2:08PM Hars, but fair, Phil. Harsh but fair.

2:07PM "I don't know what Droid Bionic users need to do between pictures, maybe go get coffee."

2:07PM The 4S? A mere 1.1 seconds for the first picture, and a half-second for the second.

2:07PM Comparo tie: Bionic takes 3.7 seconds for the first picture, 2 for the Galaxy S II, Sensation 2.1.

2:07PM Yes, folks, not 25 percent.

2:06PM There's a new Image Signal Processor that Apple designed, enabling face detection and 26 percent better white balance.

2:06PM "That's a lot on the camera itself, but it doesn't sotp with the camera."

2:05PM And, five whole elements in the lens assembly -- 30 percent more sharper, and it'll go down to f/2.4!

2:05PM There's an IR filter on there too for better, more accurate colors.

2:05PM A 60 percent boost over the iPhone 4. Phil is saying that more pixels isn't necessarily better, but it's a backside illuminated CMOS, so that means 73 percent more light. It's faster, too -- one third quicker.

2:04PM It is, indeed, an eight megapixel sensor. that's 3264 x 2448.

2:04PM Apple was competing with the "many great point and shoot cameras, so it's the one camera you really want to have with you all of the time."

2:04PM Phil's reminding us that the iPhone 4 is now the most popular camera for uploading pictures on Flickr. The 4S now has an "all new" camera."

2:03PM Now, new camera.

2:03PM "That really benefits customers a lot" -- particularly those who have racked up as many frequent flier miles as we have lately.

2:03PM Okay, now its network time. The iPhone 4 was of course GSM vs. CDMA. The 4S is both -- GSM and CDMA.

2:02PM Why not some LTE options?

2:02PM Phil's taking a shot against the Atrix, Thrill, and Inspire 4G. "The iPhone 4S is just as fast as these phones."

2:01PM Theoretical download speeds are now twice, 14.4Mbps versus 7.2 on the iPhone 4.
