Does it seem that iphone 5 will be well better, when it comes out?

Or, does it seem that iphone 4s is all what iphone 4 was meant to be, and is now stable and without weaknesses, and will stay valuable for another 3 years, whilst iphone 5 might be over active and not stable until 5s might come out? (in which case, i'd get iphone 4s now, and keep it till iphone 6 or 6s comes out).

I hope not - I have one on order. As far as I can tell if they had called the 4S the iPhone 5 everyone would have been happy. The extra processing power and the improved camera area a massive improvement. Siri seems interesting; almost too good to be true - let's see.

As far as chess is concerned the extra processing power will mean the iPhone 4s will play a mean game.

Try the Google Nexus Prime

"the phone will pack one of Samsung's own chipsets, a 1.5 GHz dual-core affair that will work alongside the same dual-core PowerVR SGX543MP2 GPU that's found in the iPad 2. Instead of the 5-megapixel camera BGR's source promised, GSM Arena's guy is saying the phone will have an 8-megapixel camera in the back. What's more, the source says that the phone will actually boast a 2050mAh battery. Yowza! Both sources seem to agree on the 4.65-inch, 1280x720 pixels screen."

Well considering that the iPhone4s will have a dual core processor like the ipad 2, then things could be good for chess analysis.The only problem is that the developers of chess apps seem not to be interested in taking advantage of these dual cores :roll: I have requested some popular chess app developers to offer the option of dual-core, but the replies seem to be that "Why would someone want a even stronger chess app? the app already plays at SuperGM level, then goes on to say that it is not easy to implement because it will stuff up the elo calibration for the beginner levels.
Any way the iphone 4s will probaby have the CPU underclocked, the screen is still a tiny 3.5 inch, battery life sucks and is not helped by not being replaceable.The camera improvement does nothing for chess players.

I think that iphone 4s is a bad move from apple but from what I read it seems that already a lot of people is buying it
