Apple iPhone 4s 8GB White (Sim Free / Unlocked) Mobile Smart Phone

Refurbished With a 12 Month Argos Guarantee

Please note that this mobile phone will always include the handset, battery and USB charging cable. Accessories are not included e.g. headphones, USB wall charger or screen protectors.

This pre-owned iPhone 4s has a classic look, but is full of features. Reliable, easy to use, it's ideal for just about anyone, and is a great alternative to brand new phones as it still has fantastic power and features, but is more economically priced.

Category A refurbished product.

Mobile phone features:

The battery of the iPhone 4s gives a standby time of up to 200 hours and talk time up to 8 hours. Running iOS 7 means it has the latest software. The dual core 1ghz a5 processor was designed specifically iPhone 4S, so it's perfect for the job. An 8MP camera is still one of the best around, and with 8GB of on-board memory, there's lots of space for music and photos.
Simply ask siri to help you send messages, set reminders or search information. It understands not only what you say, but also what you mean, so you can speak naturally. It can even use information from your iPhone – such as your locations, contacts and contact relationships – to provide intelligent, personal assistance.
With a custom-lens and a new 8-megapixel sensor, iPhone 4s takes superb photos. You can also record 1080p hd video with image stabilisation. Icloud stores your music, photos, documents and more, and wirelessly pushes them to all devices. Automatic, effortless and seamless – it just works. Icloud is the easiest way to manage your content, because now you don't have to.
The 3.5 Inch screen is one of the sharpest around and has particularly lifelike colours. Resolution is 640x960, giving it 330 pixels per inch (ppi), a very high score.

iPhone 7 is being announced next week, i'd wait and get that. (_;)

Don't bother, i got my 8 yr old daughter a refurb 4s for £25 that was as good as new thinking it would be useful as a spotify player and camera.

It was so frustratingly slow and a lot of apps are now more geared for bigger screen so aren't very user friendly.

Because it's now pour of date. So apps will dwindle and 8gb makes it little more point than a basic iPod or say a remote control for devices which happens to have a phone and GPS.

Never been a fan of Apple, they need to get with the times, an SD slot has been in most phones over 10yrs, forcing people to use you icloud service or delete if they run outta space. Not good for traveling with at all, might take great photos/videos but when your in the middle of nowhere, no wifi, or phone service and you see the most beautiful view you've ever seen but got no space or anything left to delete what do you do then? Iphones are just overpriced devices and you can get way more stuff with something half the price

As someone who currently has an iPhone 4S with 8 GB I feel it my moral obligation to do everything to ensure no one wastes £69 of their money on this phone.

While is says 8GB, you are actually only left with 5GB of usable storage, a few photos, messages with photos etc and this will very soon leave with you no space, constantly juggling and backing up.

Its soooo slow, I can't even be that bothered to go into it, its just awful, honestly, honestly, paying this for this phone would be throwing the money away.

You know what is worse than an iPhone user? People who bang on and on and on about how crap iPhones are, so dull. People like them, I personally have hated all Apple products since 1994 but that is a personal matter, I don't feel the need to lecture everyone about how clever I am and how stupid they are, just because they have an iPhone. Grow up, your making t*ats of yourselves.

It's £69. 8GB is fine as a spare phone for work, and it has iMessage etc. It's solid, compact and will do a fine job of basic smartphone tasks.

If you want to use it as your main phone and store videos, games and podcasts on it then sure, it won't be much good. If you assess your needs before purchase though there's no reason this wouldn't fit the bill for a given user.

Yes, it's quite tedious. I'm trying to avoid reading comments on the Note 7 recall because I'm convinced they will somehow be littered with snarky comments about Apple...somehow.

People can't just accept that some things are not for them - if you want an SD slot then get a phone with an SD slot, don't moan about it as if everyone else needs one. It's not like Apple have taken the SD slot away at any point having got people used it. Same with removable batteries. There's so much choice in the world these days that I don't see why people don't just live and let live.

I personally don't want an SD slot on an iPhone - prefer fixed storage in high volume where possible. I've had many an SD card break, and I've even left one in a device I sold before. It's just not something I need or want. If people do, that's fine - but they have devices to fill that requirement for them.

8GB is a very small amount of storage these days but I wouldn't buy this, and if I did it would be to use as a second business device or as a small device for nights out, stag dos etc. This still has all the Apple sync features so will work nicely with another iPhone with iMessage, Handoff, etc. You could even put a data SIM in and have all your SMS sent from your main iPhone to this, if you left the former at home and took the latter out.

Well said Mister. If you need it to be your main phone though, (and it must be an iphone,) you're going to need to spend more for something like an iphone 5c.

If you only have £70, something like the a used LG G2 or new Moto G 3rd generation is your best bet, (but that does mean going to the dark side....) Both of these will give you a much better experience for your £70.

There are use-cases for all things. I'm not entrenched in Apple's ecosystem but if I was this would be a good phone to take out with me if I went biking or anywhere else I might not want to take a big phone like the 6S Plus. With SMS forwarding and call forwarding you could put a data SIM in this 4S and just leave your other device at home on charge - all SMS and iMessages would come through to the 4S.

Just one use-case, but obviously if you're platform agnostic there are probably some better Android devices out there. The camera is still decent on this though - I'd be surprised if there was any other device in this price range with a better camera.

I'd have to disagree with you on the camera. My G2 is a 2013 device and has things like OIS and the Moto G is a 2015 device. If you've only got £70 and need a phone with a good camera, I'd be looking out for a G2.

OIS doesn't make the camera better alone, and the G2 is lacking in terms of security updates (as LG have now abandoned it). I'm not convinced the camera is better overall, as I had a G2 and didn't think it was all that great. I thought the G3 was a big step up and the G4 was the best camera of any phone last year.

I'm running ios 6.1.3 on mine refuse to upgrade and still as sharp as mrs Samsung galaxy s6 edge!

It's planned obsolete a long time ago..... Anything above ios 6 1 3

Some crazy comments gave my old 4S to a friend recently, they've been using it a while and are chuffed to bits with it. It wasn't unusable when I gave it her 3 months ago so unless something serious has happened in the meanwhile, I'm inclined to believe these negative comments are a bit whack. Yes it's late to be buying one now - mainly as IOS 10 is due and gradually apps will become unavailable to the 4S. Currently it's useable and runs the latest version IOS and quite well actually, despite the whiners. Of course it's slower - it's got a lesser processor in it - presumably waiting an extra 200 milliseconds for an app intolerable for many people! (_;) I know people someone happy with an iPhone 4 another happy with a 3G - not everyone needs play games and stuff.

I think a lot of people on here are phone geeks with their flag tied to the Android mast, so they aren't capable of understanding that there are other people out there who use their phones differently to them. I know a lot of people who still use a 4S - two of them are husband and wife and are absolutely over the moon with their 8GB devices. Not everyone wants to take photos of everything they see, store all their music on their phone or play games.

I have an iPhone 4s. Five years and it's served me well in the meantime. Although I did make the mistake of upgrading my IOS operating system a year or two back. Never again...

Now my phone runs at a snail's pace. Takes ages for apps to load. And can't connect to 4G.

Definitely upgrading to the new iPhone 7 later this year...

Rubbish deal. 6.5GB goes for the software leaving you with just enough space for Need for Speed. You will need to carry another phone to take photos!
