iPhone 4S First Hands On Video, Details Siri “Raise to Speak” Feature & More

Share:

Over the next few days we’ll be seeing tons of iPhone 4S videos such as unboxing, hands-on impressions and other smartphone comparison videos all over the web and it seems that we already have the first one with us. Some lucky guy has already gotten his hands on a black iPhone 4S before its actual launch on October 14th and has shot a video of it showing some early benchmarks. As reported by MacRumors (via BluC0la), the video also reveals Siri settings interface which allows you to turn Siri On/Off, change Language Settings, Voice feedback, My Info and enable Raise to Speak.

The report says:

“To talk to Siri, press and hold the home button or raise the phone to your ear and speak.”

Early Sunspider marks show a total score of 2222.1ms and a BrowserMark score of 89567. For comparison, it appears that the BrowserMark score for an iPhone 4 running iOS 5 is 44856, so the new iPhone 4S benches twice as fast in the browser.

Even though some iPhone 4S pre-orders have already started shipping but there’s no word yet of any deliveries so far. It remains a mystery how this person secured a handset before time. Anyhow, go ahead and take a look at the first iPhone 4S hands-on video here.

    I got 102641 on my iPad 2 and 52365 on my iPhone 4…both running iOS 5 GM.

    Raise to speak seems to be an interesting feature, but I assume it affects battery life.

    prolly not so much.

    maybe Siri is connected to the sensor that shuts the screen off when you raise it to your head.

    I would imagine that’s the case. Likely, it uses that in combination with knowing that you’re not currently engaged in a phone call.

    Anyone if you can actually use Siri during a call?

    Anyone *know* if you can use Siri during a call, rather.
