Hi all, I just bought my black iPhone 4S 16GB yesterday, here are some thoughts & experiences. Its been a whole month ordeal for me as I swayed back and forth between the Samsung Galaxy S2 & the iPhone 4S. In the end I chose the 4S because for the main part, I could use it with one hand (I have small hands). First, the purchasing part. I "Reserved" an officially Unlocked White 16GB at the NY 5th Ave. store for pickup btw. 5PM - 6PM next day. I got to the store at about 4PM, and was on line for 30+ minutes. When it was my turn, the "line manager" fiddled around on his iPad...and apparently something was wrong. He didn't really say anything to me, but I overheard him tell the clerk that's to help me something along the lines of, "just get an unlocked AT&T one...". I prayed I overheard wrong so I went along with it. Another 10 minutes go by, and the clerk comes back with an iPhone box, and proceeds to explain to me they're out of "officially" unlocked ones, but they can offer me this AT&T one which they'll unlock for me. That was not what I wanted to hear. After a bit of calm conversing, the clerk went and go a manager. The manager was very nice and apologized for their "screw up". Basically he said, some how, someone, was able to walk away with MY "reserved" phone. The other clerk also admitted it was "mind boggling" how this happen(s)...yes, its happened before & hasn't stopped. The manager offered to give me a free case for the mess up, but all I wanted was an officially unlocked phone and not extorting them for freebies. Then the manager said if I'd be willing to take a black model. I said yes, and after 5 minutes he comes back with an officially unlocked BLACK phone. The receipt states officially unlocked. I walked away happy. I got home, and was immediately struck by the "yellowish" screen. I compared with my iPod 1st Gen, iPhone 3GS, and my father's iPhone 4S & iPad 2. My phone's screen was the most "yellow"; my father's a bit less so, and the 3GS the most "normal", for what it's worth. But to be honest, I quite like the warm color tint, as does my wife. Other than that, I did not see any stuck/dead pixels or any dark blotches exhibited by the screen. Battery life so far seems to be on par with my 2 year 3GS, which is somewhat disappointing, but I'm optimistic Apple will fix it in the near future. Or maybe I'm just trying to make myself feel better, ha! Anywho, I'm really enjoying this phone. The retina display is gorgeous, I prefer it over the Galaxy S2's SAMOLED. The phone's ultra responsive, the OS is familiar. And to top it off, mine came with a SIM eject pin! Now I'm looking to buy a White 4S for the misses. Hopefully my "reservation" actually reserves something this time!
