Siri, should I change?
Now it is there, the iPhone 5, correct, iPhone 4S . For what is the S in the name? For many things: Siri, speed or signal are just some of those terms that start with S and take off the new iPhone from the predecessor. The question is however: Does the 4S degrade to the old iron or is the update to the new version is only conditionally worthwhile? I took part in a conversation with Siri to answer this question in detail. So, Siri, should I change to the new iPhone 4S? And if so, why?
The Form Factor
From many sides it was “What a disappointment” when Apple presented the 4S officially. No wonder, finally, the whole world has gone crazy with rumors about the new, flatter iPhone 5 in drop format. But if you consider the whole thing a bit sober, it seems just right that Apple has retained the design of the iPhone 4. Not only because not thousands of accessories manufacturers look into the tube, but also because the iPhone 4 is still a damn noble device. A few small changes has made Apple but nevertheless: Thus, the iPhone 4S is equal to the CDMA and not the GSM variant. As a result, the device has a further beam on the right-hand side, which separates the antenna parts, and the mute switch has moved down a few millimeters, which at the very least forces a few accessory manufacturers to redesign their products.
S for Speed
The A5 processor, which already fires the iPad 2, has now also entered the iPhone 4S . Quite as fast as the iPad 2 is the iPhone 4S but not, after all, Apple has lowered the bar in favor of the recharge time a little. In practice, the speed difference to the iPhone 4 is noticeable, but not world-moving. Apps start a bit faster, the web browses a bit more fluently, and especially switching between applications is proceeding faster. The leap from the iPhone 3G to the 3GS, however, was significantly more noticeable. At the moment, the A5 justifies the upgrade from the 4 to the 4S not yet. This may change as new applications appear to take advantage of the faster processor. In particular, game friends should adjust to the fact that the prettiest versions of 3D games will soon flicker on the Retina displays of the 4S.
S for nicer photos
Point two: The better camera. The new 8-megapixel sensor not only makes higher-resolution photos, but also gets clear with poor light conditions. Even if the camera the iPhone 4 already one of the better Handykameras was, the iPhone 4S set new standards. Not only because the higher-resolution images simply look better and sharper, but because of a low aperture also a certain degree of depth of field when you put it on. In addition, one can take with the 4S via software image-stabilized 1080p video recordings: The image stabilization works with small movements quite well, the qualitative difference to the 720p videos of the iPhone 4 can be seen at least on the iPhone display itself. If you give the whole thing on the computer or on the television, the difference is clearer. Conclusion to the camera: Who photographed much or exclusively with his telephone, the upgrade to the 4S in any case with the camera justify, as that of the 4S clearly more beautiful pictures makes. To a modern Digiknipse comes the phone of course not ran, the somewhat older Ixus can be from now but confidently remain in the drawer.
S for Siri
Siri is the only standalone feature of the iPhone 4S. This is a language-driven assistant that not only answers one or the other question, but also saves appointments in the calendar, reminders or alarms. To start the iPhone 4S, Siri understands three languages: German, English and French. The language must be set explicitly in the Siri settings. If German is set, Siri does not understand any English input. This has a big drawback: access to the knowledge database Wolfram Alpha or to the Google map data works so far only in English, if you want to command Siri in German, so you restrict yourself in some way. So you only have an iPhone-internal functions like reminders, the calendar or the weather. But the most important question: How does Siri cope with the German language input?
The first try; “How is the weather in Dresden tomorrow?” Works without problems. Siri provides information about the weather and even tries to make an interpretation. Finally, it becomes “worse”. Simple things like “wake me in 40 minutes” work easily. If, for example, you give too little information when you create a calendar entry, the good is directly linked to: “What time is your appointment?”. Yes, the whole thing has a wow effect. When Siri is a more difficult task, she seldom gets stuck, I call her, “Create an entry on 27th November at 11:30 am meeting with Annette”, Siri will deal without problems. Difficulties, however, the speech recognition, for example with “warmer” times like 11:27 clock, but when one has already an appointment at such a time? Other problems occur with English terms or names: If Siri is trimmed in German, she practically does not accept any English terms and only recognizes confusing information.
If you stick to a certain format, Siri makes her case quite well in German. However, the whole thing is paralyzed, especially in German, because of the fact that the range of functions is quite limited. For the given applications, such as the creation of calendar entries, the setting of the alarm clock or local reminder functions in combination with the new Reminders, Siri turns out to be a good assistant and allows the user to do things faster than via the keyboard ,By the way, the German version comes with some humorous interludes. Some of them are in the picture gallery of Siri.
In addition to the wizard function, Apple has also integrated a system-wide feature that allows the user to dictate texts that are then converted by the iPhone into fonts. Applications are, for example, the writing of SMS or e-mails. Dictation works surprisingly well, but you should be careful to dictate with “point”, “comma”, “question mark” and “exclamation mark” as the translated text otherwise quickly becomes illegible. The whole thing reminds strongly of the Dragon Dictation App , which functions similarly well and also as the Siri function requires an Internet connection, since the input is not processed locally, but online.
The iPhone 4S comes with almost everything you wanted in advance. The speed increase is nice, but not as noticeable as the jump from 3G to 3GS. The camera belongs to the best, which is installed in mobile phones and makes very good photos and videos. In addition, there is the language assistant Siri, who also has the potential in the German variant to change the picture of the use of computers and smartphones, even if the range of functions is currently very limited. It now remains to Apple to bring Siri well over the beta phase and the lady consistently improve. The initial question can only be answered by using the following conditions: Switching from the iPhone 4 to the 4S is really only worthwhile if you want to make with your phone very good videos and photos or if a language assistant to create reminders, alarm clocks Or calendar entries is the feature you’ve been waiting for all your life.The last good thing would be the price, which has not changed: Compared to other smartphones is clearly too high. On the other hand, you also have to remember that Apple can not make enough phones to cover the demand. There are consequently also enough buyers, which for the top version of the iPhone 4S lush 850 euros on the table.
If you want to see Siri and the iPhone 4S once in action, this can be seen, for example, in the video of colleagues from the Süddeutsche Zeitung:
Notes on availability at Cyberport: The iPhone 4S will initially only be available with Vodafone’s contract offers exclusively in the Store Berlin-Mitte-cost point with contract from 99 euros, available from Monday. If you want, you can already reserve a model from your colleagues in Berlin today and receive it on Monday. As expected, we also have very limited stocks. At the moment it is not yet foreseeable, when we can sell contract-free devices with us.As soon as there is news, you can read it here in CyberBloc.
