iPhone 4S: Does Yours Live Up To The Hype?

According to a recent survey, around 40 percent of 12 to 17-year-olds reported owning a smartphone -- and for many, that smartphone is the most talked-about model currently on the market, the iPhone 4S. The new iPhone arrived to mostly rave reviews -- as well as a lot of complaints about the device's poor battery life.

On October 14, 15-year-old Ryan Brophy from Arizona finally held an iPhone 4S in his hands, after saving up for seven months and waiting in line outside of his local Apple store for hours. He's one of many teens who spent months gearing up for the release of the iPhone 4S.

So do you have an iPhone 4S? Now that you've had time to test it, does Apple's newest smartphone live up to the hype, or is it not worth the high cost? Share your thoughts in the comments.
