The key differences are illustrated on red boxes.
Of special mention, Apple has built significant antenna upgrades into the iPhone 4S, saying in the press release announcing the phone that it is the first phone to intelligently switch between two antennas to send and receive. The new Siri feature will make it much easier to interact with the phone while driving.The system works contextually, allowing you to have an actual conversation with your iPhone and control important functionality within the iPhone 4S (e.g. calls, calendaring, alarms, search etc)
The iPhone 4S is also a world phone supporting both GSM and CDMA technologies, and also supports HSDPA download speeds of up to 14.4 Mbps, twice that of the iPhone 4.The iPhone 4S also included Bluetooth 4.0 for improved short-range wireless interfacing. Video can also be recorded at Full HD 1080p with real time image stabilization. The sensor takes in 73% more light than the iPhone 4, allowing for much better low-light performance. It also doubles the maximum HSDPA data speeds to 14.4 Mbps Which means faster connections, faster loading and reloading, and faster downloads.
