The dust has settled and we now know that Apple decided to release an iPhone 4S instead of the much hyped but highly imagined iPhone 5.  There’s nothing Apple fans can do about it so what needs to be done now is compare the iPhone 4S to last years iPhone 4 and see if the new features are worth the upgrade.

On the design side, we have seen that nothing has changed, not even the screen.  Inside the iPhone 4S however are improved hardware, like the dual-core Apple A5 CPU and the 8 megapixel camera.  The iPhone 4S is however heavier by3 grams.

Here’s a features comparison between the iPhone 4S and the iPhone 4.
