Best iPhone 4S alternatives

The best smartphone alternatives to the Apple iPhone 4S

Apple recently launched its 5th generation iPhone but it didn't unveil the iPhone 5, like many rumours suggested. It unveiled the iPhone 4S — it looks exactly like an iPhone 4, except it has a faster processor, a better graphics engine and a better camera. It's also got an assistant called "Siri" that interacts with you via voice commands.

Sound uninspiring? Thankfully, there are plenty of alternatives to the iPhone 4S that will provide you with similar or even better features. We've rounded up the top 10.

HTC Sensation XE

The HTC Sensation XE is by no means a bad Android phone, but none of its features blew us away. We love the red and black design and the urBeats headphones are a nice inclusion, but average battery life and less than stellar performance detract from its appeal. Ultimately, the HTC Sensation XE is a very good smartphone but not a great one.

Dynabook Portégé X30L-G

Ultimately this laptop has achieved everything I would hope for in a laptop for work, while fitting that into a form factor and weight that is remarkable.

This smart laptop was enjoyable to use and great to work on – creating content was super simple.

MSI GT76

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

Jack Jeffries

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

MSI PS63

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

Brother RJ-4230B

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
