples voice recognition service, it allows you to ask the phone questions and then responds by giving you an answer, there is a limited amount of questions you can ask though and if you do not speak clearly then it will not understand you. Depending on where you live Siri will be better in some places than others, i.e. It can locate businesses and places in the US, but does not offer various other countries location information through Siri. There are other small differences which make the phone better, as I say the hardware/physical attributes of the phone have stayed the same, to the eye they look pretty much the exact same unless you examine them beside one another. The 4S is lighter in weight than the iPhone 4. If your thinking of buying one then you should go for the 4S, because overall it is the better phone. (MORE)
A i phone 5 is better because it has a built in siri and it has a slightly better screen and it is also lighter
Well first of all its called the iphone 4s and the differences are they upgrades the CPU to a dual-core A5 which is found in the Ipad. also a 8 mega pixel camera and also its 1080p video, they have upgraded their antennas for better call quality and download and upload speed. Also added better featu…re to IOS such as siri. It is not a 4g phone but it can compare with most top 4g phones out today. (MORE)
Double the processor power, 7 times the graphics, Siri Artificial intelligent assistance, 8Mpx Camera and video recording at 1080p as far as I can tell.
Original answer by WhiteDoves Edited by Tristan Howell Answer 1: Yes. The iPhone 4S is the fifth generation of the iPhone product,but it is not called "iPhone 5". Answer 2: No, iPhone 4S is the improved version of the iPhone 4. The onlydifference between the iPhone 4 and the iPhone 4S is the inter…nalsand Siri, Apple's personal assistant. Many people were disappointeddue to the fact that they thought it would be named iPhone 5. It isthe fifth generation of the iPhone product, but Apple has decidednot to name it iPhone 5. (MORE)
No, they are two different iPhones. THe 4S is the slightly older,thicker, shorter, 2011 edition of the iPhone which you can stillbuy at Apple for $99 while the iPhone 5 is currently the latestiPhone.
The iPhone 4S and the iPhone 5 are two different products. Each apple iPhone comes in different levels, like economy and luxury. The iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S are essentially the same phone, but the 4S has more features (like Siri and a higher pixel camera). The iPhone 5 comes in three level, …the 5C (economy), 5 (standard), and 5S (luxury). (MORE)

the network it came out on first was vodafone. all the new phones nearly always come out on vodafone first before any other network. why, i dont know
Original Answer by Answerittt Edited by Arianna Lovendino The iPhone 4S has Siri as well as the 5 operating system.
The real difference of the iPhone 4 and 4S is the Siri (Beta) and the 8 megapixel camera also it includes the powerful Apple A5 chip that is used for the iPad 2 which can bring a faster browsing on Safari also the Weight for the 4S has increased to 4.9 ounces (140 grams) when the 4 had 4.8 ounces (1…37 grams). The 4S has the 1080p 30fps improved HD video recording, Bluetooth 4.0, UMTS/HSDPA/HSUPA GSM/EDGE CDMA EV-DO Rev. A2 (mean it's a world phone), and Wi-Fi 802.11b/g/n The Talk time is up to 8 hours on 3G Up to 14 hours on 2G (GSM) but the Standby time: Up to 200 hours when the 4 had up to 300 hours so the inside has improved so it's hard to tell the difference but I recommend that maybe the iPhone 5 which should come out probably this year is better than both the 4 and the 4S (MORE)
There is no such thing yet. There may never be if Cook calles the next iPhone the new iPhone.
Technically, when you say iPhone, you are refferrring to the 2g which is not longer sold in stores. If you were asking about the 4 and 4S, then here are some new features the 4 does not have. . twice as fast A5 processor that never crashes with iOS 5 . Siri (English, French, German, and Japanese …so far) . 8mp back facing camera (compared to 5mp) . 1080p video (compared to 720p) . video stabilization . two antennas for better connectivity (MORE)
The iPhone 4S has Siri built into it the mobile that will speak to you, whereas earlier versions do not have this feature. Ask Siri to list your appointments for the next hour and you will hear your appointments being read aloud by the handset.

