  • Documentation
Globe Telecommunications and Smart Communications already provides the new iPhone4S. The service providers offers promos and other schemes to entice the consumers but in the end, the verdict is yours. Choose the network provider at your own preference, Smart or Globe, it’s the same phone after all. So we heard good reviews and nice feedback from the users about the new iPhone4s but there are just two things I would like to see if ever they will release another phone in the next few months or even a year, probably the iPhone5. One is to integrate built-in flash for the great camera to capture better images in places with low light source and second is to launch it less expensive, I know it’s too much to ask but I hope they’re gonna think it over. Over all, it’s another innovation and a job well done for the Apple Corporation.
More to press, so stay tuned.
