I'm trying to think yes it can last year I was well impressed by HD video at 720p on my Iphone 4 but the S so far I can't see much difference. Slight extra detail but still the same low light issues still the same issues with movement if you record and you walk with the phone it blurs. Pictures still look grainy and the Iphone 4S lacks a better flash in low light and some of the extras that come with a camera. I'm tending to think the Iphone 4S camera is just a patched up job of technology on the market in 2007 as comparing the same shots from my C905 the Sony Ericsson out performed it. I hope Apple don't go 12MP for the next Iphone as those models were terrible hence why there was so few. The 4S has a clear issue small device and it's a camera phone. It may compre to proper cameras in bright daylight but for every day shots it's not too good. I find the photo light gives clear photos on nights out but the most disappointing is pictures taken in daylight with little sun or early evening. Grainy, Blurry and yes I came from the Iphone 4 to 4S and those extra mega pixels do add more grain just like the K850 > C905 Cybershot phone. Anybody buying it for the camera may feel short changed as it lacks features many other real camera phones had.
