Having got my very first Apple product The iPhone 4S through the PayPal’s Wishlist competition back in December of 2011, it was only right I would give everyone a low down on how my user experiences have been in using the iPhone 4S. Having been a Nokia user for many years and I have to admit I don’t know why I never used the iPhone before but now I have had the opportunity for it to wow me and now I trust the iPhone will become an invaluable tool and mobile smartphone for years to come.
The iPhone 4S in Summary
Here are a number of features that have bee great for my day to day life, and having used the iPhone for a number of weeks I can safely say it is and will continue to be the best smartphone ever to be introduced and eclipses all the predecessors of the past.

Not only have I been able to manage my day to day events, I also receive notifications of Birthday’s and Anniversary of families and friends and these are sync’d via iCloud and user inputs on the Windows Live & hotmail calendars. This is also extended to the Google Calendars which Sync’s fabulously. Now I don’t have to rely Facebook events anymore and therefore all my events are pushed straight to my iPhone notification centre which ultimately enables me to SMS and email my friends and family all from the comfort of my iPhone. I will never have to worry about a missed Birthday or Appointment ever again.
HD Camera & HD Video
Now the 8MP HD camera has been so convenient for me and the quality of the images are second to none. Believe it or not I actually was looking to buy a Digital camera to go alongside my iPhone 4S, however after taking a few photos from the iPhone I have to admit I have been pleased with the quality of the photos and therefore will not be needing one.

iMessage, Game Centre, Notification Centre, Mail, Find iPhone, Find Friends, App Store & Music have all been fantastic to use.
The App store houses a number of fantastic free games and the gaming experience has been excellent. Hours of fun in one pocket sized phone. Impressed with the graphics, game loading speed, and general gameplay have been excellent. My favourite games include
- Temple Run
- Mega Jump
- iBasket & Monopoly
Apple App Store
Linking in from the games from the App Store, I have been delighted with the quality of the Apps available for me to download, use and play with on a day to day basis, and I have been happy with the whole user experience and that being further boosted by how much it can perform on a platform as such and I for one have been impressed with the iPhone. It brings me great pleasure to let you all know how much of a delight it has been to use all these different and wonderful applications.
Imti’s top 5 Applications
I thought my biggest bug bear would be the fact that the iPhone did not have a physical keyboard and I was anticipating the touch screen to be my biggest irritant, however the touch screen and the interface has been fantastic for me. The biggest disappointment has been the functionality of the much hyped Siri.I understand the nostalgia and the hype behind the voice operated iPhone assistant that could do a number of things namely the dictation of both SMS and e-mails, generate up to date weather forecasts, perform calendar and other tasks, web search, and or tell a joke or two, but the nostalgia did wear off and I eventually switched the service off. Not only does the map search function of Siri open to US carriers only it just does not appeal to my overall user experience and I don’t believe I will use Siri anytime soon unless it does something spectacular or develops for the future.
