We've conducted a detailed review of the iPhone 4S 16GB SoftBank, looking into its battery, how easy it is to use the camera, and whether the CPU performance is high or low. Not only that, but we've also evaluated how portable and easy to hold it is, as well as how nice the display is.

Features, Performance, and Reviews for the iPhone 4S 16GB SoftBank

The camera function of iPhone 4S 16GB SoftBank

The main camera of the iPhone 4S 16GB SoftBank has a capacity of 8 MP pixels, and is adequate for normal use. But some users may feel dissatisfied with the picture quality.

The iPhone 4S 16GB SoftBank comes equipped with a 0.3 MP pixel front-facing camera, which is very low resolution. If you aren't particular about your videos or photos, it might be fine, but otherwise, we recommend a smartphone at least one tier higher.

The battery performance of iPhone 4S 16GB SoftBank

The battery of the iPhone 4S 16GB SoftBank has a capacity of 1420mAh, which is rather low. Compared to other smartphones, the battery life of the iPhone 4S 16GB SoftBank is not very good. It's okay if you're just using it for calls and the occasional bit of browsing, but if you're going to browse for extended periods, play games or watch videos, you want a reserve battery pack.

IPhone 4S 16GB SoftBank's size

The iPhone 4S 16GB SoftBank is 2.3inches (58.6mm) wide, 4.5inches (115.2mm) tall, and 0.37inches (9.3mm) thick. It's extremely compact, and can be easily operated with one hand. In the case of the iPhone 4S 16GB SoftBank, it weighs about 4.9oz (140g). The weight is such that it's hardly noticeable even when using one-handed. However, some people may find it tiring to use for long periods.

The size and weight of the iPhone 4S 16GB SoftBank make it very comfortable to use. If you're looking for a smartphone that is easy to handle and carry around, then this should be your first choice.

IPhone 4S 16GB SoftBank's screen

The iPhone 4S 16GB SoftBank has a 3.5 inch screen. It comes in a standard size, and the screen is adequate for most uses. Some users may feel that they would rather have a larger screen, however.

The screen of the iPhone 4S 16GB SoftBank is very clear, so you'll likely have no complaints on that front. However, you should be cautious about viewing things in 4k definition.

The CPU performance of iPhone 4S 16GB SoftBank

The processing performance of the iPhone 4S 16GB SoftBank is quite low at 1.0GHz×2(Dual core), and you may find minor issues even while browsing the internet or Twitter.

The iPhone 4S 16GB SoftBank only has 512.0MB of RAM, which is fairly low. The RAM is regularly insufficient, so operation gets unstable and jerky even when using apps that are not resource intensive.

In rating the iPhone 4S 16GB SoftBank's overall operational speed, it ranks at the low end of smartphones. It will lag and feel sluggish even during normal use. In most cases, users will feel the performance to be lacking.

IPhone 4S 16GB SoftBank's storage capacity

The iPhone 4S 16GB SoftBank has 16GB of data storage, which is plenty for taking photos, but for people who frequently shoot videos or have lots of games installed, this may not feel like enough space.

The iPhone 4S 16GB SoftBank is not compatible with SD cards, so make sure you check that there's enough storage for your needs.

Overall assessment of iPhone 4S 16GB SoftBank

The iPhone 4S 16GB SoftBank's performance level is that of a budget smartphone. It's a bit too weak to use as a main smartphone, so if possible you should consider something slightly more powerful. However, it should be sufficient for people that only want to use the most basic functions, like making calls and browsing the internet, and for people that don't really use smartphones much.
