iPhone 4S Design. Thoughts? Should people get?

So, Apple had it's Apple's Conference some time ago, and release a video detailing the new interior upgrade of the iPhone4S. So before giving you the details, you can watch the video, which you probably did already.
I shall be depicting my topics from there, recapping.

A robot chick that takes your every command. YES! EVERY COMMAND! Nah, I jokes, but on a serious not, it a pretty cool idea. The voice sounds pretty legit, and can pick up and understand what you are saying and what you specifically want, form making appointments, changing appointments, reading your messages, looking for specific places, and even text you say. Nice. The thing is about the say and text command. Does Siri really know what you are saying to type it out on the phone? Not to be racist or anything, but what about people with heavy accents or people who can barely speak English? Yes, there is a language change options in the settings, but does Siri also change? I don't know, so don't kill me. That would be cool but if you say something wrong and Siri picks it up and text it to the person, say your going to a strip club for your Brocassion and suddenly your girl texts you and there is people saying stuff in the background?

A5 Dual Core Pocessor:
The A5 contains a rendition of a chip based upon the dual-core ARM Cortex-A9 MPCore CPU with NEON SIMD accelerator and a dual core PowerVR SGX543MP2 GPU. Apple lists the A5 to be clocked at 1 GHz on the iPad 2's technical specifications page, though it can dynamically adjust its frequency to save battery life. Among the customizations that Apple has done to the chip is including an image signal processor unit (ISP) that will do advanced image post-processing such as face detection, white balance and automatic image stabilization. So they just technically took the processor in the iPad 2, and shoved it in the new iPhone4S, and twice as powerful CPU and seven times more power GPU then the A4. Now this is a nice touch.

8-Megapixel Camera with 1080p Video Recording
Very self-explanatory, upgraded camera and recording 1080p videos at thirty frames per second with upgraded quality (30% better clarity, 26% better white balance, color accuracy), or so they say, thanks to an additional lens.

Battery Life
The iPhone 4S is stated to have 200 hours standby time (iPhone 4 300 hours) less by 100 hours, 8 hours talk time on 3G whereas iPhone 4 as 7hrs, 14 hours talk time on 2G, 6 hours 3G browsing, and 9 hours Wi-Fi browsing. Pretty standard, a few loses there but whatever.

Aww, yes, we are finally here. The design of the iPhone4S. It does have the same exterior design of the iPhone4 which everyone was really disappointed about. Yes I can understand why, over time it does start to look really plain, but you just cover it with a case anyways? So why? People are also complaining that the iPhone4S doesn't have a slightly larger screen, but what for? Doesn't a larger screen take slightly more battery life? They would have to adjust lightly for the retina so that it looks clear as crisp. I saw a few design, some looked pretty cool, especially this one I saw that had the metal backing, (I'm just to lazy to find it to post it, but if I do, I will), other didn't reach my appeal, but some people like it. Shown below the second video gives you the new concept of the new design, I don't like it. It looks like I could break my Ultra Flimsy iPhone just by sitting on it 

A nice design, looks pretty the same, just a little different I guess:

The thinnest iPhone 4S/5 Concept I've seen:

My Thoughts
I really like what they did with the whole new interior upgrade to the iPhone4S, just wish they did change the look a little more to make it unique, I mean if your going to change the inner hardware, might as well make it look as bad-ass and powerful like the inside, but I guess the saying "Don't judge a books by it's cover" does come into play. I do, however plan on getting the iPhone 4S to replace my Sony Ericsson as it is turning old and I hate the charger. Never getting an Android again, BUT I'm not hating on them, I just don't like most of the interface and the sliding menu is soooo slow... compared to the iPhone or Touch, the swipe is pretty quick. So I hope you have made your decision of getting the iPhone4S through my Blog, and give me your thoughts.

Rest in Peace, Steve Jobs 1955-2011

Today, I will start a blog.
Yes, me, cause I don't like twitter... and I don't get the point of it really...
Yes, it is a social networking site, where people can follow each other, but why?
Getting prizes and free tickets to a concert yeah sure, sounds great, but to follow and see what they are doing every moment and where they are? Really? It kinda gets boring after awhile because well, they are just like regular people, (just with a giant wad of cash).
I will probably just post rants of opinions and other important daily news to see what I can conjure up. I guess I'm gonna post up some videos about random things.
SO! iPhone4S anyone? I'm planning on getting it, so give me your opinions!