The iPhone 3GS came out more than 2 years before the 4S, between that time there has also been the iPhone 4. There is a difference in the basic things, like the memory has became bigger, available now is a 64GB memory, in the past 64GB was not an available option. There is also the processor, the pr…ocessor will be upgraded to a brand new, faster and overall better processor. With every new product that comes out, the camera the camera will be bumped up to have higher megapixels and better optics. The iPhone 3GS was replaced with the iPhone 4, the iPhone 4 had a complete redesign, instead of using plastic Apple decided to go with glass and construct a steel band around the edge of the phone. The iPhone 3GS screen was a LCD capacitive touchscreen, on the iPhone 4 the screen changed to become the first Retina display on a smartphone. The steel band around the edge of the iPhone 4, held the glass together and it made it look like the sexiest phone around. But it was flawed with antenna issues, the antenna would not work properly if the phone was held a certain way. Ofcourse everyone complained and there was a huge uproar about this at the time, but the CEO at that time, Steve Jobs, his solution was to give away free bumpers for the phone or return it. He held a conference about the issue because of the global outcry of antenna problems, he then showed a presentation styled keynote of other phones form various different brands which had similar problems and pointed them out. Apple did a great job with the design of the iPhone 4, but with putting so much effort into the design and physical attributes to the iPhone 4, they overlooked other aspect of the phone. In 2011 the iPhone 4 was replaced by the iPhone 4S, which had better camera, memory, processor and camera. Steve Jobs died a few days after the release of the phone. The iPhone 4S has no antenna problems, this time they have made sure that there is no problems with any aspect of the phone. The 3GS also never had a front facing camera, meaning you could not video call, with the iPhone 4 Apple introduced a front facing camera, which allows the use of Apples own Skype-like service which they aptly named FaceTime. FaceTime is just like Skype, it is only compatible with Apple products unlike Skype, which can be used with Mac, PC, iPhone, Android, etc... Apple also introduced Siri, a voice recognition system, which allows the user of the phone to ask questions to the phone when pressing the HOME button, unlike other smartphone operating systems Siri allows you to talk to the iPhone and it comes up with answers. There is only so many questions you can ask it, depending on where you live there are some services that some people living in the US will get that other countries will not get. And there is the fact that Siri is still a working progress, over time it will get better. The iPhone 4S is currently the latest iPhone to be released. Speculation is constantly going on about when the next iPhone will be released, some say this summer, others say it will not be until the winter. There is no one that will be able to tell you because Apple are tight lipped when it comes to releasing new products. But the iPhone 4S is a brilliant phone, if you are thinking of getting it then you should, it is worth the money. (MORE)
The iPhone 4S is a phone that is able to make calls, send and receive text messages, use the internet, use third party applications, such as Instagram and Words with Friends, set reminders, write notes, add meetings/calendar appointments, use Siri and voice dictation, etc.
Yes you can. You need to check with your service provider to ensure that you have international roaming activated on your service. You need to note that using your handset in any other country apart from your home country can be extremely expensive. If your travelling and want to use your handset ab…road, ask your network provider to put a daily spending limit on your service, in order that you don't over spend. Using data is very expensive, that should be avoided. If local wifi is available use that instead, most hotels usually provide free wifi to their guests. If you are on a PAYG handset, it is best to buy minutes, texts and data in advance. See what extra packages are available from your provider as these are normally good value for money compared to not using them. (MORE)
The main difference is that the iPhone 4S has Siri who you can talk to and it answers your questions. There are also some minor technical differences. But besides that, they're pretty much the same.
If u r in need for a phone right now, its a good idea to get it, but if u r in no rush and u feel like waiting a year or so then ya :)

Main three things are a faster A6 chip, A half inch larger screen, and a new charger.

