    I liked the bit about Siri having a sense of humour. It's not something I'd expect from Apple, more something you see from Google, but it's a nice touch.

    That was awesome.

    "Who designed you Siri?"
    "Like it says on the box. I was designed by Apple in California."

    Yeah, that was a good review. I'm glad they uploaded quite a few photos. The quality is great for a phone. Definitely going to make my old point-and-shoot obsolete.

    I love the style of videos that TIMN/Verge is doing. Very cool.

    Apple is just some unhip, humorless company. :rolleyes:

    Just been browsing the pics for a while, they look great, the well lit ones are possibly the best I've seen from a phone. The low light ones seem a bit disappointing though, they show a lot of noise.
    Here's a 4S pic (bottles) vs a pic from the new HTC Titan (road):
    I get that they aren't exactly the same light conditions, but the iphone pic just doesn't look as good to me. Can any camera experts weigh in on this?


    I didn't say that, I said it wasn't something I expected. They don't partake in humour and jokes very often anymore.

    Wow. Looks like a screen downgrade. That thing looks very washed out.

    It really doesn't, if anything the original display on the 4 has the contrast too high.

    Agreed. Is this the issue for this gen?

    Yep Tim's gotta cut those costs somewhere to increase those margins.

    Great honest review from Josh, when he ran Engadget I thought he was the biggest iSheep, but I really respect him for this review. Tells it like it is, and can sense Josh is foaming to tell us all about the Nexus-Prime.

    Are you sure the HTC image wasn't post-processed?

    More importantly you cannot compare two different images (for image quality) when they were taken at different times, lighting conditions, definitely at different settings and different subjects. :eek:

    Not the same lightening. In contrast, other photographers are impressed by what I can do with the 2010 iPhone 4.

    Here's a photo taken with the iPhone 4 (NOT iPhone 4S). Resized to same pixel size, output to similar file size, no image adjustment or filters.

    Note that my photo is a close up, so camera shake might be more apparent (compared to street shot).
    Oh and it's hand held, no camera flash.

    Unless WP7 does automatic post processing, I don't think they are, they were camera demonstrations from a review also by TIMN.

    I saw in the Slashgear review they had a night time road shot by the iPhone 4S, it looked a lot better, so I guess maybe the pic in the TIMN review weren't a fair comparison. I wasn't trying to say that the iPhone 4S was crap at low light shots, just that from the pictures, it looked to me like the Titan did them better, but it seems it was all down to the lighting. :eek:
