The iPhone 4S is nearly one year old but continues to commands a premium price. It is still by far the most expensive mainstream smartphone with an official selling price of £499, 10 per cent more expensive than the Samsung Galaxy S3.
For those looking to buy an iPhone 4S, eBay retailer e_cell offers the handset for £480, a small £19 saving off the RRP. The device is new and comes with one year warranty.
As for the iPhone 4S, it has a dual-core A5 processor, 512MB of RAM, 16GB onboard storage, an 8-megapixel camera with full HD recording capabilities and a front facing camera, a 1432mAh battery and a 3.5in display with a 960 x 640 resolution.
Hardware is only part of the equation as the iPhone’s forte still lies in its services and software.
The follow up to the iPhone 4S, commonly known as the iPhone 5, is expected to be unveiled at a special event next month, alongside a new iPad device called the iPad mini which will compete with Google’s Nexus 7 tablet.
The event will also see the launch of iOS 6, which will bring a number of innovative features like integrated turn by turn navigation.
