iPhone 4S: evolution or nevertheless revolution? Something average!
Here the 1st presentation of Apple under control of the new executive director, Tim Cook also ended. Whether she was successful? Unequivocally, it was successful. But after all it would be desirable a little bigger, after all "paliform" iPhone 5 was not announced, and iPod touch only received the white panel. But iPod classic continues to live, and still iPhone got 64 GB a flash memory, but it is smallest of its new features. Let’s have a talk about iPhone 4S and all technical miracles (it not sarcasm!), that he will offer.
At the 1st look exchanged nothing — the ordinary glass-steel case with dimensions of 115,2 x 58,6 x 9,3 mm, the weight is slightly more — 140 g (137 g at the predecessor). But after all differences in appearance are. The aerial in the device is broken into four sectors, instead of on three, as in iPhone 4. The radio module too is updated, at all this is serious. Not enough that peak speed of loading of data (14,4 Mbps, but аплоад the former — 5,8 Mbps) is twice increased, so iPhone still got also simultaneous support of the GSM and CDMA networks (UMTS/HSDPA/HSUPA 850, 900, 1900, 2100 MHz, GSM/EDGE 850, 900, 1800, 1900 MHz, CDMA EV-DO Rev. A 800, 1900 MHz) — a unique case in the industry. Naturally, it is not necessary to expect especially big acceleration of mobile web surfing on iPhone 4S as the Russian cellular networks, well and suppressing the most part global, are not capable to provide peak speed of loading of data in 14,4 Mbps, even about 7,2 Mbps it is not necessary while to speak, but prospects for development are.
Yes, and still phone is capable to be switched hurriedly between 2 aerials for transfer and data acquisition that improves quality of a call. Plus in it is established the module Blyutuz 4.0 differing considerably by improved profitability in comparison with Blyutuz 2.1.
From the radio module we will smoothly pass to the main electronic iPhone 4S component, the processor or more precisely to tell — SoC (system – on – the chip). Any miracles, the history develops on a spiral. As well as last year, new iPhone received "heart" from iPad tablet. And it means pair of computing kernels on the basis of ARM Cortex-A9 and the graphic PowerVR SGX543MP2 accelerator. In other words the novelty twice surpasses iPhone 4 in productivity of the processor and всемеро — a graphic subsystem. At present it is the most high-speed phone on a planet. The near competitor, Galaxy SII, lags behind it on graphic productivity twice, and in turn other competitors lag behind the Korean device in 2-4 times.
Already there is a mass of the games, capable to use power of Apple A5, but on December 1 there will be most real "titan" and "block" of a mobile geyming — Infinity Blade 2, is exclusive for iOS. Here on this product also it will be possible to estimate, on what modern iГаджеты are capable.
Naturally, against such terrible capacities there is a question — instead of whether it is necessary to pay for it with autonomy. One business of iPad with its bolshushchy and capacious accumulator and absolutely another — small phone. Well, engineers of Apple not for nothing eat the bread. Properties of autonomy at iPhone 4S are fine: 8 hours in a conversation mode in 3G networks, 14 hours — 2G, 10 hours of viewing of video, 40 hours of music. Here only web surfing in a 3G-network will land the accumulator in only 6 hours, but the similar indicator was and at iPhone 4. At work through Wi-Fi it is possible to count at 9 o’clock.
On the monitor of anything new it is impossible to tell: the 3,5-inch diagonal, permission of 960х640 points (326 ppi), a static indicator of contrast — 800:1, big brightness — 500 нит, is an oleofobny covering (on the back panel too).
We pass to one more big innovation — to the chamber. As expected, permission of a sensor increased to 8 megapixels, well and the module decently exchanged structurally. The new optical system consisting of 5 parts, and the improved sensor gave increase in light getting on a matrix in 73 % — it excellent! Not including that, became better светосила than a lens to F/2.4. Without pressing in knowledge it is necessary to tell that in aspects of bad illumination pictures will turn out much better, than in iPhone 4. I will add to written above besides the optical filter, for 30 % the overestimated speed of photographing, for 30 % the increased clearness of the total picture and it not all!
Apple developed own processor of images providing automatic detection of persons, for 26 % the improved system of definition of balance white and much increased speed of shooting. To make the 1st picture it will be necessary only 1,1 seconds, the 2nd — 0,5 seconds. The attention to a picture is lower, comments, I think, here are not necessary:
On record of video iPhone 4S the specialist kamkorder out of work leaves. Shooting permission — 1080p, at all this operates system of stabilization of the image and active suppression of noise.
We do not forget about iOS 5 and about Siri, but it already another story altogether about which read soon in other our news. While I will add that device cost in the USA remains invariable, plus the 64-gigabyte model was added. Taking into account the two-year contract the price following: 16 GB — $199, 32 GB — $299, 64 GB — $399. Remains on sale and iPhone 4 the volume of a disk place in what decreased to 8 GB, the price with the contract decreased to $99, and the unblocked model — to $550. Moreover, iPhone 3GS too continues to live further, but under condition of the conclusion of the contract the operator in general gives it (a neverlok in the USA there are $375).
As a result of iPhone 4S it is impossible to call for 100 % the revolutionary device, well and it is similar to simple evolution not enough. Strongly there are a lot of terrible innovations in spite of the fact that outside the device remained invariable. By Apple again made it — made the unique device for the market on which safely can and competitors will equal.
Finally information on date of release of iPhone 4S: On October 14 in the USA and 7 more countries, including Canada, Great Britain and France, the 1st gray deliveries «неверлоков» from where will begin to flow. On October 28 the list will be filled up by 22 countries, and until the end of the year them becomes for 70 more.
