11/13/2011, One of the iPhone 4S’ strength would be the inclusion of Siri, your virtual talking assistant who is able to help you out in a variety of situations, although a lot of it depends on the plug-ins that it works with in the background, in addition to whether your accent is clear enough for Siri to understand.
