Display hasn't seen much improvement when compared with the predecessor, Iphone 4

Exceptional visibility in sunlight

Substantial viewing angles in the screen

The glass back is prone to breaks in case it slides through owners hand
as it doesnt give a good grip

iPhone 4 accessories won't go nearly as well with iphone 4s

The home button launches the Siri virtual assistant briskly

The volume up key compromises a camera shuttering as well

MicroSIM card slot opening can be well endured only with the enclosed SIM eject tool, carry it

No stereo speakers

The bumper cases are still needed for protection, regarding the antenna

Sports two antennas to tackle the "death grip" issue

Don't fear, death grip won't interfere. Hold it anywise, the antennas can switch between any mode when required. When one antenna is blocked, the other volunteers

The hit! SAR values are all time high

Text input can be feeded through voice and is recognised throughout the system

No layers or advanced menus

Apple ensures the user with more than 200 new features, but most doubt the number

Mail, voicemail, calendar and reminder sound alerts can be customized

When carrier fails to support FaceTime activation by phone number, email can be used as ID ( automatically done )

CDMA available only on CDMA network activated handsets. To get it straight, if you buy an iPhone with a GSM SIM card, it won't catch CDMA coverage

Better loudspeaker performance

No SMS delivery reports
