iPhone 4S: Disappointment or Improvement?

It seems that a lot of people were disappointed upon the announcement of the iPhone 4S. Most people believed it would be more of an iPhone 5 and not an iPhone 4S, meaning most people thought it would be a total rethink of the iPhone and not just an improvement. I thought it was kind of obvious that if Apple announced iOS 5 a few months back than this wouldn’t be a big update. Also, there was an iPhone 3G and 3GS, so it only makes sense to have an iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S. A lot of people still thought that Apple was going to release a radical update despite the undeniable evidence pointing in the other direction.

Therefore, I cannot understand why people would bash the iPhone 4S because their foolish expectations weren’t lived up to. Stop complaining. If you (an ambiguous “you”) don’t like what they made, then make your own iPhone. They don’t control you. If you don’t like it, don’t buy it! But please, don’t complain about it.

Moreover, this iPhone 4S has been cleverly dubbed as the iPhone “For Steve”. Although it is clever, I highly doubt that it was intentional. It is most likely a coincidence, but who knows, Apple could have changed the name from “iPhone 5″ to “iPhone 4S” for this exact meaning. We will never know, unless they release some sort of statement about it.

That’s all I have to say about the iPhone 4S. If you disagree/agree with something I said or you have a general comment, feel free to leave a comment. Also, will you be getting an iPhone 4S when it is released? I know my dad will; I might even be able to post a video of “Siri” first-hand… but no guarantees.

EDIT: I understand that my opinion might be somewhat unclear just from reading the above post, so for clarity, I think that the iPhone 4S is an improvement and not a disappointment. I think Apple did a great job with it and I can’t wait until it is released.

People think of a new iPhone and immediately think its nothing unless it's a new shape. They don't see that the 4s is a huge upgrade in terms of speed and capability. However, the average phone user won't notice that; hence the whole bashing of the 4s.

I completely agree. Also, people might have been expecting an inside AND outside redesign, and they were disappointed because it doesn't have a new look.
