Features That Made iPhone 4S Click

The iPhone 4S is the latest cellphone from Apple. Since it has so many features it won’t be appropriate to think it is just a phone. It is a sort of mini computer.

The iPhone 4S comes in two colours – white and black. Don’t be upset if you need more colours. “iPhone Bumpers” are available that can be made to fit the edges of your iphone that will give it different colours. 6 such colours are available.

The iPhone 4S comes in three memory capacities and as such three prices. The cost of 16GB memory is 199 US$. 32GB costs 299 US$ and 64GB costs 399 US$.

Yes the device is expensive but considering its usefulness it is worth it.

iPhone 4S is only 9.3 mm thick and weighs only 140 grams. So it is very easy to carry it with you.

Wi-fi and 3G are obviously supported. Net access all the time.

Two cameras are built in – one at the front and the other one at the back. The front camera is for video chat and is VGA. The back side camera is of 8 megapixel quality. It includes features like autofocus, face detection in still images, LED flash, video recording in High Definition (HD) 1080p.

Lithium-ion battery is used which allows a talk time of up to 8 hours on 3G and up to 14 hours on 2G (GSM).

iPhone 4S is using a software named Siri – which is pretty unique in its own way. Siri enables you to talk to your iphone!

Just say what you want your iphone to do and it will be done. See the image below for what I mean.

Apple iPhone 4S Review

Though there are some softwares that convert speech to text on your computer but they all need special training. You need to speak only in a special way so that that software can interpret it. But with Siri, it is not the case.

To quote Apple’s offical website:

You can speak to Siri as you would to a person — in a natural voice with a conversational tone. If you want to know what the weather will be like tomorrow, simply say “What will the weather be like tomorrow?” Or “Does it look like rain tomorrow?” Or even “Will I need an umbrella tomorrow?” No matter how you ask, Siri will tell you the forecast.

Having the iPhone 4S is like having a personal assistant.

Siri presently works with the following languages:

  • English (United States, United Kingdom, Australia)
  • French (France)
  • German (Germany)

Apple claims that in 2012, Siri will support additional languages, including Japanese, Chinese, Korean, Italian, and Spanish.

iPhone 4S works on a dual-core A5 chip which results in seven times faster graphics and two times more power than the iphone 4.

The operating system is updated and named iOS5 which has 200 more features than the old operating system.

And yes! The apps store has more than 5 lakh apps so you can do virtually anything from your iphone.

With iphone 4S, Apple has proven yet again that they are the best cell phone makers.

7 Vital Features Of An Effective Social Media Campaign

Social media campaigns are about creating experiences; memorable, rich and engaging experiences. Social Media campaigns are about finding the right mix of tools, the right media and the right stories to tell. Stories can be told in many ways, only a few remain in people’s minds. The following are features of an effective social media campaign.

Social Media Marketing

1. Simple Execution and Easy Comprehension

To make a good impression to the right audience and in the shortest time, campaigns should be as simple as possible. Simple concepts can be made to look complex and complex ideas made to look simple. The idea is to make the final product simple to comprehend, though the concept and execution may be complex. The audience is subconsciously about if the campaign is easily understood or not. If it is not, then the whole exercise is a waste.

2. Be unique and stand out

Though there is a lot of noise out there, people have developed their own way of separating the noise from the signal. The only way of standing out is to become familiar with the noise out there. Listen to the critics, listen to the demands, study the trends and figure out what people like and dislike. The bottom line is to be a good consumer and a good listener first. Then you will be able to know how good or bad your concept is.

3. Be lean and mean, short and sweet

It is fact that time is a limited commodity these days. With all the activities going on around, many people don’t have a very long attention span. With a short attention span, we must communicate a lot, which is no easy task. The answer is to be very short and sweet. Get to the point, with minimal distractions.

4. Brand cohesiveness

Many social media campaigns have failed due to lack of brand cohesiveness. While our efforts should be directed towards creating a great engaging and interactive campaign, there is no point of being funny if people won’t remember your brand. The idea is to be entertaining and funny as possible while at the same time fixing your brand in people’s subconscious minds. The challenge is creating a campaign that does not get too entertaining or too promotional. Successful campaigns are those that can find the right mix.

5. Emotions speak volumes

People are emotional beings and what registers in our minds most are emotions. We like to cry, we like to laugh and we love to be inspired. Unless a campaign, be it a series of events, pictures or videos, capture some emotion, there is little chance that it will stay in people’s minds. A detailed study of your brand, its perceived values and associated emotions can offer clues about what may work best in a campaign.

6. Prompt for Action

Let’s assume you have a campaign ready with all the ingredients. Let’s also assume that people like it. Then what next? If it is a viral message or funny video, people may share it. But is that enough? The answer depends on your overall strategy. Do you have a page where people can register? Every campaign should have a funnel mechanism which will trigger people to action.