Well probably 4s has 3.5 inch Screen Whereas 5 has 4.0 Inch SCreen 4s has A5 processor Whereas 5 has 16 processor!
The iPhone 4 is slimmer and smaller and the camera is smaller... The iPhone 5 is very wide with a bigger screen and a way bigger screen
The iPhone 5 has the serie like the iPhone 4S, but the iPhone 5 has a way bigger screen, and cheeper app prices. So i think the iPhone 5 is better
the iphone5 has a bigger screen, the camera is panorama which means that the camera lasts longer so when you take a picture it gos until you want the camera to take thye picture and it will show you fully.
No. iPhone 5: Height: 123.8 mm Width: 58.6 mm Depth:7.6 mm iPhone 4: Height: 115.2 mm Width: 58.6 mm Depth: 9.3 mm
Yes, it comes with I think every model of an iPhone ever made. So an iPhone 4S, definitely!
no.. iPhone 4s and below uses Micro Sim, and the iPhone 5 uses Nono Sim that is smaller..
There are a number of key differences between the iPhone 5 and the iPhone 4S. The most obvious difference is the size of the phone. The iPhones 5 is thinner than the 4S as well as having a longer screen. The iPhone 5 has faster processing capabilities, meaning apps run smoother and the phone is more… responsive. The iPhone 5 is the first Apple device to use 4G internet browsing. Web sites load quicker and apps download at lightening speed. Finally the iPhone 5 is made from Guerilla glass, meaning it is much stronger than previous iPhone models and the screen should not scratch. (MORE)
Yes, currently Apple has made the docking stations compatible with the 4S and 5 IPhones.
Well obviously the newer the iPhone, the better it is considering Apple does not make phones that specialize in any one field. But to make it easier for you to see the difference, I will make a quick bullet list of comparisons. What the iPhone 4S has that the 4 does not: . 8 megapixel camera …(as opposed to 5 megapixel on the 4) . 1080p video recording (as opposed to 720p) . camera face detection . video stabilization . FaceTime over cellular . Siri the multilingual digital assistant . an A5 processor (less lags and crashes) . fingerprint resistant screen . dual antennas . fast enough connection speeds to be considered 4G by AT&T . GPS/GLONASS support (opposed to just GPS) . bluetooth 4.0 support . longer battery life in general What the iPhone 5 has that the 4S does not: . taller 4in. diagonal screen (opposed to 3.5in.) . about an once lighter than 4S (lightest iPhone ever actually) . 4G LTE speeds . new reversible lightning charging connector . faster A6 processor . faster 5Gz Wi-Fi if you have an 802.11n router (opposed to 2.4Gz) . smaller lighter Nano-SIM . better low light support in camera . 1.2 megapixel fron facing camera (opposed to the horrible VGA on 4S) . 720p video on front facing camera (opposed to VGA) . backside illumination sensor . better video stabilization than 4S . take still photos while recording video . face detection while recording video . comes with Apple's new EarPods instead of regular headphones . slightly longer battery life in standby and browsing times (MORE)
No. Considering Apple does not make iPhones that specailize in anyone task, every iPhone each year generally outdoes the other, thusthe older phone model becomes cheaper.
Can apple upgrade your iPhone 4s to iPhone 5 for free if your having a lot of problems with iPhone 4s?
No, they will however fix or replace it if you're under warrenty.Depending on your carrier however, you may get a discount toupgrade to the Iphone 5 if it can't be fixed. I know AT&T willgive a discount if it's broken, not sure about if you're justhaving problems. I also don't know what other carrie…rs will do. (MORE)

The iPhone 5 is actually older than the 5C, but in terms of design and power, it still is better that the C. The iPhone 5 is made of metal, where as the C is just polycarbonate plastic.
A key difference between an iPhone 5C and an iPhone 5 is thesupport for more 4G LTE frequency bands by iPhone 5C.
An iPhone 5c is 0.7 ounces heavier than an iPhone 5. The 5c comesin green, yellow, pink, blue and white while the 5 only comes inblack and white. The 5c has a better battery.
