Are Both Style and Substance in the iPhone 4S? “When you're a carpenter making a beautiful chest of drawers, you're not going to use a piece of plywood on the back, even though it faces the wall and nobody will ever see it. You'll know it's there, so you're going to use a beautiful piece of wood on the back. For you to sleep well at night, the aesthetic, the quality, has to be carried all the way through.” -Steve Jobs Perhaps this is the reason why Apple is known to deal with things with proper planning and strategic backups when they release a new device or when they are about to make an upgrade of their existing product line. A lot of tech gadget sites and even renowned tech analysts would say that Apple is one of the few companies considered to be perfectionists of their own craft. For the fact that Apple is a company who makes their own software and designs their own hardware, they see to it that their products are within an inch of perfection. So, now that Apple has already launched their new products, the iPhone 4S and the new iPad, an underlying question is formed: Is the iPhone 4S a work of art? Is it really worth selling your iPhone 4 or 3G? Let’s find out. The gadget geeks at iFixit are people who always get their hands on something new and fresh in the tech market. Maybe it’s from the personal computer or the smartphone department. They will try to uncover the structural and material components of a device to know if these things are providing service to their full potential. This is a website that arranges for free repair instructions and advice mediums, and is usually one of the first to disassemble a new gadget for testing and investigations. As for the iPhone 4S, it didn't take them long to peek at the internal design of the gadget to know if it measured up to Apple’s sense of perfection. When iFixit got to disassemble the iPhone 4S, they saw what it was made of and how the phone was carefully brought together “…and there's no plywood to be found.” When it comes to the exclusivity of the materials used and how everything was put in order, Djuric of iFixit says that the iPhone seems to be on the same edge with most smartphones. So, what sets the iPhone 4S apart from the other iPhones and smartphones available? The answer is in the marketing. Its manufacturer knows how to present its products in a way that owners feel a sense of exclusivity. They’re also no slouching in luring people with the sleek, stylish look of their gadgets. The question is, should you seriously consider selling your old iPhone because the new models have ‘substance’ aside from just style? Die-hard iDevice fans will say yes, and the more practical ones will say it’s not worth it. In the end though, there are a good number of features that set the iPhone 4S apart from its predecessors, so it is still a good idea to sell your iPhone 4 or 3G.
