iPhone 4S Teardown Review

2011/11/d2391_Iphone_4S_default

We sent our co-founder 18 hours into the future, to Melbourne, Australia, to get his skillful hands on Apple’s latest iPhone offering: the iPhone 4S. But surprise! Fed-Ex one-upped us by delivering an iPhone 4S early to (iFixit user) Markus Weiher in Germany, and with Markus’s help we were able to give the iPhone 4S the teardown treatment it deserves.

Also, you, like many of us, might be wondering if you can install Siri on your iPhone/iPad/iPod. While the verdict is still out on that question, this video has a couple of possible reasons why it’s not available. This video highlights the most interesting changes made to the iPhone 4S; for complete technical details and high resolution photos check out the teardown at: www.ifixit.com

    @BanksTheTank89 The reason they post stuff like that is because it is the only time they talk to women… lol
    You know the creepy looking guys at the mall that just stare at chics….. They perv post when they get home.

    At least take comfort knowing they don’t bother women in real life.

    Her voice’s f* annoyin,
    and she delivers her speech in such a monotone and unclear voice.
    And stop nodding your head every 2 seconds,
    This doesn’t make you more understandable !!
    And can you find a more “brainless” answer on the question “why can’t my iphone run Siri” ?
    Is this your 3 year old child’s attempt to answer it ?

  15. JohnAngioli says:

    M.J., you’re beautiful and intelligent, I could look at and listen to you for hours! :-)
    Some guy is going to be really really lucky! Well, now that this Canadian has shared his opinion of you, M.J., what’s your opinion regarding the iPhone5 being a 4G phone? One of the main reasons I haven’t upgraded to the 4s is because I’ve heard the next gen phone will be 4G. Your thoughts? :-)

  16. meninrevolt says:

    Goddammit, her voice is annoying.

    I think you must mean “an additional .5 Watt-hours”, not .05, since the total capacity is 5.3 Whr. A bump from 4.8 to 5.3 Whr is a bit over ten percent. Going from 5.25 to 5.3 would have been less than a one percent bump.

    @iFixitYourself you’re awesome :D

  23. jeffreyropp says:

  24. iFixitYourself says:

    @AjaxService Hi. “The Girl” here to clarify. I write everything I say, and I don’t read it, I just say it from memory. But feel free to continue voice your completely uninformed opinion. You’re entitled to it. :) –mj

  25. AjaxService says:

    btw, the girl just reads the teleprompter and don’t necessarily understands what she’s talking about

  26. matzorama says:

    focus on the skinny things:

    it’s quite simple: focus works by tapping stuff you see on your screen, tapping has the thickness of your finger = things you want to get focused should have the same thickness on the iPhone 4S Screen!

  40. wrangleroooo says:

    how much battery had you left after this video?

  41. wrangleroooo says:

    @0nderandereN
    I have one at home, and its shit, I woundt anyone recommned to buy one!!!!!

  42. MegaRami92 says:

    @inquisitivewolf My Nokia N8 is much better from this when i record with 720p HD video its looks better from that IPhone 4s camera

  43. AmbiguousFilmsLtd says:

    Minus the fact that this camera’s rolling shutter is absolutely outrageous and there’s very deep depth of field, it’s extremely impressive. Sony really outdid themselves with the image sensor. Not sure if they made the processor, too, but I’m sure they did. Regardless, this quality is a sexy solution for those of you who are looking for a cheap solution without going full DSLR/HDV.

  44. VideoHeroTV says:

    nice review

  45. HDRCX550VE says:

    @0nderandereN Well, this is a phone. Most people have dedicated cameras that can do the job properly.

  46. danto6 says:

  47. 0nderandereN says:
